Karen Gillan joins Jumanji

Jumanji: a game for those who wish to find a way to leave their world behind.

It’s official, Doctor Who‘s own Karen Gillan is joining the cast of Jumanji. She will be playing Martha.

Gillan was the perfect choice as she had enough “‘chutzpah.’ Guts, nerve and talent to stand her ground and hold her own,” against the rest of the cast. At least that’s what Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson thinks as he took to Instagram to announce the newest cast member.

Read the sweet welcome message below!

Gillan joins The Rock, Kevin Hart, Jack Black and Nick Jonas in this continuation of Robin Williams’ 1995 Jumanji.

Jumanji will roll the dice July 28, 2017. No cheating!
