Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle sequel and Angry Birds 2 have been dated for release by Sony. The Dwayne Johnson-starring comedy remake will drop now on Dec. 13, 2019. That puts Jumanji into the weekend after the highly anticipated family animated offering Frozen 2 and the weekend before another big movie: Star Wars: Episode IX.
Angry Birds 2 has been moved up for Sept. 6, 2019 from its previous date of Sept. 20, of the same year. That takes it to the same date now as the horror sequel It at Warner Bros.
Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle was released during the Christmas holiday on Dec. 20, 2017 and has since grossed $404.5M domestically, $235.5M of which was made in 2018 to make it the No. 5 grosser of this year so far. Worldwide, the film which also starred Kevin Hart, Jack Black and Karen Gillian, grossed $961.7M.
Johnson took to Instagram today to announce the date:
Officially planting our JUMANJI flag. On DECEMBER 13th, 2019 – the game is not over. I hold JUMANJI very close to my heart and I’m beyond grateful you made our movie into the global juggernaut ($1BILLION+) it became. Can’t wait for you to see what our new adventure & new characters have in store as Christmas comes early. And once again, I get to slap @kevinhart4real’s lip’s into next week. The world is happy. #FearTheDrums #TheGameIsNotOver #JUMANJI DECEMBER 13th, 2019
