Here's the first look at Jumanji: The Next Level, the follow up to the wildly successful (reboot?) starring The Rock and Kevin Hart.
Here's what we know: Kevin Hart and The Rock are gonna be working their asses off to make this funny for 90 minutes.
In the prequel to this flick all the characters were in for a wild ride. Swapping genders and races. No one knew what to expect. It was a funny ride full of unexpected twists and turns.
Now, you got a sequel with a couple of characters who have literally been there and done that. Here's the only real twist: The Rock is now old Danny DeVito and Hart is old Danny Glover.
Hmmm. I'm not sure that "I feel young again" can sustain an entire movie. It's REALLY tough to pull off. Just ask Ron Howard who did it back in the day with Cocoon. (Great flick BTW.) Everyone was old in that one, and when they discovered the Fountain of Youth, there was a real dilemma.
Don't know if Jumanji: The Next Level will have those kinds of stakes. (I'm sure SOMEONE will want to stay in the game. Calling it now.)
Maybe we're way over thinking it and all people want is jokes and laughs.
