Get Ready for Jumanji 4: What to Expect from the Highly Anticipated Sequel! Following the success of Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle and Jumanji: The Next Level, fans can expect another thrilling adventure in the Jumanji universe. The mid-credits scene of The Next Level hints at another game, fueling excitement for Jumanji 4. Although still in early development, Sony Pictures seems determined to continue the franchise with the return of Dwayne Johnson, Kevin Hart, Jack Black, and Karen Gillan. Stay tuned for more updates on this exciting upcoming movie!
Joe Johnston directed the original Jumanji movie, where Robin Williams played the lead character, Alan Parrish. The story followed Alan as he gets transported into a dangerous jungle world through a mysterious board game. In Jake Kasdan’s Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle, the concept was updated with Jumanji becoming a video game. These two movies, Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle and Jumanji: The Next Level, achieved great success for Sony Pictures due to their talented casts and fresh take on the beloved 1990s classic. Combining action, comedy, and heartfelt moments, these films performed exceptionally well at the box office, ensuring the arrival of Jumanji 4.
Jumanji 4: Latest News
The production of Jumanji 4 has been delayed, and producer Hiram Garcia shed some light on the matter. He explained that Dwayne Johnson and director Jake Kasdan have been occupied with their work on the holiday adventure movie Red One. Once Red One is completed, Kasdan will shift his focus to Jumanji 4. Garcia also hinted at an exciting concept for the upcoming film, building anticipation for what’s in store for the next Jumanji installment.
Jumanji 4 Is Confirmed
After the release of Jumanji: The Next Level, indications were given about the development of Jumanji 4. Dwayne Johnson hinted at a connection between the third and fourth movies, and Jake Kasdan confirmed the ongoing development in March 2020. Producer Hiram Garcia later disclosed that production for Jumanji 4 would commence after the completion of Jake Kasdan and Dwayne Johnson’s current project, Red One. These confirmations have further fueled the anticipation for the upcoming installment in the Jumanji series.
Jumanji 4: Release Date
Currently, there is no official release date or specific details regarding the filming schedule for the next Jumanji movie. The production timeline and release date for Jumanji 4 have not been announced or confirmed at this time.
The previous two Jumanji movies, Welcome to the Jungle and The Next Level, were both released in December (December 20, 2017, and December 13, 2019, respectively). Given the success of these December releases, it is reasonable to assume that the next Jumanji movie could also be released around the same time.
It is possible that the release of the new Jumanji movie could be pushed to December 2024 in order to maintain the tradition of a festive release window. However, without official confirmation, it is difficult to determine the exact release date for the upcoming Jumanji film.
As Kevin Hart mentioned in June 2021 and Karen Gillan confirmed in August 2022, the delay in the production of the next Jumanji movie is primarily due to the busy schedules of the cast members. Coordinating the availability of all the actors can be challenging. However, despite the wait, the cast is enthusiastic about working on another Jumanji film and is looking forward to it.
Who’s coming back for Jumanji 4?
The success of the new Jumanji movies can be attributed in large part to the performances of Dwayne Johnson, Karen Gillan, Kevin Hart, and Jack Black. It would be very surprising if these actors did not return to portray their in-game Jumanji characters in the next movie.
The ending of The Next Level suggests that their roles might not be as prominent, but it’s difficult to imagine a sequel without their involvement.
We don’t think it will be difficult to convince the original stars to come back. Gillan expressed her belief that they will make another movie and hopes for its continuation because it’s a lot of fun.
Alex Wolff, Madison Iseman, Ser’Darius Blain, and Morgan Turner will be joining the cast as the unlucky players once again. There is a possibility that Danny DeVito could also return as Spencer’s grandfather Eddie.
Danny Glover could potentially reprise his role as Eddie’s friend Milo, but at the end of “The Next Level,” he decides to remain in the game as Cyclone, the flying horse.
It is also highly likely that Nick Jonas will return as Jefferson ‘Seaplane’ McDonough and Awkwafina will reprise her role as Ming Fleetfoot, the Jumanji avatars. Additionally, Colin Hanks is expected to return as Alex Vreeke.
It is possible that Bebe Neuwirth could return as Nora Shepherd in the next Jumanji movie. She made a cameo appearance at the end of The Next Level, reprising her role from the original film. Fans would certainly love to see her back for another game.
