Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle sequel takes on Star Wars as it gains an official release date

Sony's faith in their highest grossing film is strong as they pit it against Disney's behemorth science fiction franchise

Jumanji 2

Get ready to wade back into the jungle next holiday season but watch out for blasters and lightsabers along the way. After confirming previously that the film was underway, a release date for the untitled Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle sequel has been revealed and pits it against a big-time franchise.

Series star and producer Dwayne Johnson took to Twitter to reveal that the Jumanji sequel will hit theaters on December 13, 2019, which will put it out a week before Disney & Lucasfilm’s Star Wars: Episode IX. This date is no surprise as previously Sony Pictures Chairman Tom Rothman promised a sequel for the 2019 holiday season.

Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle was a major hit for Sony, the highest grossing film in the studio’s history, making the call for a sequel a pretty easy one for the higher-ups. Not much is known about this sequel yet other than Johnson’s return as Doctor Smolder Bravestone and the high likelihood that his co-stars Kevin Hart, Karen Gillan, Jack Black and Nick Jonas will return as well.
