Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle made a lot of money. Despite initial hesitation from fans of the original after the announcement of the soft reboot, the film went on to be a box office success. This means, as is the way with Hollywood, a sequel is on the way. 

In the new trailer for Jumanji: The Next Level, the original cast of Jack Black, Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson, Kevin Hart, and Karen Gillan return as video game avatars, but the cast is being padded with some new additions. Danny DeVito and Danny Glover are joining the cast as grandfathers of the kids who are stuck in the game, but wait, there's more. 

The trailer shows Danny DeVito and Danny Glover getting sucked into the game along with the kids, inhabiting the bodies of The Rock and Kevin Hart, respectively. The trailer also shows off the return of Nick Jonas and the arrival of series newcomer Awkwafina. 

Jumanji: The Next Level is set for release this Christmas.
