jumanji welcome to the jungle early buzz

Nostalgia-infused remakes are a dime a dozen, but successful ones are another story. Surprisingly, it seems like Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle is the latter.

But it seems like Dwayne Johnson, Jack Black, Kevin Hart, and Karen Gillan are up to the task, delivering the laughs and the love toward Williams’ character in Jake Kasdan‘s sorta-sequel to the 1995 Jumanji movie.

Below, check out some of the Jumanji Welcome to the Jungle early buzz.

Hitman tv series
