Dwayne Johnson & Emily Blunt Introduce 'Jungle Cruise' a Live-Action Movie Based on the Attraction
Taking the stage to present Disney’s upcoming live-action releases, Sean Bailey, president, Walt Disney Studios Motion Picture Production, told fans, “We have gone deep into the jungles to find the inspiration for one of our next big adventures—in fact, we’ve gone all the way to the back side of water.” Bailey then welcomed Dwayne Johnson, who sailed in on a Jungle Cruise boat to show a trailer for Jungle Cruise, the upcoming live-action release.
“We wanted to make a movie that was big, that was epic, that had romance, big comedy, big action, but—most importantly—it’s got me,” Johnson said as he introduced the “trailer” for Jungle Cruise with his role as riverboat captain Frank Wolff.
Dwayne Johnson isn't the only big star in the cast, he has a talented and very beloved co-star, Emily Blunt, who plays Dr. Lily Houghton. Blunt drove onto the stage via a classic car, to present her own “trailer” showing off her character.
“We are keenly aware of the responsibility we have for such a beloved property, and that property is Jungle Cruise, the ride,” Johnson assured fans.
Directed by Jaume Collet-Serra, Disney’s Jungle Cruise hits U.S. theaters on July 24, 2020.
