The First Trailer for Jumanji: The Next Level Is Here

Way back, in 1997, there was a little movie called Face/Off. Starring Nick Cage and John Travolta as a terrorist and FBI agent (respectively) who swap faces, it gave us two meme-worthy performances that no other body-switcheroo movie since has come close to matching.

That is, until Jumanji: The Next Level, which places Danny DeVito in the body of the Rock.

Released on Monday, the first Jumanji: The Next Level trailer quickly sets up its premise—a lonely Spencer has gotten himself sucked back into the game—before unleashing its truly unhinged identity-swapping goodness. When Spencer’s friends head into Jumanji to bring him back, his grandpa Eddie (DeVito) and friend/frenemy Milo Walker (Danny Glover) wind up on the rescue team as well. Eddie winds up playing as Dr. Smolder Bravestone (Dwayne Johnson), Spencer’s former avatar, with Milo as Franklin “Mouse” Finbar (Kevin Hart). The rest of the trailer has to be seen to be believed, but let’s just say that Dwayne Johnson does one terrifyingly accurate Danny DeVito impression.

Jumanji: The Next Level will arrive in theaters on Christmas.
