Stan Lee’s Los Angeles Comic Con might need a bigger room.

Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson will be making a special appearance at the 2017 L.A. Comic Con. Johnson will be at the convention on Oct. 28, the second day of the three-day event to promote his upcoming film Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle, which is slated for a December release date.

This year, EW has partnered with the ‘Con and will be bringing you Women Who Kick Ass: Sci-Fi edition — featuring Battlestar Galactica’‘s Katee Sackhoff — and a tribute to ’90s favorite Quantum Leap with star Scott Bakula and creator Don Bellisario.

The arrival of Jumanji: Welcome To The Jungle is getting close, so it’s time for fans of the first movie to know how this new adventure actually connects. The simple answer is to say that since the first movie’s stars got the game though sheer luck, it may be the game itself who’s the real hero of the Jumanji series. And if that’s the case, then the board game has gotten a serious upgrade to the digital world of video games. The most important detail, however, is that unlike the people living in the real world, the young heroes of the new Jumanji don’t even have the original Robin Williams movie to compare it to.

It’s for that reason that Welcome To The Jungle has faced an uphill battle from the start, as devoted fans feared the worst. But after our visit to the set of the new Jumanji adventure, we had a much better grasp on what the studio, director Jake Kasdan, and the producers were seeking. Not just a property people love, embrace, and value as a truly heartwarming story of children, first and foremost… but one that can stretch to new limits. Limits like a new cast, new story, new game, and new rules.

Just to be clear: the rule that says sequels or reboots to films like Jumanji always come up short may still stand. Fortunately for the cast and crew… that may not be what they’ve created here.

When the word first broke of Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson starring in a brand new movie bearing the “Jumanji” name, many assumed the worst. In an age of property re-imaginings, sequels, prequel trilogies, and even ‘spiritual sequels’ or reboot/remakes, it was seen as the obvious explanation (and since the first film was based on Chris Van Allsburg’s book, it’s more fair game than most). But soon after that message began to take root, Johnson personally clarified that the new Jumanji movie was NOT a reboot.

When we asked producer Matt Tolmach about how fans should position this new movie in relation to the original, he promoted a much broader vision of the movie’s universe – part of the pitch that got this movie into production, and perfectly in keeping with the original version of the story:

It’s a… honestly, and I know this is going to sound like a ‘positioning statement’ but it’s true, we’ve always looked at it as like another Jumanji adventure. The idea is Jumanji is this game– I mean that idea comes from the original movie. Comes from the book, you know? That there is this game, and the game sort of travels. Through time, certainly in the first movie, and around the world. So the idea is: the game is the thing that is the legacy… It doesn’t involve any of the specific characters – although, perhaps – but not literally those people. It’s another Jumanji adventure using a lot of the same mythology.

And I love that idea, not in a clever like, ‘ahh there’s a lot of movies to be made here,’ although that’s not terrible either. But the idea that Jumanji travels… If you happen to find it on a beach, crazy s*** will happen, you know what I mean? So it’s a completely different adventure than that, but borrows from the fundamental mythology of the game.

So there you have it: a continuation of the story from the first movie… so not a reboot or remake. But not following the same characters, or even the same form of the game… so not a sequel, either. Fortunately for those who feared there would be almost no actual mention of Alan Parrish’s time with the game, we know that won’t be the case, either. Even now, Robin Williams stands as a giant in the Jumanji story.

There are sure to be purists who oppose any continuation of the Jumanji story on principle, and there are many who will support their case. But some fans may feel differently: like actress Karen Gillan, who didn’t take much convincing to join the next chapter of one of her favorite movies of all time. Understandably, she told us that makes her a harsher critic than some. But it also means she’s more interested than most to know just what Alan Parrish did while he was “waiting” for a new player to roll a five or eight…

What’s really clever about it is– Well I always wondered where Robin Williams’ character went for all of that time in the first one, and it was sort of left to the imagination a little. And that’s where this film comes in, and we get to see exactly where he went, and what it feels like, and what it looks like. That’s the biggest difference.

And when Gillan says “exactly” where Alan went, she may mean that… exactly. The fact that traces of Alan and evidence of his stay in the jungle would be found had already been confirmed by Jumanji actor Jack Black, though it’s hard to know how his inventions or ingenuity will be as useful in a video game made real.

On the same set visit, Dwayne Johnson gave a slightly spoilery-tease of Alan Parrish’s REAL Jumanji role, discovering much more than just the rules of his own game. It sounds like a massive, planned twist on the mythology, and it may prove to be just that. But as director Jake Kasdan explains it, the inclusion and expansion of Alan Parrish still serves this standalone story first – and the original is not required viewing to understand the new film (although Kasdan recommends it, since the movie is fantastic). The Alan Parrish impact on the story is there, but perhaps only because… there was no way it couldn’t be:

I don’t want to say too much about it, but I also don’t want to mislead you into thinking there’s some massive reveal, you know? I think we’ve laced it in in a way that I hope is clever. I certainly think [Robin Williams’] performance and the character are incredibly resonant, so we were very conscious of acknowledging his place at the top of Jumanji mountain.

How’s that for intriguing? We’re still not sure whether Jumanji will remain a story with Alan Parrish at its heart, or what cameos, Easter Eggs, or hints may show a stronger link between both movies than anyone is letting on for now. Until we get some solid answers, we welcome any and all theories in the comments.

Dwayne Johnson & more talk Robin Williams’ influence on new Jumanji

“In the jungle, you must wait, until the dice read 5 or 8.”

That was the little jingle that doomed Robin Williams’ Alan Parrish in the original Jumanji to over twenty years in the jungle, trapped inside a game and fending for himself against the elements. Williams’ performance in the 1995 film has been a fan favorite for many years, standing alongside the likes of Mrs. Doubtfire, Aladdin‘s Genie, and spawning many a meme even in the modern world. The upcoming new movie, titled Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle, takes what happened to Parrish and makes it the main plot of the film, by bringing four unsuspecting kids into the world of Jumanji.

Even though Williams tragically passed away three years ago, the cast and crew for the film are hoping to keep his spirit and energy alive in the new movie. Star Dwayne Johnson, who is also a producer on the film, opened up about it when we visited the set of the film last year.

“That was the number one thing that I just wanted to have open dialogue with Jake (Kasdan, the director) and Matt Tolmach, our producer, and the studio. What is the way that we can pay homage to the original movie, not only to the original movie, but to Robin Williams in a way that felt good and that made people feel good, but yet, as you said, not get bogged down in it? So, I think we came up with some really nice ways to pay homage and yeah, I think the family is going to be very, very happy with it. And without giving too much away, there… Now, I’m biting my tongue right now…”

Johnson takes on the role of “Dr. Smolder Bravestone” in the film, but is in essence playing two characters, as he’s merely the avatar for a nerdy 16-year-old kid. Though in the real world he’s a scrawny gamer, in Jumanji he’s got the muscular prowess of The Rock. In the film, he’s joined by frequent collaborator Kevin Hart, who plays “Moose Finbar,” a zoologist that is the avatar for the star football player “Moose,” (who is about twice the size of Hart himself).

“I’m a fan of Robin Williams,” Hart said on set. “I think that’s an important thing to bring up, because people think that this is a remake of the original Jumanji, and it’s not. It’s a continuation. You don’t touch what’s great and try to redo it… In no way, shape or form are we disrespecting, or reshaping, or reforming the original Jumanji. It’s a continuation.”

Also appearing in the film is Jack Black as “Professor Shelly Oberon,” a portly cartographer that happens to be the avatar for the prettiest girl in the school, Bethany.

“In a weird way, I feel like it was the real life I was born to play,” Black tells us. “It was very easy to tap into my inner 16-year-old girl. I don’t know why, but just to have that power of attraction. It’s subtle, but when you know you’ve got it, you know you’ve got it. And it’s just a look, a subtle gesture, and you know you’ve got it.”

Black hadn’t seen the original film when he was offered the new movie (reuniting him with his Orange County director) but sought it out quickly.

“I thought I should watch the original. Robin Williams kicked so much ass. It’s right up there with my favorite Robin Williams performances because it’s perfectly suited to his strengths in that heightened reality. My favorite Robin Williams are Aladdin, he throws down hard in Aladdin, and Jumanji. Those for me, pound for pound, are the most powerful one-two punch.”

Rounding out the cast comes the self-proclaimed toughest critic for a new Jumanji movie, Karen Gillan as the ass-kicking “Ruby Roundhouse,” the avatar for the shy bookworm, Martha.

“Honestly it’s in my top 3 films of all time,” Gillan says of the original Jumanji. “Of all time. I feel like in your top three you have to have a couple of films that you really respect and then one that’s like that special childhood nostalgia film. That’s what Jumanji is for me. I just loved Robin Williams so much in it and I loved Kirstin Dunst in it. She was so cool. I loved the whole concept, it was really fun. As a kid I thought it was totally magical.”

Gillan went on to say that of everyone involved, and thanks to her passion for the original movie, she’s the toughest customer on making a new one.

“I feel like I’m judging it harder than most people will because I love the original so much, and it passes the test with me. Definitely I was very protective over it as well, because I just loved it so much. I feel like it’s a great continuation and it’s going to live up to everything the first film set for it… Hopefully take it even further.”

Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle will arrive in theaters on December 20.

Whereas the 1995 film Jumanji brought the wonders and horrors of the jungle into the suburbs of New Hampshire, the long-gestating follow-up Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle will play the opposite game, transporting its characters straight into the wilderness. This time around, Jumanji takes the form of a video game, but the biggest difference yet is what it does to those who play. The teens who get sucked into the game don’t exactly stay true to themselves in the process, instead transforming into the avatars they chose when firing up the console.Nat Wolff’s nerdy, allergy-ridden high schooler Spencer enters the body of Dwayne Johnson to become Dr. Smolder Bravestone, a man with no weaknesses. Morgan Turner’s shy and unpopular Martha who becomes Karen Gillan’s Ruby Roundhouse, a powerful warrior and Lara Croft-type. Teenage jock Fridge starts out as Ser’Darius Blaine, only to turn into the diminutive Kevin Hart. And finally, popular Bethany transforms from Madison Iseman into Jack Black, the clumsy Professor Shelly Oberon. To put it lightly, this is a movie that really leans into the charms of playing against type.

We got to chat with the four main actors on the film’s Honolulu set (which is, incidentally, also where they filmed Jurassic Park) and watched a scene in which the characters figure out their new powers and abilities. Smolder, for instance, is fearless, super fast, good at climbing, and can use a boomerang like nobody’s business, not to mention the smoldering intensity for which he gets his name… which Johnson demonstrated a number of times. Johnson is used to playing physically powerful pseudo-supermen, and Smolder is definitely that. What we’re seeing in Jumanji, however, is a kid accustomed to relying on his intelligence discovering what it’s like to be physically imposing.

“It’s a lot of fun,” Johnson told us, “and a great challenge. So, the great challenge of me being who I am as this avatar, it’s Dr. Smolder Gravestone. Throughout the film, I just, well, smolder.”

If you’ve seen any of Kevin Hart’s movies or standup, you know he’s on board with playing the height thing for comedy. The twist this time is playing a character who’s new to being a little guy. Hart told us, “I think we put a lot of small innuendoes in here that people will be able to kind of wink at and understand and agree with.” That said, Hart was determined to find something strong and sincere in his comedic character. “I wanted to just be different,” he said. “I wanted to stand out. Not come off like a clown, but come off as a person who embraced this world of the jungle. This Jumanji-esque world. You get why this guy’s in there, from his backpack, to his short shorts, to all of the patches on his vest.”

In turning into Moose, Fridge discovers new strengths beyond the physical in himself. “That’s the guy that you technically want to be with when you’re in these situations, and you get why his presence is felt,” Hart said. “It’s not just about being funny.”

Karen Gillian is no stranger to action. She’s played Nebula in Guardians of the Galaxy and even faced a bit of action in her seasons on Doctor Who. But what’s new for Gillan about her Jumanji role is her lack of confidence. “She’s a bit of a geek,” Gillan said. “She’s very smart in school but not very good socially. She takes on the avatar [that] happens to be this really kickass karate expert, badass girl. She just does not know how to inhabit this body at all.”

It may surprise Gillan’s fans to learn that she relates more to Martha than to her avatar counterpart Ruby. “I don’t know why I keep on getting cast in roles where I have to do so many action sequences, because, honestly, I’ve got two left feet and I look like a piece of spaghetti trying to fight people,” she said. “I feel like I got cast because Jake [Kasdan], the director, could tell I was a bit of a nerd in high school. He said that and I was like, ‘You’re absolutely right.’”

As for Ruby Roundhouse’s special power, it may be the most fun of the bunch: dance fighting. “First off, I didn’t know what dance fighting was until this movie,” Gillan said. “I think we might have invented it. It was really fun. I had to do this seductive routine and basically kill two men. It was maybe the best day of my life. So much fun.”

Jack Black is of course known for his comedy, and slips from one character to another with ease in the same conversation, let alone across different movies. After making up songs about the film for half of our interview, he joked that this role, that of a 16-year-old girl, is probably closer to who he is than the dorky yet funny guys he plays in most of his films.

“In a weird way, I feel like it was the real life I was born to play,” Black said. “It was very easy to tap into my inner 16-year-old girl. I don’t know why. But just to have that power of attraction. It’s subtle, but when you know you’ve got it, you know you’ve got it. And it’s just a look, a subtle gesture, and you know you’ve got it.”
