There Is a Reason Karen Gillan Is Wearing Child-Sized Clothes in That 'Jumanji' Photo

A couple of days ago, The Rock debuted the first photo from the upcoming Jumanji reboot, and it raised some concerns, specifically why a female character Dwayne Johnson described as a “girl” who has “Chutzpah, guts, nerve and talent” and as a “girl” who is “bad ass” and as the “girl” who is playing the “most important role in the movie.”

But why was this bad-ass “girl” wearing little “girl’s” clothes?

Apparently, there is a reason for it, and presumably that reason is more than just, “Holy shit, Karen Gillan looks fiiiiiiiiine in a short skirt.”

The Rock reiterated the same to Jill Pantozzi over on Hitfix:

What could that reason be? I suspect that in the scene depicted they’re intentionally playing stock characters as a way to parody stock characters. Or maybe they’re playing safari dress up characters for a movie within a movie. Or maybe they’re playing characters in a 90’s board game. Another theory is that she’s playing a time-traveling grown-up version of Kristen Dunst’s character from the original film, still dressed in 90’s clothes.

The costumes, as Johnson says, are meant to be “vintage 90s” for a reason.

Meanwhile, Dwayne Johnson also released the first video from the set, and the Dad humor is pretty great.
