When it was first announced that there were plans to make a new Jumanji movie, fans around the world were unsure of the point of it, insisting that it will not be a patch on the original movie and will be an absolute flop. However, there is a rather interesting cast which has been brought together for the new Jumanji movie, including the actor and musician Jack Black.
As you could probably have already imagined and expected, not only is Jack Black set to appear in the Jumanji movie but he has also been working on a new song for the film. While Jack has claimed that he cannot give too much away about the new song, he has admitted that it will be a collaboration with Nick Jonas, while also teasing some of the lyrics from the new track.
During an interview with Collider, Black revealed, " I am working on one. I don’t know if I want to release it to the public just yet, but I can give you a little taste. It goes, (sings) Jumaaanji. It’s the jungle inside your soul. Somewhere deep inside at the end of the wild. Jumaaaanji. (talks normally again) Okay that’s all you get. That’s a lot. I can’t help it. I can never hold a secret. When it’s something so juicy and delicious, I have to let it leak."
He added, "And then it goes, (sings) Jumaaaanji, jumanji, jumaaaanji, jumanji, jumaaaanji, jumanji, jumaaanji, jumanji, jumaaaaaaaanji. (talks normally again) But you know, it’s a collaboration with Nick Jonas. Don’t tell my partner Kyle Gass, Tenacious D. He will kill me in my sleep with a ball-peen hammer if he finds out that I have collaborated with a new rockstar."
As for the movie itself, Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle is due for release on December 20 in both the US and the UK.
