2021 is shaping up to be a big year for Johnson when it comes to Disney! The WWE superstar was heavily introduced to Disney fans after he played the voice of demigod Maui in Moana. Now, fans are excited to see him star in the live-action Jungle Cruise movie alongside Emily Blunt this summer.
Today, Johnson (@therock) took to Instagram to talk about his new Disney Parks series coming to Disney+, Behind the Attraction:
Cool series alert ?
Take a moment now to think about your FAVORITE RIDES when you and family visited the DISNEY PARKS around the world ? ?
From SPACE MOUNTAIN to SPLASH MOUNTAIN – from PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN to JUNGLE CRUISE – from STAR WARS all the way to ITS A SMALL WORLD and many more!
Our @sevenbucksprod is partnering with @DisneyPlus and director Brian Volke-Weiss (“The Toys That Made Us”) to bring you the highly anticipated original series called BEHIND THE ATTRACTION.
A fascinating behind the scenes look at how all these famous and beloved rides became famous, beloved and ICONIC DISNEY rides.
And if you look closely at this poster ? you’ll see a certain big, brown, bald “Skipper Frank” taking his unsuspecting passengers on the ADVENTURE OF A LIFE TIME from JUNGLE CRUISE ? ??
This is gonna be a FUN SERIES for you and your families to watch!
JULY 16th ?
For fans who love to learn more about Disney history and attractions, this series will surely give you an extra hand of knowledge on your next Disney visit and likely, will serve as a great way to combat the Disney blues until you are back at Disney World, Disneyland, or any Disney Park around the globe.
It looks like The Rock is not the only one hyped for this series, as fans are already starting to share their excitement on social media.
