"Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle" sequel — Everything we know so far

Jumanji Sequel First Look

From its release date, cast news and plot details, here's everything you need to know about the third film in the Jumanji series

After raking in a hugely impressive box office total of nearly $1 billion, Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle was always destined to get a sequel; it was only a matter of time.

Well, that time has now come as Karen Gillan has shared an image of herself and the main cast in the upcoming sequel to the Jumanji reboot, including Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson, Kevin Hart and Jack Black.

That's all well and good, but what story can they tell with this third instalment in the Jumanji series? After all, the Jumanji game was apparently destroyed at the end of Welcome to the Jungle, seemingly ending the possibility of a sequel right there.

However, as 2017's Welcome to the Jungle made an absolute killing at the box office, a follow-up was always on the cards.

As things stand, Sony and co. are keeping themselves tight-lipped on what the next Jumanji film could have in store but expect more video game-themed jungle escapades.

As well as Kasdan, it appears that most of the cast from 2017's Welcome to the Jungle will be returning for this year's sequel, but will also be adding Danny DaVito, Awkwafina, Dania Ramirez and Danny Glover.
