So apparently a Jumanji reboot is in the works, and I gotta say... So far I'm not impressed. I think this will be a major flop. But you read ahead and decide for yourself.
There have been some new plot details revealed on the reboot starring The Rock, Kevin Hart, and Jack Black. One big thing that sticks out? The reboot of a movie about a board game isn't actually about a board game now. Because it's 2017 it's instead about a video game.
Here's some of the new plot points:
“The footage begins with four high schoolers in detention. Their teacher orders them to clean out the basement of the school, and they find an old video game console, which features the game Jumanji. You pick a character, and as the teens learn you are that person in the game … which transports you to a jungle.
“One rather nerdy boy is surprised (and rather pleased) to see he’s got the muscles of The Rock. The popular girl in school is horrified to learn she’s got the body of Jack Black.”
