During the JUNGLE CRUISE press conference held at Disneyland in Anaheim, Dwayne Johnson, Emily Blunt, Edgar Ramirez, and Jack Whitehall were clearly having fun during the interviews. Blunt and The Rock continued riffing on each other, and Blunt reveals why she ghosted Johnson when he sent her a video to convince her to join the cast.
JUNGLE CRUISE is now playing in movie theaters and on Disney+ Premier Access.
Dwayne Johnson and Emily Blunt for the adventure of a lifetime on Disney’s “Jungle Cruise,” a rollicking thrill-ride down the Amazon with wisecracking skipper Frank Wolff and intrepid researcher Dr. Lily Houghton. Lily travels from London, England to the Amazon jungle and enlists Frank’s questionable services to guide her downriver on La Quila—his ramshackle-but-charming boat. Lily is determined to uncover an ancient tree with unparalleled healing abilities—possessing the power to change the future of medicine. Thrust on this epic quest together, the unlikely duo encounters innumerable dangers and supernatural forces, all lurking in the deceptive beauty of the lush rainforest. But as the secrets of the lost tree unfold, the stakes reach even higher for Lily and Frank and their fate—and mankind’s—hangs in the balance.
