Remember Jumanji? Of course you do, the 1995 Robin Williams fantasy film about a magical, dangerous board game discovered by two unsuspecting modern day teens is a childhood classic for Millennials. Well, 22 years later they're making a new one! Kevin Hart is in it, and he shared the first photo from the set.

Hart said...

The chemistry & energy of our cast & crew was beyond amazing!!! This movie is going to be dope as hell...

However, if you're concerned that this movie's dope-ness will erase the original's legacy, Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson has you covered. Johnson is starring alongside Hart and Jack Black, and he posted a pic on Instagram explaining how this version of Jumanji is actually an extension of the original story, not a remake.

...for the record we are NOT making a reboot, but rather a continuation of the awesome JUMANJI story...

It better be different, because they've got some very big shoes to fill. โ€‹#RIP
