Riddley’s Instagram post also included new concept art featuring monkeys catching butterflies. Other altered scenes include skippers escaping an angry rhino and monkeys taking over a boat.

We’d expect the Jungle Cruise to be fully updated ahead of Walt Disney World’s 50th anniversary on October 1, 2021.
