Sony’s untitled third ‘Jumanji’ film will see the return of Nick Jonas. Jonas played the role of Jefferson “Seaplane” McDonough, a young aircraft pilot who was stuck in Jumanji for 20 years.
But, he is not the only one returning. Just this week it was announced Ser’Darius Blain, Alex Wolff, Madison Iseman, and Morgan Turner, the four teen actors from ‘Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle,’ were returning as well.
They join the already returning quartet of actors from the previous film: Dwayne Johnson, Jack Black, Kevin Hart and Karen Gillan. Additionally, Awkwafina, Danny DeVito and Danny Glover are part of the cast as franchise newcomers.
The premise of ‘Welcome to the Jungle’ had a more updated approach to the concept. The classic board game transformed into a video game, and four teens were sucked into its world. Those teens were played by Blain, Wolff, Iseman and Turner. There they became avatars portrayed by Johnson, Black, Hart and Gillan.
Moreover, Jake Kasdan, who directed the feature that made $962 million worldwide, is back to helm the sequel. Also, Kasdan co-wrote the script with returning screenwriters Jeff Pinkner and Scott Rosenberg.
Further, filming is currently underway on the film. Sony Pictures will release the film on December 13.
