For those of you that didn’t know, a Jumanji sequel is happening, and it has the most insane cast ever!
Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson and Kevin Hart are teaming up once more after the legendary success of Central Intelligence. Joining that comedy duo are Jack Black (School of Rock), Nick Jonas (Kingdom), and Karen Gillan (Dr. Who, Guardians of the Galaxy).
Now, what exactly might a Jumaji sequel entail? Well, it’s definitely not a reboot, but rather has been described by Johnson as “a continuation of the awesome Jumanji story”.
So we’re expecting new characters having to complete the game!
On the subject of the characters, Johnson has just introduced who he’ll be playing: “The Smoldering Dr. Bravestone”.
He looks unfairly good in that Indiana Jones-esque get up.

“(not sure where my pecs went;)” Johnson’s instagram caption joked – it looks like they’ve had to edit out some muscles! Perhaps the character isn’t supposed to be quite as buff as The Rock!
“This is gonna be fun,” he continued, mentioning his cast mates before concluding with can’t wait to “play the game that plays you”#JUMANJI #DrBravestone #KingOfTheSmolder #TheAdventureContinues 💀”
Johnson’s had a busy year, with Central Intelligence smashing box offices, not to mention Baywatch filming, and the newest season of his show Ballers, all on top of Disney’s Moana and the latest Fast & Furious.
He managed to take time out though to welcome Gillan, the newest cast member, to the project via a very words instagram post.
“Ladies and gentlemen, I’m proud to announce a girl who’s playing the most important role in our movie – the talented, beautiful and down for a Scottish fight at any time, Ms @KarenGillanOfficial And yes, this is the girl who is so bad ass she shaved her freaking head for Guardians of the Galaxy,” he wrote.
Who else can’t wait to hear what characters the rest of this awesome cast will be playing?
