The primary cast of the Jumanji sequel from Sony Pictures has already been confirmed with Dwayne Johnson, Kevin Hart, Jack Black and Karen Gillan taking the lead roles. In addition, a photo from the set recently showed us how they’ll all look in the jungles of the infamous board game. However, it turns out that this new take on Jumanji has been given a contemporary twist.
As news of four new young cast members hit the web this weekend, so did rumored details of what the Jumanji sequel is about. Rather than focusing on a board game, this time a group of kids get sucked into a video game version of Jumanji. So how do our previously announced cast members come into play?

Production on the new Jumanji is underway over in the jungles of Hawaii. Kevin Hart just recently posted a first look at our main characters played by himself, Dwayne Johnson, Karen Gillan and Jack Black. Now it’s Hart’s Central Intelligence co-star’s turn to share a behind-the-scenes look at the movie that was initially thought to be reboot, but is actually a sequel. In fact, it sounds like it’s more of a legacy-quel since the movie will pay tribute to Robin Williams’ character in some capacity.
In addition, Jumanji 2 has added some new cast members, including Flight of the Conchords and What We Do In The Shadows star Rhys Darby, and Karen Gillan revealed a tease about why her character is so scantily clad in the dangerous jungle. See all that and Dwayne Johnson’s Jumanji 2 set video after the jump. Read More »

Now the first photo from the set has been released, and it’s clear this will be much different from the original Jumanji adaptation.
