Danny Glover Joins Jumanji 2 Cast

Published

Lethal Weapon star Danny Glover has signed on to star in the sequel to 2017’s Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle

The veteran actor will be joining Dwayne Johnson, Danny DeVito and Jack Black in the as yet unnamed sequel.

The sequel builds on the previous installment, with the whole franchise based on the picture book by Chris Van Allsburg and on the foundation set up in the 1995 movie adaptation that starred Robin Williams. Both told the story of a magical board game in which wild jungle animals invaded the real world.

The recent movie updated the premise by making a video game the magical focal point, through which four teens were transported into its world, where they were then transformed into avatars portrayed by Johnson, Black, Kevin Hart and Karen Gillan.

“From Awkafina to Danny DeVito to now one of my action heroes, Danny Glover — it’s been awesome having so many actors and OG legends raise their hands wanting to come and play in our Jumanji universe,” Johnson told The Hollywood Reporter. “‘Who turns into who?’ will always be the fun magic sauce for our audience.”
