In Jumanji: The Next Level, the crew is back in action, but the game is not the same as they remember. The original cast of Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, Kevin Hart, Karen Gillan, and Jack Black are back, but they have some new friends this time around. Danny DeVito, Danny Glover, and Awkwafina are just a few of the new faces we see in the movie.
If you saw Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle, you should have a pretty good understanding of what to expect from the original Jumanji crew. The chemistry between the four can clearly be seen on screen. Jack Black’s hilarious antics mixed with the friendship Dwayne Johnson and Kevin Hart have off the screen makes their characters feel even more real on the screen. The film takes what Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle started and makes it even greater during this film. There are new levels added to the game that are even more challenging. On top of this, the game is starting to fight back against the players, making the teenager’s alter egos mission even harder than before. The players must once again figure out a way to beat the game, and get out while trying to rescue another player.
Jumanji: The Next Level really does take the crew to the next level in this movie. The danger is greater, the thrills are even more hair-raising, and the humor is funnier than ever. If you want to see this hilarious, action-packed movie, come out to the Commons Lawn on September 5th for either showing at 8:30 or 10:45pm. We will have free popcorn and concessions for sale. We hope to see you there!
