Despite some initial reservations, last year’s JUMANJI: WELCOME TO THE JUNGLE was not only surprisingly funny but damn good fun to boot! Nobody expected the sequel to the Robin Williams starring 1995 caper to be such a surefire hit but the gung-ho nature of the film mixed with energetic performances from it’s cast led to it hitting $961.9m at the global box-office. Now megastar wrestler-turned actor Dwayne Johnson has turned to Instagram to announce that JUMANJI 3 is on it’s way. Check it out:

Ladies, gents and children of all ages.. The JUMANJI SEQUEL is officially underway. Holy shit what a dynamite pitch from our writer/director Jake Kasdan. We couldn’t stop laughing and most importantly – like our first JUMANJI – the HEART in our story is our anchor. Writing with Jake, are our original JUMANJI writers Jeff Pinkner and Scott Rosenberg. Back to produce is my twin, Matt Tolmach and myself, @danygarciaco & @hhgarcia41. And sorry for the spoiler but @kevinhart4real dies in the first 15 seconds of the movie, to what I’m assuming will be a HUGE standing ovation from the audience and the cast @karengillanofficial @jackblack @nickjonas 😂 #TheSmolderReturns #SevenBucksProds #SONY #JUMANJI
Wow. So poor Kevin Hart’s character gets bumped off after 15 seconds? SPOILER ALERT! Mr Johnson is of course having a cheeky little dig at his co-star but it’s good to see him so excited about his projects. He’s a funny chap that rock fella. There’s no news on a plot for the movie as of yet but December 2019 has been penciled in for it’s release.
