“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.
I 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.”
