New Jumanji Welcome to the Jungle Trailer Takes You Deeper Into the Game

Where the first trailer forJumanji: Welcome to the Jungle was all about setting up the basics of the film and establishing some chemistry between the characters, today’s brand new trailer for the film goes a little bit deeper into the story and highlights the other characters the heroes will encounter: 

Yes there are plenty of goofy things in this trailer, but honestly, it looks like a lot of fun to me.  I’m not expecting Oscar greatness out of it, but there looks to be some genuine humor and action scenes to enjoy.  At the very least, I love the idea of how the game itself is changing things to continue sucking in players.  There’s some neat story ideas within the trailer that I really hope gets explored. 

In the brand new adventure Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle, the tables are turned as four teenagers in detention are sucked into the world of Jumanji. When they discover an old video game console with a game they’ve never heard of, they are immediately thrust into the game’s jungle setting, into the bodies of their avatars, played by Dwayne Johnson, Jack Black, Kevin Hart, and Karen Gillan. What they discover is that you don’t just play Jumanji – Jumanji plays you. They’ll have to go on the most dangerous adventure of their lives, or they’ll be stuck in the game forever…

Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle hits theaters on December 20, 2017.
