Jungle Cruise Plot
The movie follows the adventure of Lily Houghton (Emily Blunt) and her brother McGregor Houghton (Jack Whitehall) as they enlist the help of skipper Frank Wolff to help them navigate the Amazon in search of a magical tree with supernatural healing abilities.
Frank claims that he knows the Amazons better than anyone and that he himself has searched for the tree for quite some time, but failed to find it, hence concluding it is a myth.
Lily however claims she has the key to finding it with her.
The journey will see them fight wild animals and compete against a rival German expedition, with Disney adding that there will be a “supernatural element.”
Lily wants to find the tree and use its powers for the betterment of the human race, she fears that in the hands of others that same power might be used to harm instead of heal.
