Sony Pictures has released the first official trailer for the upcoming family adventure fantasy Jumanji.
Rather than a reboot, Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle continues the legend of Jumanji introduced in the 1995 original family film starring Robin Williams and Kirsten Dunst, only this time instead of board game, Jumanji is discovered in the form of an old video game by four high schoolers who are sucked into the jungles of Jumanji taking on the form of four, very different avatars. Inside the game, the teenagers will have to start thinking differently and utilize the unique skills of each of their characters to beat the game and return to the real world.
You can watch the first official trailer for Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle below.
The film stars Dwayne Johnson, Kevin Hart, Karen Gillan, Jack Black, Rhys Darby, Morgan Turner, Tom Matheson and Nick Jonas. Here’s the official synopsis:
In a brand new Jumanji adventure, the tables are turned as four teenagers are sucked into Jumanji’s world – pitted against rhinos, black mambas and an endless variety of jungle traps and puzzles. To survive, they’ll play as characters from the game: meek Spencer becomes a stupid and girl crazy jock (Dwayne Johnson); football jock Fridge becomes a tiny Einstein (Kevin Hart); It-girl Bethany becomes a bookworm professor (Jack Black); and unathletic Martha becomes an amazonian warrior (Karen Gillan). To beat the game and return to the Planet Earth with their lives, they’ll have to start seeing things in an entirely different way.
Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle hits theaters December 20, 2017.
