After becoming a surprise hit last December, the new Jumanji reboot is officially getting a sequel according to star and producer Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson, with the wrestler-turned-actor confirming the news in an Instagram video.
“You guys officially made Jumanji Sony’s biggest domestic movie ever. Ever!” he said in the video.
Johnson went on to reveal that the film’s success means a follow-up is now in the pipeline – though as of yet there’s no word on how the film’s characters will return following the fairly tied-up ending of the first film.
“As producer of Jumanji, we are working on the sequel right now,” Johnson said.
He joked: “And speaking of giving the audience what they want, I’m giving the audience what they want and killing off Kevin Hart’s character for good, and everyone will be happy!”
Ouch – but hey, that’s just the law of the jungle.
