Jumanji: The Next Level is an action/adventure movie that was released on December 13th, 2019. It is a direct sequel to "Welcome to the Jungle". It is the 3rd Jumanji movie overall, but 4th if Zathura: A Space Adventure is considered.
Despite the events of the previous film, the four Brantford High School friends appear to have grown distant from each other. In his solitude, Spencer Gilpin appeared to have rediscovered the Jumanji video game, seemingly broken down from the four destroying the game console it was originally plugged into. After attempting to fix the game, he seemed to have been pulled back into the realm of Jumanji. Following Spencer’s disappearance, his three friends, Anthony Johnson, Martha Kaply and Bethany Walker figure out that he played the Jumanji video game again, reluctantly playing too in order to bring him back. This time Eddie Gilpin Spencer's grandfather now took on the form of Dr. Smolder Bravestone instead of Spencer, his friend Milo Walker was now Franklin "Mouse" Finbar instead of Fridge, who had now become Shelly Oberon, leaving Martha as Ruby Roundhouse once more while Bethany has become a horse.
After the release of the previous film "Welcome to the Jungle", Dwayne Johnson, Jack Black, and Nick Jonas had discussed in interviews what a possible Jumanji sequel would be about, including the possibility of the film exploring the origins of the titular game. Karen Gillan had also said that the alternate ending for Welcome to the Jungle would have left the door open for another movie.
In February 2018, it was announced that Kasdan would direct the sequel, with Rosenberg and Pinkner again writing the script and Johnson, Hart, Black, and Gillan reprising their roles.
On February 22, 2019, Black confirmed the new film as being a fourth Jumanji film because of Zathura: A Space Adventure (2005) serving as the second film and sharing continuity with the other films of the series, with Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle serving as the third film. In July 2019, the film's title was revealed as "The Next Level".
- This is the first Jumanji film to include the new 2019 MPA logo in the end credits.
