Based on the popular Disneyland ride that could be found in all Disney theme parks across the globe, the Jungle Cruise will be in theaters in 2020.

And since this was our very first look at the film, it had to be introduced in a very special way at this weekend’s D23 Expo.

Dwayne Johnson and Emily Blunt were both on hand at the convention to talk about the upcoming film, which takes some inspiration from The African Queen starring Humphrey Bogart and Katharine Hepburn. See more below for our on-site coverage from D23.

Movie Review: The Nutcracker and The Four Realms
  |  @   |  

The Nutcracker and the Four Realms

Studio: Walt Disney Studios
Rated PG | 99 Minutes
Release Date: November 2, 2018

The story of the Nutcracker may be a celebrated piece of a holiday tradition, but it is one that remains unknown to me. I only know it from the Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky’s “Waltz of the Flowers,” the ballerina dancing, nutcracker soldiers, and a mouse king. However, plot-wise and its storied history is something that I am very unfamiliar with. So rather than have a very conventional adaptation of the short story and dance production, Lasse Hallström and Joe Johnston took a very different approach to The Nutcracker and the Four Realms, Disney’s take on the classic Christmas story.

They managed to modernize the classic Christmas story by embedding female empowerment and diversity into the story. While changing things to be more of a reflection of the current times isn’t anything new nowadays, we have to consider the storied history behind something like The Nutcracker, where there weren’t ballerina sequences or roles for ballerina dancers like Misty Copeland. Now we can see a film with a more diverse cast that will hopefully pave the way for more stories to be told like this. Check out my full review below.
