Jumanji: The Next Level

Trivia: The film had a surprisingly fast production schedule. While the movie was announced shortly after the previous film, filming didn't begin until the end of January, 2019. The movie wrapped in May - only seven months before the release. By contrast, the previous film, "Welcome to the Jungle," wrapped filming a full year before release.


Trivia: The picture of Milo and Eddie (Danny Glover and Danny DeVito) seen at the end in Nora's are real photos of Glover and DeVito, just photoshopped to be holding menus and to look like they're together in a restaurant. The photos of them comes from a 2008 fundraiser for Paul Newman's children's camp (The Painted Turtle) that doubled as a tribute to Newman, who had passed away a month prior to the event. Both men were in attendance.


Trivia: The film is often referred to as "Jumanji 2" in articles and publications, as it is a sequel to the 2017 film "Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle." However, it's actually technically the fourth film in the series. The series starts with 1995's "Jumanji," followed by 2005's "Zathura: A Space Adventure" (which has been confirmed to take place in the same universe), followed by 2017's "Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle," followed by this film.


Trivia: Stay tuned during the credits - there's a bonus scene after the first few roll.


Continuity mistake: When Spencer is talking to his grandfather about Martha before going to sleep, Spencer has his right hand on his chest close to his neck. When the camera cuts to an open shot, both arms are down close to his sides, and then when it cuts back to a closeup, the hand is back again on his chest.

More quotes from Jumanji: The Next Level

Question: What does "follow the flame to the desert fruit" mean?

Answer: In the building with the Jumanji berry tree, there were flames on the wall. By following the flames on the wall, Ruby was able to get to the tree, rather than try to cross the waters somehow.


Answer: The flame is Bravestone's "old flame" the Lady in Red, who leads them to the desert fruit, the Jumanji Berry.

That's what the characters thought it was, but that's not what the clue entirely was.
