JumanJi: Welcome to the Jungle
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.
