Plot summary

What is Jumanji: The Next Level movie plot?

Here is a short review of "Jumanji: The Next Level" movie plot summary.

Two to three years after the previous film, Spencer Gilpin (Alex Wolff), Anthony "Fridge" Johnson (Ser'Darius Blain), Martha Kaply (Morgan Turner), and Bethany Walker (Madison Iseman) go to separate colleges, but plan to meet up over Christmas break. The night before Spencer, feeling despondent, gets out Jumanji. When he doesn't show, his friends visit his mother's, and are greeted by Spencer's grandfather Eddie (Danny DeVito) and visiting Eddie's former friend/business partner Milo Walker (Danny Glover). Realizing he has gone into the game, Fridge, Martha, Eddie and Milo follow, leaving Bethany behind.
Inside the game, Martha is Ruby Roundhouse (Karen Gillan), the same avatar as in the prior movie. Fridge becomes Professor Sheldon Oberon (Jack Black) while Eddie and Milo become Dr. Smolder Bravestone (Dwayne Johnson) and Franklin "Mouse" Finbar (Kevin Hart).
Giving Eddie and Milo Jumanji's rules, they encounter non-player character Nigel Billingsley (Rhys Darby), the game guide, who reveals that Jumanji is suffering from a massive drought. To leave the game, they must end the drought by recovering a magical necklace known as the Falcon Heart, stolen by warlord Jurgen the Brutal (Rory McCann). Meanwhile, Bethany, still out of the game and in the real world, finds Jumanji player Alex Vreeke (Colin Hanks) for help.
Transported to a desert to pursue Jurgen, and narrowly escaping a ostrich flock, they encounter Spencer, operating with a new avatar, Ming Fleetfoot (Awkwafina), a skilled thief. Apologizing for their predicament, Spencer joins them.
While attempting to escape the desert, they face new challenges and problems, along with collecting a Jumanji Berry, and discovering a pool of glowing green water that allows them to switch avatars. Meanwhile, Eddie bickers with Milo, revealing their friendship ended when Milo sold their diner behind Eddie's back, forcing him into retirement. Traveling to a forest beyond the desert, the group crosses a series of rope bridges, while being attacked by a group of mandrills.
