The Rock Has Revealed That The ‘Jumanji’ Remake Is Actually A Sequel

The Rock Jumanji

Plot twist.

The reaction to a ‘Jumanji’ remake has been pretty mixed – some people absolutely love the fact that their favourite childhood film is getting a reboot, while others fear it is going to be completely bastardised and should be left as it is.

The latest revelation might generate even more of a reaction, as Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson has just revealed that the new movie is actually going to be a sequel. Interesting.

Previous reports suggested that The Rock would work with Kevin Hart for a remake of the original, but now it looks like they will be continuing the story. He made the announcement on Instagram, where he promised:

We will honor his name and the character of ‘Alan Parrish’ will stand alone and be forever immortalised in the world of Jumanji in an earnest and cool way.

Well I hope that he sticks to his word because it would be absolutely criminal to ruin such a classic film.

The sequel isn’t out until 2017 so we still have a little while to wait. Until then, did you know that there’s going to be a TV version of ‘The Lost Boys’? Seems like all the classics are getting a remake these days.
