Scroggins’ Biplane in Jumanji: The Next Level

Our crew at Scroggins Aviation would like to thank the producers for giving us the opportunity to work on Jumanji: The Next Level and for supplying them with our Russian made Antonov An-2 biplane for the making of the film.  

Scroggins was contracted by the producers to supply the An2 and make several changes to the airframe. Our team made these changes by cutting down the bulkhead wall between pilots compartment into the main cabin, added two wild (removable) fuselage wall side panels for ease of camera angles, painted the interior and exterior, added several functional cockpit gauges in the instrument panel which would work on command by an operator, wild windows and assisted with special effects in the underbelly drop down ramp which the Jumanji characters fell from during the scene.


Jumanji: The Next Level was released in theaters on December 13, 2019.  It is now available on Blu-ray.
