It’s been two years since we’ve explored the world of Jumanji with “Jumanji: Welcome To The Jungle” and that means a sequel is just about right by now. Let’s take a look at how the story continues and changes with the times with the first official trailer that I’ve embedded down below. I’ve also added some premise and casting. Let’s watch.
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: This looked like a lot of fun but I didn’t see the first installment and cannot recall much about the original film with the late great Robin Williams enough to want to focus on it. I pretty much have my film of media with all the superhero movies and television shows but that’s just me. What do you readers and fans of this franchise think about the latest installment in the story? Chime in down below in the comments section as its always great to hear your views. Until next time.
