“She’s super talented. She’s a multi-threat and we became good friends,” Johnson said during his virtual interview.

‘I love her. I love her family… John (Krasinski), their children. We’re all one big ohana, as we like to say on the islands,” Johnson added.

Their movie Jungle Cruise is based on the iconic attraction at Disneyland, the first attraction Walt Disney himself invented, and Johnson called it “Walt Disney’s baby.”

He even left some history for fans, revealing that when Disneyland opened in 1955, Walt Disney himself was the first skipper on opening day.

Johnson revealed that he was “so excited” to take on this project, revealing that he “had one person in mind to be my co-star, and that was always Emily Blunt.”

He added that he “can’t wait for everyone to see her in this movie because she’s really the female version of — and that’s saying a lot — but she’s really the female version of Indiana Jones.”

“I’m very proud of her and how much she kicks a ** in this movie,” Johnson said in the interview.

The film follows Johnson’s character Frank Wolff, a wisecracking riverboat skipper who is hired by Blunt’s Lily and her brother MacGregor (Jack Whitehall) to lead them through the jungle.
