In a newly released clip from the Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle Blu-ray, Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson reflects on the legacy of the franchise.
Johnson speaks briefly about the original film and the "25 plus years" it has been that since it was released. He goes on to talk about how there was a question of how the game would "evolve," per Decider.
His Welcome to the Jungle co-star Kevin Hart also speaks in the clip, talking about how the decision to update Jumanji to be a video game rather than a board game "helped modernize it."
Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle, which is now available to own digitally and comes out on in 4K, Blu-ray, and DVD format on March 20th, has been a massive hit.
To date, the film has earned over $930 million worldwide on a budget of somewhere between $90 to $110 million.
It had been announced that a sequel is in the works with Johnson and Hart, as well as Karen Gillan and Jack Black, scheduled to reprise their roles. Jake Kasdan, the director, is also on board for the sequel as well.
Johnson has several more projects on the way, one of which is Skyscraper, an action film that he recently revealed a poster for.
In the epic poster, Johnson's character from the film can be seen jumping from a crane to a burning building while a jarringly sprawling cityscape lays out below him. In the film, Johnson will play Will Ford, "a former FBI Hostage Rescue Team leader, who now assesses security for skyscrapers."
