So...Get ready for jungle-themed puns and Disneyland references as the Jungle Cruise movie finally hits theaters in July 2021, starring Disney favorites Dwayne "the Rock" Johnson and Emily Blunt.

The plot and trailers: What's Jungle Cruise all about?

The Jungle Cruise movie is based on the Disneyland ride of the same name. Johnson plays a boat skipper named Frank, who takes Blunt's character Lily and her brother McGregor on a mission to find a tree that has magical healing powers. (McGregor is played by British stand-up comedian Jack Whitehall, who you may recognize from the Good Omens series on Amazon Prime.)

The journey will see them fight wild animals and compete against a rival German expedition, with Disney adding that there will be a "supernatural element."

According to Blunt, who also starred in Disney's recent Mary Poppins Returns, "it's a love story." Much of the information on filming, production, plot and cast originally came from the Rock's Instagram page. "[It's] the adventure of a lifetime," he said in a behind-the-scenes video. The Rock also previously voiced Moana character Maui for Disney.

Ahead of the upcoming release date, a new trailer dropped in late May, showing off Jesse Plemons' submarine-captaining villain.

Disneyland's Jungle Cruise: What is it?

It's no surprise that Disney is going after another ride-based movie, after the success of its Pirates of the Caribbean film franchise. The Jungle Cruise is even older than the Pirates ride -- it was the only attraction to exist in Adventureland on Disneyland's opening day in 1955.

The Jungle Cruise attraction features a boat ride through a man-made jungle, with each tour led by a skipper who follows a pun-filled script. The boat travels past crocodiles, piranhas, monkeys, elephants, rhinos, cannibals, hippos and of course the infamous back side of water, the eighth wonder of the world.

As he prepared for the movie, Johnson said on Instagram, Disney's Imagineers let him see the original Jungle Cruise concept art from the 1950s, as well as giving him an "oral/visual history lesson behind the iconic ride and its infamous and relentlessly entertaining skippers."

The ride is currently being overhauled at both Disneyland and Disney World to include new scenes and remove out-of-date cultural depictions. It's set to reopen at Disneyland on July 16, in time for the movie's release.
