Last week it was announced Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson would be starring in Disney’s upcoming live-action Jungle Cruise movie based on the Disney theme park attraction. Now, new information seems to indicate Johnson’s skipper role will stretch all the way to the Disney Parks.
According to a recent Instagram post from the actor, he will also be working with Walt Disney Imagineering to “re-engineer and re-design the Jungle Cruise ride in all the Disney theme parks around the world.” Johnson goes on to say he was at Disney Research and Development facilities for a creative meeting.
Disney has not made any official announcement confirming this and even though this news sounds a little strange , everything points to it being legit. I do love “The Rock” and think he will be amazing in the movie, however my concern is adding elements from the movie to this beloved attraction when we have no idea if the movie will even be good. I mean, can you imagine if they added elements from Eddie Murphy’s “The Haunted Mansion” film to the attraction? Yikes!
So, what are your initial thoughts on this revamp? Would you look forward to some changes on the ride or just leave it as it is? Let us know in the comments below!
