How The New Jumanji Movie Is Paying Tribute To Robin Williams

Fans of the 1995 original Jumanji movie will love this tribute to Robin Williams.

The actor died at age 63 in 2014, but his character's legacy will live on in the new Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle, premiering in theaters this Christmas.

Jack Black explained to The Hollywood Reporter how the movie will pay tribute to Williams. "We're exploring this jungle and trying to conquer the game; it's life or death," he said. "But while we're there, we find clues left behind by [Williams' character Alan Parrish]. He built up a full-blown jungle house, similar to a Swiss Family Robinson situation," he said. "It's like he's there helping us without actually being there."

Along with Black, the movie stars Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson, Bobby Cannavale, Karen Gillan, Kevin Hart and Nick Jonas.

Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle is in theaters Dec. 20.
