During the Sony Pictures presentation at CinemaCon today, chairman Tom Rothman revealed that the next Jumanji movie will hit the big screen in time for Christmas 2019.
Rothman acknowledged that the release date would pit it against Star Wars: Episode IX from Disney, Lucasfilm and director J.J. Abrams.
Last year, Jumanji: Welcome To The Jungle hit theatres and went on to become the biggest blockbuster ever to come from Sony Pictures thanks to almost $1-Billion worldwide.
The sequel to the 1995 Robin Williams original was especially popular overseas, earning $77-Million from China alone for a international cume of $552-Million.
Starring Dwayne Johnson, Kevin Hart, Jack Black, and Karen Gillan, Jumanji: Welcome To The Jungle followed four high school students who are sucked into a video game.
Jake Kasdan directed and is expected to return for the next installment.
