Dwayne Johnson likens Disney’s ‘Jungle Cruise’ to ‘Indiana Jones’

While promoting his Jumanji film, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson spoke about the upcoming Disney film Jungle Cruise, while making a very interesting comparison.

“[It’s] full on adventure,” Johnson stated during the interview with Entertainment Weekly. “Think Indiana Jones — those kinds of adventures. I’m very, very excited about it.”

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.”

Not much is known about the Jungle Cruise movie, which got the green light earlier this year, but made headlines as Johnson surprised theme parks attendees by boarding a Jungle Cruise ride for a promo photo.
