First look at Dwayne Johnson, Kevin Hart, Jack Black & Karen Gillan in Jumanji



Jake Kasdan is directing the new Jumanji film, which is supposedly sort of sequel / reboot kind of deal. It stars Dwayne Johnson, Kevin Hart, Jack Black and Karen Gillan. It seems that events may be taking place within the game itself for this new one and they may all be playing characters within the game, which would explain the clothes they are wearing.

Here is what Dwayne Johnson had to say about the image:

The journey continues.. “Moose Finbar” (Kevin Hart). “Ruby Roundhouse” (Karen Gillan. Her jungle wardrobe will make sense when you know the plot. Trust me;). “Professor Shelly Oberon” (Jack Black). “Dr. Smolder Bravestone” ’cause well.. he smolders. Hard workin’ and FUN first day of shooting in the jungle with this talented and crazy motley crew. Jack is brilliant, Karen is bad assery, Kevin is sharply hilarious and I smell good. Extremely hard trying to keep a straight face in these scenes. Too funny. We’re makin’ a good one. More to come..

Jumanji is based on Chris Van Allsburg’s 1985 children’s book in which a magical board game causes jungle plants and creatures to invade a quiet American suburb. The 1995 original film was directed by Joe Johnston and starred the late Robin Williams, Bonnie Hunt, Kirsten Dunst, Bradley Pierce, Jonathan Hyde, Bebe Neuwirth, David Alan Grier and Patricia Clarkson.

Jumanji is due out in July 2017.


UPDATE: Dwayne Johnson as share news of the kids in the film. Definitely looks like the kids are the main characters and the adults are the in game avatars. Looks like at least one of the kids will have an avatar of the opposite sex. Maybe three if the images of the kids line up with the adult actors.
