The film is rated PG and stars Karen Gillan, Jack Black, Dwayne Johnson, and Bobby Cannavale. It is the sequel to “Jumanji”, a 1995 adaptation of the 1981 children’s book of the same title, starring the legendary Robin Williams.

The late Williams remains to be an integral part of the film as his character, Alan Parrish, is instrumental to both the physical and emotional journey that the younger characters will take on in the film.

The plot follows four high school students who discovered an old video game console that allows them to literally be the adult avatars that they chose to play. In order to escape the Jumanji world and come back to the real world, they will use the clues left by Allan Parrish 20 years ago.
