With “Jungle Cruise” pushed back a full year to July 2021, star Dwayne Johnson took to his socials to explain why it was necessary to postpone the release of the family film – and it makes a lot of sense.

Our @disneystudios JUNGLE CRUISE is officially pushed by one year to be released JULY 30, 2021. I feel great and bullish about this date as it gives us time for Disney to be fully operational in all their businesses – theme parks, hotels, cruise ships, but more importantly, it gives the world time to bounce back to living confidently, productively and joyously once again. Thank you, Disney leadership team. And thank you to all the fans worldwide. The movie will be worth the wait. Stay healthy, my friends. D @sevenbucksprod @flynnpictureco #junglecruise #summer 2021
Shot two years ago this July, “Jungle Cruise” will now open July 20, 2021.
