Jumanji: Next Level picks up where Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle left off with Dwayne Johnson, Karen Gillan, Kevin Hart, and Jack Black. Spencer (Alex Wolff), finds real life lack luster and leaves boring reality for the fantastical world of Jumanji. Pals Martha, Fridge, and Bethany re-enter the game to bring him home.
There are some level boosts, new skills, and bonus characters in this sequel including Spencer’s grandpa, Danny Devito, who all accidentally gets mixed up in the chaos that is Jumanji. If you liked this first movie, you should be a fan of the sequel. The animal action, smolder, and cake jokes come back and in classic “Rock” form, Dwayne Johnson has to use his abundant muscles to keep something ridiculous from flying away or dropping.
Maria Elena Castro added, “The first Jumanji movie is more exciting and it had more humor.” Despite Castro’s love for the original, Jumanji is a family favorite perfect for watching during vacation.
