Is Jungle Cruise out in cinemas?

Yes – Disney has given the film a theatrical release.

In the UK, you can order your tickets from the likes of Vue, Odeon, Cineworld and Showcase. In the US, you can get them from AMC, Atom Tickets and Fandango.

However, if you’d prefer to watch Jungle Cruise from the comfort of your own home, then that’s also possible.

Can I watch Jungle Cruise on Disney Plus?

Jungle Cruise is another film that's launched through Disney Plus Premier Access. This is a one-off payment on top of an existing Disney+ subscription to give viewers a way to watch films that under normal circumstances would only be available in theatres.

Watching Jungle Cruise via this method costs £19.99 in the UK, and $29.99 in the US.

If you're not already subscribed to Disney+, you can do so on the website. An account costs £7.99/$7.99 per month, or £79.90/$79.99 per year at the time of writing.

Here's what you need to do to watch Jungle Cruise at home:

  • Sign into your Disney+ account and head to the homepage

Will Jungle Cruise release on VOD services and DVD?

After the film has finished its run in cinemas and on Disney Plus Premier Access, it will eventually come to VOD services and DVD – but there may be quite a wait.

It's worth noting that it will also join the standard Disney+ library - with no extra fee to watch it - from 12 November - so if you're a Disney+ subscriber already and don't mind waiting, then that will be the most cost-efficient way to watch.
