We’re heading back into the game with Jumanji: The Next Level, which sees a new set of players inhabit the characters we came to know in the last film – Dwayne Johnson channelling Danny DeVito is certainly an experience.
Sony Pictures’ official logline for the film reads: “In Jumanji: The Next Level, the gang is back but the game has changed. As they return to Jumanji to rescue one of their own, they discover that nothing is as they expect. The players will have to brave parts unknown and unexplored, from the arid deserts to the snowy mountains, in order to escape the world’s most dangerous game.”
The large, role-switching ensemble cast includes Johnson, DeVito, Jack Black, Kevin Hart, Karen Gillan, Nick Jonas, Awkwafina, Alex Wolff, Ser’Darius Blain, Madison Iseman, Morgan Turner, and Danny Glover.
Jake Kasdan directs the film from a script he wrote with Jeff Pinkner and Scott Rosenberg, based on the book Jumanji by Chris Van Allsburg.
Jumanji: The Next Level is set for release on December 13th.
