First trailer for the screen adaptation of the Disney ride.

Like Pirates of the Caribbean, Jungle Cruise is inspired by a Disney theme park ride. How do you turn this into a movie? Well it seems you rehash The African Queen with Dwayne Johnson as Bogart and Emily Blunt as Hepburn, but with the evil Germans replaced by all manner of supernatural threats.

Jaume Collet-Serra directs, with Edgar Ramírez, Jack Whitehall, Jesse Plemons and Paul Giamatti also starring.

Jungle Cruise is in UK/ROI cinemas and on Disney+ with Premier Access from July 30th.

Check out the trailer and poster below.

The official synopsis reads:

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 and intrepid researcher Dr. Lily Houghton. 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—possessing 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 reach even higher for Lily and Frank and their fate—and mankind’s—hangs in the balance.
