The first trailer for the action adventure Jumanji welcomes the players of a video game in the jungle. After the film classic with Robin Williams from the year 1995, Dwayne Johnson, Jack Black, Kevin Hart and Karen Gillan have to face the different tasks of the modern game with funny dialogues and plenty of slapstick inserts. In contrast to the first part, the Jumanji is not a board game, but a computer game in the center. A group of high school students will one day find a game called Jumanji, which they have never heard of.
Curiously they begin to play and when they choose their game character, they are suddenly drawn into the video game and take their shape. When the game begins, the four teenagers actually land in the world of Jumanji and find that they are stuck in this. In the body of their avatars, they now have to reach the goal of the game, otherwise they can never return to their reality.
The roles of the four adventurers take over in Jumanji: Kevin Hart as Moose Finbar, Karen Gillan as Ruby Roundhouse, Jack Black as Professor Shelly Oberon and Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson as Dr. Smolder Bravestone.
The script is written by the authors Scott Rosenberg, Zachhelm, Chris McKenna (producer of the community) and Jeff Pinkner (producer of Zoo). As a director, Jake Kasdan is active, who has also filmed such films as Sex Tape or Bad Teacher. At Jumanji 2 Kasdan takes over the director of Joe Johnson. The director directed the first part 22 years ago.
