“Welcome to the Jungle” – The Full Jumanji Trailer Has Arrived! (VIDEO)
A sequel to the beloved adventure classic Jumanji has been in the works for what seems like a billion years, and the movie’s nearing release has had people scratching their heads, wondering when the first bit of Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle footage would be seen. This question has now been answered, as Sony has finally released an all-new Jumanji trailer, providing the first glimpse of footage for the action-packed adventure. Check out the video for yourself below:
The trailer starts out by introducing four high school troublemakers as they are forced to clean their school’s basement for their rowdy ways. Among the junk, the four teens find an old Atari-like video game system called “Jumanji”, and promptly ditch their responsibility for a quick gaming session. The kids soon find themselves pulled into the magical game, their avatars represented as none other than Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, Jack Black, Kevin Hart, and Karen Gillan.
Using each of their own preset skills, the gang must traverse the dangerous jungles of Jumanji and beat the game before being trapped there forever. To the appropriate tune of “Welcome to the Jungle” by Guns N’ Roses, the explosive Jumanji trailer is highlighted by intense and thrilling stampedes of jungle wildlife, The Rock and crew fighting endless waves of mercenaries, oh, and Jack Black getting eaten by a hippopotamus. Yes, that happens.
Not too much was known about Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle before the above footage was released, other than the few details dropped at this year’s CinemaCon. That, of course, is where the movie’s video game premise and official title were first unveiled. Other information, such as how the sequel will pay tribute to Robin Williams, were made known only recently by co-star Jack Black. Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle hits theaters on December 20th.
