Here We Go Again with Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle

Thinking that a classic like Jumanji being remade can be a little scary. There is nothing worse than going in with expectations for the same kind of cinematic adventure and being disappointed. The comedic art of Robin Williams and Bonnie Hunt is not something any actor should tread lightly on. Who can forget the uber talented preteen Kirsten Dunst? That kind of talent is hard to find!

Kids loved the original Jumanji and quite frankly so did parents, making it a favorite of movie goers and dvd players for the last 20+ years. Those are big shoes to fill and the rumblings are starting to sound pretty positive. Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle will star Dwayne Johnson (aka The Rock), Kevin Hart, and Jack Black. Also starring in this version is actress Karen Gillan. Karen is best by Dr. Who fans as Amy Pond, and as Nebula in Guardians of the Galaxy where she is unrecognizable. If it was mentioned and the girls will want it mentioned, Joe Jonas is part of the cast as well.

The coming attractions show amazing special effects which definetly have come a long way since 1995. The story connects with the original showing the intricate game box. Only this time a video version is the center of the story. This seems more appropriate for this generation and the spin they put on it is sure to help in the comedy department. The cast of high school teens is transported into the video version as their game identities.

Social media is really talking about this film [ and that can only help bring in the crowds. There is nothing like positive chatter on social media to help catapult a movie into another family favorite. From the sounds of it the Jumanji franchise looks like it will have another addition that stands up over time.
