It's become a surprise commercial and critical hit - so what has the new Jumanji film got right?
Spoilers lie ahead for Jumanji: Welcome To The Jungle.
Over the weekend, I was back at my local multiplex to see the quite wonderful Coco. On the way in, I saw the manager of said picture palace, and we had a bit of a chat. He’s a friendly man, and just the kind of manager you want: always checks that everyone’s okay, is there if anything goes wrong.
He’s also good for a bit of insider chat, too. And we got talking about Jumanji: Welcome To The Jungle.
I don’t think I was alone in inwardly sighing when I first learned of a reboot/sequel to Jumanji. I don’t hold massive affection for the original (although I thought Zathura was great), but still enjoyed it.
