Disney’s ‘Jungle Cruise’ Takes Shape
In the same vein as Disney’s transformation of the Disneyland attraction Pirates of the Caribbean from ride to movie, Walt Disney Pictures is currently developing the script for a Jungle Cruise movie. Box Office Mojo recently talked to WDP Chairman Dick Cook, and he had this to say about the project:
“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.”
I can only hope that by having a “family involved,” they don’t mean that it will be anything like the absolutely cringe-inducing The Haunted Mansion film. Not Eddie Murphy’s finest hour.
