Inspired by the famous Disneyland theme park ride, Disney’s “Jungle Cruise” is an adventure- filled, 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.​
Jaume Collet-Serra directs the film, which stars Dwayne Johnson, Emily Blunt, Edgar Ramírez and Jack Whitehall, with Jesse Plemons, and Paul Giamatti. The producers 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. Disney’s “Jungle Cruise” releases in U.S. theaters and on Disney+ with Premier Access on July 30, 2021.​

Agreed 👍 From the special effects and the bit of humor it seems to be a mix of Pirates of the Caribbean and Brendan Fraser's The Mummy. Speaking of The Mummy, it's a bit of a shame that Disney doesn't own Universal since Rick O'Connell would've made an excellent S.E.A. member character.

We have Disney+ here at the house but will need to wait for it to become available for all subscribers. "Premier Access" is just a fancy way of saying "You'll need to pay above & beyond what you're already paying for your subscription to see this movie." Between all of the various monthly subscription & service we already pay for I don't see myself paying even more just to watch a movie early when it will eventually be available to all subscribers.

Visually, I can’t help but thinking it’s a reboot of “The African Queen” with Bogart and Hepburn. I’ll see it when it hits regular streaming.
:thinking:

That's an interesting comparison. Now I'll really have to make sure I watch Jungle Cruise when it's available on Disney+. 2021-11-12 is a Friday night so I can make it a 'pizza & a movie night'. :D

(It also gives me enough time to see if I can find The African Queen on streaming anywhere before then.)
