One year after the highly anticipated film was set to be released on July 24, 2020, Jungle Cruise had its world premiere on Saturday, July 24, at Disneyland in Anaheim, Calif. The high-budget adventure film has been in the works since 2015 prior to its upcoming debut on Friday, July 30, in theaters and on Disney+.

During the premiere — which was an entirely outdoor event — Johnson and Blunt took the stage to address the excited guests, with the handsome hunk telling the audience: “We wanted to make a movie that was really the adventure of a lifetime, it was more than a tagline for us."

“It was something we wanted to deliver to families around the world in hopes that they had a good time," Johnson — who was also a producer on the film — told the crowd, per Deadline. "We hope that achieved our goal."

The Fast & Furious alum also paid tribute to Walt Disney, who opened Anaheim park with the Jungle Cruise ride, in July 1995.

Apart from the event serving as one of the biggest Hollywood premieres since theaters re-opened following the novel COVID-19 pandemic, it was also the first time Blunt, Edgar Ramírez and several other costars had ridden the Jungle Cruise ride.
