Jungle Cruise Deleted Scene Shows Eighth Wonder of the World [EXCLUSIVE]

Dwayne Johnson shows off the eighth wonder of the world, the backside of water, in Screen Rant's exclusive deleted scene from Disney's Jungle Cruise. The film stars Johnson as Frank Wolff, a skipper on a mission to find a mythical healing tree, the Tears of the Moon, alongside intrepid Dr. Lily Houghton (Emily Blunt) and her brother MacGregor (Jack Whitehall). Like Pirates of the Caribbean and The Haunted Mansion before it, the movie takes inspiration from the iconic Disney Parks attraction, with a few changes and updates.

Jungle Cruise will be available on digital platforms on August 31. The movie will be available Blu-ray, 4K Ultra, and DVD on November 16, around the same it will be available to stream for free on Disney+. The home release comes packed with special features, including an "Expedition Mode" with pop-up trivia and easter eggs, as well as behind-the-scenes featurettes, bloopers, and deleted scenes.

Screen Rant has an exclusive deleted scene from Jungle Cruise showing a classic joke from the ride. The scene takes place near the end of the film as Frank, Lily, and MacGregor face off against Prince Joachim (Jesse Plemons) and his crew. Frank has figured out where they need to go and steers his boat into a waterfall - much to the concern of the others. Once they make it through unscathed he utters the classic line, "The backside of water." Check it out below!

The final version of the film also uses the backside of water line, as seen in the first trailer for Jungle Cruise, however it comes much earlier as part of a stunt Frank uses on his boat tours. There is no indication if the line in the deleted scene is used as a callback or if it is being said for the first time. Either way, the scene further highlights Frank's ingenuity and Johnson's charsmia. He really sells the indignation in the second part of the line, "It's the eighth wonder of the world." It also adds to his connection with Lily, as the two share a sweet glance at the end.

Deleted scenes are a fun look inside the filmmaking process. They can show what was cut from a movie and what made it into the final version. This scene also shows how Jungle Cruise used CGI with massive blue screens standing in for the film's Amazon setting.
