Los Angeles - Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson has promised the upcoming Jumanji movie will be a sequel, not a reboot.

The 44-year-old actor, who is also acting as co-producer on the upcoming film, is looking forward to starting work on the project with Jack Black and his Central Intelligence co-star Kevin Hart, but he has stressed it is not a remake of the popular 1995 movie, which starred the late Robin Williams.

He wrote on Instagram: "In two weeks I'll reunite with ol' friends Kevin Hart & Jack Black and we have the honor to introduce a whole new generation to the amazing world of #JUMANJI. *(for the record we are NOT making a reboot, but rather a continuation of the awesome JUMANJI story). It's also crazy to me how much me, Kev and Jack look like triplets when we're together. Man this is gonna be FUN. (sic)"

The actor previously promised the new movie will honour Robin and his character Alan Parrish.

Meanwhile Kevin Hart has been egging his co-star Johnson on to get into shape.

The actor had some choice words for Johnson in an Instagram video.

Not to be outdone Johnson responded in kind to Hart. 

Jumanji is set to hit cinema screens next July.
