Now, you might assume having a weakness for cake is only bad for the waistline – but you would be very, very wrong. As Hart’s character finds out for himself after taking a bite of pound cake in the new trailer for Jumanji…

Luckily, each of the characters have three lives before they die for good.

Hart stars alongside Karen Gillan, Jack Black and Dwayne Johnson in this reboot of the original 1995 film Jumanji, featuring the late Robin Williams.

In this follow-up, it’s two decades later and a group of American teenagers discover an old video game console with a game they’ve never heard of: Jumanji.

After the words “Jumanji” flicker on an old TV set, they are immediately sucked into the game’s jungle setting and into the bodies of their avatars, played by Gillan, Black, Johnson and Hart. All four must go on the most dangerous adventure of their lives or risk being stuck in the game forever…
