Jumanji: The Next Level – Megan Williams’ Trailer Talk
Arguably the biggest surprise film of 2017 was ‘Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle’, a sequel to the 1995 film ‘Jumanji’, about a board game that brings the reality of its strange jungle environment to life. In the 2017 film, the game was modernised to a video game, starring Dwayne Johnson, Karen Gillan, Kevin Hart and Jack Black as characters within the game.
In ‘Jumanji: The Next Level’, the lead actors are now embodying two of the main characters grandfathers (Danny DeVito, Danny Glover), and they’re given a new area to explore within the game.
What I especially loved about the 2017 film was the comedy that was brought up via various video game tropes, and I hope this is explored more in the sequel. The chemistry between the lead actors was also fantastic, but I do fear that this will be a similar scenario, just with different actors; the plot needs to move in a different direction than its predecessor.
Saying that, after the surprise that was ‘Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle’ two years ago, I am looking forward to seeing this.
‘Jumanji: The Next Level’ is in cinemas 13th December 2019.
Jumanji: The Next Level is an upcoming American fantasy adventure comedy film directed by Jake Kasdan and written by Kasdan, Jeff Pinkner and Scott Rosenberg. It is a sequel to the 2017 film Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle and the fourth installment of the Jumanji franchise. The film stars Dwayne Johnson, Kevin Hart, Jack Black, Karen Gillan, Nick Jonas, Ser’Darius Blain, Madison Iseman, Morgan Turner, and Alex Wolff, reprising their roles from the previous film, alongside newcomers Awkwafina, Danny Glover, and Danny DeVito.
