It looks like every mega-money blockbuster is ready to spawn a franchise. Jumanji: The next level is no exception, and there are some pretty obvious tips in the credit scene. The film generated a total of $ 810 million in revenue worldwide, but with a production budget of about $ 125 to $ 132 million, a sequel was almost inevitable. Franchise sequel, depending on how you count, Jumanji 3 or 4.
If you count the original Jumanji in the sequel, we are looking at Jumanji 4. However, director Jake Kasdan himself hinted that the next sequel would be Jumanji 3.
Okay, but we are completely confused. Either way, there’s definitely another movie and this is that we’ve ever known about the next Jumanji sequel.
Release Date Jumanji 4
The exact release date has not yet been announced, but Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle and Jumanji has two years between them with respective releases in 2017 and 2019. So with this pattern, Jumanji 4 can be screened in theaters in December 2022, as Sony continues.
This is explained through the pandemic delay of the coronavirus. This was delayed by a year from December 2021 after director Jake Kasdan said the film shooting was stopped in April 2020.
But it looks like Sony has no plans to create another sequel yet. Star Karen Gillan has revealed on July 2021 that she has not heard of the latest information on Jumanji.
“I really don’t know anything about [Jumanji],” Gillan told Collider. “I thought why no one spoke to me – I don’t know. I think they do it, and I don’t know how they treat it, but so much fun and I hope they do something else. “
However, the December 2022 release date is still possible. Jumanji Shooting: The Next Level will only run from January through May 2019, in time for the December 2019 release date.
The cast of Jumanji 4
As previously mentioned, Johnson is expected to return as Bravestone, the other main characters of the film / Sprite-Ruby Roundhouse (Karen Gillan), Franklin “Mouse” Finder (Kevin Hart), Professor Sheldon “Sherry” Oberon (Jack) are all expected to return.
So with Madison Iseman as Bethany, Alex Wolff as Spencer, Morgan Turner as Martha, and Ser’Darius Blaine as the Fridge, we can expect their teenage real-world versions to be back. Nick, a veteran of the franchise by Jumanji Jonas, Awkwafina (Minfleetfoot), and Colin Hanks (Alex Freak) may return.
The plot of Jumanji 4
The ending of Jumanji: The Next Level set the stage for the sequel when Spencer’s mother (Marin Hinkle) and the heater mechanic were sucked into the game and some of the game’s animals were released into the world.
Instead of seeing the characters sucked into the jungle in the video game, it suggests the forest will come to them instead of the exotic animals of America today, like the original Jumanji. You can see teenagers arguing. This is not confirmed yet but still leaves room for the Avatar to exit the game.
The directors Kasdan and Dwayne Johnson have both suggested that the next level of villain, the sadistic Jurgen, will be featured as an avatar in the sequel, uncovering his true identity.
Since the movie is still in the production stage we haven’t yet received any trailers. But we’ll keep you updates with any sort of developments.
