The upcoming sequel to Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle promises to get the gang back together.
Joe Johnston's 1995 family-film Jumanji is a classic in many households, and when news of a reboot emerged, expectations were certainly low. Against all odds, 2017's Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle was one of the year's biggest triumphs, offering modern audiences a thrilling, funny adventure.
The film boasts a stunning cast, with Dwayne Johnson, Kevin Hart, Jack Black, Karen Gillan and more achieving great chemistry. Director Jake Kasdan strived for fun and maintained exactly that; a sequel should see him do the same. Kasdan is back to helm the sequel, and the cast seem delighted to make a return.
As reported by Empire, the four leads are returning, as well as their teenage counterparts. There will also be some welcome additions to the mix, with Danny DeVito and Danny Glover also being welcomed to the jungle. Glover's a great performer, but DeVito is absolutely perfect when one considers the tone of the 2017 film. We can't wait to see him - and the others - in action on December 13, 2019.
