Kevin Hart has some great news for the fans looking forward to the long-awaited Jumanji 4. He has recently confirmed that he has discussed the sequel ideas with Dwayne Johnson and that he is considering his return for Jumanji 4. This is exciting news for all the Jumanji fans who love seeing the group of friends transported into video game characters. While talking to Variety recently at the Oscars red carpet event, Hart stated that the ideas for the film are rolling. Let us see what we can expect from Jumanji 4, including its release date, cast, and plot.
Jumanji 4: Release Date
The previous two franchise movies – Welcome to the Jungle and The Next Level, were released on December 20, 2017, and December 13, 2019, respectively. Hence, it is safe to assume that movies of the Jumanji series often enjoy a December release as it works wonders for the film at the box office.
We expect a similar release date for the upcoming sequel. We know that the makers are discussing the ideas for Jumanji 4. Therefore, the release of the movie this year sounds tough. The filming of the film has yet to start! So, December 2024 is a promising release date for Jumanji 4 if the franchise wants to maintain its festive release window. We will, of course, update you on the official release date as soon as it is announced.
Dwayne Johnson, Kevin Hart, Karen Gillan, and Jack Black played a massive role in the success of Jumanji. Therefore, we expect them to return for Jumanji 4. However, the cast of the movie is not officially confirmed.
We know that Kevin Hart has talked to Dwayne Johnson about Jumanji 4. However, he did not reveal whether Johnson is interested in participating in the fourth movie. But at the same time, it will not be very tough to convince all the original actors to return for Jumanji 4.
Other potential cast members of Jumanji 4 include the following names:
- Alex Wolff
- Madison Iseman
- Ser’Darius Blain
- Morgan Turner
- Danny DeVito
- Danny Glover
- Nick Jonas
- Colin Hanks
However, this is not the official list. It is only the speculated list of the cast that we are expecting in Jumanji 4.
What To Expect In Jumanji 4?
The movie will likely continue the original concept of the movie. The real-world main characters of the movie will take control of different avatars in the game world. However, we are still determining whether the game world for Jumanji 4 will be the video game or the original Jumanji board game. Irrespective of the medium, we know that the character will enter a game world like any other franchise movie!
Before making more speculation about the upcoming film, we want to take you back to the post-credit scene of Jumanji 3. In that scene, we saw that a heater repairman discovered the video game in Spencer’s basement. Soon after that, we could see a group of ostriches running down the road. Therefore, in the movie, we might see animals and people from the gaming world entering the real world. At least, that is what the post-credit scene is about. If so, Jumanji 4 will pull its concept from the original movie.
Hart has indicated that, currently, everyone is working on new ideas for Jumanji 4. It would be interesting to see which idea will make it to create the plot of the next movie.
Regardless of the case, Jumanji 4 will again be a big movie for the franchise. If you haven’t watched the previous film, we recommend you stream it. The Next Level is available on Amazon, and you can watch Welcome to the Jungle on Amazon Prime. We will update this post as soon as there is official information about the movie. So, stay tuned with us!
