Not a lot is currently known about the upcoming Jumanji 3, but Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle was a surprise hit with fans. Despite a hiatus since 1995, Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle killed it at the box office, making nearly $1 billion worldwide. All in all, the film earned $40m domestically and $557m international for a total of $962m against a reported budget of $90m.
In addition to the primary quartet returning to reprise their roles, the Jumanji threequel will feature the addition of Awkwafina (Crazy Rich Asian), Danny DeVito (Always Sunny), and Danny Glover (Gone Fishin') in undisclosed roles.
"From Awkwafina to Danny DeVito to now one of my action heroes, Danny Glover — it’s been awesome having so many actors and OG legends raise their hands wanting to come and play in our Jumanji universe," franchise star Dwayne Johnson told The Hollywood Reporter. "'Who turns into who?' will always be the fun magic sauce for our audience."
Jake Kasdan will return to direct the film based on a script from Jeff Pinkner and Scott Rosenberg.
Jumanji 3 is due out in theaters December 13th.
