Jungle Cruise brings back Dwayne Johnson

Dwayne Johnson and Emily Blunt explore the Amazon in the new trailer for Disney’s upcoming action-adventure film, Jungle Cruise.

The clip was released recently and featured Blunt as a determined explorer who wishes to find a legendary tree hidden in the Amazon which possesses healing powers.

Blunt enlists the help of a riverboat captain portrayed by Johnson to help take her on the voyage. The duo encounter raging waters and mythical enemies while on their journey.

“If you believe in legends, you should believe in curses too,” Johnson says to Blunt. “You’re going to beg me to turn back.”

Jungle Cruise, inspired by the classic Disneyland and Walt Disney World theme park ride of the same name, is set to arrive in theatres on July 24, 2020.
