Much like the overly complicated rules of one of those weird board games you get at a special aisle in the toy store, more and more details about Dwayne Johnson and Kevin Hart’s Jumanji movie are slowly becoming clearer. Back in August, we learned that it’s going to be a sequel to the original Robin Williams-starring film (not a reboot, as some expected), and also that Doctor Who’s Karen Gillan would be joining previously announced co-stars Nick Jonas and Jack Black.
