    It’s no secret that the world is a *little* bit of a mess right about now. Yep, it sucks. But here at RetroEnt, we like to provide you with some of the coolest, grooviest, geekiest and entertaining retro news you could ever want (aren’t we cute). This news will hit you right in the nostalgia feels and take you back to a time when it was perfectly acceptable to obsess over a film about a board game. Of course, we’re talking about Jumanji! First released in 1995, the Robin Williams classic took over our lives and made us real-ly want to wrestle with a lion and get lost in the jungle. As you do. Sadly, the world lost another hero when Williams passed away in 2014 – but at least we have the sequel, Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle, to look forward to. Here’s everything you need to know about the upcoming movie…

    What’s it about?

    As a sequel to the 1995 original, Jumanji: Welcome to Jungle will take place a whopping 20 years after the events of the first movie. As times have changed and technology has improved, the classic board game has been transformed into a cool new video game that transports a group of teenagers into the same jungle Alan Parrish got stuck in all those years ago. However, it’s not your everyday video game. The characters become virtual avatars inside the inner workings of the game, and have to play along with the tips and tricks of Jumanji to complete the game and get out alive. *Gulp*

    Who is in it?

    Well, this is where it gets pretty darn exciting! This all-star cast is full of major names that should secure a box-office hit. We’re talking Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson, Jack Black, Kevin Hart, Karen Gillan, Nick Jonas, and more. I mean, that is insane.

    Why all the hype?

    One of the main reasons we’re all so excited about Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle, is because of the success of the first film. It’s no secret that Robin Williams absolutely rocked the 1995 original, and most of us can’t wait to see what it’ll be like with a modern twist. Alongside this, the movie was actually made as a tribute to Williams himself, which makes us pretty darn emosh (pass us the tissues, please). As if this wasn’t enough, the all-star cast has got everyone talking. The Rock and Kevin Hart? You really can’t go wrong…

    When it is out?

    Luckily, we don’t have to wait too long to take a trip back to the Jungle. Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle is set to be released on December 20, 2017 – so if you haven’t written your Christmas list to Santa just yet, you might want to ask for some theater tickets. However, if you can’t wait until then, check out the epic trailer…
