Dwayne Johnson is Meeting With Disney About a JUNGLE CRUISE Sequel Following Its Box Office Success
Disney’s Jungle Cruise ended up having a very successful opening weekend at the box office. According to Disney, it opened with “an estimated total of more than $90 million globally, including $34.2 million in domestic box office, $27.6 million in international box office, and over $30 million in Disney+ Premier Access consumer spend globally.” That’s actually pretty damn good considering the ongoing pandemic. I’m actually happy that the film is doing well at the box office as it’s a really good movie! Also, a successful box office draw means that Disney is going to want to make a sequel. Johnson confirmed Disney’s interest in a sequel in an update he shared on Twitter. In that tweet, he says that he has a meeting with Disney next weekend.If you haven’t watched Jungle Cruise yet, you should check it out! It’s a really fun and adventurous family flick.
