Jumanji Remake Happening; Causes Social Media Uproar

More and more movie remakes are happening now and although some people are pleased with these reboots, others don’t agree with some movie remakes. The latest possible movie remake is the 1995 hit movie “Jumanji,” which starred the late Robin Williams.

“Jumanji” is a board game and Williams played the man trapped in the game for 26 years. He was then released when two kids discovered the game and played it. Since playing the game, the kids as well as Williams went through a lot of obstacles to finish the game. When Sony Pictures announced on August 5, 2015 that a reboot is happening for the movie, not everyone was pleased.

The remake of “Jumanji” is slated to to hit cinemas on Christmas Day of 2016. However, the movie still has no director and the actors haven’t been named yet. Fans of the movie took to their social media accounts to express their displeasure about the “Jumanji” reboot. One user said that “Hollywood has run out of ideas.” These comments were triggered due to the fact that Williams can’t reprise his role anymore and fans think that it would never be the same.

Check out some of the Twitter feeds below regarding the “Jumanji” reboot:

It is understandable that some of these people aren’t happy with the “Jumanji” remake but open thing’s for sure, though. If this pushes through, the movie will have awesome special effects that will open a new perspective on the mysterious board game.
