The new Jumanji movie is currently filming in Hawaii. You might think that means sipping Mai Tai's by the pool every day for cast and crew, but based on The Rock's new video that's not quite the case. It appears that the filming has been a harrowing experience, even for the insanely physically fit Dwayne Johnson. We're not sure he'll make it off the set alive...oh, wait, nevermind.
The Rock likes to have fun making movies and it appears that the set of Jumanji will be no exception. While the environment does look to be pretty exotic, it's unlikely that cast or crew will be in need of anything from the looks of the camp they have set up. Rocky's social media was going absolutely crazy with pictures and images from the set of his last film, Fast 8 and it looks like the actor has no plans to slow down with that here.The video doesn't really tell us anything about the film. It's just here to give us the punchline of the cameraman showing us that things aren't quite as desolate as Dwayne Johnson would have us believe. As far as it goes, it does that well. In addition to being a great wrestler, The Rock was also one of the funniest people to ever be part of the WWE. His feigned anger is perfect.
But The Rock isn't the only guy on the set of Jumanji with a sense of humor. Kevin Hart also recorded a video from base camp for his followers. In it, he implies that shooting has been shut down because Jack Black needed to finish his lunch, although, by the end, it appears that Black isn't the one actually delaying things.
If the comedy in the movie Jumanji is as solid as what we're getting on Instagram, then there may be some hope that the movie will turn out alright. The movie, as with many properties that are being remade after a long hiatus, has many fans concerned. The fact that the original movie starred the late Robin Williams only adds to the original's perceived reverence. The Rock has promised that the new film will pay tribute to Williams' character from the original film and that they are following in the footsteps of the original, and not remaking the movie that people loved.
What do you think of the Jumanji remake? Are you curious to see how it turns out or have you already made up your mind? Let us know in the comments.
