Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle was a surprise commercial and critical hit. The film made $962.1m worldwide and deservedly so. It was one of those reboot-equel’s that actually worked really well.
So I was excited to hear the sequel was coming together quite nicely. With Dwayne Johnson, Jack Black, Kevin Hart and Karen Gillan already on-board to return. Director Jake Kasdan is back as well.
The four teen actors Ser’Darius Blain, Madison Iseman, Morgan Turner and Alex Wolff also recently signed deals to return.
Now Deadline reports Nick Jonas will return to the world of Jumanji.
Jonas will reprise his role as Jefferson “Seaplane” McDonough, the fifth playable avatar who had been trapped in Jumanji for twenty years.
New to the franchise will be Awkwafina (Crazy Rich Asians), Danny DeVito (Matlida) and Danny Glover (Lethal Weapon).
The plot for the sequel is being kept under lock and key, with the film set to hit screens December 13, 2019.
