Dwayne Johnson drops new Jungle Cruise posters ahead of tomorrow’s trailer
Disney will be releasing a brand-new trailer for JUNGLE CRUISE tomorrow, but in the meantime, Dwayne Johnson and Emily Blunt have released a pair of humorous posters which poke fun at just which of them is the real star of the film. The Disney film finds Johnson playing a boat captain who takes a sister (Emily Blunt) and her brother (Jack Whitehall) on a mission to find a tree believed to possess remarkable healing powers. Along the way they’ll have to deal with wild animals as well as a rival German expedition who are also seeking the same treasure.
You can check out the posters below, as well as a short video of Johnson and Blunt presenting said posters.
Double main event drops tomorrow..

As Dwayne Johnson and Emily Blunt mention, tomorrow will bring a new JUNGLE CRUISE trailer as well as the real poster for the film. We’ll be sure to get that to you just as soon as it’s released. JUNGLE CRUISE will also star Edgar Ramirez, Jesse Plemons, and Paul Giamatti. Disney seems to be hoping that the film will turn into a possible franchise much like PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN, and Johnson has previously teased JUNGLE CRUISE is a “full on adventure. Think Indiana Jones — those kinds of adventures. I’m very, very excited about it,” adding “This is where I really started to understand the power of Disney, just in terms of the deep dives that they do with their projects — with all of their projects, because obviously they’re a studio and publicly traded, but specifically with projects like this where it’s based off a ride and based off an beloved attraction, like Pirates [of the Caribbean], so, so much goes into the work. And it’s so exciting.“
The official synopsis for JUNGLE CRUISE:
Inspired by the famous Disneyland theme park ride, Disney’s JUNGLE CRUISE is an adventure-filled, Amazon-jungle expedition starring Dwayne Johnson as the charismatic riverboat captain and Emily Blunt as a determined explorer on a research mission. Also starring in the film are Edgar Ramirez, Jack Whitehall, with Jesse Plemons, and Paul Giamatti.
JUNGLE CRUISE will hit theaters on July 24, 2020.
