Nearly two months into principal photography and filming on the sequel to 2017's Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle has wrapped before moving locations.
Star Dwayne Johnson posted a behind-the-scenes photo of the production on his Instagram account, announcing the end of filming in Georgia while teasing on-location filming to begin shortly for the sequel's more exotic locations.

✌🏾out from Dr. Smolder Bravestone of JUMANJI. That’s a wrap on our Atlanta portion of production. A huge THANK YOU to our hard working & talented Georgia film crew. Once again, it’s been my pleasure to put in the work with all of you and look forward to our next adventure down the road. Our production train rolls on to shoot in some pretty wild locations - the hot jungles 🌴 to the icy snow capped mountains 🏔 and to the blistering desert 🐫 dunes. Still much work to be done, but we’re making something pretty cool & fun for our audiences around the world this Christmas. #teamwork #JUMANJI #TheSmolderingDoctor @hhgarcia41 📸
While the 2017 film had taken place primarily in a jungle, Johnson hinted the sequel would not only return to the tropical setting, but also include snowy mountains and sweltering deserts this time around.
Johnson reprises his role as Doctor Smolder Bravestone, a video game avatar of nerdy high schooler Spencer Gilpin in the Jumanji action-adventure world. Principal photography is next expected to resume in Hawaii for the film's more tropical settings until the end of the month for a holiday release this year.
The Jumanji sequel will hit theaters on December 13. Jake Kasdan returns to direct the movie, which stars Dwayne Johnson, Kevin Hart, Jack Black, Karen Gillan, Danny DeVito, Danny Glover, Alex Wolff, Ser’Darius Blain, Madison Iseman and Morgan Turner.
