Welcome back to the jungle. In an announcement that should surprise no one - considering the fact that Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle is closing in on a billion US dollars at the box office - there's a sequel in the works to the comedy reboot starring Dwayne Johnson, Jack Black, Kevin Hart and Karen Gillan.

The formula of Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle sounds like it can't miss. Put some big personalities in a gorgeous setting and have them tell funny jokes and perform a lot of action. When those big personalities are played by stars like Dwayne Johnson, Kevin Hart, and Jack Black, the odds of success are even higher. Jumanji meets those expectations for sure, it just never exceeds them.

The original Jumanji was pretty straightforward -- a boy gets trapped in a jungle board game for 30 years, he and the other players finish the game, and he's sent back in time once they're done. But apparently, there's a whole lot more to this simple tale to be explored in Jumanji: Welcome To The Jungle, and we're trying to wrap our heads around what the hell it means.

Normally when reviewing a movie, you come up with a healthy mix of positive and negative things to say about it. In the case of Disney's Moana, though, I'm really struggling to come up with the latter. It's just that wonderful.
