The Rock’s Jungle Cruise hasn’t even finished shooting, but the film’s social media push is in full swing. A few weeks ago we saw an initial in-costume video from the set and a full reveal of said gorgeous set via Twitter. Now, Dwayne Johnson is using Instagram to show off his new friend: a massive anaconda.

🐍🚢🗺🌴 On set of our DISNEY’S JUNGLE CRUISE and I made friends with a big ‘ol hungry Anaconda. While my brave co-star and good buddy @jackwhitehall did his best to smile thru his fear of snakes. Good times with the animals of the Amazon. Next, me and Jack will swim with the piranhas.. completely against his will. The adventure of the lifetime. #AllAboard #Disney #JUNGLECRUISE 🐍🐟🚢🗺🌴
The post, which features a snake so big it’s almost as thick as The Rock’s biceps, also includes our first look at his co-star, Jack Whitehall. The British actor has mostly appeared in BBC productions and has a pretty obvious fear of snakes (which is confirmed by Johnson’s caption).
The film, which is still over a year away, has had very few details released. Later in the post, Johnson hints at some story points, saying: “Next, me and Jack will swim with the piranhas... completely against his will. The adventure of a lifetime.” It’s still a mystery how the snakes and piranhas are introduced, but The Rock sure seems to be having a blast while filming.
Jungle Cruise, which is based on Disney Parks’ classic attraction, will release in October 2019. It is directed by Jaume Collet-Serra and also stars Emily Blunt, Jesse Plemons and Paul Giamatti.
