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.

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.
