Jumanji is coming back, and the sequel is not leaving anyone behind. In addition to bringing back the star-studded cast that headlined Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle, the untitled sequel will also bring back the film's young cast members.
Alex Wolff, Ser’darius Blain, Madison Iseman, and Morgan Turner have all signed on to return to the sequel to Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle, according to Deadline.
In Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle, instead of jungle animals wreaking havoc in the real world, the kids who found the infamous board game were sucked into a video game world, where they were transformed into adult avatars that were nothing like them.
Wolff was a nerd who was transformed into Doctor Smolder Bravestone. Blain was a jock who was transferred into the diminutive Mouse Finbar. Iseman was the popular girl transformed into Professor Sheldon Oberon. Finally, Turner was the quiet introvert transformed into the butt-kicking Ruby Roundhouse.
While Dwayne Johnson, Kevin Hart, Jack Black and Karen Gillan are returning, they're set to be joined by Danny DeVito, Danny Glover and Awkwafina.
Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle was a massive success. The movie hit theaters during the 2017 holiday season and was a giant hit, reaching $557 million internationally and $404 million domestically to barely miss the $1 billion mark worldwide.
The Jumanji sequel will hit theaters on Dec. 13, 2019. 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.
