The Jungle Cruise franchise will officially continue, as a sequel is now at the works with Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson & Emily Blunt set to return. THR reports that Disney has committed to producing a sequel to the adventure film with both stars set to return as Frank and Lily, as well as co-writer Michael Green and director Jaume Collet-Serra.

The film released in July in a day-and-date strategy in theaters and on Disney+ through Premier Access for $29.99. The film has made $100.1 million domestically and $187 million worldwide so far in theaters, plus $60 million in its first weekend on Disney+. Successive week Disney+ numbers have yet to be revealed.

The film was described as follows:

Dr. Lily Houghton travels from London, England to the Amazon jungle and enlists Frank Wolff’s questionable services to guide her downriver on La Quila—his ramshackle-but-charming boat. Lily is determined to uncover an ancient tree with unparalleled healing abilities—possessing the power to change the future of medicine. Thrust on this epic quest together, the unlikely duo encounters innumerable dangers and supernatural forces, all lurking in the deceptive beauty of the lush rainforest. But as the secrets of the lost tree unfold, the stakes reach even higher for Lily and Frank and their fate—and mankind’s—hangs in the balance.
