The trailer of Disney's much-anticipated adventure drama Jungle Cruise was unveiled on Friday, October 11. The film starring Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson and Emily Blunt promises to take the viewers on a wild ride into the unexplored depths of the Amazon. The Jungle Cruise trailer centers around a brother (Jack Whitehall) and sister (Emily Blunt), who hire a boat captain (Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson) to row them down the Amazon River as they are in pursuit of a tree believed to have healing powers.
The trailer opens with Emily's character talking about the myth of the healing plant, and then setting out on a journey to reach the same. Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson, on the other hand, happens to be the owner of a not-so-fancy boat, who sustains a living by giving tour rides into the Amazon. However, Johnson promises his boat ride to be the cheapest yet the most thrilling and for which, he is to take them through places infested with aggressive jungle natives.
Sharing the trailer on Twitter, while Disney wrote, "The myth is real," Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson called it, "The adventure of a lifetime."
Walt Disney Studios' upcoming adventure flick Jungle Cruise is inspired by the Disney theme park attraction of the same name. Helmed by Spanish filmmaker Jaume Collet-Serra, Jungle Cruise is bankrolled by Johnson along with John Fox, John David, Hiram Garcia, Dany Garcia, and Beau Flynn.
Set in the backdrop of the '30s Great Depression, Jungle Cruise tells the story of two siblings who set out on a voyage to find a tree believed to possess healing powers. On their journey, they are restrained by several difficulties including wild animals and other competing expeditors. Besides Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson and Emily Blunt, the movie also stars Édgar Ramírez, Jack Whitehall, Jesse Plemons, and Paul Giamatti. Jungle Cruise which was initially scheduled to release on October 11, 2019, is now set to hit big screens on July 24 next year.
