JUMANJI: WELCOME TO THE JUNGLE Is Officially Getting A Sequel But Will The Cast Return?

Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle exceeded expectations at the box office and became one of 2017's biggest movies as a result. Now, we have news on a sequel and you can find out more after the jump...

The first trailer for Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle was overshadowed by people complaining about Karen Gillan's shorts but no one really expected much from the reboot regardless. However, the movie massively overperformed at the box office with a haul of over $850 million worldwide and so it probably won't surprise you to learn that a sequel is now officially in the works at Sony Pictures. 

According to Variety, the plan is for Dwayne Johnson, Kevin Hart, Jack Black, and Karen Gillan to all reprise their roles, while Jake Kasdan is going to be back in the director's chair for the follow-up.

Scott Rosenberg and Jeff Pinkner are in talks to pen the screenplay and they worked on the first movie (alongside Chris McKenna and Erik Sommers) but most notably wrote the upcoming Venom movie starring Tom Hardy. A production start date hasn't been revealed and Jumanji 2 doesn't currently have a release date either. As always, though, be sure to stay tuned for additional updates on the sequel.
