Disney has plans to team Tom Hanks up with Tim Allen again, this time for a movie version of the Magic Kingdom ride Jungle Cruise.
As Deadline reports, Disney's plan is to have Hanks and Allen star in the live action film. Jungle Cruise the ride, in case your childhood didn't include trips to Disneyland, is designed to simulate a riverboat excursion through the major rivers of Africa, South America, and Asia. There's no word yet on exactly how the movie will adapt that set-up, but it'll no doubt be catered toward the whole family.
Of course, this isn't surprising to anyone who knows how Disney rolls; the Hanks and Allenâ€™s last collaboration, Toy Story 3, has made over a billion dollars worldwide since its release last June. In the same breath, the studio's last amusement park ride inspired movie, Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End (part three in the Johnny Depp-led franchise), also made a killing at the box office, so much so that a fourth entry, Pirates Of The Caribbean: On Stranger Tides, will hit screens in May. Add up those factors and Jungle Cruise sounds like another win to us.
