The 3rd installment in the franchise “Jumanji: Next Level” ended with a major cliffhanger. Hence the fans got hopeful that Jumanji 4 will happen and they were indeed right because Jumanji 4 is reportedly in its pre-production phase but the details about the film are still kept under wraps. So, there is very little known about the upcoming film. However, after doing our research from credible resources we have summed up all the details about Jumanji 4’s potential release date, cast, plot, and even the rumors! So, without any further delay let’s begin!
The past 2 films which came in the last decade have been quite successful for Sony Pictures and the 4th installment is expected to do much better than its predecessors because now the hype of the franchise is unmatched! There was just a gap of 2 years between the 2nd and 3rd parts of the film and as 2021 has almost finished, fans got discouraged into thinking that Jumanji 4 might not ever happen. And if you are one of those fans then nothing to fret about because the post-credits scenes of Jumanji: The Next Level clearly hinted at the bright future of the franchise.
Moreover, the delay in the production is most likely because of the difficulties caused by the pandemic and also the busy schedule of actors. When Karen Gillan was asked about Jumanji 4’s production, the actor had no clue of its production. This was alarming news for the fans but again the actors are not allowed to reveal any confidential information in interviews so she might be bluffing!
Jumanji 4 Release Date
There is no official release date for Jumanji 4 so far and the title itself is not confirmed. The fans are calling it Jumanji 4 unanimously. Hence we are helpful that the series will get its release date along with the proper title. When will that happen? It is hard to predict this because of the uncertainties caused by Covid-19.
But as mentioned earlier there was a gap of 2 years between the past 2 installments and if Sony Pictures keeps up with the same pace then expect the film to release in December of 2021! However, this date does not seem possible because the movie is still in its early stages. So, the release date can stretch till 2022 or 2024 too.
But these are just our assumptions; Jumanji 4 can premiere even earlier or later than the projected month (or year)!
The filmmakers have not revealed the official line-up for the cast of Jumanji 4 yet but we are confident that most of the main cast will reprise their old respective roles. Why? Because the story will be continued in the 4th installation plus without the main actors the film will lose most of its fan following.
So, this means you can expect the following actors in Jumanji 4; Dwayne Johnson as Bravestone, Karen Gillan as Ruby Roundhouse, Kevin Hart as Franklin “Mouse” Finbar, and Jack Black as Professor Sheldon “Shelly” Oberon.
Other potential cast members for Jumanji 4 are:
- Nick Jonas as Seaplane McDonough
- Colin Hanks as Alex
- Alex Wolff as Spencer Gilpin
- Ser’Darius Blain as Anthony “Fridge” Johnson
- Morgan Turner as Martha Kaply
- Madison Iseman as Bethany Walker
All of the above characters have played key roles in the previous 2 movies so their chances of appearing in the 4th movie are also very high. Other supporting actors and cameo appearances might not feature in Jumanji 4 because of the twisted ending of the 3rd installment.
But again as the actors have not confirmed their roles in the upcoming film we can’t say anything promising. So, it will be better to wait for Sony Pictures to make the official announcements.
After Jumanji: The Next Level’s release Kasdan, the director of the movie revealed that the villain Jurgen The Brutal will feature as an avatar in the next film. This gave away a major part of the plot that the villain will now become more troublesome!
The teenagers escaped the video game and successfully entered the real world in the finale of Jumanji 3. So, now the writers will have to come up with something interesting to keep the story going. As we don’t have the official plot synopsis of the movie yet we can just predict the possible storylines.
There is one more way in which the 4th installment can progress; along with the teenagers, some of the avatars might also have escaped the game into the real world. What consequences will this have on the human world? Guess we’ll have to wait until the movie premieres!
Jumanji 4 Trailer
In mid-2020 the film said to be in its pre-production phase and then the sudden outbreak of Covid-19 worsened the situation. Hence no such major progress has happened due to which there is no available footage from Jumanji 4. So it seems like we’ll have to wait for a long time to catch a glimpse of our favorite jungle franchise!
