Dwayne Johnson’s Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle was released in 2017 and was followed by a sequel, Jumanji: The Next Level in 2019. Now, the producer of the second movie has news about the upcoming instalment.
When asked about the prospect of another sequel in an interview with Collider, producer Hiram Garcia said, “It's going to happen. It's going to happen, for sure. We were just discussing the pitch the other day. We're bringing it into Sony shortly. But that movie's going to happen."
The producer confirms that a third Jumanji movie will happen, but the minds behind the movie are yet to approach Sony. It would be a surprise if Sony does turn down the movie if an offer comes, considering how the previous movies did.
Garcia also adds that the actors are very busy and that getting the timing right would be important and that they have a great pitch for the movie that they would tell Sony and is also probably going to get a script written soon.
In the mid-credit scene of Jumanji: The Next Level, a third movie was hinted and fans have been talking about another sequel and in 2021, rumours even suggested that Ryan Reynolds would be part of the movie.
Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle was the third instalment of the Jumanji franchise, following Jumani in 1995 and Zathura: A Space Adventure in 2005. Welcome to the Jungle was a direct sequel to Jumanji (1995), which was based on the 1981 children's book of the same name by Chris Van Allsburg.
Welcome to the Jungle racked up big money following its global release and also became one of the biggest grossing movies of the year. Jumanji: The Next Level continued the trend in 2019.
