Don’t be so quick to judge, people!

A couple of days ago, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson took to Instagram to share the first look at all the main characters from his upcoming flick Jumanji.

The action hero, who posed for the pic with costars Jack Black, Kevin Hart, and Karen Gillan captioned the pic:

“EXCLUSIVE FIRST LOOK:#JUMANJI Our dope 90’s vintage costumes will all make sense when our plot’s revealed. Truuuuuust me├░┼╕╦£ΓÇÜ├░┼╕ΓÇÿ┼á├░┼╕┬Å┬╛.The journey continues..”Moose Finbar” (Kevin Hart). “Ruby Roundhouse” (Karen Gillan). “Professor Shelly Oberon” (Jack Black). “Dr. Smolder Bravestone” ’cause well.. he smolders.”

Well after the post, Gillan received quite a bit of backlash online for wearing what some deemed as a revealing, skimpy, and non-functional outfit — something pretty backward and sexist for a movie coming out in 2017!

But the former Doctor Who star has defended herself as she tweeted out:


“A reason” huh? Besides fanservice??

The Rock also tweeted:

Seems to go right along with the Fast 8 star’s original caption…

Are YOU buying their defense?? Is there be a legit reason for the stereotypically sexist costume??

We’re hoping there’s more to these characters than meets the eye. We mean, “Dr. Smolder Bravestone”? “Ruby Roundhouse”? They sound like old toys…

Could the stars be playing Jumanji game pieces??

Whatever the explanation, we do have to say we agree with one fan’s suggestion for the next pic. @CarlyLane tweeted:

Ha! We’d definitely love that!

Are you excited to jump back into the world of Jumanji when it drops lands in theaters July 28, 2017?!
