What Will Happen in Jumanji 3?
The sequel of 1995’s iconic movie, Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle introduced the Jumanji in a new video game form (the last one was a board game). After all the troubles and adventure inside the game, the gang finally succeeds to destroy the video game.
However, the photo from Dwayne’s tweet says something different, when analyzed critically. The picture features the video game cartridge from the previous movie. The person holding it seems like he is trying to assemble the entire unit again. Moreover, Jumanji 3 will focus on the origin of the game. The movie will reveal how the game came to existence. Furthermore, it will explain how the game remakes itself and changes its form from one to another.
Dwayne Johnson stated that the director Jake Kasdan have some dynamite plans for the next installment. Even Jake also revealed that the film would fetch more references from the original movie.
