The reboot follows four kids stuck in detention as they come across a video game console while cleaning out their school's basement. After selecting their characters -- Dr. Smolder Bravestone (Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson), Franklin "Moose" Finbar (Kevin Hart), Ruby Roundhouse (Karen Gillan) and Professor Shelly Oberon (Jack Black) -- they're sucked into the screen.
And While the original Robin Williams' film brought the game's dangers to the real world, this movie sees its players transported into a video game.
Fans on Twitter are calling the movie out for being nothing like the original, saying "this is a disgrace to the original and to the late Robin Williams" and "how many more of my childhood movies are going to be ruined?

Jumanji and The Mummy are starting a new trend where they make completely new movie concepts and call them reboots for name recognition.— alex tumay (@alextumay) June 29, 2017
They completely changed the story of Jumanji, Teens get sucked into a video game and control avatars which is the Rock and others.. 😂— H2O Delirious (@H2ODelirious) June 29, 2017
Jumanji: it's 2017. Tabletop games are LAME. what do the kids like? Videogames. Die in the game, die in real life— Justin Bunka (@justin_bunka) June 29, 2017
Secondly. I am going to kill whomever came up with this new Jumanji. It is not Jumanji it is Michael Bay Jungle Fast and Furious.— Scott G (@LegendOfAMyth) June 29, 2017

The new Jumanji trailer doesn't look bad.... but it doesn't feel like Jumanji at all.— Jahova (@JahovasWitniss) June 29, 2017

Somehow the least believable part of the Jumanji trailer is an Atari-era machine has 16-bit graphics and four simultaneous players.— Mike Drucker (@MikeDrucker) June 29, 2017
Thought it was just me. Disliked both, but found the Jumanji trailer kind of a slap in the face to the original.— Roger White (@mr_rawhite) June 29, 2017

The first flaw of the new Jumanji trailer is there are 4 controllers on an old console.— Eddie Chisham (@EddieChisham) June 29, 2017
