First Jumanji set photo has The Rock and co-stars ready for an adventure

The promises have been made, the actors have been cast, and now filming is underway on Jumanji, a semi-continuation of the beloved 1995 movie of the same name starring Robin Williams. To commemorate the first day of production, The Rock took to his Instagram to share a photo of himself and co-stars Kevin Hart, Karen Gillan, and Jack Black all geared up and ready for adventure.

Check it out below...

The caption in Johnson's photo also reveals some fun character names, the best of which is reserved for The Rock himself - Dr Smolder Bravestone. I see what you did there Dwayne...

The photo has already attracted a little bit of backlash due to Gillan's scantily clad character, but Johnson assures us that "her jungle wardrobe will make sense when you know the plot". For now then, in the Rock we trust. 

Directed by Jake Kasdan and starring Dwayne Johnson, Karen Gillan, Jack Black, Nick Jonas, and Kevin Hart, Jumanji will be released in cinemas on July 28, 2017.
