The release date of Jumanji 3 has been announced by Dwayne Johnson on social media. The Rock revealed that the third movie will hit theaters on December 13th, 2019.
Interestingly, Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle was a massive success at the box office, nearly earning $1 billion worldwide. Additionally, it was a critical success as well, mostly for keeping the sequel in the same world as the 1995 classic while breaking new ground.

Officially planting our JUMANJI flag. On DECEMBER 13th, 2019 – the game is not over. I hold JUMANJI very close to my heart and I’m beyond grateful you made our movie into the global juggernaut ($1BILLION+) it became. Can’t wait for you to see what our new adventure & new characters have in store as Christmas comes early. And once again, I get to slap @kevinhart4real’s lip’s into next week. The world is happy. #FearTheDrums #TheGameIsNotOver #JUMANJI DECEMBER 13th, 2019
