That 'Jumanji' Remake Officially Has A Release Date

Get ready for another stampede.

Yup, Sony is officially remaking "Jumanji" -- and it's your 2016 Christmas present. If you're of the anti-remake mindset, that news may make you as angry as a troop of monkeys destroying a kitchen. But then again, it's hard to deny that the 1995 fantasy movie could benefit from some better CGI in the remake.

On Wednesday, Sony Pictures released its film slate through 2019 with release dates for 16 new films, including the new "Jumanji," "Bad Boys 3" and "4," and a new date for Paul Feig's "Ghostbusters." News of a "Jumanji" remake first broke in 2012 when Sony announced plans to update the Robin Williams fantasy film for the present. Now you can expect to see a modern revamp of the movie on Christmas Day in 2016 -- here's to hoping they release an updated version of the board game as well. Check out the full slate of release dates below, via Variety.
