She decides to go and find that tree. She is accompanied by her brother McGregor Houghton on this journey of discovery. In order to reach their destination, they take help from a riverboat captain Frank Wolff. He helps them and takes them to the Amazon in his dilapidated boat.

Emily Blunt as Lily Houghton
Jack Whitehall as McGregor Houghton
The show is scheduled to release on July 30, 2021. It was supposed to release sometime in 2020. But it will be released next year due to the Corona Virus outbreak.
Jungle Cruise gained a lot of controversy around the character of Dr. Lily’s brother McGregor Houghton. The problem is that the character is supposedly an openly gay man. But the actor playing it is a straight white man. People are upset that Disney will end up implying stereotypes around gay people.
Disney has been trying to mount a movie based on the popular ride since at least 2004. Dwayne Johnson finally teamed up with Disney somehow after several delays and unfavourable circumstances.
The movie will possibly do great in terms of business because it will come out a time when people would be hopefully out of their houses after several months of home quarantine and complete lockdowns. So an outdoor adventurous movie would be a great summer watch.
