Dwayne Johnson confirms that Jumanji film is not a reboot but a continuation
Dwayne Johnson starring in a reboot of JUMANJI initially had some people scratching their heads, but it looks like there may be some sort of method to the madness after all. The Rock recently posted the following picture on his Instagram, having a few words to say about his experience on FAST 8. He then went on about how excited he was to work with Kevin Hart and Jack Black on the new JUMANJI film, and that it was actually a continuation and not a reboot! Take a look!
Finished strong and on to the next. That's an officially wrap on #FastAndFurious8. Thank you to our director @fgarygray for the vision and execution. Thank you UNIVERSAL for being tremendous partners as always, thank you to all my fellow co-stars for the daily effort and grind. Scott Eastwood you handsome sumbitch! Natalie Emmanuel I have a cold Budweiser ready for you and Tyrese Gibson you still have the biggest smile and forehead I've ever seen.😂 And a huge THANK YOU to our hard working production crew - the backbone of our business. Your kind words meant a lot to me last night - thank you! In the end, we all rallied, as great teams do, kicked ass and will deliver an amazing movie to the world. Proud of our entire FAST FAMILY.
And now in two weeks I'll reunite with ol' friends Kevin Hart & Jack Black and we have the honor to introduce a whole new generation to the amazing world of #JUMANJI. *(for the record we are NOT making a reboot, but rather a continuation of the awesome JUMANJI story). It's also crazy to me how much me, Kev and Jack look like triplets when we're together. Man this is gonna be FUN.

I don't hold JUMANJI up to any high regard, but I think it's cool if director Jake Kasdan and crew are actually making a sequel. Anyone want to place any bets on whether or not the kids from the first film are back? Maybe not the same actors, but I could see Jack Black as that little boy grown up. In any case, The Rock knows how to entertain, so I hope the rest of the film can keep up with that dude's charisma!
The new JUMANJI film is scheduled to open in theaters on July 28, 2017.
