I saw Disney's new movie #JungleCruise yesterday. I'm a bit late to it and I'll explain why, but here's my review of the movie. Spoilers follow! (1/7)
I'm late to watching this movie because I originally planned to not see it at all. When I saw the trailer for it showing Dwayne Johnson in a jungle, I thought it seemed too much like Jumanji. I love those movies and I figured this would be a worse version of it. (2/7)
I was wrong -- sort of. While I still like the Jumanji movies more due to their much superior comedy, Jungle Cruise was not that bad. It had enough in it to make it unique in its own way, despite being set in a jungle and starring the Rock. (3/7)

The Jungle Cruise ride at #Disneyland developed a reputation for racist depictions of Indigenous people as tourist attractions, attackers or cannibals ‚ÄĒ tribal caricatures crafted through a colonialist lens.

The updated ride changes that.

The ride reopened Friday with updates that remove, in Disney‚Äôs words, ‚Äúnegative depictions of native people.‚ÄĚ

No other attraction that has stood as long has been under the sort of evolutions that directly speak to the park’s past, its present & future.

The long-overdue course correction for the #JungleCruise shifts the show to nature, the elements and the peril that awaits man when he tries to tame it ‚ÄĒ with puns aplenty.

Gone are racist scenes of a spear-waving war party.

Breaking: Disneyland to make #JungleCruise more inclusive, following years-long complaints of racism
latimes.com/entertainment-…
The #JungleCruise has been operating since 1955 ‚ÄĒ and it's one of the remaining attractions overseen by Walt Disney himself.

But the ride has long been criticized for racist depictions and viewing adventure through an imperial lens. @Toddmartens explains: latimes.com/entertainment-…
Disney expects the changes to be completed this year at both Disneyland and Florida’s Walt Disney World, where the ride is currently open.

The company adds that timelines could be affected by the pandemic, as Disneyland has been closed for nearly a year
