    While we received a sneak peak at the film back in August when BuzzFeed attended the D23 Expo, this trailer is the first new footage the rest of the world is seeing, so you know what that means β€” time to break it down:

    The story follows Frank (Dwayne "Can You Smell What The Rock Is Cooking" Johnson), a down-on-his-luck tour boat operator who is recruited by Lily (Emily "I'm Mary Poppins, Y'all" Blunt), a scientist on a not-so-routine expedition.

    Lily is searching for a one-of-a-kind tree in the Amazon rainforest that is rumored to possess "unparalleled healing powers."

    However, getting there won't be easy, given that a dark and mysterious mythical force surrounds the tree. This includes a gentleman who is covered in snakes?! What?!

    And FRANKly* if Mr. The Rock doesn't say this after seeing this gentleman, I'm going to be highly-disappointed (not really, but it'd be cool if he did, ya know?):

    *LOL, get it? Because his character's name is Frank? Y'all, should I try stand-up?

    The trailer also includes plenty of references to the fan-favorite, titular Disney World/Land ride β€” including a nice little nod to the eighth wonder of the world:

    Overall, it's giving me big The Mummy, Pirates of the Caribbean, two-opposite-personality-people-go-on-a-whirlwind-adventure-to-break-a-curse-and-discover-that-maybe-they're-not-so-different-after-all vibes, which also just so happens to be my favorite very specific genre of movie!
