Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle was the fourth highest grossing movie of 2017, which surprised a lot of people. And now the movie’s star Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson has some good news for fans.
Johnson went on Instagram recently to thank fans for supporting the new Jumanji movie, and even revealed that it became Sony’s highest grossing movie ever passing films starring Spiderman and James Bond. At the end of his post, Johnson also revealed that as a producer for the film, he’s begun work to make a sequel.
It’s official: Last night you made JUMANJI, Sony’s biggest movie ever. EVER. Previous record held by SpiderMan. My #1 goal is always giving the audience what they want and always sending ya home happy. Working on the sequel now, so bye bye @kevinhart4real’s character. 😂🖕🏾 Love y’all 🤟🏾 and THANK YOU. #JUMANJI #SonysBiggestMovieEver #Grateful
In his caption, Johnson also wrote, “Working on the sequel now, so bye bye @kevinhart4real’s character.”
The first Jumanji movie involved kids finding an old board game that brought jungle animals to life, while the second one starring the Rock featured people getting sucked into a jungle through a 1980’s arcade game. So we’re guessing they ramp up the technology for the sequel, and the next movie will be about characters trapped in virtual reality.
How badass can the Rock look while wearing VR glasses? Probably will still look pretty badass, actually.
