The trailer of the upcoming American adventure film Jungle Cruise, based on the Disney theme park ride, was launched on October 11. The trailer promises comedy, adventure, thriller and action, all wrapped in one. The star cast of the film includes Dwayne Johnson, Emily Blunt, Jack Whitehall, Edgar Ramírez, and Paul Giamatti among others.
The trailer opens up with a legend about a tree in the Amazon that possesses unparalleled healing powers. A brother (Jack Whitehall) and sister (Emily Brunt) duo hires a boat captain (Dwayne Johnson) who claims to provide “the cheapest, but also the most thrilling” ride. Set up in Amazon, the theme park has marauders and natives of the forest to add on to the adventure ride. Lily Houghton (Emily Blunt) approaches the boat captain looking for a passage up the river and offers a lot of money. At the end of the trip, Lily finds out that “the myth is real” hinting towards the legend of the healing tree.
