In a brand new Jumanji adventure, the tables are turned as four teenagers are sucked into Jumanji's world - pitted against rhinos, black mambas and an endless variety of jungle traps and puzzles. To survive, they'll play as characters from the game: meek Spencer becomes a brave explorer (Dwayne Johnson); hulky jock Fridge becomes a tiny genius (Kevin Hart); It-girl Bethany becomes a bookworm professor (Jack Black); and unathletic Martha becomes an amazonian warrior (Karen Gillan). To beat the game and return to the real world with their lives, they'll have to start seeing things in an entirely different way.

- Reboot/re-imagining; "an update for the present", per Sony execs. To be based on the book by Chris Van Allsburg. The decision to update the Jumanji property reflects the studio's mandate to increase the focus on films for family audiences (Variety, 08-01-12).
- Dwayne Johnson explained Jumanji is a “continuation” and not a reboot of the 1995 movie, taking place 20-something years after the original film (8/23/16).
