Pirates of the Caribbean meets Avatar with a dash of Disney’s Atlantis, to bring you Jungle Cruise—a rollicking thrill-ride down the Amazon, plucked straight out of your childhood.
Join Emily Blunt (Dr. Houghton) on skipper Frank Wolff’s (Dwayne Johnson) ramshackle but charming boat, on an adventure of a lifetime in a race to uncover a magical ancient tree.
Inspired by the famous Disney attraction of the same name, which Walt Disney himself skippered, the movie not only pays homage to the ride but the films it was based on.
“When I saw Pirates of the Caribbean— the spectacle of it, the magic of it, the transportation of it—I thought I was a little kid again watching Indiana Jones. It inspired me so much that I thought one day I’d love to be lucky and fortunate enough to make a movie based off of a beloved Disney ride,” says Dwayne Johnson.
“I grew up watching ‘Romancing the Stone’ and ‘Indiana Jones’. I watched [them] on a loop when I was a kid and loved them, was transported by them, wanted to be in them. When I read this script, it just pierced my heart directly because it was so nostalgic.“ says Emily Blunt
Jungle Cruise is a big-scale adventure, chock full of innumerable dangers, supernatural forces, lost cities, ferocious man-eating mammals, a wisecracking captain and, of course, his trusty steed.
“In essence [Frank's] boat, The La Quila, is like the Millennium Falcon is to Han Solo—it’s his baby. It may look dilapidated. It may look like a piece of junk, but it’s a beauty when it goes,” says Dwayne Johnson.
If you’re in the mood for an old-fashioned tale overflowing with rope-swinging, gun-slinging, swash-buckling escapades—with German-bad-guys to boot—then all aboard!
