Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle may be one of the most authentic video gaming movie I’ve ever seen. Match that with a weird Breakfast Club/Indiana Jones vibe and the result is two hours of pure, high energy fun.
The Blu-ray release adds the original Jumanji (and its boatload of features) to th mix.
The new take on Jumanji – Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle – ages up the kids who are about to play the game of their lives – they’re now teens in high school forced together by detention (shades of The Breakfast Club!).
When they are given the task of cleaning out the school’s basement, they stumble onto an old video game called Jumanji and get sucked into it as the avatars they’d chosen to play – but the avatars are not exactly what they thought they’d be (above)…
Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle opens on December 20th.
