"Jumanji" sequel is totally something new. When the popular adventure movie premieres in cinemas late this year, it will be called "Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle" and will have one important item missing from the plot. The creepy game board with the moving game pieces will not be part of the sequel. A report said that instead of a game board, a 90s-era video game console will transport the players into a make-believe jungle world.

The "Jumanji" sequel will have a group of teens who will discover the game when they are sent to detention. The teens will be sucked into the game and will become avatars which will be played by Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson, Nick Jonas, Karen Gillan and Jack Black, Cosmopolitan reported.

The cast of the "Jumanji" sequel were at the CinemaCon in Las Vegas where they provided fresh information about the movie. The cast said that to compensate for the missing game board, the latest CGI technology was used to create most of the special effects in the film. The memorable rhino stampede from the original movie was preserved for this sequel only this time the animals looked very realistic compared to the original scene.

Expect a lot of action and comedy in "Jumanji" sequel. Huffington Post revealed the plot for the movie saying that the teens who stumbled upon the game while on detention will become avatars which are completely different from their actual personalities. Shy Spencer will become a crazy jock played by The Rock, football quarterback Fridge will become a "tiny Einstein" played by Kevin Hart, the popular girl Bethany will become a "bookworm professor" played by Jack Black and the frail Martha becomes an Amazonian woman played by Karen Gillan.

The "Jumanji" sequel "Welcome to the Jungle" will premiere on the big screen on December 22, 2017. Johnson added that there will be a special tribute to "Jumanji" original star Robin Williams.
