It’s hard to believe that it’s been more than 20 years since the original Jumanji hit theaters — in fact, it’s been so long that they’ve already made an original (how typical Hollywood, right?!).
Earlier today, the first trailer for the remake — which stars Kevin Hart, Dwayne Johnson, Nick Jonas, and Jack Black — hit the Internet. And we’d be lying if we didn’t say the new movie had us feeling all nostalgia for the original, which featured unforgettable (and irreplaceable) performances by the late Robin Williams, Bonnie Hunt, and a very young Kirsten Dunst!
When it was revealed that The Rock was remaking the flick, which he dubbed one of his “all-time faves,” he explained his decision to honor the beloved film, saying that the opportunity to “reimagine their stories in dope new ways to a whole new generation is truly an honor…. We’ll produce and deliver to a whole new generation a title that I love and is one of my all-time faves: There’s games you play for fun…then there’s games that change your life.”
While we eagerly await the debut of the new flick — due in theaters December of this year — we can’t forget about the original so easily!
