First official posters. ‘Jumanji: Welcome to the jungle’ has already fully initiated its advocacy campaign and first impressions, about what little we have been taught have not been quite good. The new movie is a reboot of the classic of our childhood released in 1995, ‘Jumanji’, but 20 years later the history and aesthetics have changed completely.
Both posters sin (in a good way) of being very simple but at the same time transmit the essence of the film without necessarily reading the title. They remember, in terms of design and colors, those of very recent films such as ‘Jurassic World’, ‘The Book of the Jungle’ and ‘The Legend of Tarzan’. In them we can read “will arrive at Christmas” and in one of them also the names of the cast: Dwayne Johnson, Kevin Hart, Jack Black and Karen Gillan.
The most significant change in the reboot refers to the plot, because the protagonists will no longer sit around a dusty board to play until the game is over; This time they will light a pretty retro console and when selecting the avatars will be introduced fully into the jungle of the video game. In addition the players will not have the aspect that corresponds to them during the majority of the film, because despite having an adult look, they represent some high school adolescents punished, as if ‘The club of five’ was. Jumanji. Welcome to the jungle ‘will do a little homage to Robin and will premiere next December 22, but to decide whether it was a Christmas present or an uncomfortable comment at the Christmas Eve dinner, we must wait.
