Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle

With new years, there are new movies and Jumanji is taking over the new year. The holiday craze was released on December 20, 2017, and within these three short weeks, the movie has become the new craze throughout the whole world. This fantasy/adventure movie starring Dwayne Johnson, Kevin Hart, Jack Black, and Karen Gillan is a movie that will bring laughter to the whole family. The plot offers a role reversal in each of the four characters, which is discovered when the players first enter the game. When four teenagers get sent to detention, they discover an old game, Jumanji and pick a character and prepare to play, but instead get sucked into the game.  Throughout the game, many obstacles are faced, challenging each of the character’s individual skills and weaknesses. In order to get home, the characters must work as a team and put all of their personal skills together. Along the way, each character has to face a real-life struggle, which is where role-reversal comes in. The characters each teen picks seems to be a polar-opposite of the individual. This plot twist allows the humor of the movie, but also allows the teens to overcome daily struggles  they face back home. Jumanji has become a huge hit and has brought in $666.20 million in the last few weeks, which is more than Star Wars: Rogue One brought in. I would 10/10 recommend this movie to anyone looking for a laugh.
