Might Be Better Than the First!
#Jumanji’s sequel #TheNextLevel does what few sequels can do... make a movie that’s just as good, if not better than the first. They kept what was fun and built on it, with hilarious changes that left me laughing out loud often. Worth seeing #JumanjiTheNextLevel! pic.twitter.com/fRgDwywta2— Maude Garrett (@maudegarrett) November 20, 2019
Just came out of the #Jumanji The Next Level screening! Super fun, higher stakes, more emotional moments. For me, the first one belonged to @jackblack; this one is @KevinHart4real’s. But everyone was stellar as always. Also, great surprises in store! pic.twitter.com/h2jJTAdvGZ— Rebecca Brayton | WatchMojo (@rebeccabrayton) November 20, 2019
Body swap movies are the greatest - especially a body swap movie with an A+ ensemble like #JumanjiTheNextLevel. The action is fun but I could watch Johnson, Hart, Gillan and Black play with that format for hours. And now with Awkwafina too! Such a great addition to the group! pic.twitter.com/87TM7nyiQ9— Perri Nemiroff (@PNemiroff) November 20, 2019
Kevin Hart's Best
The new #JumanjiTheNextLevel has some huge surprises and introduces a LOT of story that’s fun to explore. The best reason to go back into the game? @KevinHart4real channeling Danny Glover. That joke kept making me laugh long and hard! pic.twitter.com/AtHsaAezSw— Sean O'Connell (@Sean_OConnell) November 20, 2019
