Dwayne Johnson has confirmed the start date for Disney’s Jungle Cruise movie. The live-action film is based on the Adventureland theme park ride and takes loose inspiration from the type of globe-trotting Hollywood adventure movies that Indiana Jones (also an Adventureland ride in Disneyland) is descended from. Jungle Cruise‘s visual effects supervisor Jake Morrison has even referred to the film as “Dwayne Johnson’s Indiana Jones“, lest anyone think that Disney and The Rock aren’t hoping for a franchise out of this one.
Naturally, both Johnson and Mirrson have name-dropped Pirates of the Caribbean as another source of inspiration for the Jungle Cruise movie. The whimsical ride turned blockbuster series seems to have finally run out of gas after five movies, but it was the hot new thing in Hollywood when Gore Verbinski’s The Curse of the Black Pearl hit the scene in 2003. According to Johnson, Verbinski’s film (itself as much a throwback to Errol Flynn’s swashbucklers as an adaptation of the Disney park ride) left a lasting impression on him, starting from the very first trailer.
