The marketing campaign for Disney’s Jungle Cruise has officially started to ramp up, with a brand-new trailer and a Drew Struzan inspired poster teasing all of its big-screen thrills audiences will be able to experience as of July 30th. Veteran action filmmaker Jaume Collet-Serra helms the project, while Dwayne Johnson, Emily Blunt, Édgar Ramirez, Jack Whitehall, Jesse Plemons and Paul Giamatti will star in an adaptation of one of Disney’s most popular attractions. It’s worth noting that Johnson and Collet-Serra will be re-teaming next year with the release of DC’s Black Adam. Here’s the official plot synopsis from Disney: 

“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.”
