'Jumanji 3' is coming out this Christmas. Earlier, Dwayne Johnson had wrapped up shooting for the film in Atlanta in April first week. And now, actor-singer Nick Jonas announced on Twitter that he has wrapped up shooting for "Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle" sequel.
"That's a wrap! On another amazing 'Jumanji' adventure. Can't wait for you all to see this movie later this year," Nick tweeted.
The film is third in the series of the 1995 hit "Jumanji", starring Robert Williams. Jumanji is about two children who find and play a magical board game. In doing so, they release a man trapped for decades in it and a host of dangers that can only be stopped by finishing the game.
Jumanji : Welcome to the Jungle released twenty-one years after the events of the original film in 2017, where the board game evolves into a video game. Four high school teenagers who are transported to the game's jungle setting and become the avatars of the characters they chose, and later discover another victim trapped in the game as well. The only way out is to complete the game, and in doing so, they each discover the best of themselves and win with a newfound heroism to see the challenge through. The film featured Nick Jonas with actors Dwayne Johnson, Jack Black, Kevin Hart and Karen Gillan.
The untitled third Jumanji film is directed by Jake Kasdan and written by Jeff Pinkner and Scott Rosenberg. The film is an American- adventure action comedy. The whole band is back together in Jumanji 3, including Kevin Hart as avatar "Franklin Finbar," Nick Jonas as Jefferson "Seaplane", and the four young actors who played the high school players. Plus, Rhys Darby will be back as Nigel the in-game guide.
The film is scheduled to release in December 2019.
