Box Office Mojo got a chance to talk to Walt Disney Pictures Chairman Dick Cook and asked him about the Jungle Cruise movie, which will be based on the Disneyland ride much like the “Pirates of the Caribbean” franchise is. Here’s a clip from the article:
There will be a family involved. The skipper will play a very important role. He’ll be more of an Indiana Jones kind of guy, with a little Jack Sparrow in him, who’s going to be able to take this family on an adventure that they never dreamed they were going to be on when they first got on board. In true Disney fashion, it will definitely have the adventure and the intensitybut also the heart and the fun. We hope we have a good outline of where we want to go and what we want to do with it in the next year.
