While cleaning out a school’s basement while serving detention, four teenagers find a vintage video game version of Jumanji and get sucked into its jungle setting. The only way out of this game is to play along and finish it to go back to their world. They are avatars or inside the bodies of the characters inside the video game.
Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle (also known as Jumanji 2) is an upcoming 3D action adventure film and a stand-alone sequel to the 1995 film Jumanji, directed by Jake Kasdan and written by Chris McKenna, Erik Sommers, Scott Rosenberg and Jeff Pinkner. The film stars Dwayne Johnson, Kevin Hart, Jack Black, Karen Gillan, Nick Jonas and Bobby Cannavale. In August 2015, Sony set the film for a December 25, 2016 release. It has since been rescheduled for December 20, 2017.
