The Rock was just in Disney’s Moana as the awesome demi-god Maui. This certainly got the Disney bug to bite his sculpted butt, because the Rock is coming back for more – times two!
The newest official film Johnson has acquired is Disney’s Jungle Cruise. I mean, after the success of the Pirates franchise (I lost track at how many Pirates movies there are now), why not create the ride that’s right next to it a movie as well? (Well Indiana Jones is in the middle of the two but Indy already has movies) (actually wait a minute …)
We don’t know much about the movie, but it is now known that The People’s Champion is also doing something for the Jungle Cruise attraction as well?
Grateful SOB to have Walt and Mickey watching over my shoulder as @danygarciaco and I embark on this amazing project. For our big #JungleCruise creative meeting at DISNEY's highly secure R&D facilities, me and @danygarciaco were escorted into THE VAULT. A legitimate vault where all of Disney's biggest secrets and plans are kept. Curtains were pulled back for us to reveal the actual drawn up plans that Walt Disney had his brother, Roy Disney take to New York to present to the bankers in 1950 for the potential loan to build what's now known as Disney Land. Cant imagine what that meeting with bankers was like. Roy: Alright gentlemen, so me and my brother Walt, want to build the greatest multiple theme park attraction in the world. Banker: Oh that seems fun, Mr. Disney. Roy: *smiles in a playful mischievous manner, Oh yes my good man, it will have a few things that are in fact, fun. Well, clearly I don't know how the hell men were actually talking in the 50's, but what I do know is being able to star in and produce #JungleCruise is a dream come true. BUT what takes this to the next level, is that we'll partner with Disney's brilliant Imagineers to help re-engineer and re-design the #JungleCruise ride in all the Disney theme parks around the world. A very special opportunity for us and our @sevenbucksprod to create an unforgettable and fun EXPERIENCE for families around the world. And as Walt Disney himself would say… it's magical. Next step is finding our visionary director. Exciting times. #JungleCruise #TheExperience #DisneyStudios #Imagineers #SevenBucksProds #WaltAndRockWouldveBeenBesties #AndWorkoutBuddies #WaltWouldveLovedMyJackedUpPickUpTruck 😉🤙🏾
On Johnson’s inInstagram post, it says he and Seven Bucks Production partner, Dany Garcia, will be working with Disney Imagineers to update the ride in whatever parks has it. I’m just as excited as he is!
Being a skipper is a task made only for those who are creative, witty, and incredibly funny. I can’t wait to see what The Rock cooked up for us on this ride!
