Inspired by the famous Disneyland theme park ride, Disney’s Jungle Cruise is an adventure-filled, rollicking thrill-ride down the Amazon with wisecracking skipper Frank Wolff (Johnson) and intrepid researcher Dr. Lily Houghton (Emily Blunt). Lily travels from London, England, to the Amazon jungle and enlists Frank’s questionable services to guide her downriver on La Quila, his ramshackle-but-charming boat. Lily is determined to uncover an ancient tree with unparalleled healing abilities that possess the power to change the future of medicine. Thrust on this epic quest together, the unlikely duo encounters innumerable dangers and supernatural forces, all lurking in the deceptive beauty of the lush rainforest. But as the secrets of the lost tree unfold, the stakes grow even higher for Lily and Frank, whose fates—as well as mankind’s—hang in the balance.
Jaume Collet-Serra directs the film, which stars Johnson, Blunt, Edgar Ramírez and Jack Whitehall, with Jesse Plemons and Paul Giamatti. The producers are John Davis and John Fox of Davis Entertainment; Johnson, Hiram Garcia and Dany Garcia of Seven Bucks Productions; and Beau Flynn of Flynn Picture Co.; with Scott Sheldon and Doug Merrifield serving as executive producers. The story is by John Norville & Josh Goldstein and Glenn Ficarra & John Requa, and the film’s screenplay is by Michael Green and Ficarra & Requa.
