Jungle Cruise: a sequel for Dwayne Johnson, Emily Blunt and Disney?
With Jungle Cruise off to a good box office start, Dwayne Johnson has announced he will meet Disney soon to discuss a sequel.
On display since July 28 in France, the great Disney adventure film has won over the public. On its official website, the studio also welcomed this good start, noting that the film took the lead at the box office with an overall total estimated at more than $ 90 million.
A score that includes 34.2 million dollars collected in the United States, 27.6 million totaled in the rest of the world and more than 30 million recorded thanks to the release of the film in Premier Access on Disney +.
Under these conditions, it’s hard to imagine that the studio isn’t already thinking about a possible sequel. This was confirmed by Dwayne Johnson, who is headlining Jungle Cruise with Emily Blunt, on Twitter.

It remains to be seen if Emily Blunt will be up for it, knowing that it is rumored that the actress could, like Scarlett Johansson, sue Disney following the release of Jungle Cruise in streaming…
