Yes, ‘Jumanji 4’ is still very much happening! Here’s everything you need to know well-nigh the fourth installment of the franchise.
The inimitable Robin Williams first introduced us to the curious world of Jumanji, a magical workbench game that unleashes a world of venture and chaos, in the 1995 mucosa Jumanji, culminating in several successful continuations overly since. The sequel 2017 Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle and the 2019 third installment Jumanji: The Next Level expanded on that world, introducing new (but familiar) faces in the form of Dwayne Johnson, Karen Gillan, Kevin Hart, and Jack Black.
The franchise has been a success in the box office, so it’s no surprise that Jumanji 4, has, in fact, once been confirmed. Hiram Garcia, president of production at Seven Bucks Productions — the studio overdue the latest installments — confirmed in March that a fourth was “100 percent” happening, revealing the team has “been discussing it.”
“We’re in the process of moving that along,” Hiram told ComicBook.com. “I can’t tell you anything, but we do have big plans for it and that’s one of our favorite projects to work on and that’s cooking away.” With that in mind, here’s what you should know well-nigh Jumanji 4.
Where ‘Jumanji’ 3 Left Off
The original Jumanji followed Robin’s Alan Parrish, a man who has been stuck in the world of the magical workbench game for decades. It’s up to siblings Judy (Kirsten Dunst) and Peter (Bradley Pierce) to win the game in order to self-ruling him without they stumble upon it when they move into the Parrish mansion. Director Jake Kasdan gave the sequel a modern flare, turning Jumanji into a video game. Four upper schoolers — Alex Wolff as Spencer, Ser’Darius Blain as “Fridge,” Morgan Turner as Martha, and Madison Iseman as Bethany — get sucked into the game, thesping the role of variegated avatars (played by Dwayne, Karen, Kevin, and Jack star as the personnel avatars).
They’re then tasked with breaking a expletive in order to be freed from the game. Nick Jonas moreover stars as avatar Jefferson “Seaplane” McDonough in the second installment. Danny DeVito and Danny Glover joined the third mucosa as Spencer’s grandfather and his friend — both of whom get sucked into the game. Fellow newcomer Awkwafina played the role of a new avatar named Ming Fleetfoot. In the most recent installment, Fridge, Martha, and Bethany must re-enter the game fo bring Spencer home — but the game is now malfunctioning, resulting in increasingly obstacles to get home. In the mid-credits scene, Spencer’s mom and a mechanic are unwittingly sucked into the game, causing some of the jungle animals to escape into the real world.
What’s In Store For ‘Jumanji’ 4
Given the way the third installment ended, Jumanji 4 will in all likelihood explore the produce of Spencer’s mom (Marin Hinkle) and the unassuming mechanic getting sucked into the video game world of Jumanji. With the jungle animals escaped into the real world, too, havoc is to be expected. This moreover leaves room for the possibility of avatars inward the real world.
While the official plot is still stuff kept under wraps, Dwayne has teased that the fourth film’s big villain could have ties to avatar Jurgen the Brutal. “Cool plot twist well-nigh JURGAN (for those who unprotected it) is he’s an very avatar in the game,” he wrote on Instagram in December 2019. “Meaning – SOMEONE is playing him. But who? That’s the big mystery. In the next JUMANJI we’ll find out just who’s been playing the JURGAN THE BRUTE.” A release stage has not been confirmed or teased yet.
‘Jumanji’ Tint And Crew
Fans have not received much updates given that the COVID-19 pandemic has impacted filming schedules, thus, returning tint and hairdo for Jumanji 4 have not been publicly spoken just yet. It would not be far off to presume that the personnel tint would reprise their avatar roles, though: Dwayne as Bravestone, Karen as Ruby, Kevin as Mouse, and Jack as Oberon. With Dwayne’s previous tease, one would presume that Jurgen two-face Rory McCann will moreover reprise his role. Alex, Madison, Ser’Darius, and Morgan would moreover likely reprise their roles as the human counterparts to their respective avatars.
In an interview with Collider in June, Kevin moreover gave no indication that the existing tint and hairdo would not return. “For us to recreate the Jumanji world and have that success, it’s monumental,” the comedian said. “You don’t walk yonder from that. We have no interest in walking away. It’s well-nigh the timing.” He added, “We’ve all kind of taken on some other projects, so I think when things slow lanugo for us and our commitments are out the way, we’re definitely going to revisit flipside one considering there’s no reason not to.”
