Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle

Sony Pictures

The next "Jumanji" adventure is going to be full of familiar faces.

Several "Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle" stars have agreed to reprise their roles in the next film, and the latest is Nick Jonas, according to The Hollywood Reporter. The singer-slash-actor joins the sequel's previously announced stars Dwayne Johnson, Kevin Hart, Jack Black, and Karen Gillan. Furthermore, the actors who played their teen characters -- Ser'Darius Blain, Alex Wolff, Madison Iseman, and Morgan Turner -- are also set to return.

"Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle" centers on a group of four teens who play the Jumanji video game and find themselves transported into its world and into the body of avatars. Jonas's character is Alex, a man who has been trapped in the game for years in the body of an avatar named Jefferson "Seaplane" McDonough. Plot details for the sequel haven't been revealed, so we don't know yet how he ties into the new story from writers Jake Kasdan, Jeff Pinkner, and Scott Rosenberg.

In addition to all the returning stars in the upcoming "Jumanji" sequel, there will be franchise newcomers, too. Actors Awkwafina ("Crazy Rich Asians"), Donald Glover ("Solo: A Star Wars Story"), and Danny DeVito ("It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia") are all joining for what Johnson has teased is "dynamite."

It looks like it's the more the merrier in the jungle.
