Sarà la splendida attrice britannica Karen Gillan a interpretare la protagonista femminile del sequel/reboot di Jumanji. Ad annunciarlo è stato l’inesauribile Dwayne Johnson direttamente dal suo account Instagram.
La Gillan è conosciuta al pubblico per il ruolo di Amy Pond nella serie fantascientifica Doctor Who e per il cinecomic Marvel Guardiani della Galassia, dove interpreta Nebula, personaggio che riporterà sul grande schermo in Guardiani della Galassia Vol. 2 e Avengers: Infinity War.

Between myself, @kevinhart4real Jack Black and @NickJonas we've searched far and wide to find the one person to complete our #JUMANJI family. This isn't just any role, but in many ways the most important role of the movie. We had to find a girl. But not just any girl. A girl who has "Chutzpah". Guts, nerve and talent to stand her ground and hold her own against Nick's cool rockstar ways, Jack's relentless energy and genius, Kevin's masterful timing and skills and the big, brown, bald tattooed guy who just simply stands there and oooooozes smoldering, captivating, sizzling, can't take your eyes off this brilliant manly man.. never mind I got drunk on the ol' DJ kool aid again. Ladies and gentlemen, I'm proud to announce a girl who's playing the most important role in our movie – the talented, beautiful and down for a Scottish fight at any time, Ms @KarenGillanOfficial. And yes, this is the girl who is so bad ass she shaved her freaking head for Guardians of the Galaxy. We start production next month in Hawaii and as many of you already know, this isn't a remake or reboot, but a continuation of the awesome JUMANJI story we love. Jake "The Snake" Kasdan directing, Matt "OG" Tolmach producing. Yup, I give everyone nicknames. The adventure and fun continues… #JUMANJI #KarenGillan #RESPECT #GingerTough
