As if turning two famous Disney rides into movies isn’t enough, the Mouse has set its eyes on yet another franchise: The Jungle Cruise.
Box Office Mojo recently talked to Walt Disney Pictures Chairman Dick Cook about the new film.
There will be a family involved. The skipper will play a very important role. He’ll be more of an Indiana Jones kind of guy, with a little Jack Sparrow in him, who’s going to be able to take this family on an adventure that they never dreamed they were going to be on when they first got on board. In true Disney fashion, it will definitely have the adventure and the intensity—but also the heart and the fun. We hope we have a good outline of where we want to go and what we want to do with it in the next year.
Hopefully this goes the way of Pirates and not the Haunted Mansion (which just so happens to be my favorite ride there). When is The Enchanted Tiki Room coming out, Dick?
