Following the debut of the first photo from the “Jumanji” reboot the other day, numerous eyebrows were raised regarding Karen Gillan’s rather skimpy outfit.
At the time, Dwayne Johnson said “Our dope 90’s vintage costumes will all make sense when our plot’s revealed.” Today, Gillan herself has spoken as to why her clothes are so small, tweeting:

The best guess is that her character has been trapped in the jungle as a child (since the 1990s) and is still using her kids clothing. The film is said to be part-reboot, part-sequel to the previous 1995 film adaptation – will she have become trapped in the game during the first film’s events somehow?
Gillan plays Ruby Roundhouse opposite Dwayne Johnson as Dr. Smolder Bravestone, Jack Black as Professor Shelly Oberon and Kevin Hart as Moose Finbar. The film itself is targeting a Summer 2017 release.
