Intrepid researcher, Doctor Lily Houghton leaves London to explore the Amazon jungle in search of a miraculous cure. To descend the river, she hired Frank Wolff, a rogue captain as dubious as his dilapidated old boat. Determined to discover the centuries-old tree whose extraordinary healing powers could change the future of medicine, Lily embarks on an epic quest. The unlikely duo will therefore face innumerable dangers – not to mention supernatural forces – hidden under the lush splendor of the rainforest. As the secrets of the lost tree slowly unfold, the stakes turn out to be even greater for Lily and Frank. It is not only their destiny that is at stake, but that of all of humanity …
The third Disney attraction to be adapted on the big screen after Pirates of the Caribbean and The Haunted Manor, Jungle Cruise is offering a spectacular new trailer after the one unveiled last October.
The film takes place in the 1920s and tells the story of a boat crew in search of a magic tree that would have the power to heal. As in the original attraction, the characters will face wild animals and members of a competing expedition.
Dwayne Johnson, whose look is reminiscent of that of Kirk Douglas in 20,000 leagues under the sea, has also compared the duo he forms with Emily Blunt to that of Humphrey Bogart and Katharine Hepburn in John’s African Queen Huston. This feature film strongly inspired the designers of the Disney attraction in 1955. Remember that Dwayne Johnson and Emily Blunt have already taken their first steps in the Disney universe: the first in demi-Dieu in Vaiana and the second in Mary Poppins .
After a long period of post-production and after a postponed release, spectators will finally be able to embark on the Jungle Cruise adventure on July 29, 2020. Note that the work is produced by the Spanish Jaume Collet- Serra (Esther, Non-Stop, The Passenger).
