Jumanji Gets An Honest Trailer

While we're sitting here twiddling our thumbs waiting for Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle to hit theaters, the nice folks at Screen Junkies have given us something to occupy our time– a new Honest Trailer for 1995's Jumanji, "a movie with more scares than Ouija, more quality than Dungeons and Dragons, and about a thousand times more logic than Battleship."

The trailer recommends that people revisit Jumanji before setting out to "catch step 16 of the Rock's 25 point plan to rule the world," which also includes "perfect eyebrow stuff" (which he has, of course, already accomplished), "Jungle Cruise, why not," and "reveal self as actual Scorpion King." 

The trailer sends up Jumanji as "the vaguely African board game that's ruined at least three generations of kids' lives," and notes that the group will do "whatever it takes to finish the game they started 26 years ago, just as soon as they finish talking about finishing the game they started 26 years ago."

The trailer goes on to cite the real scares in the film, which include unresolved childhood issues, fears about your own inadequacy, and tons of PTSD. "So strap in for a film that finally cracked the code for being a good movie about a game based on a made-up game from a book, filled with characters you actually care about," the trailer concludes. "And always cast Robin Williams Williams. Man, I miss that guy." 

Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle, which will feature Dwayne Johnson, Kevin Hart, Jack Black, and Karen Gillan traveling into the world of the titular game, hits theaters on Dec. 20.
