The latest live-action adventure from Disney, 'Jungle Cruise', sets sail for both cinemas and streaming service Disney+.
The House of Mouse is taking inspiration from the HBO Max and Warner Bros. release strategy. 'Jungle Cruise' will show in theatres and stream on Disney's on demand platform from the same date.
That date is July 30th, which means that in Ireland and the UK anyway, it will compete against 'The Suicide Squad', which has the same release date.
Of course, the two features have very different audiences. 'Jungle Cruise' is a family adventure and 'The Suicide Squad' is an R-rated, action-packed, and likely violent superhero movie.
The Disney live-action feature stars Dwayne Johnson and Emily Blunt.
They respectively play "wisecracking skipper Frank Wolff and intrepid researcher Dr. Lily Houghton."
According to the synopsis, Lily travels from London to the Amazon jungle and enlists Frank's services to guide her downriver on La Quila - his ramshackle-but-charming boat.
Lily hopes to uncover an ancient tree with unparalleled healing abilities. It possesses the power to change the future of medicine.
The unlikely duo encounter many dangers and supernatural forces within the lush rainforest.
Edgar Ramírez, Jack Whitehall, Jesse Plemons, and Paul Giamatti co-star.
Jaume Collet-Serra directs.
Johnson announced the news on Instagram.
Watch it now.
'Jungle Cruise' will be available on Disney+ at the premiere access cost of $30. (That's the equivalent of about €22 here)
Stream it or check it out in cinemas from July 30th.
