Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson can do no wrong.

The WWE Hall of Famer is a legitimate Hollywood superstar that now anchors several huge movie franchises.

The latest of which is Jungle Cruise, a movie based on the popular Disneyworld tourist attraction.

One thing that the House of Mouse has not had in several years is a popular series of movies based on its tourist attractions.

After the Johnny Depp-led Pirates of the Caribbean series ran its course, Disney has been in dire need of something to supplant it.

Now, Disney has found a worthy successor in Jungle Cruise, which is based on one of its oldest and unchanged tourist attractions.

Jungle Cruise became one of the most successful films of a pandemic-stricken box office.

In late August, the sequel became official.

To celebrate this, Johnson went on Instagram to thank all of his fans. 

Johnson's enthusiasm about the Jungle Cruise sequel is understandable.

It's not just that Jungle Cruise got greenlighted for a sequel.

It's also that this marks his first true film franchise.

As for Johnson's co-star, Blunt has even more reason to be happy.

Blunt currently stars in two of the biggest movies of 2021.

A Quiet Place II has made more than $160 million in the domestic box office, with a sequel expected to release sometime in 2023.
