Disney revealed footage for the Jungle Cruise movie at D23 Expo 2019, with Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson and Emily Blunt in the lead roles for the Adventureland-themed movie.The footage on display definitely tips a hat to the Disney ride the story is based off of, with the cruise itself having guides like the attraction. The antagonists appear to be similar to those in the Pirates of the Caribbean films, having a kind of supernatural Davy Jones-like appearance.The movie is based on the Disneyland ride of the same name, and will see The Rock play a boat skipper named Frank who takes Blunt's character Lily and her brother McGregor -- played by British stand-up comedian Jack Whitehall -- on a mission to find a tree that has magical healing powers.

While I'm a skeptic of diet fads, I take note when something works. Last year, my acid reflux flared up so badly I lost my voice and developed a nodule on my vocal cords. My doctor put me on a regimen of two different antacids twice a day, lots of rest (as if that is actually possible) and mentioned that I should avoid acid triggers and overeating.
