There are only a handful of weeks left in 2019, but they are overflowing with exciting upcoming titles. Certainly one of the most anticipated is Jake Kasdan’s Jumanji: The Next Level, which is arriving about two years after Jumanji: Welcome To The Jungle turned out to be a $960 million global hit.

There is still some time to wait for the new sequel, which won’t be hitting theaters until mid-December, but if early buzz is any indication, it should be another fun and funny adventure to get us through the cold winter months.
With the stars of Jumanji: The Next Level preparing to do press interviews this week, the first screenings of the movie were held tonight, and one member in the exclusive audience was CinemaBlend’s own Sean O’Connell. Without giving a broad sense of his opinion on the matter, he noted that the sequel goes far in terms of expanding the universe of the series, and had particular praise for the performance by Kevin Hart – who in the movie plays a video game avatar representing a human character played by Danny Glover:
The new #JumanjiTheNextLevel has some huge surprises and introduces a LOT of story that’s fun to explore. The best reason to go back into the game? @KevinHart4real channeling Danny Glover. That joke kept making me laugh long and hard! pic.twitter.com/AtHsaAezSw

Also taking part in the big screen action tonight was Collider’s Perri Nemiroff, who also very much approved of Jumanji: The Next Level’s body swap comedy. While she didn’t highlight any performance in particular, one addition to the ensemble that she apparently appreciated is Awkwafina, who is having a pretty fantastic year in 2019 thanks to all of the acclaimed earned by the drama The Farewell this past summer.
Body swap movies are the greatest - especially a body swap movie with an A+ ensemble like #JumanjiTheNextLevel. The action is fun but I could watch Johnson, Hart, Gillan and Black play with that format for hours. And now with Awkwafina too! Such a great addition to the group! pic.twitter.com/87TM7nyiQ9

Host Maude Garrett also had some extremely positive opinions to share about the movie, suggesting that with some more consideration she may consider it an even better adventure than its 2017 predecessor. She not only laughed a lot, but appreciates how Jumanji: The Next Level builds upon what was previously established in the last chapter:
Parents need to know that Jumanji: The Next Level is the sequel to the Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle, itself a reboot of the 1995 movie Jumanji. Years after being pulled into the Jumanji video game world, Spencer (Alex Wolff) rediscovers the broken game in storage. While trying to fix it, he's pulled back into the dangerous virtual world. When Bethany (Madison Iseman), Martha (Morgan Turner), and Fridge (Ser'Darius Blain) find out where he's gone, they set out to rescue him. But once in the game, they realize that while the avatar bodies -- Smolder Bravestone (Dwayne Johnson), Moose Finbar (Kevin Hart), Ruby Roundhouse (Karen Gillan), and Professor Shelly Overton (Jack Black) -- are the same, Spencer's grandpa Eddie (Danny DeVito) and his friend Milo (Danny Glover) have taken over two of them. With the grandpas in tow, they must find and rescue Spencer while facing a whole new set of murderous obstacles. The previous film had lots of action violence, as well as swearing and sexual references, and this looks to continue the trend. But kids who enjoyed the action and humor of the first film will likely want to see this one, too.
