In the Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle and Jumanji: The Next Level, we see the actors Dwayne Johnson, Kevin Hart, Jack Black, and Karen Gillan, so it is hard to see the next movies without them which they’ve delivered such strong performances. The Next Level film, we see new actors such as Awkwafina, Danny Devito, and Danny Glover.
Dawyne Johnson plays the role of Dr. Xander “Smolder” Bravestone, an archaeologist and explorer, the avatar of Spencer Gilpin played by Alex Wolff. The film The Next Level, Dr. Bravestone was Eddie’s avatar, Spencer’s grandfather played by Danny Devito.

Lamorne Morris, and Bebe Neurwith might return as well. Bebe Neurwith appeared in the 1995 Jumanji movie playing the role of Nora,

Jumanji 4 Release date
If you follow the pattern of the movie sequels Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle and Jumanji: The Next Level, the release date is two years apart. Welcome to the Jungle was released on December 20, 2017 and The Next Level was released on December 13, 2019. So, it is safe to assume that we might see the movie by the end of the year, December 2021.
There’s no exact date as to the release of the movie sequel. Yet, according to the filmmaker Jake Kasdan that they talked about it. The movie release date has yet to be confirmed.
Things to know about Jumanji 4
If you’re wondering why it’s the 4th installment, the first Jumanji movie is the 1995 Jumanji starring Robin Williams. Though, the filmmaker Jake Kasdan refers to the upcoming movie sequel as Jumanji 3.
There’s no trailer yet for Jumanji 4 but you can check out the credit scene of Jumanji: The Next Level to get a hint of what you might see in the upcoming movie.
You could see in the credit scene that the repair guy reaches to touch the video game equipment, we hear the familiar Jumanji drums sound, and then a herd of ostriches are seen racing in front of the diner where the real world heroes are eating. If the film follows the pattern in the 1995 Jumanji film then the core characters must do something to beat the game and reverse everything.
Just a recap of the 1995 film of Jumanji starring Robin Williams, the world of Jumanji came to the real world releasing jungle based hazards. It was up to the board players to beat and reverse the game.
With this story pattern applied to Jumanji 4 would be a great idea. Not only would it be fun to watch but it will also show the real world characters a chance to shine to deal Jumanji on their own.
It is likely that the director and cinematographer (Jake Kasdan and Gyula Pados, respectively) will be back. The story for the next movie is in development.
