First Image of Dwayne Jhonson aka The Rock and Jack Whitehall in Disney’s Jungle Cruise
“On set of our DISNEY’S JUNGLE CRUISE and I made friends with a big ‘ol hungry Anaconda.
“While my brave co-star and good buddy @jackwhitehall did his best to smile thru his fear of snakes. Good times with the animals of the Amazon. Next, me and Jack will swim with the piranhas.. completely against his will. The adventure of the lifetime.” – wrote Dwayne Jhonson aka The Rock while sharing what is the first image from Disney’s upcoming film Jungle Cruise.
The image shows a very happy Dwayne and an absolutely terrified Jack Whitehall with a big Anaconda.

Jack Whitehall has been under the fire lately because he will be playing the first openly gay character in a Disney movie.
Jungle Cruise will also star Emily Blunt and is set to arrive in cinemas on 11 October, 2019.
*watch ‘til the end and see one of the most awe inspiring & massive sets ever built from scratch. Walt Disney, this one’s for you buddy! 🧢 🤙🏾💫 Officially kicked off our @DisneysJungleCruise start of production with great respect, love, energy & mana. How cool is it that in 1955 when Disneyland first opened, Walt Disney himself, imagined and designed the first ever JUNGLE CRUISE ride. And he was the ride’s first skipper as well! A role that now I have the honor of bringing to life along with my incomparable co-star Emily Blunt ❤️ Heartfelt MAHALO to my home state of HAWAII for once again being a beautiful and exotic backdrop for one of my films. And for welcoming me and our big production back to the islands to help boost some economics and help our hard working locals and businesses. Honestly, this role is a dream come true and my gratitude & motivation to deliver something great is boundless. And 🤯🥃 now I need a drink. Welcome to the adventure of a lifetime… #JUNGLECRUISE 🚢 🗺🌴❤️
Jungle Cruise is an adventure film based on the Disney theme park attraction that goes by the same name. In this theme park ride a small riverboat takes a group of travelers through a jungle filled with dangerous animals and reptiles, but with a supernatural element.
“For the past four months we’ve been puttin’ in the hard work filming DISNEY’S JUNGLE CRUISE. This image reflects the genuine love and laughs that is our daily DNA. My incomparable co-star, Emily Blunt and our brilliant & passionate Spanish filmmaker, Jaume Collet-Serra. Feels like we’re making something pretty cool, exciting and fun for the world to enjoy. The adventure of a lifetime.. #ALittleDittyAboutFrankAndLily #Disney #JUNGLECRUISE 🚢 🗺🌴❤️” (via @therock) 📸: @hhgarcia41
