It's no surprise that there's another Jumanji sequel headed our way.
Variety recently reported Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle had racked in more than $403 million at the domestic box office and $950 million worldwide, making it Sony’s highest-grossing movie of all time. The film’s star Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson shared the news via Instagram on Wednesday, in addition to confirming Jumanji’s third installment.
“You guys officially made Jumanji Sony’s biggest domestic movie ever. Ever. Beating Spiderman and 007 and all these other amazing movies over the decades,” he said in a video. “[…] I just want to say thank you guys so much from the bottom of my heart. I always have one goal with these movies: It’s always giving the audiences what they want. […] As producer of Jumanji, we are working on the sequel right now. And speaking of giving the audience what they want, I’m going to go ahead and kill Kevin Hart’s character off for good.”
Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle hit U.S. theaters in December 2017, and went on to secure the top spot at the box office for four weeks. Johnson also pointed out the Jumanji reboot was the first December wide release to earn a No. 1 weekend in February since Titanic.
Back in February, Sony Pictures confirmed another Jumanji sequel was in the works. Scott Rosenberg and Jeff Pinkner have been tapped to write the script, while Johnson and Hart will reprise their Welcome to the Jungle roles alongside Jack Black and Karen Gillan.
