The Case of The Cursed Jungle Cruise

In this episode we investigate Disney's new adventure film Jungle Cruise, starring Emily Blunt and Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson. Hoping to copy the success of the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise, Disney's latest attempt to turn a theme park attraction into a blockbuster movie tries to sidestep some of the ride’s more racist history but still leans on tropes of exoticism and colonial adventurism. We also discuss Disney's baffling choice to include a series of gay jokes in the movie.
