When it comes to movies sequels, I am always hesitant if I should watch it. The expectations are always high and if they are not met, we have a big disappointment. It happens pretty often. The 1995’s Jumanji movie was one of my favorite movies of all times until the first sequel Jumanji Welcome to the Jungle hit theaters in 2017. It was hilarious and so clever how these new characters made the return of Jumanji after 22 years!
This week I had the chance to screen the second sequel, Jumanji The Next Level, which will be available in theaters December 13, 2019.
I have to say, this movie is hilarious from start to finish. The additional cast to this sequel was pleasantly amusing but I have to admit my favorite addition was Danny DeVito. If you haven’t seen the first sequel, don’t fret. This is a completely new movie and they do make references to anything you should know.
So in a nutshell, Spencer fixes the Jumanji game and goes back into the game alone. His friends go back into the game to bring him back but while traveling into the game two other characters mistakenly go with them. It is definitely a crazy mishmash of game characters but undoubtedly funny. They are in the “next level” of the game which is completely different than what they had experienced in the past. This is definitely a great movie for everyone starting with tweens. It can be confusing for younger children to follow along.
Don’t miss it and head to the theaters on December 13, 2019!
