After announcing the project during its D23 Expo held earlier this summer, Disney has just shared the first trailer for its live-action Jungle Cruise film starring Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson and Emily Blunt.

The adventure film centers on Emily Blunt’s character Lily and her brother McGregor (Jack Whitehall) who hire a boat captain named Frank (Johnson) to take them down the Amazon River in search of a tree believed to have magical healing powers. Along their journey they face off against mystical creatures and a competing German expedition team.

The film is set in the early 20th century and is closely based on the beloved Disney theme-park ride. Only time will tell if this can turn into a hit movie franchise such as Pirates of the Caribbean, which was also based on one of the park’s rides.

Disney’s Jungle Cruise lands in theaters July 24, 2020.
