The "adventure of a lifetime" is based on the beloved, pun-filled Disneyland ride.

The trailer is full of action, with Johnson and Blunt fighting off both humans and mythical creatures. There're also explosions and what looks like an exciting waterfall scene where Blunt's character declares, "I cannot swim."
It's no surprise that Disney is going after another ride-based movie following the success of its Pirates of the Caribbean film franchise. The Jungle Cruise is even older than the Pirates ride -- it was the only attraction to exist in Adventureland on Disneyland's opening day in 1955.
