Jumanji 2’s cast just keeps getting bigger. The Rock (Fast & Furious 7) posted an image to Instagram today, showing off his and pop star Nick Jonas’s characters standing in a jungle.
“Officially welcoming my guy Nick Jonas to Jumanji,” The Rock posted. “Great dude, great positive energy, and very talented. He’s gonna kill this role like I kill things with my bare hands. The jungle awaits. The adventure continues. And ironically the one who sings the most on set is Jack Black.”
Jonas also posted the image on his own account, saying the “cast, crew, and creative team are incredible.” He added that he’s “pumped” to be part of the movie, alongside co-stars The Rock, Kevin Hart (Central Intelligence), Jack Black (Goosebumps), and Karen Gillan (Guardians of the Galaxy).
The Rock previously posted another image of Jumanji 2 on his Instagram page. It was our first look at the cast in costume and featured him, Hart, Black, and Gillan. It looks like the movie will be completely different from the original, but The Rock says it’s a continuation of “the awesome Jumanji story,” not a remake.
Jumanji 2 opens in theaters on July 28, 2017. It’s helmed by Jake Kasdan, who’s best known for his directorial work on Bad Teacher, Walk Hard: The Dewey Cox Story, and Orange Country.
