Today Disney released two new trailers for the upcoming “Jungle Cruise” film staring Dwayne Johnson and Emily Blunt, or as they actors jokingly misname each other “Dave Gobson” and “Ethel Brunt.”
The new trailers were each prefaced by the two lead actors while making jokes about how it’s about their character. Then a trailer follows featuring that character. These two are hilarious together. I love how they play up their relationship leading up the very delayed film. It keeps it interesting.
Plus they each got a new poster as well!
Dwayne Johnson talks about the film and his character Skipper Frank:
Emily Blunt has some fun hitting back with her trailer about the character she’s playing Dr. Lily Houghton:
I’m just happy we’re finally getting the film after all the delays due to the COVID-19 Pandemic! It’s a film our family has been waiting a long time to see (Please don’t suck!)
Here’s the write-up:
“Inspired by the famous Disneyland theme park ride, Disney’s “Jungle Cruise” is an adventure-filled, 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. ”
The film will release in theaters and on Disney+ Premier Access on July 30, 2021!
