With over a billion dollars generated worldwide, the reboot of ‘Jumanji’ proved a mega-success last year.
It’s little wonder then that studio bosses want in on more of the action and have officially commissioned another instalment of the action adventure.
The news was trumpeted by lead Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson.
Hollywood’s highest paid star took to social media to reveal that the sequel to his incarnation of the franchise Robin Williams popularised will hit theaters on December 13th 2019. Just in time for Christmas.
Per his post, right-hand man Kevin Hart will also be returning for more fun-filled theatrics:

Officially planting our JUMANJI flag. On DECEMBER 13th, 2019 – the game is not over. I hold JUMANJI very close to my heart and I’m beyond grateful you made our movie into the global juggernaut ($1BILLION+) it became. Can’t wait for you to see what our new adventure & new characters have in store as Christmas comes early. And once again, I get to slap @kevinhart4real’s lip’s into next week. The world is happy. #FearTheDrums #TheGameIsNotOver #JUMANJI DECEMBER 13th, 2019
Echoing earlier sentiments, money talks and ‘Jumanji: Welcome To The Jungle’ made a bucket-load of it. So, this was all sorts of expected.
The last film made for a solid watch, so here’s hoping the sequel delivers.
