Everyone can enjoy the new movie called Jungle Cruise which is now streaming on Disney+. It’s bursting with laughs and surprises – starring Emily Blunt and Dwayne Johnson – known as The Rock.
If cinemas are open near you, Jungle Cruise will be showing. Otherwise, it’s streaming early on Disney+ but if you’re signed up for the platform, you’ll need to pay an extra amount of $35 to watch the movie – so it’s a good idea to get a few of you to watch it so it’s all worthwhile.
Inspired by the famous Disneyland theme park ride, Jungle Cruise is an adventure-filled, rollicking thrill-ride down the Amazon with wisecracking skipper Frank Wolff (played by Johnson) and intrepid researcher Dr Lily Houghton (played by Blunt.)
Lily travels from London 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 encounter many 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.
Jaume Collet-Serra directs the film, which also stars Edgar Ramírez, Jack Whitehall, Jesse Plemons and Paul Giamatti.
Producers for Jungle Cruise are John Davis and John Fox of Davis Entertainment; Dwayne Johnson, Hiram Garcia and Dany Garcia of Seven Bucks Productions; and Beau Flynn of Flynn Picture Co., with Scott Sheldon and Doug Merrifield serving as executive producers.
The story is by John Norville & Josh Goldstein and Glenn Ficarra & John Requa, and the screenplay is by Michael Green and Glenn Ficarra & John Requa.
