The Rock Shares Video Of Jumanji Cast Being Blessed By Hawaiian Kahu

Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson is easily the most popular action star in Hollywood today. There isn't much of anything that he doesn't do. One thing he makes sure of doing though, is connecting with his fans through social media, while keeping us up to date on his various projects.

His next endeavor, a sequel to the 1995 film Jumanji is just about to start filming in Hawaii. While some are fearing ruined childhoods, others are rather excited to see The Rocks new adventerous-looking character "The Smoldering Dr. Bravestone."

Johnson recently posted a video to his Instagram account of the entire cast being blessed by a Hawaiian Kahu. You can watch the video and read The Rocks meaningful message below:

Before we embark our #JUMANJI journey here in Hawaii, we gathered our entire cast (here with me are Jack Black, Kevin Hart, our director Jake Kasdan and Karen Gillian) and crew together as our Hawaiian Kahu (priest) Cordell Keka blesses our film with powerful aloha spirit of laughter, enjoyment and love. I often talk about mana (spirit) with you guys and the mana in this room/in this moment was extremely powerful - it can take your breath away and give you goosebumps like crazy. (I was low key ready to run thru a wall in this moment;). Our Kahu eloquently spoke and reminded us that even though our faces are the ones on screen, it takes an AMAZING CREW OF EVERYONE to make this movie work. And when we get tired from long work hours to always remember the joy, laughter and fun our movie will bring to families around the world. So simple, but such a great reminder to keep that perspective of bringing joy and fun to families. Very cool. Thank you Kahu Cordell Keka for this powerful blessing, thank you Hawaii - proud to be back home and THANK YOU in advance to our hard working crew. #JUMANJI #OurHawaiianBlessing #Mana #LetsShoot

The actor will share the screen with Kevin Hart (Central Intelligence), Jack Black (Goosebumps), and Karen Gillan (Guardians of the Galaxy). The Rock has pleaded in previous interviews, that the film will be a sequel to the beloved original with a new, unique story and not a remake.

While it might be quite a task to live up to Robin Williams, the original star of 1995's Jumanji, it sure sounds like The Rock and the rest of the cast are going to give it the best they've got to honor him.


Jumanji is set to release in theaters on July 28, 2017.
