“Join fan favourites Dwayne Johnson and Emily Blunt for the adventure of a lifetime on Disney’s Jungle Cruise, a rollicking thrill-ride down the Amazon with wisecracking skipper Frank Wolff and intrepid researcher Dr. Lily Houghton. Lily travels from London, England to the Amazon jungle and enlists Frank’s questionable services to guide her downriver on La Quila — his ramshackle-but-charming boat.
“Lily is determined to uncover an ancient tree with unparalleled healing abilities — possessing the power to change the future of medicine. Thrust on this epic quest together, the unlikely duo encounters innumerable dangers and supernatural forces, all lurking in the deceptive beauty of the lush rainforest. But as the secrets of the lost tree unfold, the stakes reach even higher for Lily and Frank and their fate — and mankind’s — hangs in the balance.”
Jungle Cruise is based on Walt Disney’s The Jungle Cruise, an iconic theme park attraction that features a simulated riverboat ride through diverse geographic locations in various Disney Parks worldwide.
Produced under the banner of Walt Disney Pictures, its producers are John Davis, John Fox, Dany Garcia, Beau Flynn, Dwayne Johnson, Hiram Garcia.
Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson said:
“The reason why he created Jungle Cruise was because he wanted to create an experience for people who weren’t able to travel the globe at that time. And bring other parts of the world to the people. My history with Jungle Cruise goes way back. When I was just a little punk kid who had a huge afro. We lived in Florida, and so we had this opportunity to go to Disney. I remember riding the Jungle Cruise and it’s exciting, it’s tantalizing in a way, and you don’t know what’s around the corner. You’re transported into this other world.”
The footage focuses on Dr. Lily (Emily Blunt) who sets on an adventure to the Amazon in search of a magical tree, ‘The Tears of the Moon’ that is confirmed to have unusual healing powers. She comes across the steamboat captain Frank (Dwayne Johnson) and they unite on this interesting joy ride packed with laughter, action and monsters.
