Watch the first full trailer for "Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle"

  • Posted 11 months Ago

After the teaser yesterday, the first full trailer for the new Jumanji reboot, Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle, has arrived.

Fans of the original Jumanji get ready to be very, very disappointed - the mystical board game has been replaced, or “updated” if you will, with a video game console. Four high-school students who are clearing out a room during detention stumble across it and get sucked into the screen as soon as they start to play. Each of the kids transform into the character they have chosen to play as, and as soon as they land in the jungle the struggle to try and beat the game in order to return to the real world begins.

It unfortunately looks like it’ll be pretty damn terrible. Take a look for yourself above and have a read of the full synopsis below.

When four high-school kids discover an old video game console with a game they’ve never heard of – Jumanji – they are immediately drawn into the game’s jungle setting, literally becoming the avatars they chose: gamer Spencer becomes a brawny adventurer (Dwayne Johnson); football jock Fridge loses (in his words) “the top two feet of his body” and becomes an Einstein (Kevin Hart); popular girl Bethany becomes a middle-aged male professor (Jack Black); and wallflower Martha becomes a badass warrior (Karen Gillan). What they discover is that you don’t just play Jumanji – you must survive it. To beat the game and return to the real world, they’ll have to go on the most dangerous adventure of their lives, discover what Alan Parrish left 20 years ago, and change the way they think about themselves – or they’ll be stuck in the game forever…

Starring Dwayne Johnson, Kevin Hart, Karen Gillan, and Jack Black, Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle is out in cinemas 22 December.
