We were approached by Sony pictures to provide some suitable vintage props for the remake of the 1990’s classic JUMANJI movie which originally starred the late Robin Williams. Filmed earlier this year on location in Hawaii and starring Dwayne Johnson, Jack Black, Karen Gillan and Kevin Hart, it’s set to be a rip-roaring super-natural jungle adventure based on the original board-game-becomes-reality story, but this time where the characters are stuck inside a retro computer game found in a basement.
The movie houses are always tight-lipped about exactly what or who the props will be for, but we think they could be for Jack Black’s character as a pith-helmeted Victorian jungle explorer:
UPS delivered the goods again for us taking a large box from our workshop to the temporary production HQ location set up in Hawaii ahead of filming in under 48 hours, door to door. Quite amazing really when you think of how far that is and all the stops a package has to make for a journey like that. Picked up from our workshops in rural Somerset, to the local depot, to the U.K. sorting hub in Gosport, then to Gatwick airport, across the Atlantic, through customs at Chicago airport, from Chicago out to the middle of the Pacific Ocean to Hawaii, from the airport to local depot, and safely without damage, delay or incident to the film production HQ. That’s over 7,000 miles, in less than 48 hours.
The official trailer is just out (here) and the movie is set for release at the end of 2017. Meanwhile here’s a few photos released from the set, or via Dwayne Johnson’s Instagram feed:
