The movie stars Dwayne Johnson and Emily Blunt and they are both going to return to their lead roles. The movie instantly got rave reviews, getting an A- on Cinemascore and a 92% score on Rotten Tomatoes.

This movie has some historical significance to it, and we are all glad the story is continuing. The movie took 15 years to come to the screen and it is based on the popular ride of the same name at the park. The ride was one of the original rides in the park when it opened all the way back in 1955. Among movies that have been released during the pandemic, this is one of a few that has grossed the top amount, and families cannot wait to watch more.

A lot of Disney movies get sequels, prequels, and spin-offs, but this announcement seemingly comes quickly after the release of the first film. This could be due to the excitement and immediate love for the new film, or, perhaps Disney knew that it would be popular and had already been working on a sequel before they even released the first one. Regardless of the reasoning, this is one movie that is perfect for families, because there are elements in the film that are great for children and for their adults. Not many films can bring the whole family together where every single member enjoys the film, but this one does, and it seems to be here to stay.
