You have just made a ssseriousss misstake, my friend. Just you wait ’till I get you in my coils! Kaa is an enormous Indian python and the secondary antagonist in Disney’s 1967 animated feature film, The Jungle Book. In Kipling’s books, Kaa was considered a mentor to Mowgli, akin to Baloo and Bagheera. When the characters were adapted in the film, Kaa’s role was changed to a dangerous villain.
This was most likely due to the developers’ belief that the public of the time would not accept a snake as a heroic character. He was animated by Frank Thomas in his entrance appearance where he first met Mowgli and nearly ate him. Later in the film, he was animated by Milt Kahl whose design for Kaa may be more iconic, being that his scene was longer and included his trademark song and Shere Khan’s talk with the snake. Kaa also has a slight Wile E. It’s like you said You can’t trust anyone! Kaa is a sly and seductive character, speaking with a soft, often entrancing tone to either lure his victims into a weary, dreamlike state or manipulate them into bestowing their trust, thus allowing him to devour them unexpectedly. He furthers this by the use of his iconic ability to hypnotize his prey with his eyes, rendering them enchanted and under his command.
While not as cruel and bloodthirsty as Shere Khan, Kaa is still a fairly villainous character. His first attempt to devour Mowgli was a casual means to eat and survive, but over time, his goal to eat the man-cub was mainly driven out of spite, evidenced by his lines “Just you wait ’till I get you in my coils! Furthermore, he is perfectly willing to kill those who get in the way of his meals, as seen when he sadistically hypnotized, and almost ate Bagheera. Though dangerous and cunning, Kaa is not without his faults, as he can be clumsy and easily sidetracked from his primary objective: to hypnotize and eat Mowgli. This results in his interactions with the man-cub to often end in humiliation to some degree. Kaa is a yellow-eyed Indian python that has grown to be extremely long. He has golden scales and a lighter underbelly, and dark brown spots patterned across his back.
