I have to be honest, I was not expecting much from the Jumanji reboot, Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle. It seemed like Hollywood’s latest attempt to take advantage of nostalgia. It also seemed like Hollywood’s latest attempt to randomly throw The Rock into a movie.
But you know what? I might have been wrong. The early reviews are coming in, and most of the critics have positive things to say. In fact, it’s difficult to find anything negative right now. Of course, these are just the early social media reactions from a handful of critics, so don’t get too excited yet.
However, it does look like the film has the potential to be a lot of fun…
I know. I’m shocked too. One thing I am happy to see is the amount of love Jack Black is getting. School of Rock is one of my favorite movies, so he will always hold a special place in my heart.
You can view the trailer for Jumanji below. It’s scheduled to hit theaters December 20, 2017.
