If you were worried that the new Jumanji film was just going to be a basic remake of Joe Johnston’s 1995 original, the first photo that Dwayne Johnson has released from the set should put you at ease. The new film will actually be a sequel to the original, even though it has the same name.
To celebrate the start of filming, Dwayne Johnson took to Instagram, where he posted this picture of himself, along with Karen Gillan (Doctor Who/ Guardians of the Galaxy), Jack Black (Orange County/ Tenacious D, School of Rock), and Kevin Hart (Central Intelligence) in full jungle gear.
While the pic is pretty cool on the surface, expect to hear at least one person you know complaining about the sexist nature of Gillan’s shirt, compared to the full attire of the rest of her cast.
From Johnson’s Instagram:
EXCLUSIVE FIRST LOOK: #JUMANJI The journey continues.. “Moose Finbar” (Kevin Hart). “Ruby Roundhouse” (Karen Gillan. Her jungle wardrobe will make sense when you know the plot. Trust me;). “Professor Shelly Oberon” (Jack Black). “Dr. Smolder Bravestone” ’cause well.. he smolders. Hard workin’ and FUN first day of shooting in the jungle with this talented and crazy motley crew. Jack is brilliant, Karen is bad assery, Kevin is sharply hilarious and I smell good. Extremely hard trying to keep a straight face in these scenes. Too funny. We’re makin’ a good one. More to come.. #JUMANJI #WishFulfillment #TheGameThatPlaysYou
Jumanji opens in theaters on July 28, 2017.
