With any reboot there is usually some mixed emotions…and it is no different when it comes to the reboot of Jumanji
During CinemaCon some more details were released about the upcoming revival. First the title: Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle
Instead of it being a board game —it is a retro style VIDEO game (of the same name)
The story follows teens who were sentenced to detention, where they were told to clean the school basement which is where they find the game.
The students choose their characters for the game and then get sucked in. Humour ensues when the characters chosen are the opposite of their real life selves. For example the “it girl” transforms into Jack Black – and is not happy. The “nerdy” kid is transformed into the Rock and likes the fact he is super strong.
One fan posted shared details in his video blog
The cast includes: Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, Jack Black, Kevin Hart, Karen Gillan and Nick Jonas.
Who knows what will happen but I think with a decent plot like this and a list of well known names, it is bound to be a great movie (but of course weary)
The movie will be released this December.
