The Rock has officially landed on Canadian soil, and we are so here for it. Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson was spotted in Calgary for the "Jumanji" sequel. The actor has a special connection with the city – he was signed by the Calgary Stampeders for the CFL over 20 years ago. He will now be staying in Calgary for the next little while as he shoots his new Hollywood movie and we can't wait to see where he hangs out.
The Rock shared a photo of him landing in Calgary earlier this morning on his Instagram to his 138 million followers. In the photo, the actor is standing outside a plane. He gave a sentimental shoutout to the Alberta city in his post.
"Landed last night here in Calgary, Alberta Canada to continue shooting JUMANJI. My brain was flooded with crazy experiences here," he wrote in his Instagram post.
"This is the city where me having only $7 bucks in my pocket all began. I have a deep reverence for this town ~ she shook me in the best possible way. Good to be back. Let’s get to work."
Fans are loving his post, which has already gotten over 1.5 million likes since the picture was uploaded. Many are welcoming him back to Canada and it's clear that Canadians are super excited that The Rock will be in their home for the next while.
