Stars of 'Jumanji' sequel pay tribute to Robin Williams

20 June 2017

While speaking with The Hollywood Reporter, one of the movie's stars, Jack Black, explained how the sequel will honour Robin Williams, who played Alan Parrish in the first movie. And now that we know the aforementioned jungle is the selfsame place Williams' Alan Parrish was trapped for decades, Jack Black has stepped up to offer more details.

"That's why we were able to go into the jungles of Jumanji", said Black. "It's like he's there helping us without actually being there". Sony's upcoming addition to the live-action Jumanji franchise has drawn more than its fair share of criticism from longstanding fans of the property, but that comes with the territory - given the beloved nature of the 1990s movie adaptation, which many believe still holds up to this day.

Since January 13, 2017, it had 0 insider purchases, and 10 sales for $21.13 million activity. (NYSE:JPM) on Friday, January 13. On average, equities analysts forecast that J P Morgan Chase & Co will post $6.66 EPS for the current fiscal year. (NYSE:JPM).

Black also revealed the new movie will be quite different from the 1995 version.

The original movie, directed by Joe Johnston, featured Williams as the aforementioned character who, as a teen, became trapped inside the magical, titular board game until a pair of curious children (Kirsten Dunst, Bradley Pierce) roll the dice and unwittingly set him (and the game's beastly kingdom of risky animals) free some 26 years later. They have to survive Jumanji's risky challenges in order to beat the game and return to the real world, or else be trapped in the jungle Alan Parrish escaped years earlier. MovieWeb explained back in March that four teenagers find a cursed video game version of Jumanji in their high school basement and get sucked into the Jumanji jungle as adult avatars, hence the sequel's name Welcome to the Jungle. Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle stars Dwayne Johnson, Kevin Hart, Jack Black and Karen Gillan and will be in theaters in time for Christmas.
