In September 2016, audiences got their first look at a set photo from Jake Kasdan's Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle, a new adventure inspired by 1995's Robin Williams-led adaptation of the Chris Van Allsburg children's book. In the photo, Dwayne Johnson, Kevin Hart, and Jack Black are each wearing jungle-appropriate outfits…alongside co-star Karen Gillan, who's wearing what amounts to child-sized clothing. The photo prompted immediate criticism, prompting Gillan to try and defuse controversy by telling The Hollywood Reporter, "The payoff is worth it, I promise!"
THR later revealed that the first footage for the film, which screened at CinemaCon in March, does explain Gillan's skimpy outfit. "The plot involves four high-school students who are forced to clean out the basement of their school while in detention," reads a recap. "They find an old video game (rather than a board game) and each chooses a character to play." Gillan's character is a shy girl who transforms into her adult character, and it's presumed the costume choice is a reflection of the way video games portray women. Considering the controversy, perhaps we'll see the same reveal in the movie's first trailer.
