JUMANJI: WELCOME TO THE JUNGLE Sequel Officially Underway

Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson has confirmed via Instagram that the sequel to box office smash ‘Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle‘ is underway.


It’s nice to see that all three original writers are back on board, meaning that the sequel will probably keep the flavor and heart of the first movie.

When initially announced in 2016, the prospect of a spin-off of Jumanji (1995) left a lot of viewers concerned. However, upon release, the quirky all-star movie quickly won over audiences and became the fifth-highest-grossing film of 2017 and 40th-highest-grossing film of all time.

Now that the sequel has been officially announced – with a set date of December 2019 – fans are wondering how the high school crew will end up back in the game. In previous interviews, the cast members have shared their ideas for possible sequels.

Jack Black: If you don’t mind me jumping in. I think it would be cool to see the mind behind the game. It’d be cool to like explore – because there’s gotta be like some alien technology –

Dwayne Johnson: Like Oz.

JB: Exactly. Who’s behind the curtain on this game.

Meanwhile, Nick Jonas wants his character to be played by…Christopher Walken? Well, alright. If any franchise could get away with it, it’s the one that cast Jack Black as a popular teenage girl and made it work unironically.

Since the sequel is still unnamed, it’s hard to guess at what it might hold. It’s relevant to note that while Jack Black, Karen Gillan, Dwayne Johnson and Kevin Hart are all slated to return, Nick Jonas (sadly) has not yet been confirmed. However, if it’s going to enter a pitched battle with the new Star Wars movie in theatres, it’ll have to be good.
