The Dwayne Johnson Jumanji movie has seen its release date pushed back.

Originally the Jumanji sequel was going to be released July 2017, but now Dwayne Johnson has announced a December 2017 release date.

Dwayne Johnson took to his Instagram account to share the news about the new Jumanji release date:

"Right down Dwanta Claus lane.." Excited to share this great news: CHRISTMAS of 2017 comes early for our #JUMANJI SEQUEL. We were always slated to be released summer of 2017, but after months of shooting and editing our movie together, we realized we have a big family franchise on our hands, that's full of Christmas wish fulfillment, fun and heart.

Like so many of us, it's my FAVORITE time of the year and I LUV delivering holiday entertainment. From MOANA this Thanksgiving, to ROCK THE TROOPS this Christmas, to JUMANJI next Christmas! Calling Rudolph now to get our sleigh and fanny packs. #JUMANJI #SonyPictures #HereComesDwantaClaus CHRISTMAS 2017
