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.

Predicting the future is near impossible -- but that doesn‘t stop us all from having a red hot go. Human beings have been predicting the future since the beginning of history and the results range from the hilarious to the downright uncanny.

One thing all future predictions have in common: they‘re rooted in our current understanding of how the world works. It‘s difficult to escape that mindset. We have no idea how technology will evolve, so our ideas are connected to the technology of today.

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.

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.
