Jumanji: The Next Level Has Ties To New Hampshire
Over the weekend, Jumanji: The Next Level, debuted in theaters. As expected, it easily claimed the number one spot at the box office, raking in an estimated $60.1 million.
If you're new to the Jumanji movie franchise, here's something you might not know - all of the Jumanji movies have ties to New Hampshire. And the original includes scenes shot in several New England communities, including towns in New Hampshire and Maine.
According to the original film's Wikipedia page, the film is centered on a boy in the fictional town of Brantford, New Hampshire, who discovers a chest that was buried by two boys one hundred years prior. The original film was shot in several locations, including Keene, New Hampshire and North Berwick, Maine.
Although it doesn't appear that any scenes from either of the new Jumanji movies were shot in New England, the town that the story begins is still Brantford.
