Well it seems all the fuss of Jumanji being a remake was unwarranted as the Rock confirmed on his Instagram that it’s going to be a sequel.
This new movie will NOT be a remake or reboot of the original. It will be a CONTINUATION of the awesome JUMANJI adventure 20 years later.
As a producer on this movie and someone who loves the original, you have my word we’ll honor the legend of “Alan Parrish” and properly introduce a whole new generation to the fun and crazy JUMANJI universe that so many of us loved and grew up on.
Our director Jake Kasdan and lead producer Matt Tohlmach are focused and ready go. They also have no f*cking idea what they’ve gotten themselves into by hiring Me, Kevin Hart and Jack Black aka “The Cray Cray Triplets” as the stars of this movie.
That makes a whole lot more sense. After all, they do toss the game away in a river at the end of an original.
