As a kid, I loved the movie “Jumanji.” It was creepy and had an interesting concept that drew me in and was always a favorite. So when I found out that there was going to be a new “Jumanji” film I was excited yet skeptical. I was and still am hopeful that this new movie will modernize the original concept and make “Jumanji” a favorite movie for a whole new generation.

The board game is rediscovered after 20 years but it is quickly set aside because no one plays with board games anymore. Because the game has all kinds of powers, it somehow manages to evolve into a video game, something this generation is more likely to pick up.

Four teens, sent to detention, are cleaning up the basement of their high school when they come across the video game. Theyplug it in, pick their avatars and then get sucked into the tv. The teens quickly discover that their avatars are pretty much the opposite of who they are in real life in a hilarious scene. The movie stars big names like Dwayne Johnson, Karen Gillan, KevinHart, Jack Black and Nick Jonas.

The movie comes to theaters on Dec. 20 and I for one cannot wait to see this action packed, hopefully hilarious film.
