Sony Pictures has released the first trailer for the next Jumanji sequel that takes us back inside the game for a new adventure with more twists.
Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle was a surprise box office success, more surprising because it’s a damn good movie. I mean, it has no right to be as good as it is. As such, I’ve been looking forward to seeing what the third film, now titled The Next Level, will bring. This morning’s first trailer gives us a peek:
First off, I’m REALLY glad to see they didn’t stick the same characters into the same gaming avatars. Changing up the players gives everyone a chance to stretch their comedic skills while offering something different for audiences to see. Based off the gags already thrown in the trailer, I’m sold on the change. Couple all that with some bigger action sequences, plus more mystery and I’m definitely on board for this one.
In Jumanji: The Next Level, the gang is back but the game has changed. As they return to Jumanji to rescue one of their own, they discover that nothing is as they expect. The players will have to brave parts unknown and unexplored, from the arid deserts to the snowy mountains, in order to escape the world’s most dangerous game.
Jumanji: The Next Level hits theaters on December 13, 2019.
