Jungle Cruise: How to watch online in the UK

This old-school adventure comedy should be 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 has the entertainment giant pulled it off again? Judging by the reactions to Jungle Cruise from critics, the answer seems to be a resounding yes.

Initially scheduled to premiere in 2019 but postponed a couple of times, the highly anticipated movie starring Emily Blunt, Jack Whitehall and Dwayne Johnson was released in the UK on 30 July 2021, offering a good time for kids and adults alike.

The plot, inspired by the Disneyland theme park ride, centres on a researcher who teams up with a skipper on a quest to uncover a magical ancient tree.

Jungle Cruise trailer and review

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 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 looks like 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.
