Last year during Christmas, Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle earned the big buck at the box office and came close to hitting the 1 billion margin with its earning worldwide. Though this year, movies like Aquaman & Mary Poppins Returns took advantage of the Holiday season, Jumanji 2 looks to bag the title once again in 2019 as the project is all set to begin production in early 2019.
A new listings report coming from Production Weekly has revealed that Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle sequel will begin production on January 21. But it looks like the team won’t be returning to Hawaii again to film the project.
Filming is expected to take place in Atlanta, Los Angeles and Canada for around for 4 months and is expected to wrap on April 26.
In an earlier interview, director Jake Kasdan did express his interest to return back to Hawaii to film the sequel project. But it is currently unsure if the team would also be visiting Hawaii as one of the locations.
Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle sequel project does not have an official title assigned yet. Since the 2017 released movie was not a reboot and in fact just another Jumanji adventure, the upcoming movie was dubbed as Jumanji 3. But going by the listing, it’s possible the makers would go with titling it just as ‘Jumanji 2’.
Dwayne Johnson has confirmed he’ll return for the upcoming sequel. Kevin Hart, Jack Black and Karen Gillan are also expected to reprise their roles from the 2017 movie. It’s still unconfirmed if Nick Jonas would appear in Jumanji 2.
Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle sequel will be directed by Jake Kasdan from a script penned by Scott Rosenberg and Jeff Pinkner. Matt Tolmach is producing the movie and Dany Garcia and Hiram Garcia are also attached as executive producers.
The movie will release on December 13, 2019.
