Plot details for the sequel are still under wraps. The 2017 hit offered an update on the classic Jumanji yarn, inverting the action from a magical board game that invades the real world to a magical video game that sucks players into its reality. The film focused on four teens (played by Blain, Wolff, Iseman, and Turner) who find themselves transported into the adventure-packed world of Jumanji, where they take on the form of the avatars played by Hart, Johnson, Black, and Gillan, respectively.

The young actors have been keeping busy between trips to the jungle. Wolff starred alongside Toni Collette in Ari Aster‘s stunning horror hit Hereditary last year and is currently in post-production on The Cat and the Moon, the coming-of-age drama that he wrote, directed and starred in.

Blain is currently starring in The CW’s Charmed reboot. Next up, he’ll be seen starring alongside Samuel L. JacksonSebastian Stan, and Ed Harris in The Last Full Measure, as well as Against All Enemies with Kristen Stewart and Anthony Mackie.

Iseman starred in Sony’s Goosebumps sequel Goosebumps: Haunted Halloween last year and recently wrapped on New Line’s untitled Annabelle sequel, which is in post-production ahead of a prime July 3rd release.

Turner was previously seen in Toddy Haynes‘ Wonderstruck and Mildred Pierce mini-series.
