Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle is a 2017 American fantasy adventure comedy film directed by Jake Kasdan, co-written by Chris McKenna, Erik Sommers, Scott Rosenberg, and Jeff Pinkner, and starring Dwayne Johnson, Jack Black, Kevin Hart, Karen Gillan, Nick Jonas, and Bobby Cannavale. It is the third installment of the Jumanji franchise, after Zathura: A Space Adventure (2005) and a standalone sequel to Jumanji (1995), based on the 1981 children's book of the same name by Chris Van Allsburg. The story focuses on a group of teenagers who come across Jumanji—now transformed into a video game—twenty-one years after the events of the 1995 film. They find themselves trapped in the game as a set of avatars, seeking to complete a quest alongside another player who has been trapped since 1996.

Principal photography began in Honolulu in September 2016 and ended in Atlanta in December, with the film containing notable references to the first film as a tribute to its lead actor Robin Williams. Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle premiered at the Grand Rex in Paris on December 5, 2017, and was theatrically released in the United States on December 20, in RealD 3D, IMAX 3D, Dolby Cinema, IMAX, and 4DX formats by Sony Pictures Releasing under its Columbia Pictures label. The film received generally positive reviews from critics, who called it a "pleasant surprise" and praised the cast. The film grossed over $962 million worldwide, becoming the fifth-highest-grossing film of 2017.

A sequel, Jumanji: The Next Level, was released on December 13, 2019 in the United States.
