How and where to watch Jungle Cruise
Jungle Cruise opens in U.S. theaters Friday, July 30. But what if you don’t want to go to a theater?
Jungle Cruise is being released on Disney Plus Premier Access on Friday at 3 a.m. ET.
You’ll need a Disney Plus subscription, plus pay the Premier Access fee of $29.99 on top of that.
Disney Plus Premier Access isn’t cheap but could represent big savings for families. No need to buy expensive theater tickets and concessions. And once you pay for Premier Access to Jungle Cruise, you can watch it as many times as you like.
But you can save even more — by waiting longer. If you wait three months until November 12, you’ll be able to watch Jungle Cruise as part of your regular Disney Plus subscription.

The second official Jungle Cruise trailer starts off with a bang — from Emily Blunt’s fist to Dwayne Johnson’s nose! It’s an accident, though, while they’re skirmishing with some locals. The rest of the trailer introduces Dr. Lily Houghton and her quest to find the special tree, as well as skipper Frank’s warnings of the dangers lurking in the Amazon.
