Dwayne Johnson & Emily Blunt in Disney's 'Jungle Cruise' First Trailer
"You booked a river cruise and you can't swim?!" Disney has unveiled the first teaser trailer for the Jungle Cruise movie, an "adventure-filled, Amazon-jungle" voyage from director Jaume Collet-Serra (Unknown, Non-Stop, The Shallows, The Commuter). This is the next big Disney franchise based on a theme park ride, inspired by Pirates of the Caribbean, taking us all on another exciting adventure with a cast of charismatic characters. Dwayne Johnson stars as the riverboat captain, joined by Emily Blunt as an explorer. Also with Edgar Ramirez, Jack Whitehall, Jesse Plemons, Veronica Falcón, Andy Nyman, and Paul Giamatti. There's tons of footage in this even though it's out next summer, but boy does it look like a whole boat-load of fun. It starts out like Mary Poppins, but becomes something else that looks wildly entertaining.
Here's the first official trailer (+ poster) for Jaume Collet-Serra's Jungle Cruise, from Disney's YouTube:
