Jack Black talks about his retirement plan

The actor opened up about his future plans at a press conference for his upcoming movie Jumanji: The Next Level. While the first movie, Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle delves into the lives of teenagers, the sequel explores important themes around getting old.

 
When asked which would one he would pick, Black, said: "I often think that when I retire I will just play video games 24*7."
 
"Jumanji is a great game in the world. And when you play you often think who made this extraordinary game a possible plotline for the third part," he joked.
 
Having entered Hollywood back in 1984, Black has made a place for himself with projects like School of Rock, the Kung Fu Panda franchise, Shallow Hal, King Kong, The Holiday, Tropic Thunder and Gulliver's Travels.
 
The difference between Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle and its sequel is that the grandfathers (played by Danny DeVito and Danny Glover) of the two original players get transported into the game as Dwayne Johnson and Kevin Hart's avatars. Even Black's character will be portraying different personalities in the movie.
 
According to the source, in Jumanji: The Next Level the team is back but the game has changed. Black said, “I had a ball playing my new characters. I don't know about which one is my favorite as when I am doing it at the moment, I am thinking that I am killing it.”
 
Jumanji: The Next Level, directed by Jake Kasdan. It also stars Karen Gillan, Danny DeVito, Danny Glover, Awkwafina, and Nick Jonas amongst others.
 
Entertainment company India will release Jumanji: The Next Level on December 13, 2019, in Hindi, English, Tamil, and Telugu.
