The adventurous quest of five friends in Jumanji’s world begins when Spencer decides to enter Jumanji again, hoping to become Dr. Bravestones. He felt tired of living in a useless reality. Without knowing his action’s outcomes, he got sucked into the game and became a low-life avatar character named Ming Fleetfoot, a Pick-pocket. Ming Fleetfoot’s character is a new avatar that doesn’t exist in Jumanji’s previous version, leaving himself clueless. Spencer, absent at the gathering, makes his four best friends Martha, Fridge, and Bethany, visit him at his house. They were all surprised when they found out Jumanji games are on, and Spencer is missing. Not too long after that, Martha and Fridge, with Spencer’s grandfather, Eddie, and his friends Milo, got drawn into Jumanji’s games, leaving Bethany. Things got more interesting as these times; they are randomly selected for their character. Jumanji Worlds is on a different level, and they all got new abilities and weaknesses in their avatar character. Martha continues her Ruby Roundhouse character, while Fridge is furious as he was chosen as the “Map guy,” Oberon. Eddie was selected as Dr. Bravestones, a fearless warrior, while Milo became Mouse, Zoology with the ability to talk to animals. Eddie and Milo’s confusion as they landed in the Jumanji world and embarked on a new journey will make you laugh the entire movie. The only way to get out of these games is by winning. With three bars on the wrist, each bar represents the avatar character’s life; they conquered each quest together. Despite the difficulties, death, and danger, they counter each level with a victory. As they all promise never to come back to Jumanji again, Spencer’s mom got sucked into the Jumanji games, which gives us the idea of Jumanji 3 is coming.
