Y’all, I never thought we’d get to this point but, here we are.
The trailer for the upcoming Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle film has be released out into the world like a baby butterfly you nurtured from the cocoon, and instead of falling out of the sky, plummeting towards near certain death, might we say this butterfly is SOARING?
Seriously, the trailer is really good y’all. The movie, which stars Karen Gillan, Dwayne Johnson, Kevin Hart, and Jack Black, looks lightyears better than I thought it would. The whole short shorts/cutoff shirt controversy had me worried, but I’m satisfied (FOR NOW) with this explanation.
Anyway, after watching the entire trailer, might I say… I’m excited for this? Who knows! It could be really good! The premise manages to not copy the original, while also NOT worrying me about how they’re going to pull the whole movie off.
Four high school students have to do detention, or something, and they come across the Jumanji video game, which sucks them in, like the original, and, well, just watch the trailer below. Seriously.
Also, yes that IS Nick Jonas in the trailer. I paused it to make sure.
