After Bhoot's death in 'Mowgli: Legend of The Jungle', some fans are feeling especially emotional over the young wolf pup. Some viewers say Bhoot's death is the most tragic character death in 2018, while others say they are "scarred" by Bhoot's demise.

Netflix's Mowgli: Legend of The Jungle is already receiving strong responses from audiences. The film is visually stunning with a beautiful score, however, some fans couldn't help but feel extremely emotional over the death of Bhoot, the adorable albino wolf cub.

Warning: Spoilers ahead

In Mowgli: Legend of The Jungle, Bhoot, the young wolf pup, meets an untimely end following an emotional argument with Mowgli.

How does Bhoot die in Mowgli: Legend of The Jungle?

Bhoot and Mowgli are best friends but are both regarded as "freaks" by some members of the wolf pack.

After a disastrous wolf run, Mowgli lashes out at Bhoot, telling at him that he isn't special and that he "came out wrong" (in reference to him being the runt of the pack and albino).

Hurt, Bhoot leaves without saying another world to Mowgli. We don't see Bhoot again until Mowgli enters the Hunter's quarters and sees Bhoot's head on a spike on display. Mowgli sees his friend and cries.

It is heavily implied that the Hunter kills Bhoot to add to his personal collection of animals.

Fans did not see Bhoot's death coming and it is hitting some people very hard.

Fans thought Bhoot deserved better and were left feeling "scarred". Some even called it the most tragic character death of 2018.

Of course, Mowgli discovering Bhoot was the catalyst for his takedown of Shere Khan but it doesn't make it any less heartbreaking.

Who is the voice actor who plays Bhoot?

Bhoot is voiced by Louis Ashbourne Serkis, son of Andy Serkis (who directs and also voices a character in Mowgli: Legend of The Jungle). Serkis, the younger, has also appeared in Alice Through The Looking Glass, Noddy, Toyland Detective, and SS-GB.
