The highly anticipated sequel for Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle will be here by the end of the year, but if you’ve been missing Dr. Bravestone and his crew, look no further. Dwayne Johnson shared an all-new photo of himself, Jack Black, Karen Gillan, and Kevin Hart in all of their avatar glory today on Instagram. He captioned the photo:
[row]Yes, you’re favorite band is back ~ lookin’ lean (ish) and mean.
Even though things may not be as they seem 🤔
So buckle up world because soon we’ll all play
When a brand NEW JUMANJI drops this Holiday!
Oh, the fun you’re gonna have.

Last month, Johnson gave fans a Valentine’s day treat when he posted the first image from the film, celebrating the start of production. It featured Spencer (Alex Wolff) holding the Jumanji video game that was presumably drestroyed by the detention teens at the end of the first film.

While the plot for the sequel is being kept well under wraps we do know that all of the original cast both teenage + adult, as well as Nick Jonas, will be reprising their roles. Danny DeVito and Crazy Rich Asians’ Awkwafina are also stepping into the game this time around. Jake Kasdan will be returning as director and will co-write the script with Scott Rosenberg and Jeff Pinkner.
2017’s Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle, updated the Robin Williams classic by having the plot take place inside the game rather than in the real world and it quickly became Sony’s second-biggest box officer earner with $943 million.
Having studied Media & Writing at James Madison University, I always knew that I wanted to do some type of creative writing, but being able to write about zombies, Starks, and superheroes on a daily basis for Fan Fest is my actual dream. While I probably shouldn’t be as proud as I am to be so similar to Nick Miller, I do hope to one day write my own “Pepperwood Chronicles’.
