Kevin Hart has confirmed the sequel to Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle will start filming in a mere few months.
The 39-year-old actor and comedian revealed he will be working on the follow-up to last years blockbuster, in which he starred alongside Dwayne Johnson, Jack Black and Karen Gillan from January next year.
We start shooting at the end of January. We almost made a billion dollars with the first one, so to have the opportunity to repeat that same level of success is beyond exciting, he told Variety.
To get that whole crew back is exciting. Im pumped up about it.
Thats right the gang is back together.
The whole shebang was a sequel to late, great Robin Williams 1995 epic with this trips director Jake Kasdan admitting its a challenge to make sure they take the story somewhere special.
He previously said: Part of the challenge of figuring out how [the emotional centre of the film] continues is to keep that alive in ways that feel earned … like a true kind of continuation in this story.
Screenwriters Scott Rosenberg and Jeff Pinkner are also on board to put together the story, which all started with Robins character Alan Parrish – a man who had been trapped
inside the titular board game for decades and is freed by two siblings when they decide to take on the magical jungle-themed game for themselves.
However, just to make it extra ~modern~ last years version saw the board turned into a video game when a group of teenagers become trapped inside as the games characters, they must escape and return home.

You know, without losing all of their lives.
Easy task, non?
