Where the EFF is Bonnie Hunt?

Posted on

The Jumanji trailer is here! And we all have questions. It's only natural.

Welcome to the jungle, I guess?

1. So, what is this Jumanji about?

Columbia Pictures

SO BASICALLY: Some teens are assigned to clean out their school's basement. They find an old video game. They get sucked into the video game and put in the bodies of the characters — Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson, Kevin Hart, Karen Gillan, and Jack Black. These characters are in a jungle. Chaos ensues.

3. Who are those teens?

Columbia Pictures

What we know is that this movie is centered on four teens, played at first by Alex Wolff (Spencer), Madison Iseman (Bethany), Ser'Darius Blain ("Fridge"), and Morgan Turner (Martha).

But what I want to know is: Are these teens at all connected to the kids in the original Jumanji movie? Is Kirsten Dunst gonna show up in aging makeup playing a mom? Who are you, children??? Why are we here? Do any of your parents own a shoe factory?


4. Are we actually going to spend any quality time with these teens?

Columbia Pictures

Apparently, it depends how you define quality time. According to the trailer, TECHNICALLY the teen characters will be present throughout — though the actors playing the teens in their usual bodies might not get that much screentime. That sounds confusing. BUT BASICALLY: Once the teens get sucked into the video game, they're played by Johnson, Hart, Gillan, and Black.
