As one might imagine, playing a video game character isn’t as easy as it looks, whether it be through challenging destinations, badass stunts, and long hours of gameplay -- you know, the usual! When Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle assembled comedic duo Dwayne Johnson and Kevin Hart in the roles of avatars, their over-a-foot height difference, differing experiences in the action movie sphere, and great chemistry certainly made for some hilarious moments. Just take a look at this behind-the-scenes bit from the set of the upcoming sequel:
Putting Kevin Hart on a camel for the next Jumanji movie is comedic gold, especially with The Rock in the background recording him on said camel for his Instagram, hoping he’ll catch him falling off. With this video from the set of his upcoming holiday release, Dwayne Johnson explained that he’s had plenty of camel training, especially during his time as The Scorpion King in the early ‘00s. It doesn’t look like the actor has been quick to pass on his knowledge to Kevin Hart out of the fun of seeing him interact with the camels.
The comedian took to Instagram to comment on The Rock’s Jumanji 3 set video. Here’s what he said:
That camel had a attitude...shit scared the hell out of me.
Kevin Hart added five laughing emojis to make it clear he had a sense of humor about it all. He then followed Johnson’s lead and posted his own camel post on Instagram, which featured the duo looking a lot more friendly with each other and their desert animal co-workers. Check it out:
Gotta love how Dwayne Johnson posts a video hoping Kevin Hart will fall and Hart posts a cute photo with them -- including a loving message to Johnson, calling him his brother! The pair have been filming in the Navajo Desert in New Mexico following starting out the year shooting in Atlanta. After they wrapped in Atlanta a few weeks ago, Dwayne Johnson teased that the cast would be moving the project to the desert, snow-capped mountains and jungles. Looks like there is still a lot more to do for the cast before the film is released in December!
Along with Dwayne Johnson and Kevin Hart returning, Jumanji 3 will also star Jack Black, Karen Gillan, Nick Jonas, and the same teenagers in the 2017 action flick. Hart has teased that the new film will see the teens finding themselves back in the game but in a new level on a more risky adventure with raised stakes. Gillan’s Ruby Roundhouse will also reportedly evolve and have more to do this time around.
Jumanji 3 also has enlisted an impressive handful of new actors to the cast including Danny DeVito, Awkwafina, Danny Glover, and Dania Ramirez in undisclosed roles. The untitled Jumanji film will hit theaters on December 13.
