Dwayne Johnson Compares Disney's JUNGLE CRUISE Movie To INDIANA JONES

Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson sheds some light on his upcoming Disney film Jungle Cruise, while making a very interesting comparison. See what the star has to say about the movie adaptation of the popular ride

Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson is doing the rounds this holiday season as we prepare for the release of Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle. Shortly after that film's debut on December 20, Johnson will once again return to the wilderness in Disney's upcoming Jungle Cruise movie, based on the popular Disney theme park ride.

Not much is known about the Jungle Cruise movie, which got the green light earlier this year, but speaking to Entertainment Weekly, the star shed some brief details and made a very intriguing comparison. Specifically, Johnson revealed that he will star as the captain of a boat, and that the boat is on the Amazon River - two details we pretty much figured up until this point.

However, he then made a comparison that will surely intrigue many moviegoers. “[It’s] full on adventure,” Johnson added. “Think Indiana Jones — those kinds of adventures. I’m very, very excited about it.”

That's quite the comparison to make, and one that can be interpreted a number of ways. With filming set to begin in Spring 2018, we'll have to wait and see just how Indiana Jones-like the adventure will be. Though to be fair, a similar comparison could be made with Johnson's soon-to-be-released film Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle, which has a more light-hearted approach to the whole tomb raiding wilderness adventure.

As for working with Disney on the project, Johnson had nothing but positive things to say about the company and Jungle Cruise.

“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,” Johnson said. “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
does not yet have a release date, but we certainly have a lot to look forward to.
