In a brand new Jumanji adventure, four high school kids discover an old video game console and are drawn into the game’s jungle setting, literally becoming the adult avatars they chose.
What they discover is that you don’t just play Jumanji – you must survive it.
The new Jumanji movie, titled Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle, is modernizing the concepts from the original movie. Rather than an enchanted board game, the film’s child protagonists will use a dusty old (magical) Jumanji video game to start the film’s action.
To beat the game and return to the real world, they’ll have to go on the most dangerous adventure of their lives, discover what Alan Parrish left 20 years ago, and change the way they think about themselves – or they’ll be stuck in the game forever.
Dwayne “the Rock” Johnson shared an exclusive first look at the highly anticipated “Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle” movie on Good Morning America.
Johnson, 45, stars alongside Kevin Hart, Jack Black and Karen Gillan in the film, which he said is not a remake of the classic 1995 Robin Williams movie.
“This is a very exciting morning because what you guys are getting ready to see is a sneak peak of our new movie, ‘Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle,’” he said.
“We didn’t want to make a remake. We wanted to honor the original [and] make a movie that the world would enjoy by continuing the legacy, continuing the journey.”
