LIKE THE FAMED THEME PARK ATTRACTION AND BRAND-NEW FEATURE FILM that this volume examines, The Making of Disney’s Jungle Cruise takes readers on a unique and fascinating journey. It’s an odyssey through the history and legacy of one of the most original ideas ever to come out of Walt Disney’s fertile mind, first planned for the opening of his revolutionary new theme park in 1955. This book travels from the debut of what was called the Jungle River Cruise on Disneyland’s opening day, through the arrival at long last of the thrilling feature film starring Dwayne Johnson and Emily Blunt and directed by Jaume Collet-Serra. On Disneyland’s opening day of July 17, 1955, the park’s first guests boarded authentically styled riverboats to take the first Jungle Cruises. This unique riverboat-themed attraction in Adventureland takes visitors on a short journey down expertly simulated versions of the most prominent tropical rivers of the world, including the Amazon and the Nile, to witness wild animals, exotic sights, and thrills only a handful of intrepid real-world explorers had experienced in the past. A hilarious (and “punny”) Jungle Cruise skipper narrates all the sights and action from beginning to end. This Jungle Cruise experience would ultimately be woven into three other Disney parks, where the ride was likewise an opening-day attraction—simulating comedic high-adventure cruises through rivers in the continents of South America, Africa, and Asia. Fast-forward decades and, at long last, production on the movie commenced. The project was influenced by director Jaume Collet-Serra’s love of The African Queen, Indiana Jones films, and Romancing the Stone, among others, and built on the foundation of key elements of the theme park attraction. From the re-creation of the Amazon River to the film’s hilarious take on famous skipper puns and the reams of Easter eggs for longtime fans, the Jungle Cruise movie captures the same excitement and joy as the theme park attraction, and The Making of Disney’s Jungle Cruise details it all. Interviews about the filmmaking process include all major cast members—Dwayne Johnson, Emily Blunt, Jack Whitehall, Paul Giamatti, and many others—along with key filmmakers who detail the art, design, cinematography, production design, costumes, hair, makeup, props, stunts, and numerous visual effects challenges involved with the production. This volume offers up an intimate story of the full journey of the Jungle Cruise concept, straight from Walt Disney’s brain in the 1950s to the big screen in 2021. So come aboard and enjoy the journey—you’re in for quite a ride! Michael Goldman

Si, au XIXe siècle, l’opéra français a continué à se définir en tant qu’expression artistique distincte des opéras italiens et allemands, au cours du XXe siècle l’internationalisation du répertoire et des créations conduit à une modification profonde de la notion d’école nationale. En revanche, perdure un lien important entre l’État, les collectivités territoriales et le genre, comme en témoigne l’inauguration en 1989 de l’Opéra Bastille, voulu par François Mitterrand, ou le label « opéra national », décerné par le ministère de la Culture à quelques théâtres en régions. Plus que jamais, la place de l’opéra dans la société est un défi, à la fois esthétique, culturel, économique, social et politique. Jusqu’à 1945, et malgré sa lente et inexorable désagrégation, le système mis en place précédemment maintient la vie lyrique dans une relative continuité avec le XIXe siècle. L’opéra du XXe siècle, que l’on élargira aux deux premières décennies du XXIe, est l’opéra de toutes les aventures et de toutes les crises, qui l’ont un temps conduit aux limites de ses possibles et menacé de disparition. Face aux révolutions de tout ordre – de la société des loisirs, de la démocratisation et de la décentralisation, du multiculturalisme et de la mondialisation, du langage musical occidental et de la mise en scène, des nouvelles technologies et des musiques populaires urbaines –, face aux avant-gardes, aux nouveaux médias et aux nouvelles formes d’art comme le cinéma, l’opéra a su se réinventer. Son aptitude à absorber sans se perdre les nouveaux outils et les nouvelles questions du monde contemporain est stupéfiante. À l’encontre des idées reçues, ce sont encore, de Debussy à Saariaho, des centaines d’œuvres que ce siècle de turbulences a produites. Tragiques ou légères, formules radicales ou partitions pour enfants, grandes fresques ou opéras-minutes, opérettes ou comédies musicales, elles n’ont cessé de reconfigurer le genre et d’élargir son spectre. Ce continent lyrique restait à explorer dans la diversité de ses aspects. Une histoire s’imposait donc pour en faire le récit et en décrire les mécanismes, pour en reconstituer les valeurs et les tendances, pour suivre ses acteurs et découvrir ses productions. Entreprise sans précédent par ses dimensions et par sa conception, cette Histoire de l’opéra français en trois volumes réunit une équipe internationale de plus de cent cinquante auteurs – musicologues, littéraires et philosophes, historiens et spécialistes du théâtre, de la danse et des arts. Elle est placée sous la direction d’Hervé Lacombe, professeur de musicologie à l’université Rennes 2
