This is the sequel to the reboot. Produced by The Rock.



The good: if you liked the reboot Jumanji a lot, you will likely enjoy this one.
There are some twists and turns in this one, and also plenty of plot holes you should just ignore.
Plus, I think Karen Gillam has more screen time than last time, and in the same skimpy outfit that her character sports. I know she recently had a birthday (same as Mary-Elizabeth Winstead), so this should be a nice boost for her career. For those who are fans of her, this should provide your fix.




The not-so-good: They mostly just found some highly annoying characters to add to the rotation, and a modicum of effort was made to craft a script around these new additions.




There is one coda. It is completed before the End Credits are rolling the main characters/actors.

I didn't even know it was a reboot. I thought it was a continuation on the original.

Who played Dr. Stoneheart in the Bonnie Hunt version? Who played Nigel?

I didn't recall much similarity, or continuity suggesting the same story arc, the continuation rather than reboot.

The Sequel to Jumanji (1995) was Zathura, which I liked immensly better, other than the Dax Sheppard part - although who can play a man-boy-child better than he? Director Favreau, stars Josh Hutcherson and Kristen Stewart in early roles.

I don't remember much about the original Jumanji except for Robin Williams and Kirsten Dunst, even though I saw it in the theater. I remember really liking it, but I've never seen it again since then. I half-saw Zathura in my late 20's, but it was just on in the background while I was doing something else so I didn't really give it a chance.



I was just saying that I thought I'd heard at some point that it was a continuation of the original one. I could be mistaken or maybe the person that I heard it from was.

I don't personally find her to be that attractive, but she does look nice in that outfit though.

You are welcome.

I do find it impressive that the look was maintained with this many years elapsed. Not all Hollywood actresses choose to do that.

Damn dude.

Look at the legs on this movie.

Week 12 Box Office: $2,925,684

Compare that to Week 12 of these...

Joker: $266,462
Captain Marvel: $589,081
Avenger: End Game: $3,509,054
Rise of Skywalker: $503,925 (Week 11... We're in week 12 now)

I bet it is. It's got a relatively small Domestic Box Office, but the Week 12 numbers it put up are much, much higher than most other movies out there. Including good ones.

Pretty impressive.
