There’s been some monkey business on the set of Jumanji lately. It’s due to the new release date of the film
December 22, 2017
It was originally slotted to have a July release but Sony did some reorganizing on us and decided to swap it with Stephan King’s The Dark Tower.
Exhibitor Relations made the announcement via Twitter on the new release date
Hold those dice: Sony's JUMANJI reboot will be a Christmas release instead of a summer flick opting for 12/22/17 instead of 7/28/17.

Whether you’re a fan of the move or not, you’re going to have to hold onto your dice for just a little bit longer.
