Ju­manJi: Wel­come to the Jun­gle

What's On (Abu Dhabi) - - CULTURE -

DI­REC­TOR: Jake Kas­dan CAST: Dwayne John­son, Kevin Hart, Karen Gil­lan, Jack Black First off, this is not a re­boot, it’s a se­quel. Four teens stum­ble upon a retro Ju­manji video game and are sucked into the fa­mous jun­gle-themed puz­zle. To make it more chal­leng­ing, the high school stu­dents have trans­formed into the char­ac­ters they se­lected – e.g. the class swot be­comes ad­ven­ture man Dr Smol­der Brave­stone (Dwayne John­son) and the pop­u­lar girl be­comes book­worm Pro­fes­sor Oberon (Jack Black). It’s de­light­fully meta, and even in­cludes a few nods to the late Robin Wil­liams, who made the orig­i­nal 1990s fam­ily film a true clas­sic.
