With the next installment of the Jumanji franchise hitting theaters on December 13, 2019, Sony Pictures Consumer Products (SPCP) has announced the worldwide launch of the licensing and merchandising program for Jumanji: The Next Level.
“We’re excited for our stellar lineup of products, collaborations, and experiences that will be supporting the release of Jumanji: The Next Level,” said Jamie Stevens, Executive Vice President, Sony Pictures Consumer Products. “Jumanji is a multi-generational franchise, so we’re delighted to provide the film’s passionate fans of all ages with several creative products to extend and embrace the Jumanji experience.”
Leading the charge on the global collection is the Jumanji-inspired video game. Outright Games’ Jumanji: The Video Game features storylines influenced by the new film and is currently available on PC and game consoles, PS4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch. Additionally, fans can climb up steep cliffs and free-fall off waterfalls from their cell phones, as SPCP teams up with TabTale for the mobile game Jumanji: Epic Run. The freemium game will be available on both iOS and Android this December.
The Jumanji Wild Kingdom Toy Collection from Lanard Toys will feature some of the world’s most ferocious wild animals. This collection will be sold exclusively in the U.S. at Wal-Mart and Walmart.com. For board game enthusiasts, Cardinal Games will welcome players back into the jungle with their newest game, Jumanji: Falcon Jewel Battle.
In addition to toys and collectibles, Bioworld and Fifth Sun have joined the licensee team to support Jumanji with an array of fashion items that include t-shirts, sportswear, sleepwear, and tote bags. Products will be featured at Box Lunch and online at Walmart and Amazon.
