The official title of the third “Jumanji ” movie was announced on Monday morning as Columbia Pictures released the first trailer for “Jumanji: The Next Level.”

Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson is once again dropped in a remote jungle with Kevin Hart, Karen Gillan and Jack Black, but a lot has changed since we last saw them together.

Danny Glover, Danny DeVito, Nick Jonas, Awkwafina, Ser’Darius Blain, Madison Iseman, Morgan Turner and Alex Wolff also star in the movie, set for release on Dec. 13.

While our favorite lead characters all look the same … they’re very different on the inside because “the game is busted.” On the plus side, Johnson’s hips are more flexible, and no, they are not dead or in hell.

As the trailer promises, everything you know about Jumanji is about to change.

According to the studio’s logline, the gang is back but the game has changed. As they return to Jumanji to rescue one of their own, they discover that nothing is as they expect. The players will have to brave parts unknown and unexplored, from the arid deserts to the snowy mountains, in order to escape the world’s most dangerous game.

Based on a book by Chris Van Allsburg, the sequel to 2017’s “Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle” was directed by Jake Kasdan, and written by Kasdan, Jeff Pinkner and Scott Rosenberg.

It is produced by Matt Tolmach, Kasdan, Johnson, Dany Garcia and Hiram Garcia, with David Householter, Melvin Mar, Rosenberg, Pinkner, William Teitler, Ted Field, Mike Weber, Chris Van Allsburg as executive producers.
