While some still aren’t sure whether Jumanji needs a reboot, it’s getting one and it’s now is production. Kevin Hart has posted the first image from the movie, which features the comedian alongside co-stars Dwayne Johnson, Jack Black & Karen Gillan.
It’s not known exactly how this reboot will handle the story, but it will still be based around the basic concept of a board game where what happens in the game also happens in real life, which causes havoc when the jungle starts to erupt into reality. Those involved have been keen to say that the movie will be respectful to the Robin Williams film, and that it is likely to take place in the same universe, rather than being a complete restart.
The new picture suggests the film may spend much of its time in the Jumanji jungle world, with the characters getting stuck inside the game and needing to get out. It’ll be in cinemas next year.
