The new trailer for Jumanji: The Next Level sees our favourite characters return, albeit with some significant changes with the help of Danny DeVito and Danny Glover. It’s great to see director Jake Kasdan shake things up with the sequel, adding in some new twists and turns with what is a pretty safe storyline to begin with.
The sequel to Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle takes place after the events of the film with Spencer, Martha, Bethany and Fridge finding themselves back in the game albeit with some notable changes.
Mainly we see Dwayne Johnson’s Dr. Bravestone character channelled by DeVito with Kevin Hart’s Mouse Finbar channelled by Glover. Fridge is also put into Jack Black’s Professor character, which should make for some interesting dynamics.
Other than that, the setting for the film seems to have changed with deserts and wild Ostriches as well as crazy baboons. Like, the first film, Jumanji: The Next Level will be filled with CGI-scenes with laughs brought upon by the actors themselves.
Jumanji: The Next Level also stars Karen Gillan, Nick Jonas, Awkwafina, Ser’Darius Blain, Alex Wolff, Madison Iseman, and Morgan Turnerplays in theatres in December 2019.
