The first official trailer for the Jumanji reboot, Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle, is here. If you were expecting a rehash of the 1995 Robin Williams' classic, though, you should probably sit down before you watch it.

Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle takes the basic Jumanji concept (kids find a game that sucks them into a jungle adventure) and updates it for 2017 in a big way.

Things start out very Breakfast Club-y. A group of four very different teens end up in detention together. As punishment, they're forced to clean out the school basement, where they find the magical game. They plug it in and choose their avatars (who are all very different from the teens in real life) and the next thing you know, they're in the game—as Dwayne Johnson, Jack Black, Kevin Hart, and Karen Gillan.

Yes, it sounds weird and a little complicated, but that's only because it is. But then, it's a movie about an enchanted game that brings jungle adventures to life, so what can we really expect?
