Two decades after the happenings of the original JUMANJI movie, the enchanted board game has now evolved into a dangerously immersive video game. Four high schoolers serving detention discover it on an old game console while cleaning out the school basement. After plugging it in and deciding on their characters, they find themselves literally sucked into its jungle setting and transformed into their adult avatars (who happen to look exactly like the film’s four headline stars: Dwayne Johnson, Jack Black, Kevin Hart and Karen Gillan). To escape the game, they’ll have to beat it and find out what Alan Parrish (the late Robin Williams) discovered so many years before – otherwise, they’ll be stuck inside Jumanji forever. Director and co-writer Jake Kasdan (son of filmmaker Lawrence Kasdan and director of ORANGE COUNTY, BAD TEACHER) helms JUMANJI: WELCOME TO THE JUNGLE, the follow-up to Robin Williams’ uber popular ‘90s family adventure. Rumor has it that Williams’ character Alan Parrish will make an appearance in the film via archive footage. Confirmed on the bill are co-stars Nick Jonas, Bobby Cannavale, Missi Pyle and original ANIMAL HOUSE star Tim Matheson as Old Man Vreeke.
