The ‘Jumanji’ franchise is likely to come back with its sequel to the 2019 film ‘Jumanji: The Next Level’ and fans are quite excited by the news. However, no title has been set yet as the cast and crew have not started filming the next installment. But it can be firmly said that talks about the sequel are on!
The franchise’s first film hit theatres way back in 1995 which had late legendary actor Robin Williams play the lead. However, the makers did not have a clue that the film would turn into a hit franchise in the future. So, let us take a look at the basic plotline that made the film so appealing and minted money at the BO!
The film revolves around various people coming across a game called ‘Jumanji’ that traps its players into its gaming world. The only way to get out of this game is to strictly follow the rules of the game and only then can you have a chance at entering the real world.
Moreover, the 2019 installment of the franchise was among the top-grossing films of that year thanks to the actors’ performances, action sequences, and the advanced technology used to create a gaming world that looks realistic.
While Jake Kasdan will direct the movie again, most of the cast members will make a comeback, thus reprising their roles as ‘Jumanji’ players. Let us look at the list of actors and the characters they will essay:
Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson – Dr. Smolder Bravestone
Kevin Hart – Franklin Finbar
Jack Black – Prof. Shelly Oberon
Karen Gillan – Ruby Roundhouse
Danny DeVito – Eddie
Awkwafina – Ming Fleetfoot
Rory McCann – Jurgan the Brutal
Alex Wolff – Spencer
Colin Hanks – Alex Vreeke
Nick Jonas – Alex Seaplane
With the Coronavirus pandemic looming large on everyone, the film has not yet gone into production and will take time. Hence, no teasers will be out till the production is complete.
The pandemic has caused many filmmakers to postpone their schedules and this film is no different. The makers have not announced the official date yet.
Here’s wishing the team all the luck for their upcoming venture and we hope that the movie rakes in the moolahs at the box office yet again!
