2016 has seen some varied success for its batch of remakes and reboots: Disney’s The
Next year sees the return of family favourite Jumanji with Dwayne Johnson headlining. Some haven’t taken too kindly to the news, Johnson took to his Instagram this weekend to assure his fans that the new version will be very much a continuation of the story, rather than a remake saying:
And now in two weeks I’ll reunite with ol’ friends Kevin Hart & Jack Black and we have the honor to introduce a whole new generation to the amazing world of #JUMANJI. *(for the record we are NOT making a reboot, but rather a continuation of the awesome JUMANJI story). It’s also crazy to me how much me, Kev and Jack look like triplets when we’re together.
Jake Kasdan (Bad Teacher) helms the film with Kevin Hart (Central Intelligence), Nick Jonas (Goat) and Jack Black (Goosebumps) along for the ride which begins on July 28th 2017.
