Among the various production companies, the Disney it was one of those to suffer a major blow due to the Covid-19 pandemic. Many of his films have in fact been postponed for almost a year, while others have been released directly on the streaming platform Disney+.
However, with the recent – and hopefully definitive – reopening of cinemas in Italy in April, the films with the highest budget have finally managed to make it to the cinema.
Jungle Cruise is one of them. The attracting cast and being an adventure potentially suitable for the whole family make it an ideal candidate for the room. And so, after Cruella and Black Widow, the live action with protagonists Emily Blunt e Dwayne Johnson was released on July 28, only to land on Disney + with Vip access on the 30th of the same month.
The live action is also inspired by a famous one attraction of theme parks of the production company, as indeed a film that gave rise to one of the most prolific and loved franchises of recent years, or the first chapter of the saga Pirates of the Caribbean. Who knows if Disney doesn’t hope, after all, to be able to replicate the success.
