When my husband told me that there was going to be a new Jumanji movie, I must confess that, like with Murder on the Orient Express, I was a little bit sceptical. After all, did it really need a remake? Especially now the late, great Robin Williams was no longer with us. These past few years have felt a little bit like Hollywood is out of ideas and that we are in a perpetual cycle of superhero stories as reboots.
Once the teaser trailers were released though, it was clear that this was going to be a totally different film to the original Jumanji and I started to look forward to it. Craig and I went to see it yesterday and both enjoyed it so much – it totally surpassed our expectations.
