When I was a little girl, the Jungle Cruise was one of my favorite rides a Disneyland. I enjoyed the mysterious manmade jungle that for a moment took me to a different time and place. For as long as I remember, the “Jungle Cruise” has ferried visitors on imaginary river safaris set in Africa, South America and Asia. Ohhh and who could forget the corny jokes that Skipper told us to make the experience even more amusing? But have you ever wondered what the backstory is to this ride? Well we don’t have to any longer, Disney just released, “Jungle Cruise” TODAY!
Partnership Disclosure: Thank you IMAX and Disney for inviting us to screen and celebrate the release of “Jungle Cruise.” All opinions are my own.
Dr. Lily Houghton enlists the aid of wisecracking skipper Frank Wolff to take her down the Amazon in his ramshackle boat. Together, they search for an ancient tree that holds the power to heal — a discovery that will change the future of medicine.
This film is both action packed and hilarious!
Watch the official trailer here.
Frank- Dwayne Johnson (The rock) never disappoints. His character is witty, fearless and brave.
Lily- Emily Blunt is endearing as ever. Her role is feisty, fierce, and she is also a fearless daredevil. Iv’e seen the film a few times now and each time I love her more.
But I have to say McGregor- Jack Whitehall is my ultimate favorite. He is witty, poise, and fashionably put together. This articulate English gentlemen has a BIG surprise for viewers. I won’t spoil it for you, but BRAVO Disney! This makes my heart so happy.
