World, meet The Smoldering Dr. Bravestone.
“Jumanji” star Dwayne Johnson delivered the first look at his character in the film, Dr. Bravestone, via his Instagram account on Thursday.
With his hat and safari-ready outfit, Johnson’s Bravestone looks like Indiana Jones. Except maybe twice the size.
“EXCLUSIVE FIRST LOOK: Concept art of my #JUMANJI character ‘The Smoldering’ Dr. Bravestone. (not sure where my pecs went;),” Johnson wrote. “This is gonna be fun.”
Currently slated for a July 2017 release, the upcoming “Jumanji” movie won’t be a reboot of the original 1995 film, which starred Robin Williams, but rather a continuation.
“Now in two weeks I’ll reunite with ol’ friends Kevin Hart & Jack Black and we have the honor to introduce a whole new generation to the amazing world of #JUMANJI. *(for the record we are NOT making a reboot, but rather a continuation of the awesome JUMANJI story),” Johnson said in an Instagram post last month.
The actor has said however, that the new project will “honor” Williams, who committed suicide in 2014.
“An important thing that I want to be honest and bring up is Robin Williams,” Johnson said via Instagram earlier this year. “The love and respect I have for this man is boundless. You have my word, we will honor his name and the character of ‘Alan Parrish’ will stand alone and be forever immortalized in the world of JUMANJI in an earnest and cool way. I have an idea of what to do and I think his family will be proud.”
