It’s been since forever that Disney movies cease to capture the genuine emotion of an audience. Many of the stars are filled with joy and usually result in a happy ending. But what makes the movie so good are the characters which the story revolves around. And just like that, Disney is now coming up with another movie that will dazzle audiences to the next level! The new movie is coming up with the kind of surprises that don’t come so often!
That’s right. Because in the new movie, we have Dwayne Johnson and Emily Blunt coming in as the main stars for Disney’s Jungle Cruise! This project is about to be one of the biggest ones of the year!
The most memorable cast ever!
The best thing about a movie is always the cast. Some of our favorite Hollywood stars and grace the movie. It is because of them that the storyline lives on. And for this movie, well, the fans are in luck!
The most bankable name of all time in the Hollywood industry will be a part of this movie. This movie is getting in Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson as the lead actor. His presence in this movie can only be electrified to the next level. He will be taking on the role of Frank Wolff, a.k.a. Skipper. He plays a cynical yet wise steamboat captain who agrees to take explorers on their journey to find the Tree of Life. Many you may know that this is not the only movie that Dwayne is about to drop at any time. It is because of him that the hierarchy of power is about to change in the DC Universe. He is now under production for playing the antihero, Black Adam! So, two significant gifts from The Rock are coming towards the fans real soon!
Along with Dwayne Johnson, we also have another apt name that has been making headlines all over. It is Emily Blunt! She will be taking on the role of Dr. Lily Houghton, an eccentric and adventurous scientist who is on a quest to search and find the Tree of Life.
The famous Edgar Ramirez is also here to grace the cast with his role as Aguirre, a dangerous mercenary who is hired to lead the expedition to search the Tree of Life.
Jack Whitehall is also coming in as McGregor Houghton. He is known to be Lily’s younger brother and enthusiastic assistant who will take on the journey along with her. Along with Whitehall, we also have Paul Giamatti, who plays the role of Nilo. Nilo is a harbourmaster who is in charge of the port at which Frank docks his boat.
And last but not least, one of the most famous roles we have in the movie is Prince Joachim! He is a deranged yet ambitious German aristocrat who leads an expedition to find the Tree of Life for himself. The role is played by the rising star, Jesse Plemons. Plemons is also set to star in Martin Scorsese’s upcoming cinematic blockbuster, Killers of the Flower Moon. The movie will be featuring Leonardo DiCaprio in the leading role!
Jaume Collet-Serra as the director
Another big surprise for the movie is the director, who serves as the mastermind behind the project. He has been a very prominent name over the past few years. It looks he has done quite a lot for himself. It is none other than Jaume Collet-Serra. That’s right. Over the past few years, his work has stood out in the Hollywood industry. He has worked with some big names before, such as Liam Neeson, Vera Farmiga, Blake Lively, etc.
Jaume is now collaborating with Dwayne Johnson on two consecutive projects. Not only is he directing Jungle Cruise, but he is also the director the DC’s Black Adam! So there are two movies back-to-back where Dwayne will be in association with Jaume. We can only hope to see the best of the best from this duo! So naturally, there are a lot of expectations pinned on him as a director. Some of his previous eminent works include Non-stop, Orphan, The Commuter, The Shallows, Unknown, House of Wax, and many other prominent Hollywood blockbuster names!
He is now running towards Disney’s Jungle Cruise and DC’s Black Adam!
A minor premise of the movie!
Of course, many of you might be wondering a little about what the plot will be about. Well, the movie is set in the early 20th century. There is a riverboat captain who goes by the name of Frank Wolff. He is then approached by a British scientist, Dr. Lily Houghton. Along with her brother, McGregor, she is on a mission to find the Tree of Life.
Now, why are they finding the tree, if you may ask? Well, legend has it that the tree has unparalleled healing powers and could change the history of medicine forever. Along with her brother, Lily needs a boat captain to guide them through the dark passages of the jungle to get them to the tree. Along the ride, they are met with several complex and unimaginable situations.
While they are out on the hunt for the tree, another man has set an expedition for himself to find the same tree. He goes by the name of Prince Joachim. It is more like that he serves as the main antagonist of the film. The movie serves as a race between who finds the tree first. Is it Lily and her brother McGregor, along with the help of Frank? Or is it the deceptive Prince Joachim? We can only find out more until its release.
