Just days after the first photos surfaced from Jumanji 2 as production begins, we have a new video from the set, courtesy of Dwayne Johnson. The actor tried to stay in character as Dr. Bravestone, revealing how he's trying to explore unseen lands, until his cameraman messed up the shot, by showcasing some of the cast and crew behind-the-scenes. This will surely be the first of many videos shared by The Rock as filming continues. Here's what the actor had to say about this video on Instagram.
"My character's one of the greatest explorers in the world and I'm deep in the jungles of #Jumanji and discovering new land.. never mind @hhgarcia41 ruined the damn shot. #OnLocation #Hawaii #Welcome2Jumanji"
The Instagram video gives us a good look at the jungle locales the production is using in Hawaii, but unfortunately, he doesn't reveal anything about the story, or his character Dr. Bravestone. We don't see any of the actor's co-stars in this video either, such as Kevin Hart, Jack Black or Karen Gillan, but with production just getting under way on Jumanji 2, we'll surely see more of them in the near future. We'll also have to wait and see if any of these cast members address the movie's first controversy.
After the first set photo was revealed, several fans took to social media, criticizing the skimpy costume worn by Karen Gillan, while her male counterparts Dwayne Johnson, Kevin Hart and Jack Black were fully dressed. Karen Gillan took to social media yesterday, stating there is a reason she is wearing "child-sized clothes" in the first photo, a sentiment echoed by Dwayne Johnson in his original post as well. There is a theory circulating as to why she may be wearing "child-sized clothes" in this photo.
In the original movie, siblings Peter (Bradley Pierce) and Judy Shepherd (Kirsten Dunst) find Alan Parrish (Robin Williams), who has been stuck in the game's inner world for decades, with the kids given a chance to free him if they can beat the game. Some believe that Karen Gillan's character Ruby Roundhouse has been stuck in the game since she was a child, which results in her wearing the same clothes as an adult, only much smaller. That theory hasn't been confirmed quite yet, but Dwayne Johnson also reiterated that this movie, which he stated was a sequel and not a reboot, will pay homage to the late Robin Williams character Alan Parish. Take a look at the new video from the set featuring Dwayne Johnson, as filming continues on Jumanji 2.
