Earlier this week we got a look at the first official cast photo from the UNTITLED JUMANJI SEQUEL featuring Kevin Hart, Dwayne Johnson, Karen Gillan and Jack Black dressed up as almost caricatures of jungle explorers. There's been a few theories of why that is, including that they may have been stuck in the game for a long time or that they're even game pieces! Karen Gillan caught a little bit of flak for her revealing outfit, of which she's defended on Twitter.

I think all of the outfits look a little cartoon-y, but I'm guessing that's the vibe they're going for. Either way, I don't have a problem with it in the least. Especially Karen Gillan's. Holy hell. Perhaps we may get some official news regarding these outfits sooner than later, in order to avoid more controversy. In any case, Dwayne Johnson looks like he's having a lot of fun on-set, as evidenced by this Instagram video.

The UNTITLED JUMANJI SEQUEL will open in theaters on July 28, 2017.

I might be a kook. However, I wonder. Is this outfit outrage manufactured? Karen Gillan is not wearing a bikini, lingerie, or a "jungle queen" outfit (such as Sheena might wear). She is not dressed so "immodestly" that conservatives would or should care. She is not dressed so salaciously in such an f'n objectified way that progressives should be upset.

I am surprised at the unlikely upset. Therefore, this [link] Jumanji publicity--if fishy, IMO.

However, let us say that the outrage is

However, let us say that the outrage is real. We entertainment consumers and Western citizens must decide. Do we really want a popular literature that is so [link] that "dirty" images such as the above are banned for the "greater good". Study history. What do we North Americans think of Cromwell's England, Puritan America, Victorian England, and 1950s America? What became of the arts during those times--even though loud voices and fervent leaders had their hearts in the right places.

Perhaps, those who are uncomfortable with the upcoming Jumanji should do as follows. They should have their say on-line and elsewhere, and we should consider what they have to say. Then, the offended should skip the movie and "vote with their dollars". The studio will notice whether Jumanji was too risque for a large audience. The studio will notice which demographics decided to skip the movie. However, the offended should NOT pressure the studio (under threat of protest or legal action, relational violence and financial violence respectively) to alter the art and censor the film. American art must be free to challenge, provoke, titillate, thrill, and even offend if that art is to be true and realistic (e.g. scanty clothing in hot temps), if that art is to reach its potential, and if that art is not to speak for only a few but potentially to everyone.

I guess since it is a kid's movie, I get a little flak but this is pushing the envelope on what is justifiably worth getting upset over. I do think either way the payoff is still just a BS reason to get her in that outfit.

Theory

My theory is that Karen Gillan's character is a child in our world and when she gets pulled into the game, she becomes an adult. Or maybe a card is played that makes her age suddenly.

Robin Williams character aged normally while trapped in the game. So maybe she got caught when she was younger and thus grew up with that outfit.

Don't SJW's have bigger issues than what an actress is wearing in a movie, my goodness. Looking forward to this though I love The Rock and Karen Gillan.

No their ridiculous need to wine about everything, no matter how small, is what makes them SJW's.
