Johnson Confirms “Jumanji 3” Work Has Begun

Actor Dwayne Johnson has used his Instagram account to confirm that development of a sequel to last year’s “Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle” is well underway at Sony Pictures.

Last year’s smash hit brought in a whopping $961.9 million worldwide with sequel plans greenlit almost immediately. A few months on, Johnson has now posted a photo on his Instagram account which sees a reunion of the previous film’s creative team including director Jake Kasdan, co-writers Jeff Pinkner and Scott Rosenberg, and producer Matt Tolmach.

Johnson played the Jumanji avatar, Dr. Smolder Bravestone, alongside Karen Gillan, Jack Black, Kevin Hart and Nick Jonas in the film which Sony is eyeing for a December 2019 release.
