Default 2021 Jumanji Next Film (Star Cast, Story, Latest News)



Latest Update: Next Part will be expecting in 2021 ending or Mid 2022

'Jumanji' is the second, third, or fourth film (depending on if you're counting 'Jumanji' (1995) and or 'Zathura: A space Adventure (2005)) in the surprisingly successful franchise that's somehow managed to rival Star Wars and Marvel in terms of popularity and box-office success. It's the same as its immediate predecessor in two ways: firstly, the narratives are pretty much identical and, secondly, they're both fast-moving, fantastically entertaining and ferociously fun. Seriously, it's incredible that the last one worked, but the fact that this one is just as good is somehow even more surprising. While the MacGuffin driven plot is pretty generic, and the villain is extremely basic and unmemorable, it sort of gets away with it given its 'video-game nature' and, more importantly, the strength of its characters. It would be easy to dismiss the writing here and claim that its success comes from its spectacle, but that's just simply not the case. The film works because the characters are so well written and performed.

They all have great chemistry, which creates the majority of the fun. This time around, the body-swapping concept is dialled-up a bit, too, which stops it from feeling like it's retreading old ground and allows the excellent actors to experiment even more. It's hard to believe that the 'real-world' actors barely have any scenes at all, which highlights how much the concept works. The big stars completely disappear and fully manage to channel their 'real life' counterparts; this just shows how good their performances are. The movie isn't deep, but it's not trying to be and sometimes that's great. It sets out to entertain its audience for two hours and it achieves that with ease. It's an effortlessly fun flick with a winning formula. I'm definitely looking forward to seeing where this series goes in its third outing (or is it the fourth? No, wait... the fifth?). 7/10

Dwayne Douglas Johnson, also known as The Rock, was born on May 2, 1972 in Hayward, California. He is the son of Ata Johnson (born Feagaimaleata Fitisemanu Maivia) and professional wrestler Rocky Johnson (born Wayde Douglas Bowles). His father, from Amherst, Nova Scotia, Canada, is black (of Black Nova Scotian descent), and his mother is of Samoan background (her own father was Peter Fanene Maivia, also a professional wrestler). While growing up, Dwayne traveled around a lot with his parents and watched his father perform in the ring. During his high school years, Dwayne began playing football and he soon received a full scholarship from the University of Miami, where he had tremendous success as a football player. In 1995, Dwayne suffered a back injury which cost him a place in the NFL. He then signed a three-year deal with the Canadian League but left after a year to pursue a career in wrestling.

He made his wrestling debut in the USWA under the name Flex Kavanah where he won the tag team championship with Brett Sawyer. In 1996, Dwayne joined the WWE and became Rocky Maivia where he joined a group known as "The Nation of Domination" and turned heel. Rocky eventually took over leadership of the "Nation" and began taking the persona of The Rock. After the "Nation" split, The Rock joined another elite group of wrestlers known as the "Corporation" and began a memorable feud with Steve Austin. Soon the Rock was kicked out of the "Corporation". He turned face and became known as "The Peoples Champion". In 2000, the Rock took time off from WWE to film his appearance in The Mummy Returns (2001). He returned in 2001 during the WCW/ECW invasion where he joined a team of WWE wrestlers at The Scorpion King (2002), a prequel to The Mummy Returns (2001).
