The latest entry into the “Disney ride becomes a film” series is one step closer to release as filming on Jungle Cruise has officially wrapped. The movie stars Dwayne Johnson (Rampage), who plays a riverboat captain hired to take a scientist (Emily Blunt) and her brother (Jack Whitehall) on an expedition to find a tree that possesses healing powers.
Johnson and Blunt posted the following the video on the Disney Studios Twitter account:
After some goofing around, both stars showed their appreciation for the hard-working crew, and then they all celebrated by throwing up captain’s hats into the air signifying graduation of sorts.
With the success of the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise and the star power of Johnson and Blunt, Jungle Cruise looks to be the start of something special for Disney. There is a plethora of rides and creativity that comes out of both Disneyland and Disney World, and it will be fascinating to see what’s next.
Jungle Cruise, directed by Jaume Collet-Serra, will open in theaters October 19th, 2019.
