In the jungle you must wait, until the dice read 5 or 8…
Can you believe that Jumanji, the quintessential ’90s movie, is already 20 years old? In fact, it’s turning 21 one soon, though it may feel like only yesterday we first saw monsoons and stampedes rise out of a board game into suburban Rhode Island.
After two decades, it’s no surprise that Hollywood is already working on a new Jumanji movie, which was first announced in 2012. This new film has been described as a reimagined Jumanji “for the present,” and it will star Dwayne Johnson, Kevin Hart, Jack Black, and Nick Jonas.
Whether you think it’s too soon or that a new movie is fine and dandy, don’t you just miss the original? With such a star-studded cast and unforgettable scenes (Peter turning into a monkey still scars me), do you ever stop and wonder where they all are now?
