Dwayne Johnson loves to share behind-the-scenes pictures from the sets of his movies. Johnson is presently filming Disney’s Jungle Cruise and shared a new behind-the-scenes image. We got a first look at Jack Whitehall‘s character, and he looks a wee bit terrified of the snakes they are holding.
🐍🚢🗺🌴 On set of our DISNEY’S JUNGLE CRUISE and I made friends with a big ‘ol hungry Anaconda. While my brave co-star and good buddy @jackwhitehall did his best to smile thru his fear of snakes. Good times with the animals of the Amazon. Next, me and Jack will swim with the piranhas.. completely against his will. The adventure of the lifetime. #AllAboard #Disney #JUNGLECRUISE 🐍🐟🚢🗺🌴
Johnson shared another image from the set of his co-star Emily Blunt and director Jaume Collet-Serra.

Feels like we’re making something pretty cool, exciting and fun for the world to enjoy. The adventure of a lifetime.. #ALittleDittyAboutFrankAndLily #Disney #JUNGLECRUISE 🚢 🗺🌴❤️
Whitehall’s character, who will be openly gay in the film, has received some backlash as the role was described as “hugely effete, very camp and very funny.” Some took issue with the stereotypical-sounding attributes of the character while others criticized the film for casting another straight actor as a gay character.
Summary: Based on Disneyland’s theme park ride where a small riverboat takes a group of travelers through a jungle filled with dangerous animals and reptiles, but with a supernatural element.
Jungle Cruise, directed by Jaume Collet-Serra, stars Dwayne Johnson, Emily Blunt, Jesse Plemons, Paul Giamatti, and Edgar Ramírez. It opens October 11th, 2019.
