Jungle Cruise Starring Emily Blunt and Dwayne Johnson

Disney has been trying to create a new series of film franchises based on their slate of original rides at their theme parks. Although, that has been met with mixed results. While Pirates of the Caribbean has proven to be a huge franchise, the long-gestating Haunted Mansion ride has proven to be a little difficult to get off the ground. Luckily, Disney has other rides to work with. Their latest is Jungle Cruise, starring Dwayne Johnson and Emily Blunt as they set off an adventure to find an ancient tree with mystical healing properties.

Now the film is starting production, and to commemorate, Disney has released a brand new video featuring the two fighting for some screen time. It is amusing for the most part as the two riff off of each other. Check out the charming video below.

Dwayne Johnson will star in Jungle Cruise

Sure Disneyland has a wealth of rides inspired by characters and films, but they also have some original ones as well. With the success of the Pirates of the Caribbean films, it was only a matter of time before another ride got the big-screen adaptation treatment. Jungle Cruise is another one of those rides. The film was originally a Tim Allen and Tom Hanks-starring vehicle, but now has turned into something with an action slant now that Dwayne Johnson is the leading star. But with his workload, it was hard to imagine Jungle Cruise would ever happen. Now there is confirmation that the film will start production in 2018. More on the story below.

While the Pirates of the Caribbean film franchise has been a hit for Disney, they haven’t had much luck with some of their other films based on their theme park attractions (Haunted Mansion anyone?). But, it looks like Disney believes they have something good with Jungle Cruise, their upcoming film based on their Adventure Land ride. On the ride, guests board a boat cruise through an African jungle navigated by a (usually obnoxious) tour guide. A couple of weeks back, the film added some major appeal with the casting of Dwayne Johnson and the addition of Focus screenwriting duo John Requa and Glenn Ficarra.

Now, Johnson has confirmed the film’s setting and tone in an all new Instagram post. Check it out here below.

Deadline is reporting that The Walt Disney Company isn’t done with Tom Hanks and Tim Allen quite yet. The company is reportedly seeking to re-team the two actors, who voiced Woody and Buzz Lightyear in all three Toy Story movies, in a live-action project called Jungle Cruise.

The movie will be based on the theme park ride of the same name found at Disney’s Magic Kingdom. The ride sees park-goers jumping on a riverboat and navigating many rivers as animatronic animals pass by. The script is being written by Roger S.H. Schulman, who was a writer on Shrek and has penned many of Disney’s sequels like Mulan II, The Jungle Book 2, and Bambi II.
