Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle is the Big Bang Theory of movies with its mass appeal and shallow cinematic depth, but the film is a box office beast raking in $771 million from a $90 million budget.

All this box office magic was done while competing against Star Wars: The Last Jedi, which is more than impressive.

According to a report in the Wall Street Journal, Thomas Rothman the Chairman of Sony Pictures Entertainment would like battle Disney and Star Wars Universe again in 2019. The studio is looking to release Jumangi 2 during the Christmas Holiday in 2019, Star Wars: Episode IX hits theaters on December 20, 2019.


Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle was directed by Jake Kasdan from a screenplay by Chris McKenna, Erik Sommers, Scott Rosenberg, and Jeff Pinkner. The film stars Dwayne Johnson, Kevin Hart, Jack Black, and Karen Gillan.
