Classic Movie Remake to Be Released in 2016
Say it ain't so! One of my favorite childhood movies is being remade, and the official release date has been announced.
Sony released a list of upcoming movies and their release dates, and many people were shocked to see "Jumanji" on the list. Nope, it's not a mistake. There is really going to be a "Jumanji" remake. There was talk about doing the remake back in 2012, but it was never official until now. We have no idea who is acting in it, who's directing it... we basically have no details, other than it is to be released in December of 2016.
I really don't know how I feel about this because the original Jumanji is perfection. If it is a prequel or a sequel or something, that's one thing. But a REMAKE? How can you remake such a fantastic movie? This movie absolutely scarred me for life as a child, and I wouldn't have it any other way. Plus, Robin Williams made that movie what it is. It's one of his best movies, in my opinion. I can't imagine the movie without him!
How do you feel about this? Would you see the remake? Leave a comment below.
