Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson Promises Robin Williams' Character Will Be immortalized in 'Jumanji' Reboot

Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson has officially started working on his Jumanji reboot, and took to Instagram to discuss the late Robin Williams, who starred in the original film.

“An important thing that I want to be honest and bring up is Robin Williams. 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. I also think Robin is somewhere lookin’ down and laughing, remembering the first time we met backstage and I (for the first time ever) was a star struck bumbling idiot that couldn’t even get my words out. Idiot. He literally calmed me down w/ that smile and laugh. But that’s for another fun story down the road,” The Rock wrote on his Instagram account. “We got a great team assembled already over at our home base of SONY and now we build from here.”

Dwayne also added, “Here’s another fun part… in the original movie there were three big roles. In our new story there’s now FIVE. Been so damn cool to see all my actor buddies push their projects aside so hopefully they can come play in our world. Should have cool casting announcements this week. Will keep you posted. #TheMagicBegins #JustPressStart #JUMANJI.”

    The best way to honor him is to not make this disastrous remake and leave the original as is.
