'Jumanji 4' Is Still Happening, Says Karen Gillan

Karen Gillan Confirms ‘Jumanji 4’ Is Definitely in the Works

Karen Gillan has shared exciting news: “Jumanji 4” is still on the horizon. The much-anticipated next chapter of this beloved series is in development, though its arrival has been delayed. The reason? The incredibly busy schedules of its star-studded cast.

Each of the three “Jumanji” films is currently available for streaming on Hulu. This means fans can enjoy the adventures from the very beginning while waiting for the latest installment.

“Jumanji” enthusiasts, it’s time to get ready for another adventure. Karen Gillan has confirmed that the fourth installment of the beloved franchise is indeed in the making. Since director Jake Kasdan announced the project in March 2020, anticipation has been building. In a recent interview, Gillan revealed that the project is definitely going forward. The only question now is when it will happen.

The “Jumanji” series, which rebooted the 1995 classic with “Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle,” has captivated a new generation. Its sequel, “Jumanji: The Next Level,” left fans eager for more with an exciting mid-credit scene. However, updates have been scarce in recent years. Now, Gillan has opened up about the project.

Gillan expressed her thoughts, saying, “I’m sure it’s tricky to wrangle everyone’s schedules, but I haven’t heard anything about it other than the fact that we will be doing it at some point. So, we’re all so enthusiastic about it. We all love working on those films, and it’s just a matter of when.”

The “Jumanji” franchise boasts an impressive cast. The delay in “Jumanji 4” can be attributed to the historic strikes of 2023, but with Gillan’s confirmation, fans remain hopeful for more updates soon. Dwayne Johnson, who plays Dr. Xander, is busy with Disney’s “Moana” live-action film, where he returns as the legendary Maui. Gillan, on the other hand, was last seen in “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3,” one of 2023’s standout superhero movies. She is set to appear next in Adam Cooper’s thriller “Sleeping Dogs,” alongside Russell Crowe and Marton Csokas.

The cast also includes Jack Black, who has recently enjoyed success with “Kung Fu Panda 4.” Last year, he delivered a memorable performance in “The Super Mario Bros,” playing the villain Bowser. Kevin Hart, another key member of the “Jumanji” team, will soon be seen in “Borderlands,” sharing the screen with Black, Cate Blanchett, Jamie Lee Curtis, Ariana Greenblatt, and others. Gathering these busy stars for the next “Jumanji” adventure will indeed take some time.

For the latest updates on the “Jumanji” franchise, keep an eye on Collider.

“Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle” offers a thrilling adventure where four teenagers find themselves trapped inside a magical video game. The only way out is to band together and complete the game. This film, released on December 20, 2017, and directed by Jake Kasdan, runs for 119 minutes and invites viewers to unleash their inner beast.

Fans eager to revisit the “Jumanji” universe can watch “Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle” on Hulu.
