Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle made $961.7 million at the box office and got a 76% on Rotten Tomatoes. So a sequel was going to happen and was confirmed recently, currently titled Jumanji 2 on IMDB even though technically it’s the third film in the series if you include the original 1995 film. In any case, Dwayne Johnson confirmed the release date of the sequel today on his Instagram account:

Officially planting our JUMANJI flag. On DECEMBER 13th, 2019 – the game is not over. I hold JUMANJI very close to my heart and I’m beyond grateful you made our movie into the global juggernaut ($1BILLION+) it became. Can’t wait for you to see what our new adventure & new characters have in store as Christmas comes early. And once again, I get to slap @kevinhart4real’s lip’s into next week. The world is happy. #FearTheDrums #TheGameIsNotOver #JUMANJI DECEMBER 13th, 2019
Jake Kasdan is expected to once again direct after having directed the 2017 film.
