As previously reported, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson new Disney+ series, Behind the Attraction, debuts on the service later this month. Walt Disney Studios released a new trailer for the show, which offers a look behind the scenes for Disney’s theme park rides. You can check out the official trailer below.

The first five episodes of the series will premiere on Wednesday, July 21 on Disney+. The show is executive produced by Dwayne Johnson, Dany Garcia, and Brian Volk-Weiss through their Seven Bucks Production Banner. Paget Brewster serves as narrator for this look behind the curtain for Disney’s most iconic theme park attractions. Here’s a rundown and synopsis for the first five episodes:

Jungle Cruise: Join a skipper for the story behind Jungle Cruise, and try to spot the backside of water! When Walt decided to create the original immersive attraction, he tasked Imagineers with building a river AND the mechanical animals to populate it.

Haunted Mansion: Welcome, foolish mortals, to the Haunted Mansion — enter if you dare! When Walt Disney developed the attraction, he didn’t specify if it should be funny or scary, and so it became a perfect blend of both.

Star Tours: Lightspeed to Endor! A long time ago…Disney created Star Tours, a thrilling simulator attraction that takes guests to a galaxy far, far away. It inspired Imagineers to build a whole new land — Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge.

The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror: Discover the ups (and downs!) of creating this gravity-defying attraction set in the eerie world of Rod Serling’s renowned “Twilight Zone” television series. Then hold on tight as Imagineers reimagine the Disney California Adventure Park version as Guardians of the Galaxy – Mission: BREAKOUT!

Space Mountain: You’re about to hear the story of Space Mountain in T-minus 5, 4, 3, 2, 1…launch! Walt’s vision of an attraction that simulates space travel was a design challenge Imagineer John Hench tackled head on, creating a signature structure in Disney Parks around the world.
