Sony’s reimagining of Jumanji, entitled Jumanji: Welcome To The Jungle, just got a new promotional image to tease the title and release window for the film.
License Global revealed an image of the Jumanji reboot’s title and promotional content to go with it in their latest issue.
Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle will not be a remake of the Robin Williams classic (as some had feared), but instead, it will retain the premise of a group of kids being trapped in a game that they have to win to escape. That being said, things are much different this time around, as the story involves a haunted video game and not a magic board game. The movie centers around four teenagers stuck in detention who get sucked into a retro video game, transforming into the avatars of their player characters. It has been confirmed that the film will pay tribute to the late Williams in some way, although it’s not clear if the movie is set in the same continuity as the 1990s family film.
Jumanji: Welcome To The Jungle will start its fun and games on December 20, 2017. The film’s cast includes Dwayne Johnson, Kevin Hart, Jack Black, Karen Gillan, and Nick Jonas.
