Disney just dropped the first trailer for The Jungle Cruise and you’re going to want to climb aboard for an adventure with Dwayne Johnson.

This isn’t the first time Disney has based a film on one of it’s popular theme park rides. The latest Disney attraction-turned-movie features Dwayne Johnson starring as Frank, a charming riverboat captain who meets up with determined explorer Lily, played by Emily Blunt. Together they end up on an epic adventure down a wild animal infested river––you know, kind of like the ride.

For the uninitiated, the Jungle Cruise ride itself was initially inspired by a film called The African Queen, which starred Humphrey Bogart and Katharine Hepburn on a similar riverboat adventure. If the trailer is any indication, the new film is definitely channeling some of those classic vibes along with nods to some other famous action-adventures, like The Mummy and Romancing the Stone.

The Jungle Cruise, which also stars Jack Whitehall, Edgar Ramirez and Paul Giamatti hits theaters Jul. 24, 2020.
