After twenty years, the four students at the Brantford High School were placed in the detention together: Gilpin, who was seized with writing essays for the previous buddy, Anthony Johnson or Fridge who was in detention for plagiarism, while Martha Kaply and Bethany Walker have both insulted their respective professors during class. They had been mocked for their actions, and these almost expelled them, but instead they got another punishment. Being assigned by their school’s principal in the clear out the basement, the four of them discovered the Jumanji, the multiplayer action and adventure computer game. One of the video game avatars, playable characters is not accessible.
They locate themselves inside a jungle, and now in the shape of the game avatars.

They soon understand that they were in a video game, where each of them had only three lives. If they will lose all the three, then, they will die. Each of the avatars also came out with weaknesses and particular skills.
The Writers View:
Unsurprisingly, Jumanji, Welcome to Jungle is simply a video game movie that is best made ever. Everyone that followed movies, even distantly knows that is not the tough task to achieve, but Jumanji sincerely takes the title from the viewers by being armed, self-aware, with compelling performances, and a definite fun and active tone from the beginning to the end. Also, instead of just restarting again a beloved movie from more than 20 years ago, this sequel feels like a standalone movie, but in another way that it gave honor to the legacy where it started with the late Robin Williams led movie of the 1990.
