Kevin Hart has given fans their first look at the new Jumanji sequel which is scheduled to hit cinemas next year. Last month star Dwayne Johnson made it clear that the film would be a sequel to the 1995 children’s classic, which starred Robin Williams, rather than a reboot as some had originally thought.

‘The chemistry & energy of our cast & crew was beyond amazing!!!! This movie is going to be dope as hell....Can't wait to get back to work tomorrow.’ The film will also star Nick Jonas, in an as-yet-undisclosed role.

In August Johnson announced he’d finally ‘found his girl’ with the casting of Guardians of the Galaxy star Karen Gillan. Announcing Gillan’s casting, Johnson said: 'We've searched far and wide to find the one person to complete our #JUMANJI family.

'This isn't just any role, but in many ways the most important role of the movie. We had to find a girl. Ladies and gentlemen, I'm proud to announce a girl who's playing the most important role in our movie - the talented, beautiful and down for a Scottish fight at any time, Ms @KarenGillanOfficial.'

Johnson has also promised fans of the original movie that they won’t be disappointed by the sequel. In August the actor said: 'As a producer on this movie and someone who loves the original, you have my word we'll honour the legend of "Alan Parrish" and properly introduce a whole new generation to the fun and crazy JUMANJI universe that so many of us loved and grew up on.'
