Walt Disney’s Jungle Cruise movie is getting a sequel! The first film, which was released this past July, quickly became one of the highest-grossing films of all time. It is no surprise that the studio has greenlit a second installment.
It was an American film directed by Jaume Collet-Serra. The screenplay was written by Glenn Ficarra, John Requa, and Michael Green based on Walt Disney’s eponymous theme park attraction, which is still going strong at many of the parks around the world.
What was the StoryLine of Movie?
It covers fantasies and adventures of a captain of a small riverboat, a boatman named Frank played by Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, a man who hadn’t left the Amazon River since the 1500s, in London in the 1920s and his various passengers.
The captain takes a scientist and her brother through a jungle in search of the Tree of Life. The movie gets thrilling and fun when the boat crashes into a tropical river and is stuck in an endless loop.
It’s just one of our favorite rides at Disney theme parks, well-known for its originality and authenticity; it will be thrilling to see what they do with the sequel of this movie!
