All aboard the rickety La Quila, Dr. Lily Houghton (Blunt) enlists the help of Frank Wolff (Johnson) and his ramshackle boat in a quest to find an enchanted tree before the competing Imperial German expedition can get there first. If they can find the tree and reveal the truth of its magical healing abilities, it could change the world of medicine forever.
Also starring Jack Whitehall as Houghton's brother, MacGregor, Jungle Cruise promises a rollercoaster journey through the lush landscape of the Amazon river, with plenty of supernatural dangers within its depths.

Disney Plus usually costs $7.99/£7.99/AU$11.99 a month, but new members can currently get their first month’s membership for only $1.99/£1.99/AUS$1.99 (opens in new tab) when they sign-up before 23.59pm PST on November 14. The offer marks the two-year anniversary of the launch of the streaming service.

How to save money on Disney Plus
As mentioned, from now until November 14 at 11.59pm PST those not already subscribed can binge a lot of Disney Plus for the low price of $1.99 for their first month (opens in new tab) with this new sign up deal. Not only does that mean you can stream Jungle Cruise on the cheap, but other highly-anticipated additions like Home Sweet Home Alone and Shang-Chi that also arrive on November 12, while from November 24 you can catch new episodes of Disney Original series Hawkeye.
Disney Plus is already cheaper than competing streaming services like Netflix but you can save even more when you sign up for an annual subscription which gives you 15% off the monthly price. Obviously, you have to splash the cash at the start, but with so much content to get stuck into we very much doubt you'll run out of things to watch before the 12 months are up. You're looking at a mere $79.99/£79.90/AU$119.99 for the year (opens in new tab).
The Hulu element opens up a world of Hulu Originals such as The Great, Upload, Helstrom and Normal People. Bringing further great value ESPN+ offers loads of exclusive live sport, highlights and documentaries. The combined bundle costs just $13.99 a month (opens in new tab).
