In the film, Prince Joachim is on a quest to find the Tree of Life, a legendary entity believed to possess the power to heal any ailment, with the ambition of using its healing powers to help Germany gain an advantage in the global political landscape of the time, which is set against the backdrop of the early 20th century, amidst the tensions leading up to World War I.

Prince Joachim is characterized by his cunning, ambition, and a certain level of arrogance, displaying a relentless determination to achieve his goals, even at the expense of others. His ruthless pursuit puts him at odds with the film’s protagonists, Lily Houghton and Frank Wolff, who are also in search of the Tree of Life but for more altruistic reasons.

His interactions with the protagonists add a level of danger and urgency to their quest, as they must navigate the challenges posed by both the natural elements of the Amazon jungle and the human adversaries led by Prince Joachim. His character also brings a historical and political dimension to the narrative, embodying the imperialistic and militaristic ambitions prevalent during that era.

Prince Joachim’s character serves as a stark contrast to the more light-hearted and altruistic motives of the protagonists, adding a layer of complexity and heightened stakes to their adventurous journey in “Jungle Cruise.” Through Prince Joachim, the film explores themes of power, ambition, and the potential consequences of unchecked desire for dominance on both a personal and global scale.
