The Rock’s latest film Jungle Cruise is now open for business and plenty of fans have already enjoyed that wild ride. Based on a Disney theme park ride, Jungle Cruise takes many liberties from the actual experience for paying theme park customers. Perhaps the sequel will be more authentic to the Disney World ride.

It was already confirmed that The Rock is not planning to sue Disney over streaming Jungle Cruise on Disney+. That is a far cry from how other stars have handled the situation. There could be a reason for that, because he doesn’t want to ruin chances for a sequel.

Jungle Cruise debuted with a $34 million domestic box office and an additional $30 million on Disney+. Dwayne Johnson responded to praise for the Jungle Cruise film by confirming that they are sitting down next week to talk about taking another ride.

Thank you buddy! Glad you guys loved #JungleCruise and we have a sequel meeting next weekend

It is interesting that The Rock let everyone know about talks for a sequel. This might be a clever way to gain leverage, because if talks fall through then it’s probably on Disney’s end. If Dwayne Johnson is confident enough about things to send this tweet then he must be game for another Jungle Cruise movie.

We’ll have to see if that film goes down. The first Jungle Cruise movie went through a rocky production, and then the release was hampered a couple of times due to the pandemic. Hopefully, fans will get another adventure comedy out of Johnson under the Disney umbrella.
