Walt Disney Studios’ future continues to look bright, even if they have to reschedule some of their more popular titles. They’ve got their own titles, Pixar, Marvel Studios, and Lucasfilm. It’s hard not to have success with those properties at your disposal.
And now you can expect to see some schedule shifting. Indiana Jones 5 is now moving all the way up to 2021. Not only that but Maleficent 2, Mary Poppins Returns, Jungle Cruise, and a Marvel mystery movie have all gotten release dates as well. To find out all about them, check out the full report below.
Following the news that Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson would start shooting Disney’s Jungle Cruisenext year, comes a photo showing just how committed he is to the project.
The actor snapped a shot of himself on board a Jungle Cruise full of Disney World park guests. But he wasn’t there just to mingle. In fact, he commandeered the vessel and was the skipper for the duration of the ride. More on the story below.
Sure Disneyland has a wealth of rides inspired by characters and films, but they also have some original ones as well. With the success of the Pirates of the Caribbean films, it was only a matter of time before another ride got the big-screen adaptation treatment. Jungle Cruise is another one of those rides. The film was originally a Tim Allen and Tom Hanks-starring vehicle, but now has turned into something with an action slant now that Dwayne Johnson is the leading star. But with his workload, it was hard to imagine Jungle Cruise would ever happen. Now there is confirmation that the film will start production in 2018. More on the story below.
While the Pirates of the Caribbean film franchise has been a hit for Disney, they haven’t had much luck with some of their other films based on their theme park attractions (Haunted Mansion anyone?). But, it looks like Disney believes they have something good with Jungle Cruise, their upcoming film based on their Adventure Land ride. On the ride, guests board a boat cruise through an African jungle navigated by a (usually obnoxious) tour guide. A couple of weeks back, the film added some major appeal with the casting of Dwayne Johnson and the addition of Focus screenwriting duo John Requa and Glenn Ficarra.
Now, Johnson has confirmed the film’s setting and tone in an all new Instagram post. Check it out here below.
