Jungle cruise, starring Dwayne Johnson and Emily Blunt, has been set to reveal for quite some time now. The film was originally slated to debut in 2020; However, due to the pandemic, Disney has suspended the film’s release date so that it can be released when theaters reopen.

Surprisingly, it seems the timing of pushback worked well for Disney, as both Disney World and Disneyland renovated their Jungle Cruise attractions to remove the previously culturally offensive storyline. Now that Disneyland has completely reopened the attraction, visitors and theme park fans are definitely in the “Jungle Cruise” state of mind. That being said, the attraction’s storyline and the movie’s storyline are completely separate from each other!

Recently, Dwayne (@therock) shared an epic video on his Instagram account, showing Disneyland preparing to host the premiere of Jungle cruise! Watch how Disneyland turns its theatrical scene into a red carpet event premiere for the film.

Although the film premieres at Disneyland on July 24 for guests, the actual film will hit theaters on July 30, a few days later. If you can’t make it to the theater, don’t panic! Disney used the Premier Access feature on Disney + throughout the pandemic to allow viewers to purchase new films such as Black Widow for $ 29.99.

Disney describes Jungle Cruise as:

Join fan favorites Dwayne Johnson and Emily Blunt for the adventure of a lifetime on Disney’s Jungle Cruise, a thrill ride down the Amazon with crazed skipper Frank Wolff and intrepid researcher Dr Lily Houghton. Lily travels from London, England to the Amazon jungle and enlists the dubious services of Frank to guide her downstream on La Quila, his dilapidated but charming boat. Lily is determined to discover an ancient tree with unparalleled healing abilities, possessing the power to change the future of medicine. Pushed together on this epic quest, the unlikely duo encounter countless dangers and supernatural forces, all hidden within the deceptive beauty of the lush rainforest. But as the secrets of the Lost Tree unfold, the stakes are even higher for Lily and Frank, and their fate – and that of humanity – is on the line.
