Jumanji: Dwayne Johnson pals around with costars in set video

Posted on

Not even a little rain could dampen the fun Dwayne Johnson and his costars seem to be having on the set of Jumanji.

Johnson shared a new video from the set to his Instagram on Sunday, showing the cast and crew in good spirits (despite needing some umbrellas) on the film’s Hawaii set.

“We’re in the raining #JumanjiJungle baby!” Johnson captioned the video, adding, “Phenomenal first week of shooting with my extremely talented and funny co-stars [Kevin Hart], [Karen Gillan] and our resident rock and roller Jack Black!”

The video is the latest update Johnson has sent from the set. On Friday, he revealed that Alex Wolff, Madison Iseman, Morgan Turner, and Ser’Darius Blain are joining the cast. It’s been reported that those four actors will portray teens playing a Jumanji game, controlling “avatars” of the characters played by Johnson, Hart, Gillan, and Black.

The cast has not commented on that speculation, but both Johnson and Gillan have said there will be an explanation in the film for why she’s wearing what she described as “child sized clothes” and what he compared to Tomb Raider heroine Lara Croft.

Directed by Jason Kasdan and billed by Johnson as a “continuation” of the 1995 film of the same name that starred Robin Williams, Jumanji will swing into theaters on July 28, 2017. Watch the latest set video below.
