Sony’s presentation at CinemaCon 2018 in Caesar’s Palace Las Vegas, Nevada, United States, confirmed that Dwayne Johnson and the gang of “Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle” will be back in time for Christmas.
Sony Motion Pictures chairman Tom Rothman also acknowledged the movie will be going up against stiff competition, with “Star Wars: Episode IX” also making its debut in the same month, reports Variety.
CinemaCon also tweeted about the announcement.
Johnson first hinted at a sequel through an Instagram video he posted on April 12, to thank fans for making “Jumanji” Sony’s highest-earning movie to date. The film has already earned almost $1 billion internationally, as of this writing.
