The third Jumanji movie hits cinemas next month and the first reaction has come from one of its stars. Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson who plays video game avatar Dr Smoulder Bravestone attended a private screening of Jumanji: The Next Level with his wife Lauren Hashian yesterday.
The Rock posted on his Instagram account a picture of an empty screening room with Jumanji The Next Level’s logo at the front.
The 47-year-old wrote: “Life is noisy. Life is busy.
“Nice to sit in a quiet, empty theater with @laurenhashianofficial and watch our new JUMANJI: The Next Level.
“After two years of hard work (from thousands of people) it’s finally ready.”

Well, by the looks of things, this time he’s in Nick Jonas’ Jefferson “Seaplane” McDonough.
Fans will remember that in Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle, this character was used by Colin Hanks’ Alex, who had been trapped inside the video game since his teenage years.
And in the film’s opening, Jefferson was one of five playable characters aside from the main four, so surely this is the one Spencer chose in The Next Level?
This would mean that Nick Jonas’ appearance in the trailer is Spencer being reunited with the others.
After all, why would he be with the horse that Bethany is inhabiting?
Of course, if not Jefferson there are a couple of stars with undisclosed roles that Spencer could be playing as.
These include both Dania Ramirez and Awkwafina.
Jumanji: The Next Level is released in UK cinemas on December 11, 2019, with previews on December 7 and 8.
