When Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle showed up in 2017, I doubt anyone thought it would make just shy of a $1 billion at the box office. But it did and a sequel was inevitable. Admittedly though, the premise for the sequel Jumanji: The Next Level is at least trying to be clever. Leaning in further to the video game conventions the last film gained success with, this time mixing in glitches and players taking on different characters than they are used to having, the first trailer reveals a possibly humorous story to come. Check out the first official trailer for the film below:
Jumanji: The Next Level stars Dwayne Johnson, Kevin Hart, Jack Black, Karen Gillan, Nick Jonas, Ser’Darius Blain, Madison Iseman, Morgan Turner, Alex Wolff, Awkwafina, Danny Glover, and Danny DeVito. It is once again directed by Jake Kasdan (Who co-wrote the script with Jeff Pinkner and Scott Rosenberg). It is set to hit theaters December 13th.
