Popular for his stints in Jumanji, Hollywood A-lister Dwayne Johnson has had movie aficionados awaiting the announcement of a third installment for a long time. Funnily, the second part Jumanji: The Next Level, has not even been released yet. But his fans seem to be losing patience, wondering whether the upcoming film will be the end of the Jumanji franchise or they will be treated to another one too. In good news, The Rock has finally let the cat out of the bag as he spoke frankly about the possibility of a third part and opened up about what the team’s decision depends on.
Johnson revealed that the making of a third film will be contingent on the audiences’ reaction to Jumanji: The Next Level, which will hit cinema screens in beginning December this year. Speaking about the same, Johnson said, "That depends on the audience. When we made the first one, we thought that the concept was unique and we will see what happens. We never thought of making part two. So, same thing applies here too. We will keep our eyes open and heads to the ground and see how the second part fares."
Jumanji, a film adaptation of Chris Van Allsburg's book by the same name, tells the tale of a young Alan Parrish getting trapped in a board game. It first headed to the silver screen in 1995, with Robin Williams playing the lead. From getting lost in the transit, tackling monkeys and battling other odds, the film centres on how Parrish gets stuck in the board game and comes back as an adult, and how he has to finish the game with his friends to escape the fate he called upon himself by rolling the dice. In 2017, Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle released. It features a group of high school students, who get lost in the jungle after laying their hands on a video game console featuring a version of the game Jumanji. Cinemagoers are in for yet another adventurous ride with Jumanji: The Next Level.
