In Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle, Jonas’ Alex had been trapped in the game for decades, hiding out in what had once been home to Robin Williams’ Alan Parrish from the original film. At the end of the movie, Alex was rescued and returned, with the adult version of the character being played by Colin Hanks.

Jonas will join Dwayne Johnson, Kevin Hart, Karen Gillan, Jack Black, Ser’Darius Blain, Alex Wolff, Madison Iseman, and Morgan Turner, who are all reprising their roles from the 2017 movie. Newcomers Danny Glover, Danny DeVito, and Awkwafina will also star.

The sequel to Welcome to the Jungle has been in development for some time, with writers Scott Rosenberg and Jeff Pinkner taking on the script. The director of the previous film, Jake Kasdan (Orange CountyBad Teacher), is also returning to helm the new installment. The film is currently eyeing a Christmas release date later this year.

Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle ended up bringing in around $956 million worldwide, over 3.5x the worldwide gross of the original film from 1995. It even became Sony’s highest-grossing domestic release of all time (just barely passing 2002’s Spider-Man). The film was number one at the box office for four weekends, including three in a row and was the first December wide release to be topliner on a February weekend since Titanic in 1998. Globally, Welcome to the Jungle reached the top in 76 territories and was number one worldwide for four weekends in a row.

Jumanji 3 is scheduled to arrive in theaters on December 13, 2019.
