“Jumanji” star Alex Wolff recently shared his ideas for the franchise’s third film in an interview with The Hollywood Reporter.

What’s going on:

  • Wolff stars in the new series of “Jumanji” films along with Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, Kevin Hart, Jack Black and Karen Gillan. Wolff plays Spencer, a loveable loser who becomes a strong, bold character in the “Jumanji” game when he assumes the avatar of The Rock when the teenage main characters hop into the game.
  • The end of the most recent film — “Jumanji: The Next Level” — signaled that the elements of the “Jumanji” video game made it into the real world. Wolff told The Hollywood Reporter he hopes that is still the case for the rumored third film.
  • He said: “That better happen. That would be so amazing. I want that. Yeah, I think it would be full circle. To come back to the real world.”
  • His title idea? “‘Jumanji: Full Circle’? Yeah, it better be that. ‘Jumanji: Full Circle,’ I like that. The idea of all the kids, The Rock, Danny DeVito, Danny Glover, and everybody else in the real world makes me so unbelievably excited.”

Post-credit scene in ‘The Next Level’

  • The latest “Jumanji” film — titled “The Next Level” — had a post-credits scene where the in-game animals appear in real life, according to NME.
  • Director Jake Kasdan said his production team is still considering a title for the sequel.
