Jungle Cruise tells the story of steamboat captain Frank Wolff (Dwayne Johnson), who becomes the reluctant river guide to Dr. Lily Houghton (Emily Blunt) and her younger brother McGregor (Jack Whitehall) on their quest to find the legendary “Tree of Life.” Houghton’s ultimate hope is to harness the healing powers of the Tree to usher in a medical revolution that will benefit all of mankind.

But the trio is not alone on the Amazon: Also searching for the Tree is Aguirre (Edgar Ramirez), a cunning mercenary who has been hired to guide a rival expedition, and Prince Joachim (Jesse Plemons), who is leading an Imperial German military expedition to find the Tree and claim it as his own. And even greater dangers, both natural and supernatural, await the adventurers as well.

If you want to watch Jungle Cruise (and you’re not planning to head out to theaters soon), then you can sign up for Disney+ and grab the movie with Disney Premier Access. Disney+ costs $8 per month or $80 per year, and you can order Jungle Cruise on Disney Premier Access for $30. This lets you stream the film as many times as you like until it is added to the Disney+ library on November 12.

Your Disney+ subscription also gets you access to the entire library of Disney, Pixar, Marvel, and Star Wars productions, among other content. If you want a bigger streaming package, then you should also definitely consider upgrading to the Disney Bundle. For $14 per month, you get Disney+, ESPN+, and basic ad-supported Hulu.

This content was produced in partnership with ESPN+.
The UFC took a hiatus last weekend after hosting two big pay-per-view events in March, but the world's leading MMA league is back in action for April with UFC 287: Pereira vs. Adesanya 2 getting the month off to a great start. As a numbered event, you can be sure to see the best talent and the most high-stakes matchups on Saturday's fight card, so you've got plenty of reasons to watch UFC 287. If you still need some convincing, though, then read on to see the top three reasons to grab your PPV ticket so you can tune in to UFC 287 this weekend.
Pereira vs. Adesanya 2 (But Really 4)

It goes without saying that the headlining fight between Alex "Poatan" Pereira and Israel "The Last Stylebender" Adesanya is the big draw of this event. UFC 287 is billed as Pereira vs. Adesanya 2, and the main event is a rematch for the UFC Middleweight Championship. The pair met last November at UFC 281, where Pereira unseated the champion Adesanya via fifth-round knockout to claim the title. This marked The Last Stylebender's first defeat at middleweight and only his second UFC loss overall -- one that must have stung doubly since Adesanya lost the belt that he had successfully defended five times before.
