The trailer gives us our first proper look at the sequel to the iconic Robin Williams film. The storyline has been given an update, with ‘Welcome To The Jungle’ transporting four high school kids into the world of Jumanji via a retro four-player video game.

The kids randomly choose their avatars leading to some hilarious body swap moments including the school “babe” finding herself inhabiting the body of Jack Black.

‘Jumanji: Welcome To The Jungle’ arrives in cinemas this Christmas.
