Dwayne Johnson takes Jumanji to the whole other level by channeling Danny DeVito in the next installment of the long-running franchise. Sony Pictures dropped the official trailer today for Jumanji: The Next Level, and as might be expected by the first sentence of this paragraph, the action adventure includes a Rock-size dose of comedy.
Sony Pictures’ logline: “In Jumanji: The Next Level, the gang is back but the game has changed. As they return to Jumanji to rescue one of their own, they discover that nothing is as they expect. The players will have to brave parts unknown and unexplored, from the arid deserts to the snowy mountains, in order to escape the world’s most dangerous game.”
The large cast, with lots of role-switching, includes Dwayne Johnson, Jack Black, Kevin Hart, Karen Gillan, Nick Jonas, Awkwafina, Ser’Darius Blain, Madison Iseman, Morgan Turner, Alex Wolff, with Danny Glover and Danny DeVito.
Check out the trailer above to see who switches with whom. No spoilers here.
