The past few years have been hard for everyone, but for Disney devotees, being unable to visit the theme parks was an especially disappointing reality.
However, the House of Mouse, always ten steps ahead, decided to bring the magic of the parks closer to home. “Jungle Cruise” is Disney’s latest live-action film, based on the classic Disney theme park ride. Similar to “Pirates of the Caribbean,” the film takes the immersive experience of the Disney parks, adds a plot, and brings it to the big screen for all to enjoy. The film follows Dr. Lily Houghton (Emily Blunt) as she travels down the Amazon river in search of an ancient plant with the potential to change the future of medicine. She enlists the help of skipper Frank (Dwayne Johnson) to help her on her journey, encountering mystery, danger, and excitement along the way.
“Jungle Cruise” is an exciting action-adventure movie, but also full of humor and heart, and the cast’s chemistry is apparent throughout the film. However, sometimes playing around on set led to some very long takes, especially for one particular stunt.
