SCHEDULED for a theatrical release in July of 2020, Disney’s “Jungle Cruise” was shelved for 367 days because of the global pandemic.

She’s determined to uncover an ancient tree with unparalleled healing abilities – possessing the power to change the future of medicine.
Thrust on this epic quest together, the unlikely duo encounters innumerable dangers and supernatural forces, all lurking in the deceptive beauty of the lush rainforest.
