Disney’s live-action Jungle Cruise movie officially has a new premiere date— and it’s coming sooner than you might think!
On Thursday (May 13), Disney announced that its live-action Jungle Cruise movie starring Dwayne Johnson and Emily Blunt will officially be debuting in theaters and on Disney+ this summer on July 30.
Those who wish to experience the forthcoming action flick from the comfort of their own homes will have to shell out a few extra bucks to do so.
Following in the footsteps of Cruella and Black Widow, Jungle Cruise will be available on Disney+ with Premier Access on the same day it hits theaters for an additional fee of $29.99.
Star Dwayne Johnson was on hand to spread the good news of the film’s release date with fans far and wide, taking to Instagram to post a lengthy announcement video, which ends with a special sneak peek of the movie.
“It’s a pleasure to say we’re back in theaters,” wrote Johnson in the caption of his post. “And it’s a pleasure to say we will also come to you!”
Based on the beloved Disneyland theme park ride, Jungle Cruise follows researcher Dr. Lily Houghton as she travels from London to the Amazon jungle. It’s there that she enlists the help of a wisecracking skipper named Frank Wolff to help guide her downriver on La Quila— his ramshackle-but-charming boat.
Lily’s quest involves searching for an ancient tree with unparalleled healing abilities that could change the future of medicine. But finding the ancient tree will be easier said than done— especially with danger and supernatural forces lurking around every corner of the rainforest.
Jungle Cruise premieres in theaters and on Disney+ with Premier Access on July 30.
