Along with the board game, the Jungle Cruise story will continue to grow with the release of a film entitled Jungle Cruise. The film is set to star Dwayne Johnson and Emily Blunt who’s characters travel on a small riverboat where they meet dangerous animals and reptiles. Walt Disney Studios had originally planned for a October 11, 2019 release, but this date was pushed back until July 24, 2020. The theatrical release date was pushed back yet again to July 30, 2021. Live action Mulan caused the move since its release was delayed due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
In the meantime, fans can experience some Jungle Cruise magic with the Ravensburger board game and by watching the film’s trailer below!
