Dwayne Johnson: Nick Jonas Jumanji photo released on social media
Dwayne Johnson has some more company in the jungle.
On Tuesday, Johnson shared a first look at Jonas’ character in the upcoming Jumanji film. The Furious 7 star has already shared many, many videos and pictures from the set, but this is the first glimpse of the singer.
“Officially welcoming my guy @Nick Jonas to #Jumanji. Great dude, great positive energy and very talented. He’s gonna kill this role like I kill things with my bare hands. The jungle awaits. The adventure continues. And ironically the one who sings the most on set is Jack Black. #OnLocation #Hawaii #WelcomeToTheFamilyNick #Jumanji,” Johnson wrote.
There’s no word yet on who Jonas will play, but he seems pumped. In his own Instagram post, Jonas wrote, “DJ and I looking tough. JUMANJI It’s going down… This cast, crew and creative team are incredible. So pumped to be alongside @therock @kevinhart4real @jackblack @karengillanofficial in this epic adventure. The journey continues. #hawaii #jumanji.”
Johnson has dubbed the new film as a “continuation” of the original Jumanji, which starred Robin Williams, and not a reboot. It has been reported that the film will find four teens playing a game of Jumanji and controlling “avatar” characters played by Johnson, Kevin Hart, Jack Black, and Karen Gillan.
Jumanji, which is being directed by Jake Kasdan, rolls into theaters on July 28, 2017.
