Plans for a feature film based on the Jungle Cruise ride began in 2004, the project lay dormant until 2011, then that version fell through and Johnson joined in 2015. Blunt and the rest of the cast joined in 2018 in a revamped version, with filming taking place in Hawaii and Atlanta, Georgia, from May through September that year. One of the most expensive films ever made, the film had a budget of $200 million. Following a year of post-production and further a year delay due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Jungle Cruise was released in the United States on July 30, 2021, simultaneously in theaters and digitally through Disney+ with Premier Access, with music composed by James Newton Howard.

The film has grossed over $219 million worldwide with a budget of $200 million. It received mixed reviews from critics, who praised the entertainment values but criticized the screenplay. A sequel is in development with Johnson and Blunt set to reprise their roles.

PlotEdit

In 1556, Don Aguirre leads Spanish conquistadors to South America to search for the Lágrimas de Cristal[b] Tree, whose flowers cure illness, heal injuries, and lift curses. After most conquistadors die, the Puka Michuna tribe heals the survivors with the Tree's flowers. When the tribal chief refuses to reveal the Tree's location, Aguirre stabs him and burns the village. The dying chief casts a curse, making them immortal and unable to leave the proximity of the Amazon River; the jungle recaptures anyone attempting to escape.

In 1916 London, Dr. Lily Houghton's Tears of the Moon research is presented by her brother, MacGregor, to the Royal Society, claiming the Tree's flowers could revolutionize medicine and aid the British war effort. The Houghtons request access to a recently acquired arrowhead artifact. Lily believes it and an old Amazon map are the key to finding the Tree. The request is denied, as the Tree is believed to be a myth and female scientists are considered inferior. Lily steals the arrowhead and narrowly evades Prince Joachim, an ambitious German also seeking the Tree.

Arriving in Brazil, Lily and MacGregor search for a boat and a guide to navigate the Amazon. They hire skipper Frank Wolff, who offers jungle cruises embellished with faked theatrical dangers and corny puns. He initially declines, citing the dangers, but reconsiders upon seeing the arrowhead. Frank steals back his repossessed boat engine, and the trio departs after escaping Joachim, who pursues them in a U-boat.

In Frank's cabin, Lily finds photos and sketches of modern inventions, as well as research on the Tears of the Moon. She accuses him of seeking the Tree, but he insists he gave up long ago. The Puka Michuna tribe, disguised as cannibals, captures them as Frank was unable to cancel the faux danger he uses in his jungle cruises in time. Angry, Lily doubts Frank's honesty. The tribal chief translates the arrowhead's symbols, revealing the Tree's location and that it only blooms under a blood moon.

Meanwhile, Prince Joachim locates the conquistadors petrified inside a cave. He frees them with the offer to lift their curse if they retrieve the arrowhead for him as their restoration fuses them with whatever was on their petrified state. The Conquistadors attack the tribe and fatally stab Frank. Lily escapes with the arrowhead. As she crosses the curse's boundary, vines drag the pursuing Spaniards into the jungle.

To the Houghtons' shock, a fully revived Frank is found the next morning. He is revealed to be one of the cursed conquistadors on Aguirre's expedition to save his gravely ill daughter. When the conquistadors attacked the village, Frank did not support them and defended the tribe; after years of fighting, he trapped the other conquistadors away from the river, turning them to stone. After living life the best he could despite never being able to leave the Amazon, Frank spent the next three centuries searching for the Tree until he gave up. The artifact would later be kept in a London museum for Dr. Albert Falls.

Lily and Frank continue to La Luna Rota[c] Waterfall and uncover a submerged temple. Joachim captures MacGregor and forces him to reveal Lily's location. Frank, Lily, MacGregor, the Germans, and the Spaniards all converge in the temple of the Tree.

It is discovered that the arrowhead is actually a heart-shaped locket containing a gemstone; placing the gem and locket into the trunk, the dormant tree blooms under the blood moon. As a fight ensues, Lily recovers one flower. The Germans drown, Joachim is crushed to death, and Frank crashes his boat to block the river, petrifying him and the Spaniards. Realizing her true feelings for Frank, Lily sacrifices the flower to lift his curse and restore his mortality. He decides he will continue living to be with Lily. The moon's last beam blooms a single flower, allowing Lily's research to proceed.

Upon their successful return to Britain, Lily becomes a full professor at the University of Cambridge. When the Royal Society offers her full membership, she rejects it, and guides Frank around London.

CastEdit

Dwayne Johnson stars as Frank Wolff; Emily Blunt stars as Dr. Lilly Houghton
  • Dwayne Johnson as Frank Wolff / Francisco Lopez de Heredia:
    A shrewd, cynical but ultimately noble steamboat skipper who reluctantly agrees to guide two explorers on their quest for the mythical Tree. He eventually reveals his true name and identity as the adopted brother of Aguirre and as one of the cursed conquistadors, forever trapped by the Amazon river. He is a trained cartographer who has spent centuries searching for the Tree to break the curse that made him immortal so he can die peacefully. Meanwhile, he has built a town,[6] and a boat he christened "La Quila" for his business under "Jungle Navigation Company".[7] He has had a number of tamed exotic cats as a pet, each one named "Proxima".[d][8]
  • Emily Blunt as Dr. Lily Houghton:
    An eccentric, adventurous and virtuous botanist working in a male-dominated field. She embarks on a quest to find the Tree, hoping to harness its power for modern medicine. Possessing an ancient arrowhead and one of Frank's old maps of the Amazon,[6] she proves she is resourceful and capable in martial arts and lock picking skills,[9] though she cannot swim. She wants to prove herself equal to her chauvinistic peers but gains some notoriety for wearing trousers.[10]
  • Édgar Ramírez as Aguirre:
    A Spanish conquistador who once sought the Tree's power to save his ill daughter, only to be cursed with immortality for his cruelty towards its guardians. Temporarily freed by German explorers, he sets out to take revenge on his adopted brother, Francisco, who sided against him to defend the tribe. His partially decomposed body is now fused with the snakes that were on him at the time of his restoration.[11]
  • Jack Whitehall as MacGregor Houghton:
    Lily's younger brother who works as her assistant. He confesses to Frank that when his family nearly disowned him after he refused to marry, as his interest lies "elsewhere"(he is implied to be gay), Lily hired him so he could support himself.[12][13] A somewhat foppish snob who adheres to proper etiquette and prefers wearing three-piece suits, he seems ill-suited to jungle life, but gradually develops into a more confident, rugged man by the end of the expedition.[14]
  • Jesse Plemons as Prince Joachim:
    A deranged and ambitious German royal, who finances and leads a military expedition with mercenaries to claim the Tree of Life, both to aid Germany's war effort and achieve immortality.[15] He gets aid by the cursed conquistadors after he frees them for his own interest, and he can talk to the bees and snakes.[16][17]
  • Paul Giamatti as Nilo Nemolato:
    The harbormaster at Nilo's River Adventure, Porto Velho,[18] where Frank moors his boat. He is also a business rival, and confiscates Frank's boat engine when Frank is unable to repay him his loan.[10] This leads Frank to wreck Nilo's prize boats in return. He owns a Moluccan cockatoo he named "Rosita".[19][20]

Additionally, a jaguar named Proxima appears in the film, motion captured on set by stunt actor Ben Jenkin.[21][22] Veronica Falcón portrays Trader Sam, chief of the Puka Michuna tribe in 1916,[23][24] a tribe in the Amazon which guards the Tree.[25] Dani Rovira, Quim Gutiérrez, and Dan Dargan Carter portray Aguirre's fellow conquistadors: Sancho, whose decomposed body was fused with the honeycombs that have honeybees riding on them. Melchor, whose decomposed body is covered in mud with poison dart frogs riding on them, and Gonzalo, whose decomposed body is fused with the tree roots and tree branches.[26][16] Andy Nyman portrays Sir James Hobbs-Coddington, the Royal Society's artifact handler who briefly helps Prince Joachim; while Raphael Alejandro portrays Zaqueu, Frank's young assistant.[27]

Puns and references to the rideEdit

Frank's puns are inspired from the skipper's lines on the original theme park ride,[7] and Lily's personality is inspired by the titular character of the Indiana Jones franchise.[28] The boat is named after Mama Killa;[8] while character name of the cockatoo, originally named "Lover Girl", is inspired by the singing bird "Rosita" at Disneyland. The film has several elements referencing towards Dr. Albert Falls, a fictional character at Disneyland who has discovered Schweitzer Falls and has founded Jungle Navigation Company.[20]

ProductionEdit

Early versionsEdit

 
Jaume Collet-Serra, director of Jungle Cruise

In December 2004, it was announced that Jungle Cruise would be developed for Mandeville Films, with a script by Josh Goldstein and John Norville.[29] Following the success of Pirates of the Caribbean, the film was announced to take place within the twentieth century, and was loosely inspired by the theme park attraction of the same name which featured prominently in Disneyland's grand opening in 1955.[30][31] In 2006, Alfred Gough and Miles Millar were in talks to write the film.[32][33] In February 2011, it was announced that Tom Hanks and Tim Allen, who had previously worked together in the Toy Story franchise, would star in the long-gestating film, with a script to be written by Roger S. H. Schulman.[34]

Pre-productionEdit

In August 2015, it was announced that Walt Disney Pictures was revamping the film adaptation, to star Dwayne Johnson. The previous script originally written by Goldstein and Norville would be rewritten by John Requa and Glenn Ficarra with the intention to harken back to its period roots; John Davis and John Fox signed in as producers.[35] Johnson, who did a lot of research before getting into the role,[36] announced in April 2017 that he would co-produce the film under his Seven Bucks Productions,[37] and expressed his interest in having Patty Jenkins helm the project,[38] but in July 2017, Jaume Collet-Serra was announced as the director of the film.[39] In January 2018, Michael Green was reported to have rewritten the script, previously worked on by Patrick McKay and J.D. Payne; also Emily Blunt signed in,[40] as Johnson wanted her to be his co-star.[2]

CastingEdit

 
Édgar Ramírez plays the role of Aguirre

In March 2018, an open casting call was made for the other characters in the film, including men and women of all ethnicities, between ages 17 to 90, and children of 6–14 years old.[41] In the same month, Jack Whitehall was cast as the brother of Blunt's character.[42][43] Six months later, it was reported that he would have a coming out scene in the film with Johnson;[12] this would be the second incidence of a gay character in a live-action Disney film, the first being Le Fou, portrayed by Josh Gad, in the 2017 adaptation of Beauty and the Beast. There was some backlash over the report, with some online expressing anger over a straight man being cast as a "camp" gay character.[44]

In April 2018, Édgar Ramírez and Jesse Plemons were added to the cast as villains with the former being "a man with a conquistador background".[45][46] In May, Paul Giamatti was cast to portray a "crusty harbormaster."[47] In June, Quim Gutiérrez joined the cast to portray one of the villains.[48] In July, it was announced that Veronica Falcón, Dani Rovira and Andy Nyman had joined the cast.[49] Before Falcón was cast as the Trader Sam, a role inspired by a character at the theme park who is originally a male, it was being discussed whether the role would be portrayed by a male or a female in the film.[50]

FilmingEdit

The first span of the shoot began on May 16, 2018, in Hawaii,[51] where a port town was set up at Kapaia Reservoir, Kauai, near Wailua Falls.[52][53] The set took one month to scout, two months to design and four months to build, dress and landscape, while being challenged by the floody rains.[54] Other shoot locations include the town of Lihue, the Kauai Plantation Railway and Huleia Stream.[55] After seven weeks, the shoot then moved for a major course at Blackhall Studios, Atlanta, where a pool was set up in a large tank as the river, as well as the jungle in it.[56] Some scenes were also filmed at Oxford College of Emory University.[55]

Two boats of length "39 feet" were built for easy logistics in filming at both the locations, revealed production designer, Jean-Vincent Puzos.[57] Paco Delgado said that while some of the suits are original from the twentieth century, the costumes for the main characters and the tribals were especially made for the film, for which he researched the cultures of different tribes in the Amazon. He said that Amelia Earhart was the inspiration for Blunt's costume.[58][59] Joel Harlow did make-up for 400 background characters to detail their appearance whether with a sunburn or an insect bite, also he made tattoo designs for 65 tribal characters.[60] Tanoai Reed and Myles Humphus were Johnson's stunt doubles while Lauren Shaw was Blunt's.[61]

The film cinematographer Flavio Martínez Labiano revealed that the blue screen technology was used. Magenta tinted lights were used for a sequence of the tree. He also wanted to show colorful "London in the summer" unlike many other films which depict London in winter when "it's foggy and it's blue".[62][63] Arri Alexa SXT Plus cameras were used, with specially designed Panavision C-Series anamorphic lenses.[56][64] To shoot the underwater sequence, a puzzle set was built in the second tank and then it was filled with water. Underwater cinematographer Ian Seabrook said that it about took two weeks to shoot simultaneously while the main cast was also busy shooting in the first tank, so the stunt doubles had to be present there too. He said that while Johnson was a strong swimmer, Blunt showed no fear despite being a novice in acting underwater. (In any case, the water tank had emergency exits for her to the right and the left of the camera.) The set had to be pulled out of water by a crane so he handheld the camera throughout.[64][65][66]

Filming wrapped on September 14,[67] with about 95 days of principal photography.[62] A few re-shoots took place before June 2019,[68][69] which took three weeks in Atlanta.[26] Johnson shared that the film pays homage to The African Queen, Romancing the Stone, and Indiana Jones.[70]

Post-productionEdit

Ethan Van der Ryn and Erik Aadahl served as the sound designers, while Joel Negron served as the film editor;[26] with DNEG,[71] Industrial Light & Magic,[72] Rodeo FX,[73] Rising Sun Pictures,[17] and Weta Digital[74] providing the visual effects, along with The Third Floor.[75] It took about a year in the post-production stage,[56] but was shut down in March 2020 due to the pandemic, however, it resumed in the summer and completed in September 2020.[26]

The colour of the Amazon river is very distinctive. The water had to appear brown, but not dirty to reflect its organic nature. We also produced more than 200 varieties of trees and distributed them in a procedural way across the landscape in a manner consistent with how they occur in real life. Our widest shot includes more than 10 million trees, bushes and other species.

~ Malte Sarnes, VFX supervisor at RSP[17]

After filming and before the post-production phase, the teams were sent to Amazon rainforest, Brazil, and Costa Rica forest, where they recorded the actual surroundings, including "pristine wildlife and hundreds of species of exotic birds", so the background effects library can be created for the film, using different types of microphones, including ambisonic and parabolic.[26][17] Two Alexa Minis, a drone and several cameras were used for the reference photography and footages, which took about three weeks.[76]

The port town, the water and the jungle, all were built on a limited scale and were extended through CGI to create backgrounds. Plate shots were also captured at the Colorado River; these were used to animate the turbulent and aerated water, so the boat can be animated running at 200 kmph on the river as its journey is seen in the film.[76][77] The 3D team made such effects like "light reflecting off the water, bugs flying around and dew glistening on leaves", so the film weather looks humid summer.[17][76] The submarine was also digitally extended, after it was shot in a tank. To visualize the explosions by torpedo, rubber and wooden structures were used.[17]

The big trick with that was the art direct-ability of the boat, the speed of which you went through the rapids and what kind of splashes it made. I think with a sequence like that, it’s so heavily buried in physics. And if you start to try and cheat those physics, which is what happens a lot of the time, then the simulation stuff all goes right out the window, and it breaks everything.

~ Luke Millar, VFX supervisor at Weta Digital[77]

To portray the character of Proxima, a stunt actor in jaguar morphsuit as well as a stuffed toy were on set. To animate it for the film, a collection of plates from big cats was used with most references taken from a female jaguar in San Diego Zoo, before its 3D modelling and sculpting, with details like a mark on her forehead, a folded over ear, and the muscle and skin system. Other animals were also observed to create its reaction on interactions. A pet cat also made an appearance as baby Proxima.[22][26][78] In sequences of the pink river dolphins, each one was animated separately to build its own character,[79] while the piranhas were also created with CGI.[65][78]

To animate the conquistadors, each character was built with different body parts to make it not completely human. Materials were gathered to study the actual movements of the snakes for the animation,[17] and the character was made serpentine; with sounds of snake recorded from pressurized air releases. The frogs were recorded from Costa Rica forest for the mud guy, while honeycomb dripping sound was used for the beehive guy. The sounds of wood stress were used for the tree guy; whose character was completely animated except some of his only facial expressions. Initially, there were ideas to explore more of the conquistadors with different characteristics, but these were settled on four only.[26][80]

The scene for the Tree of Life was animated after taking inspirations from "Banyan trees, Baobabs, Angkor Wat and native South American trees" to give it an ancient look. The branches were made in higher resolution "to keep the Tree very organic and verging on gnarled". The tree growth and petal variations were observed, and lighting balance was considered, in order to animate the exposing and reverting luminosity of the petals after merging different shots;[81] the sequence also contains fully-digital characters.[80]

Most of the environmental surroundings and water elements were built and animated on Houdini, while the greenery was developed on SpeedTree.[76][77][79]

James Newton Howard composed the score of Jungle Cruise; Metallica also collaborated for instrumental version one of their tracks.

In January 2019, it was announced that James Newton Howard joined the production as the film score composer.[82] By August 2020, it was revealed that Metallica collaborated with Howard on an instrumental version of the song "Nothing Else Matters", for the film. According to the band's drummer Lars Ulrich, Metallica worked on the film after Walt Disney Pictures president Sean Bailey, felt like Jungle Cruise was "the right fit" for a collaboration between Disney and Metallica. Bailey had been "always looking for the right match where there was a way that Metallica could contribute to some Disney project".[83] The band members recorded their parts from their individual studios, due to the COVID-19 pandemic.[84]

The score was recorded in February 2020 by a 99-person orchestra, with vocals provided by 40 members from the Los Angeles Master Chorale. In order to add a "regional flavor", Howard incorporated panpipes and Brazilian percussion instruments.[84] Frequent Metallica collaborator Greg Fidelman served as associate producer and engineer.[85] The soundtrack album was released on July 30, 2021.[86]

ReleaseEdit

Theatrical and streamingEdit

Jungle Cruise had its world premiere at Disneyland Resort in Anaheim, California on July 24, 2021.[87] It was released in the United States on July 30, 2021, in Dolby Cinema RealD 3D, 4DX and IMAX simultaneously in theaters and on Disney+ with Premier Access for US$29.99.[88] It had a special screening on July 29, 2021, by D23 at El Capitan Theatre.[89]

Initially, it was slated for October 11, 2019, before being moved to July 24, 2020,[90] and was postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic. In May 2021, Disney announced that the film would be released simultaneously in theaters and on Disney+ with Premier Access, due to the continued closure of theaters in markets like Brazil and Europe as the SARS-CoV-2 Delta variant surged.[88][91] This is the last Disney+ Premier Access release to date, the following releases will have a 45-day exclusive theatrical window before coming to stream, including Encanto.[92]

It also released in India on September 24,[93] and is set to release in China on November 12, 2021.[94]

Home mediaEdit

Jungle Cruise had a digital release on August 31 and it was released via 4K, Blu-ray, and DVD on November 16; this includes 16 minutes of 11 deleted scenes, and 6 bonus featurettes.[95][96]

It debuted atop the "NPD Videoscan First Alert", ranking first in both the overall disc sales and Blu-ray sales. 55% of the sales came from Blu-ray, including 16% from 4K Blu-ray and 39% from traditional Blu-ray.[97]

ReceptionEdit

PVOD viewershipEdit

In its opening weekend, Disney reported the film made $30 million from worldwide Disney+ Premier sales, with Samba TV saying $23.3 million of it came from 770,000 U.S. households.[98] Through its first 10 days of release, Samba reported the film had been streamed in 1.5 million households for a running domestic Premier Access gross of $44.98 million.[3]

Box officeEdit

As of November 26, 2021, Jungle Cruise has grossed $117 million in the United States and Canada, and $102.4 million in other territories, for a worldwide total of $219.3 million.[4][5] With an estimated combined production and promotional cost of $362 million, the film needed to gross around $500 million worldwide in order to break-even.[98][99]

In the United States and Canada, Jungle Cruise was released alongside Stillwater and The Green Knight, and was projected to gross around $25 million from 4,310 theaters.[100] The film made $13.4 million on its first day, including $2.7 million from Thursday night previews. It went on to slightly over-perform, debuting to $35 million to top the box office.[101] The opening was met with a polarized response from industry insiders, with some noting the film managed to finish above projections while others blamed the pandemic and simultaneous digital release for eating into possible grosses, with one financial insider telling Deadline Hollywood that "the model diminishes the aggregate streaming revenue as well as cuts into a movie's theatrical gross."[98][99] In its second weekend, the film fell 55% to $15.7 million, finishing second behind newcomer The Suicide Squad.[102] The film made $9 million in its third weekend,[103] $6.2 million in its fourth,[104] and $5 million in its fifth.[105]

In other territories, the film debuted to $27.6 million from 47 markets, below its $40 million projections. Its largest markets were the UK ($3.2 million), France ($1.6 million), and South Korea ($1.2 million).[106] In its second weekend, the film made $15.1 million from 49 markets, with the top running-totals being the UK ($8.5 million), Russia ($5.9 million), France ($4.2 million), Japan ($4 million), and Saudi Arabia ($2.7 million).[107] In China it earned $3.3 million during its debut weekend, ranking fifth on the box office charts. This was considered a disappointing opening by media outlets.[108][109] In the following weekend, it fell to the seventh rank.[110]

Critical responseEdit

On the review aggregator website Rotten Tomatoes, 62% of 331 reviews are positive, with an average rating of 6.00/10. The site's critics consensus reads, "Its craft isn't quite as sturdy as some of the classic adventures it's indebted to, but Jungle Cruise remains a fun, family-friendly voyage."[111] On Metacritic, the film has a weighted average score of 50 out of 100, based on 52 critics, indicating "mixed or average reviews".[112] Audiences polled by CinemaScore gave the film an average grade of "A–" on an A+ to F scale, while PostTrak reported 80% of audience members gave it a positive score, with 60% saying they would definitely recommend it.[98]

Writing for Variety, Owen Gleiberman praised Johnson and Blunt's chemistry and said that the film is "a little good old-fashioned" and it "pelts the audience with entertainment in such a lively yet bumptious way that at times you may wish you were wearing protective gear."[113] Korey Coleman and Martin Thomas of Double Toasted both gave it a relatively positive review; even going so far as to predict that other critics would negatively critique it simply because of its premise. However, they were both split on the portrayal of Jack Whitehall's character; while Thomas found it as a positive step forward for LGBT characters, Coleman found it somewhat campy and unnecessary.[114]

Rolling Stone reviewer David Fear gave the film 2.5/5 stars and called it an "attempt to sell the Magic Kingdom's vintage" boat ride as "the next big endless-summer-movie thing", adding that "Blunt's tart apple crisp of a comic performance pairs nicely with Johnson's beefcake served with a side of ham."[115] In The New York Times, Jeannette Catsoulis wrote a negative review that the film is a "soggy mess" with "mostly unintelligible" plot, adding that it "exhibits a blatantly faux exoticism that feels as flat as the forced frisson between its two leads".[116] Writing for ABC News, reviewer Peter Travers commented that "made up of spare parts from better movies and at over two-hours in length", the film will be "tough on short attention spans"; however, he added that it is "better than Haunted Mansion and Tomorrowland", other films based on Disney rides.[117]

SequelEdit

After the release weekend of Jungle Cruise, Dwayne Johnson announced that discussions were underway with Walt Disney Pictures for a sequel,[118] which could answer many questions left behind in the film.[119][120] On August 30, 2021, it was reported that Johnson and Blunt were set to reprise their roles in a screenplay. Michael Green is developing the script, with Jaume Collet-Serra expected to return as director while John Davis, John Fox, Beau Flynn, Johnson, Dany Garcia and Hiram Garcia return to produce with Scott Sheldon returning as executive producer.[121] Johnson later confirmed a sequel was in development on August 31 via a video posted on his official Instagram account.[122] Garcia shared that Johnson and Blunt both have many ideas to explore more of their characters in the sequel.[123][124][125]
