Jungle Cruise Sequel in the Works at Disney

Jungle Cruise, starring Dwayne Johnson and Emily Blunt, arrived in theaters and on Disney+ with Premier Access on July 30th. Now, just a little over a month later, the word is out that a sequel for the film is in the works. The sequel will bring back Johnson and Blunt for a new adventure as skipper Frank Wolff and Dr. Lily Houghton. According to The Hollywood Reporter, director Jaume Collet-Serra will return to helm the sequel and Michael Green will return to write the script.

The World Famous Jungle Cruise is an opening day attraction at Disneyland. Jungle Cruise is a movie inspired by that attraction. Throughout the film, there were lots of nods to the attraction. Some were more overt than others. The film opened to $35 million at the domestic box office and an additional $30 million from being offered on DIsney+ with Premier Access. Since then, the movie has gone on to pass $100 million at the domestic box office.

The news of the sequel follows the recent confirmation that a sequel for Cruella is in the works and Emma Stone will again return to play Cruella de Vil. Dwayne Johnson hinted on social media that he had a meeting about a potential sequel for the film after its opening weekend.

There is no timeline or release date for the Jungle Cruise sequel at this time. The first film was in development for 15 years. Don’t expect the sequel to take that long.
