Jumanji sequel on the cards
Jumanji: Welcome to The Jungle, featuring Dwayne Johnson in the lead, was released in December last year
Released in 1995, the adventure fantasy film Jumanji was based on the story of two kids who play a magical board game, which puts them in a host of dangers that can only be stopped by finishing the game. Late actor Robin Williams played the lead role in the film.
A modern sequel to the film titled Jumanji: Welcome to The Jungle was released in 2017 with Dwayne Johnson in the lead. Though the film wasn't a direct sequel to the 1995 film, the makers had retained the original's essence, with the story based on a bunch of high schoolers, who get trapped in a video game and the obstacles they go through to get out of it.
Following the success of the 2017 film, its makers have announced a sequel to it, which will be released in December 2019, around the same time as Star Wars: Episode IX. Though they have disclosed the release plans of the film, there is no official word about the plot, crew or cast.
