When Dwayne Johnson surprised Disney's 'Jungle Cruise' riders
The whole world knows how much of a busy bee Dwayne Johnson is, but that does not keep him from meeting and surprising his fans. The 44-year-old actor took to his Instagram page and shared a picture of himself surprising the Disneyland guests as they were about to set a sail on 'Jungle Cruise.'
He captioned the snap, 'Surprise! Once I committed to our Disney partners to make JUNGLE CRUISE, I wanted to dive head first into the research. So I headed to Walt Disney World and surprised tourists by commandeering the JUNGLE CRUISE ride.' The ' Fate of the Furious' star feels that he 'learned a lot' and 'had a great day on the river'.
'It was a GREAT day on the river. Learned a lot.. for example, it takes approximately 12.6 minutes for all the passengers to get over the shock of me jumping on the boat and thinking I'm a DJ look-a-like. One passenger even said, 'Oh the real Rock is much smaller than this guy'. I threw his ass off the boat.'
Continuing, 'Jokes aside (and yes, with me as the Cruise Skipper there will be an abundance of puns) this is such an amazing, fantastical and cool world to build out. The best part about this surprise research day was knowing how FUN of an experience we're gonna work hard to create for families around the world. That's the part that gets I excited the most. The movie. The ride. The experience. It's the cruise of a lifetime. And trust me, you'll want me as your Skipper. Just don't forget to bring Skipper's beer. Next step... we find our visionary director. #SurpriseAroundEveryCorner #ResearchDay # DisneyWorld #AllAboard #JungleCruise.'
Johnson has been attached to star in the theme park-inspired film since 2015. The movie ' Jungle Cruise' has been slotted in for a spring 2018 start of production.
