Disneyland’s Jungle Cruise attraction has been thrilling visitors since it first opened in 1955. The beloved ride, which simulates a riverboat expedition through Asia, Africa, and South America, expanded to Walt Disney World in 1971, Tokyo Disneyland in 1983, and Hong Kong Disneyland in 2005. Now, following in the tracks of Pirates of the Caribbean, The Haunted Mansion, and Tomorrowland, the popular, pun-fueled ride is getting a big-budget film adaptation.
Whenever a success like Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle comes along, you can be sure studio execs will greenlight a sequel almost immediately. Now fans can get another chance to jump back into the game with Jumanji: The Next Level, which Sony Pictures has released a new trailer for. The sequel brings the gang (Alex Wolff, Madison Iseman, Ser’Darius Blain, and Morgan Turner) back together again when they are forced to enter the game in order to save one of their own. However, this comes with a few complications as some of them are not the avatars they played as when they played the first time.
Now with these new challenges, and some geriatric help, the gang will go on an all new adventure that will take them to unseen locations, meet all new characters, and face greater dangers. Check out the trailer below.
For Your Consideration: Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson is a short and often hilarious take at how Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson became the cultural icon that we all known and love. Author Tres Dean is clearly a fan of the professional wrestler turned actor and it shows in this part biography but mostly mythology of The Rock. The book isn’t an in-depth analysis that will change the way we think about our beloved cultural icon; it’s a straightforward look at just how awesome The Rock is.
