Dwanye Johnson confirms sequel after Jumanji becomes highest grossing Sony film ever

Dwayne Johnson posted the following video on Instagram announcing the news, which includes they are actively working on a sequel that was previously announced.

One hundred and twelve days after it hit screens on 19 December in the U.S., adventure comedy Jumanji: Welcome To The Jungle has become Sony's highest earning domestic film in the studio's box office history with a cumulative gross of $403,714,915 on 10 April.

My guess would be that we can expect a Jumanji sequel sometime around 2020 and with this film doing so well in A Christmas/New Year's release timeslot, I expect Sony will stick to that for the sequel as well.

Thank you to all of the fans that went out and supported this movie....

My #1 goal is always giving the audience what they want and always sending ya home happy.

It should be noted that Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle is also the highest-grossing movie ever released for Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson, Kevin Hart, and Jack Black.

The runaway hit was directed by Jake Kasdan, and produced by Matt Tolmach and William Teitler. With the primary writing team of Rosenberg and Pinkner back in place, prospects seem hopeful that the charm of Welcome to the Jungle will be replicated, all while maintaining the film's apparent indifference to setting up things like sequels and spinoffs, which was part of its appeal.
