You may have to wait until the cold winter of 2017 to see the new "Jumanji" film, but a new Instagram pic from Dwayne Johnson proves that the film will definitely bring the heat.
The photo from the film's Hawaii set shows the Rock driving a motorcycle one-handed while wielding a custom-built flame thrower with the other. As Johnson details in the photo's caption, the flame thrower is "secured with metal grips under my forearm giving me more leverage to drive my motorcycle with one arm -- and kill evil shit with my other."

Check out this bad ass custom made flame thrower that's secured with metal grips under my forearm giving me more leverage to drive my motorcycle with one arm - and kill evil shit with my other. Apparently it's also a good night to burn the hell outta my arm. Again. #OnLocation #HawaiianJungles #TheMostDangeeousGameOfAll #JUMANJI Dope shot taken by "the eye" himself.. @masistills
It was announced earlier this week that "Jumanji," originally slated to arrive next summer, would actually fit in better during the holiday season. “We were always slated to be released summer of 2017,” wrote Johnson in a post announcing the move, “but after months of shooting and editing our movie together, we realized we have a big family franchise on our hands, that’s full of Christmas wish fulfillment, fun and heart.”
It has been reported that the new “Jumanji” will pick up where the 1995 comedy classic starring Robin Williams left off. An adaptation of the 1981 children’s book by Chris Van Allsburg, the original centered on a young boy named Alan Parrish, who becomes trapped in a board game while playing with his best friend Sarah Whittle. Nearly three decades later, two siblings discover the game and unwittingly release the now-adult Alan (Williams). After finding Sarah, they work together to finish the game in hopes of undoing all of the destruction it unleashed.
Directed by Jake Kasdan (“Bad Teacher”), the new “Jumanji” reportedly revolves around four teens who play the game, and control the avatars of stars Johnson, Kevin Hart, Jack Black and Karen Gillan. Nick Jonas also stars.
