London [England], Sept. 3 (ANI): American action superstar Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson has enthralled his fans with a glimpse from his upcoming 'Jumanji' sequel.

The 'Fast 8' star recently took to Instagram to share a tentative look of his character, the smouldering Dr Bravestone, who appears to be an Indiana Jones' look alike explorer, reports Entertainment weekly.

Johnson poked fun through the caption, writing, "not sure where my pecs went," but the star also seemed very excited about the forthcoming project.

"This is gonna be fun," Johnson wrote, adding "Can't wait to play the game that plays you."

In continuation of the original 1995 released 'Jumanji', Johnson is set to take on the infamous board game alongside his Central Intelligence co-star Kevin Hart, Jack Black, Karen Gillan and Nick Jonas.

Though no official details have been revealed yet about the film's plot, but the 44-year-old actor has already assured his fans that he would work hard to honor the memory of Robin Williams, who starred in the acclaimed original.

"The love and respect I have for this man is boundless," Johnson wrote in a touching Instagram post earlier, adding, "You have my word, we will honor his name and the character of Alan Parrish will stand alone and be forever immortalized in the world of Jumanji in an earnest and cool way. I have an idea of what to do and I think his family will be proud."

Named this year's highest earning actor in Hollywood, The Rock will also star in Baywatch, directed by Seth Gordon. (ANI)
