‘The Jungle Cruise’ 

For viewers who want to experience the eighth wonder of the world without traveling to Walt Disney World or Disneyland, this live-action adventure is the next best thing. The Jungle Cruise features Dwayne Johnson and Emily Blunt on a riverside journey inspired by the theme park attraction of the same name.

This wouldn’t be the first Disney original movie inspired by the company’s theme parks. Previously, Walt Disney Studios released flicks like The Haunted Mansion, The Country Bears, and Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl.

Along with movies like Raya and the Last Dragon and the live-action adaptation of Mulan, The Jungle Cruise will first be available for an added fee, with their “Premier Access.” The Premiere Access release date is July 30. That is the same date that The Jungle Cruise will be released in theaters.
