jumanji welcome to the jungle

Get ready to yell “Jumanji!” Dwayne Johnson, Kevin Hart, Karen Gillan, and Jack Black are featured the in the latest trailer for the upcoming film, ‘Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle.’

As revealed in the first preview, director Jake Kasdan’s continuation of the classic 1995 Robin Williams version puts a spin on the well-known titular board game. After being sent to detention, four high students discover an old video game and are transported into the world of Jumanji and into the bodies of their avatars, played by Johnson, Hart, Gillan, and Black.

Producer Matt Tolmach said in a recent interview:

“We always talk about [‘Welcome to the Jungle’] as another ‘Jumanji’ adventure. It is very much the spirit of ‘Jumanji,’ but with a different group of people and sort of a different idea. But the idea of the game that comes to life is the DNA there.”

‘Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle,’ also stars Nick Jonas and Bobby Cannavale, and stampedes into theaters on December 20.
