Jungle Cruise is a fast-paced, high-octane Disney adventure that takes viewers deep into the Amazon jungle. Directed by Jaume Collet-Serra, Jungle Cruise stars Dwayne Johnson, Emily Blunt, Edgar Ramirez, Jack Whitehall, Jesse Plemons and Paul Giamatti.

In August 2015, it was announced that Walt Disney Pictures was redeveloping a film adaptation based on Jungle Cruise, to star Dwayne Johnson. The previous screenplay, originally written by John Norville and Josh Goldstein, was rewritten by John Requa and Glenn Ficarra, and the film produced by John Davis and John Fox, with the intention of returning to its period roots. In April 2017, Johnson expressed interest in having Patty Jenkins direct the project, but in July 2017, Jaume Collet-Serra was announced as the film's director. In January 2018, Emily Blunt was announced as a key cast member. That same month, Michael Green reportedly rewrote the script, previously worked on by Patrick McKay and J.D. Payne. In March 2018, Jack Whitehall was cast as the brother of Blunt's character. In April 2018, Édgar Ramírez and Jesse Plemons were added to the cast as villains, the former being "a man with a conquistador background." In May 2018, Paul Giamatti was cast as a "crusty harbor captain." In June 2018, Quim Gutiérrez joined the cast as one of the villains.

Principal photography began on May 14, 2018 in Hawaii and Atlanta. Filming wrapped after several months on September 14, 2018. Joel Negron serves as editor on the film, while DNEG, Industrial Light & Magic, Rodeo FX, Rising Sun Pictures and Weta Digital provide visual effects.

Intrepid researcher Dr. Lily Houghton leaves London for South America in search of a miraculous cure. To sail down the Amazon River, she hires Frank Wolff, a shrewd captain as dubious as his dilapidated old raft, La Quila. Determined to discover the age-old tree whose extraordinary healing powers could change the future of medicine, the two embark on an epic quest. The unlikely duo will team up to face countless dangers - not to mention supernatural forces - hidden beneath the lush splendor of the rainforest. As the secrets of the lost tree are gradually revealed, the stakes become even higher for Lily and Frank. It's not just their fate that's at stake, but that of all humanity...
