Jungle Cruise to hit cinemas and Disney+ this July
It's been delayed twice due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
The upcoming film Jungle Cruise will be released on both Disney+ and cinemas on 30th July, the entertainment giant has confirmed.
As with the live-action Mulan and Raya and the Last Dragon, those who want to watch the film via streaming will need to pay an extra £20 on top of their existing Disney+ subscription.
Both of those became free to subscribers after a few months but it’s not yet known when that will happen with Jungle Cruise.
Directed by The Shallows' Jaume Collet-Serra, the film stars Emily Blunt as a biologist who teams up with Dwayne Johnson’s riverboat captain to find a rare tree with powerful healing properties in the Amazon rainforest.
Edgar Ramirez, Jack Whitehall, Jesse Plemons, Paul Giamatti, Andy Nyman, Quim Gutierrez, Dani Rovira and Veronica Falcon round out the rest of the main cast.
Surprisingly, it’s not the first Disney film to be inspired by an amusement park ride. It joins The Haunted Mansion, Country Bears, Tommorowland and the hugely successful Pirates of the Caribean franchise.
You can purchase a Disney+ subscription for either £7.99 a month or £79.90 a year now.
