Dwayne Johnson took a break from sparring with Vin Diesel to congratulate his Fast and Furious 8 co-stars for wrapping the movie—and confirm the details of his next project.

"In two weeks I'll reunite with ol' friends Kevin Hart & Jack Black and we have the honor to introduce a whole new generation to the amazing world of #JUMANJI. *(for the record we are NOT making a reboot, but rather a continuation of the awesome JUMANJI story). It's also crazy to me how much me, Kev and Jack look like triplets when we're together. 👶🏽👶🏻👶🏿. Man this is gonna be FUN," Johnson wrote on Instagram.

When Johnson first announced the project, he promised fans he would honor the late Robin Williams, who starred in the iconic role of Alan Parrish.

"The love and respect I have for this man is boundless [...] You have my word, we will honor his name and the character of 'Alan Parrish' will stand alone and be forever immortalized in the world of Jumanji in an earnest and cool way," Johnson said.

The movie is scheduled to hit theaters July 28, 2017.
