Disney has released a new trailer and poster for its upcoming adventure movie The Jungle Cruise. Based on the Disneyland ride of the same name, The Jungle Cruise stars Disney favorites Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson and Emily Blunt. Johnson will play a boat skipper named Frank who takes Blunt’s character Lily Houghton on a mission to find a tree that has magical healing powers.
Today’s official trailer reveals that Frank has been searching for the same tree for years to no avail. “But you’ve never had the key,” says Lily, revealing what appears to be an arrowhead with special markings. The vibe of the pic so far is a mash-up of Disney’s Pirates of the Caribbean franchise along with a dash of Indiana Jones and African Queen.
Glenn Ficarra & John Requa and Michael Green came up with the story, with Ficarra & Requa penning the screenplay. Edgar Ramirez, Jack Whitehall, Jesse Plemons and Paul Giamatti also star.
The pic is produced by John Davis, John Fox, Johnson, Hiram Garcia, Dany Garcia and Beau Flynn. Scott Sheldon and Doug Merrifield are executive producers.
