Johnson celebrated the upcoming event on Instagram this week, sharing video footage and a photo of the "gigantic screen" going up for the premiere.

"Our goal is to treat fans with the biggest red carpet EVENT OF THE YEAR thats EPIC, SPECTACULAR & FUN!!!" he added.

The actor ended his note with a shout-out to his tequila brand, writing, "Get those @teremana toasts ready 🥃 because it's time to come together and CELEBRATE (safely:) the ADVENTURE OF A LIFETIME!"

In Jungle Cruise, Blunt plays Lily Houghton, a researcher aiming to find Lagrimas de Cristal who hires Johnson's character, Frank, a river guide tasked with guiding her to it.

The pair embark on a great adventure, traversing the jungle in search of the tree. Along the way, they encounter various dangers and obstacles — hissing snakes, leopards on the attack and a human-manned submarine that seems intent on getting in their way.

In May, Johnson announced that the movie — which was delayed a year due to the COVID-19 health crisis — will debut both in theaters and on Disney+ this month.

He shared the news in an Instagram video, revealing that the film will premiere on Disney+ with Premier Access.

"Join my ace Emily Blunt (the female Indiana Jones) and myself on THE ADVENTURE OF A LIFETIME as our DISNEY's JUNGLE CRUISE hits theaters and your living rooms ON THE SAME DAY — JULY 30th," Johnson wrote alongside the announcement clip.

Also starring Jack Whitehall, Jesse Plemons, Paul Giamatti and Veronica Falcón, Jungle Cruise is in theaters and available to stream via Disney+ Premier Access on July 30.
