Dwayne Johnson took to his Instagram account to try to calm people down about the Jumanji remake. He understands fans concerns though, especially about how they are going to handle the late Robin Williams character. He said this about Robin Williams and the reboot.
“The love and respect I have for this man is boundless. You have my word, we will honor his name and the character of “Alan Parrish” will stand alone and be forever immortalized in the world of JUMANJI in an earnest and cool way. I have an idea of what to do and I think his family will be proud. I also think Robin is somewhere lookin’ down and laughing, remembering the first time we met backstage and I (for the first time ever) was a star struck bumbling idiot that couldn’t even get my words out. Idiot. He literally calmed me down w/ that smile and laugh. But that’s for another fun story down the road.”
The Rock also mentions that they are expanding the cast from three main characters to five, and he said they need to “begin where it all started”. He also stated that there will be a few new character announcements this week. So, Kevin Hart might be announced later this week as a character along with three other people.
