[THIS ARTICLE CONTAINS SPOILERS FOR JUMANJI: WELCOME TO THE JUNGLE]
Though a lot of people were doubting the success of Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle, the movie has actually come out with some decent reviews, and a people are loving the updated take on the classic 90s movie. As it turns out, the film was actually planned to end differently.
Talking to THR, the cast explains what would have went differently in the end. Karen Gillan (Ruby Roundhouse) explains:
"In previous versions, there was more of that where [Spencer] wanted to stay in the game with Martha. We made way more of that. It definitely could be interesting and would definitely leave it open to a sequel."
The original ending had all the four characters coming back to the real world, but the ending could have been way crazier—with Jumanji turning itself into an app on the kids' phones. Ser'Darius Blain (Young Fridge) explains:
"There were a few different ideas. Originally when Alex [Wolff] and Morgan [Turner] kiss, we start hearing the drums again and then everyone gets the game downloaded on their phones. Then it's like, ‘Oh, shoot! We're all going to be sucked in.' That would have been a cool way to go."
Jumanji is surprisingly doing well in the box office, and this could certainly open doors for a Jumanji3 down the line. Personally I'm just hoping they try to be a bit more unpredictable this time around. I mean, I haven't even watched the movie, and I could tell everyone was going to come back alright. We need more tragedies a la Robin Williams' Alan Parish.
Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle is now out in theaters.
