jumanji the next level trailer

After the sensational box office success of 2017’s Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle, director Jake Kasdan and co. knew they had to bring its sequel to a whole new level. And they did more than simply title the third Jumanji film Jumanji: The Next Level. They brought in two legendary comedians in the form of Danny DeVito and Danny Glover — for about the 15 minutes of the movie. The rest of the movie will consist of Dwayne Johnson and Kevin Hart doing DeVito and Glover impressions, respectively. Genius.

Jumanji: The Next Level takes us back into the world of the video game, which has now malfunctioned and accidentally pulled in DeVito and Glover’s cranky grandpas, swapping them in the bodies of Johnson’s Dr. Bravestone and Hart’s Franklin Finbar. Shenanigans naturally ensue. Watch the new Jumanji The Next Level trailer below.

This time, DeVito and Glover’s characters — two cranky grandpas who happen to be in the same house when the Jumanji game malfunctions — are swapped into the bodies of Dwayne Johnson and Kevin Hart. That’s right, this is a whole movie of Dwayne Johnson doing a Danny DeVito impression. Watch the Jumanji The Next Level trailer below.
