Jumanji 3 Is Officially Happening: Actors and Production House Confirm It!
1. Jumanji 3 will be the 4th film in the Jumanji franchise:

2. Actress Karen Gillan explains why the new movie hasn’t happened yet:
In August 2022, Karen Gillan explained why Jumanji: The Next Level hasn’t gotten a sequel yet, when one fan asked if there would be another Jumanji movie to complete the reboot’s trilogy.
Fortunately, the actress assured fans that it will as Gillan said yes: “Thank you! Yes I believe there will be another film, I don’t know when!”
Unfortunately, the red-headed beauty also stated that the cast has to wait until they’re all available to film it. She stated on Instagram that “It’s hard to get everyone’s schedules aligned! But we are all very excited to make another one.”
3. Official Jumanji 3 confirmation:
Hiram Garcia, President of Seven Bucks Productions, was asked back in January of 2022 about the new film coming along.
“It’s going to happen, for sure,” he revealed. “We have a really big vision for that third Jumanji movie. We were just discussing the pitch the other day. We’re bringing it to Sony shortly.”
Hiram Garcia also added: “But that movie’s going to happen. It’s going to happen after Red One, but that timing actually works out well with all of the actors scheduled anyway.”
“All of the actors are super busy. So the timing is going to work out great, but we have a really great pitch for the movie we’re about to bring into the studio, probably going to get a script written soon.”
The actors in question are of course Dwayne Johnson, Jack Black, Kevin Hart, and Karen Gillan.
Hiram Garcia, President of Seven Bucks Productions once revealed that it is tough to shoot sequels to all of Johnson’s movies, no matter how much Hollywood wants to, because if that were the plan, this actor would “literally never stop working”.
Right now the aforementioned production company is focused on filming ‘Red One’, more than anything because they work with just the right amount of time. And it is said that the project is a “great Christmas movie”, designed to be available through Prime Video, Amazon’s streaming platform. “It’s a really fun Christmas idea with a tone that’s close to that of ‘ Fast & Furious: Hobbs & Shaw ‘ and a bit of a ‘ Guardians of the Galaxy ‘ vibe, with crazy mythological elements and over-the-top action . “
The most promising evidence of Jumanji 3 happening was when Hiram García published a photograph of the performers on his Twitter account, this time in full action and in one of the sets of the video game in which the protagonists will probably immerse themselves again.
Although it looks like an image from Welcome to the Jungle, it is hinted at in its caption. “The gang is back! It’s your favorite team! Although some things are not what they seem. So buckle up because soon we will all play.” What can be seen is that the costumes of the actors are identical and the location could be the eastern market in which they enter the video game for the first time.
