Dwayne Johnson shows off the massive set for Disney's Jungle Cruise

Throughout his career, Dwayne Johnson has appeared in some huge movies, but it seems as though the upcoming JUNGLE CRUISE may be one of the biggest, at least when it comes to sets. The Disney film will find 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. Production on the Jaume Collet-Serra (THE SHALLOWS) movie has been underway since May, but Dwayne Johnson shared a video today in which he not only pays respect to Walt Disney, but also shows off the massive set for the film.

In addition to Dwayne Johnson (SKYSCRAPER), Emily Blunt (MARY POPPINS RETURNS), and Jack Whitehall (Bad Education), JUNGLE CRUISE will also star Edgar Ramirez (The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story), Jesse Plemons (GAME NIGHT), and Paul Giamatti (Billions). 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."

JUNGLE CRUISE is slated for a October 11, 2019 release.
