    Hey, it's a sequel. I actually don't give a shit about that. The original was heart-warming but implied a sequel could take place (you know, if you even remember it or bothered to watch).

    The Rock and Jack Black will likely be great in this movie. Gillan is a solid choice, and Kevin Hart is hilarious most of the time.

    I can't wait to see chemistry between Black and Rock. Kevin usually just fits in anywhere to me.

    There was a sequel, a sequel so popular and successful that everyone has completely forgotten about it.

    No, a real sequel.

    Looks like this version of Jumanji IS a video game (maybe an MMO) and the Rock, Hart, Black, and Karen are the in game Avatars of the jumanji jr kids. There are two guys and two girls so one of the girls will be the Jack Black character either by choice or some error when picking an avatar to play. Then again one of the guys could be Karen's character. This being a video game would explain Karen's wardrobe or lack thereof.

    As for the change from board game to video game my guess is that someone video game company got a hold of the board game and used its powers to connect it to a server to create an MMO without realizing the consequences of doing so

    *Spiritual* sequel loosely based on a book from the same author as Jumanji.

    I don't even feel like sharing that trailer I just saw. It takes place in a fucking video game. Some kids get pulled in to a fucking video game and the stars of the film are their avatars. No more mystic board game. Someone green lit this. Holy shit.

    Almost like it's updated with the times.

    It's probably gonna be bad. But i don't get bitching about updating movie remakes for the times.

    Almost like you forgot that it's a direct sequel to the first movie.

    I get it, being sucked in to a board game was Saturday morning cartoon as fuck. If it was a remake, that's fine. It's Jumanji for the modern day kid. But why throw out the board game from the first movie entirely tho? "It's updated!" isn't a valid excuse for just retconning a large part of the first movie's mythos. That's like a sequel to The Matrix that takes place in space.

    I didn't expect much from this, but Hollywood sniffed all the cocaine on this one.

    Because people bitch when they do the exact same thing too. It's perfectly reasonable that a board game like that would also have a video game counterpart.

    And honestly, I'm happy they're taking the kids out of most of it and let their avatars be the main focus. Far better actors.

    But is it? I mean, how many African tribes had access to Atari-era gaming consoles?

    I agree that this movie was doomed from the start, either side would be annoyed with something. No Robin Williams and "but why?" are two huge reasons as to why this shouldn't exist.

    The first Jumanji board game seemed like it was designed as one of a kind. Not some Milton Bradley mass produced game with other merchandise. So no, I still don't see the justification of the video game element other than shitty writing.

    Saw the Trailer. Cliche as hell but I laughed a few time especially when Jack Black was hitting on Dwayne Johnson.

    Yeah, and that's the point. Pretty man childish of me to argue the consistency of a kid's movie sequel. I just really enjoyed the first film as a kid and feel like this generation won't get that same experience. (Muh nostalgia!) Granted, they can always watch the first movie, but yeah.

    I mean, they will because their experience isn't going to be bogged down by your nostalgia.
