The first trailer has officially been released for the new Jumanji movie, Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle, which will be in theaters this December. As someone who was critical about a remake of the classic 1995 film, after watching the trailer my opinion has changed. The cast has continually stated that this film is not a remake, but more of an homage to the original story and taking its own spin on it. One major difference, you can tell straight from the trailer, is that the characters go into the game rather than the game coming into our world. In a very Breakfast Club manner, four teenagers are forced to clean out the school’s basement during detention and find a video game called Jumanji. The film is bringing the dreaded board game into the 21st century in the form of a video game (which still looks very early 90s). In the short 2 minute trailer you can already notice a lot of comedy from an all star cast, along with a lot of action. I can’t wait to find out more about the film in the coming months.
