In the trailer, soundtrack provided by Guns and Roses’ “Welcome to the Jungle,” a group of kids get sucked into a video game and become adult versions of themselves.

The original Jumanji, starring the late Robin Williams, did big business for Sony’s TriStar Pictures in 1995, grossing $262 million worldwide. That movie found two children playing the Jumanji board game, unwittingly releasing Williams’ Alan Parrish, who had been trapped in the game for years.
