Wow… That was better than I expected. I am not going to say much about the trailer, just take a minute and watch it for yourself. I will say, that it does actually feel like a fresh enough take on the story to justify a new film. I’m really interested in learning more about it as we get closer to the December release.

Jumanji stars Dwayne Johnson, Kevin Hart, Karen Gillan, Jack Black, Nick Jonas, Alex Wolff, Ser’Darius Blain, Madison Iseman, and Morgan Turner and opens in theaters on December 20, 2017.

In a brand new Jumanji adventure, four high school kids discover an old video game console and are drawn into the game’s jungle setting, literally becoming the adult avatars they chose. What they discover is that you don’t just play Jumanji – you must survive it. To beat the game and return to the real world, they’ll have to go on the most dangerous adventure of their lives, discover what Alan Parrish left 20 years ago, and change the way they think about themselves – or they’ll be stuck in the game forever.
