Where to watch Jumanji: The Next Level
Fans of the O.G. Jumanji, released back in 1995, were somewhat sceptical upon the release of 2017’s sequel, Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle. But lo and behold, the refreshed plot and ensemble cast of Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, Jack Black, Kevin Hart and Karen Gillan pleasantly surprised us all.
The sequel-to-the-sequel, Jumanji: The Next Level dropped at the end of last year and is just as star-studded, funny and enjoyable as its predecessor. Johnson, Black, Hart and Gillan (and Nick Jonas) all reprise their original roles, with the welcome additions of Awkwafina, Danny Glover, Danny Devito and Rory McCann (a.k.a. The Hound from Game of Thrones).
We catch up with the gang two years after the events of Welcome to the Jungle, where the former high school buddies plan a reunion over their college Christmas break. When one of them fails to turn up, the group head to his home to check on him, only to find he’s been drawn into Jumanji once more. Soon, they too become sucked into the game and must once again complete a challenging quest in order to escape.
