Jungle Cruise will be offered through Disney+ Premier Access, which requires an active Disney+ subscription plus a one-time $34.99 CAD fee.
Directed by Jaume Collet-Serra, Jungle Cruise is based on Disney’s theme park ride of the same name and follows wisecracking riverboat captain Frank Wolff (Johnson) and intrepid researcher Dr. Lily Houghton (Emily Blunt) as they seek out an ancient tree that’s said to have unparalled healing abilities that could change the future of medicine.
Jungle Cruise will be Disney+’s fifth Premier Access film, following last year’s Mulan and this March’s Raya and the Last Dragon, as well as the upcoming Cruella (releasing May 28th) and Black Widow (coming July 9th).
