Jungle Cruise: How to watch online in Singapore for just $1.98
This old-school adventure comedy is a treat for the entire family.
Disney is no stranger to re-imagining a popular theme park ride as a film franchise. The very successful Pirates of the Caribbean series is testament to that. But can the entertainment giant pull it off again? Judging by the fan and critic reactions to Jungle Cruise the answer is a resounding yes.
Initially scheduled to premiere in 2019 but postponed a couple of times, the highly anticipated movie starring Emily Blunt and Dwayne Johnson finally came out in July. It joined the Disney Plus library with Premier Access, so it was available for an extra fee. Thankfully, that’s no longer the case.
The plot, inspired by the Disneyland theme park ride, centres on a researcher who teams up with a skipper for a quest to uncover a magical ancient tree.

Jungle Cruise was initially released in cinemas on Thursday 29 July and premiered online in Singapore on Friday 30 July. The movie is scheduled to join the permanent Disney Plus library, available to all subscribers, on Friday 12 November.

As we’ve mentioned, the movie will be available to stream on Disney Plus. The release is part of the Disney Plus Day celebration, so subscribers will be able to watch a bunch of other appealing titles as well. The list includes Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings, Olaf Presents, Dopesick and more.
Subscriptions to Disney Plus in Singapore cost S$11.98 a month or S$119.98 annually. Disney Plus hasn’t offered a free trial since it started, so you have to sign up for a month if you want to sample some of the offerings. There are no strings attached so you can cancel your subscription anytime.
But it does offer discounts from time to time, such as with Disney Plus Day. The platform is offering a massive savings, with the first month for new and returning customers set at just $1.98. It is available only for a limited time.
As for content, Disney Plus offers a generous library of titles from not only Disney itself, but also subsidiaries like Marvel, Star Wars, Pixar and National Geographic. Most of the content is family-friendly, but the platform’s Star channel offers plenty of adult-oriented titles as well.
Jungle Cruise movie preview
Jungle Cruise is a wild ride through the Amazon jungle. When researcher Lily Houghton travels from London in the hopes of finding an ancient tree with healing powers, she reluctantly enlists the help of wisecracking skipper Frank Wolff.
Together with Lily’s younger brother/assistant MacGregor, they embark on an epic adventure that will see them face numerous hazards and even deal with supernatural forces. Along the way, they have to overcome environmental hurdles, face dangerous animals and stay ahead of a competing expedition determined to reach the ancient tree first.
Besides Johnson and Blunt, the cast also includes Jack Whitehall, Édgar Ramírez, Jesse Plemons and Paul Giamatti. The film was directed by Jaume Collet-Serra, known for House of Wax and The Shallows, among others.
Jungle Cruise is an exciting adventure film for all ages, with equal parts humour and action, as well as an attractive cast. If you love movies like The Mummy, Romancing the Stone or the Indiana Jones series, this should be right up your alley. Reactions from critics have been mostly positive, praising the cast’s chemistry, the impressive creature design and the movie’s sense of wonder.
“Disney’s #JungleCruise is a lot of fun – a big, fantastical adventure that feels similar in tone to the Pirates of the Caribbean movies & is packed with surprises. Dwayne Johnson & Emily Blunt are great together, but Jesse Plemons is a riot. Tons of nods to the ride it’s based on,” 1 critic tweets. If you’ve been waiting for Disney Plus to drop the extra fee to tune in, your time has come. Grab the popcorn, sit back and enjoy!
