Remember Jumanji? Of course you do. What a stupid question.
You probably also know that Jumanji is due a remake, starring The Rock and Karen Gillan. Well, recently The Wrap uncovered some intriguing news.
In the remake ‘Jumanji’ isn’t a board game.
It’s a video game console.
This is amazing.
Apparently four teenagers discover the SNES-era console at school during detention and — of course — start playing it, which transports them into alter-ego characters. Sucks for the guy who had to be Kevin Hart.
This makes total sense. Plays perfectly into the hands of people like me, who are nostalgic about the original movie but also nostalgic about 16-bit era consoles.
It’s genius. Pure genius.
Also it has The Rock.
