The New Trailer For The "Jumanji" Reboot Is Self-Aware AF And I'm Not Even Mad At It

"Who plays board games anymore?"

Posted on

Look, I get it...when people see a reboot of their childhood fave, their first instinct is to angrily compare it to the original.

*Sinéad O'Connor's "Nothing Compares 2U" plays softly in the distance.*

However, with the Jumanji reimagining, they decided to flip the script on us just enough to let it stand on its own and honestly...it looks insanely fun.

In case you missed this first trailer, the basic gist is that a group of High Schoolers in detention find Jumanji in the form of an old school video game while cleaning a backroom, and are transported into the jungle world after they pick their avatars.

Switching out the board game for a video game and the real world for the ~world of the game~ is REALLY COOL, OK? I JUST LIKE IT.

And today we got our SECOND official trailer for the reboot, because the movie gods are good.

The second trailer gives us a little more insight into how the rules of the world will work, and continues to look promising AF.

Like, we're going to get to see Dwayne "The Scorpion King of my Heart" Johnson act like a neurotic, germophobic nerd is trapped inside him.

And Kevin Hart act like a big, mean jock guy.

And Karen Gillan act like she's not a badass action hero.

And Jack Black act like a phone-obsessed It-girl...SERIOUSLY, WHAT MORE COULD YOU WANT IN A FILM?

OH, YOU WANT NICK JONAS? OKAY, HERE HE IS BECAUSE, YES, HE'S ALSO IN THIS.

The four must beat the game to escape, but more importantly, SURVIVE with only three lives.
