Jungle Cruise, Disney's action-packed adventure starring Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson and Emily Blunt, is now available to stream online. Ready to set sail on a fun, family-friendly voyage? Read on to find out how to watch Jungle Cruise on Disney Plus with Premier Access...

Based on Walt Disney's iconic theme park ride (yes, really), Jungle Cruise sees Dr Lily Houghton (Blunt) and wisecracking skipper Frank Wolff (The Rock) team up for the adventure of a lifetime on a rollicking ride down the Amazon river. But with supernatural forces lurking in the trees, the fate of La Quila – and all who sail on her – hangs in the balance. Paul Giamatti also stars as harbourmaster Nilo.

Jungle Cruise premieres in cinemas worldwide on Friday 30th July, but you can also stream Jungle Cruise at home on the same day. Grab some popcorn as we reveal how to watch Jungle Cruise on Disney+ with Premier Access.

Disney Plus is the place to watch Jungle Cruise. Viewers in the UK, USA, Australia and most European territories can stream Jungle Cruise from 30th July by subscribing and then paying a one-off fee:

1. Sign up to Disney+
Disney+ is great value at just £7.99 ($7.99, AU$8.99) per month. Or you can save 15% and buy an annual subscription for £79.90 ($79.99, AU$89.99)

2. Purchase Jungle Cruise
Once you've done that, you'll find Jungle Cruise available to buy (from 3am ET / 8am BST on Friday 30th July) through the Premier Access section of the Disney+ app for £19.99 ($29.99, AU$34.99).

3. Enjoy!
As a Disney+ subscriber you'll also get access to a vast universe of other content including all the Marvel movies, the complete Star Wars library, every episode of The Simpsons, all your favourite Pixar films, plus classics such as Mary Poppins.

When you think about it, Disney+ Premier Access costs a lot less than a family outing to the cinema (and that's before you buy the popcorn and drinks). Better yet, once you pay for Premier Access to Jungle Cruise, you can watch it as many times as you like.

How can I get Disney Plus? 

Very easily. The Disney+ app is available on a range of TVs, phones and streaming devices, including iPhones, iPads, the iPod Touch and Apple TV, Android phones, Android TVs, Chromecast devices, Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Roku streaming players, Now TV's Smart Stick (take note here: Disney+ isn't available on any Now TV daily or weekly TV pass) and Roku TVs.

Disney+ can also be found on the Sky Q platform.

What is Disney Plus Premier Access?

Disney+ Premier Access allows subscribers to watch brand new movies at an additional cost, before the films are made available to all Disney+ subscribers.

Disney dreamed up the idea in 2020 in response to the widespread closure of cinemas. It provides a neat way to see major releases such as Black Widow and Jungle Cruise from the comfort of your own home. 

All Premier Access titles are available through Disney Plus in 4K Dolby Vision HDR and with immersive Dolby Atmos sound, making the experience as cinematic as possible – assuming your devices support those formats.

Can I watch Jungle Cruise in 4K, HDR and Dolby Atmos?

Short answer: yes. Providing you have a TV or home cinema set-up that is compatible with 4K, Dolby Vision HDR and Dolby Atmos, you'll be able to watch Jungle Cruise in the best possible quality.

Disney+ titles are displayed and play in the maximum quality available through your hardware, so if, for example, your TV supports all three technologies you'll see the logos for each within the title's description on the Disney+ interface.
