The storyline: What’s it all about?
The Jungle Cruise movie is based on the Disneyland ride of the same name. Johnson takes Blunt’s character Lily and her brother McGregor — played by British stand-up comedian Jack Whitehall, who you may recognize from the Good Omens series on Amazon Prime — on a mission to find a tree that has magical healing powers.
The journey will see them fight wild animals and compete against a rival German expedition, with Disney adding that there will be a “supernatural element.”
Johnson called Blunt’s character “the female version of Indiana Jones” in an Instagram post in June 2019, saying she has “relentless ambition to find the one, elusive magical thing that could change humanity for the better — forever.”
According to The Rock, his skipper character knows the Amazon River better than any other, and only cares about his money, his cat (his cat, it turns out, is a leopard named Proxima, Johnson revealed in an Instagram Live story on Oct. 11) and his liquor.
“Good luck lady in trying to change the world, and not falling for my charm,” he adds.
Official Trailer of ‘Jungle Cruise’
Disney dropped its trailer on March 10. The trailer shows the pair surviving pirañas, an underwater dive, explosions, a long drop, sword fights, snakes.
The Rock’s disastrous attempt to swing to safety on a vine and a submarine shooting missiles at them. “Everything that you see wants to kill you, and can,” he tells her.
