Release date and plot

Disney’s Jungle Cruise finally arrives on screens around the world in July 2021 with the film releasing in the US and UK specifically on July 30th.

Set in the early 20th century, the film tells the story of Dr Lily Houghton (Emily Blunt) as she and her brother MacGregor (Jack Whitehall) set off in search of an ancient tree with mystical healing capabilities.

To help navigate the meandering river and the treacherous Amazon rainforest, Lily and MacGregor hire the help of Frank Wolff (Dwayne Johnson), a wisecracking and hard-nosed boat captain.

However, as the group’s journey progresses and more secrets about the mystical tree are revealed, it quickly becomes clear that the fate of all mankind could well be at stake.
