Today is the day that the Sony Pictures feature “Jumanji: The Next Level” opens in theaters everywhere.

If this film is on your itinerary for the weekend, be sure to take a look at the Official Theatrical Poster, premise and casting once more.
The Premise: Unknown to his friends, Spencer kept the pieces of the Jumanji video game, and one day worked to repair the system in the basement of his grandfather’s house. When Spencer’s friends, Bethany, Fridge, and Martha arrive, they find Spencer missing and the game running, and decide to re-enter Jumanji to save him. Spencer’s grandfather, Eddie, and his friend, Milo Walker, hear the commotion, and inadvertently get sucked into the game too. The teenaged friends must help Eddie and Milo get used to their in-game avatars and get them to help find Spencer and escape Jumanji once again.

Piercing Ken Thoughts: While I can agree that this looks like a lot of fun for a film (and especially on a rainy day like today), its doubtful that I will be catching this. Mostly because I never managed to see the previous film. I did see the long ago original “Jumanji” with the late great Robin Williams but its been awhile since I’ve sat back down to review that flick. What do you readers think? Is this something you will be bringing the younger generation of your family to during the early release time? I’d definitely watch this on one of my pay channels after seeing the first chapter but not before that. I think I am most excited about the opening of “Star Wars: The Rise Of Skywaylker” which hits theaters next week. Let me know your thoughts down in the comments below. See you next time.
