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.

Guardians-of-the-Galaxy
