The Next Level brings all the characters back into the game, but the world of Jumanji has changed from what they experienced before. Unknown to his friends, Spencer kept the pieces of the Jumanji video game and one day repaired the system in the basement of his grandfather's house. When Spencer's friends Bethany, Fridge, and Martha arrive, they find Spencer missing and the game running and decide to re-enter Jumanji to save him. Spencer's grandfather Eddie and his friend Milo Walker hear the commotion and inadvertently get sucked into the game too before any of Spencer's friends can select their avatars. With a new quest offered to them by Nigel Billingsley who claims that one of them will not make it out of this adventure alive, the teenaged friends must help Eddie and Milo get used to their in-game avatars, get them to help find Spencer who is in the body of new avatar Ming, and escape Jumanji again, once and for all.
