The Next JUMANJI Movie Is Already In Development According To Director Jake Kasdan

The Next JUMANJI Movie Is Already In Development According To Director Jake Kasdan

Both Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle and Jumanji: The Next Level exceeded expectations critically and financially, so it probably won't come as a surprise to learn that another instalment is on the way...

The original Jumanji movie was released in 1995, but 2017's Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle reinvented the franchise and proved to be a huge success. Last year's The Next Level was also a hit, with a whopping $797 million at the worldwide box office and positive reviews

Despite COVID-19 putting Hollywood on hold for the foreseeable future, director Jake Kasdan - who helmed the reboot and its sequel - has confirmed that he's working on a follow-up.

"We were just getting into the conversation before this global calamity and we will re-engage it as soon as everybody’s settled," he said, confirming that the pandemic has slowed things down somewhat. However, he added that his hopes for the sequel are that it will be "exciting on its own two feet in a way that’s comparable to what the first two were for me."

Before we get too excited, though, the filmmaker was quick to point out that he's still in "the earliest days of trying to figure out what that would be."

Most intriguing, though, is what he had to say about Jurgen the Brutal (Game of Thrones star Rory McCann). It's previously been revealed that someone was playing as that character, and Kasdan noted that he "would love to" reveal that secret character in the next instalment. 

Oh, and talking of Jumanji: The Next Level, those of you who live in the UK might want to keep an eye out for the Blu-ray when it's released next week as it features a quote from ComicBookMovie.com!
