Back in April, Johnson took to Instagram to share a heartfelt moment he had with a fan on the set of the forthcoming film. 

The emotional interaction between the two occurred after the fan shared a touching story about his mother with Johnson.

The video was posted to Instagram with the caption, “As a man, it’s a whole other level when you hold another grown man with tears in his eyes. I’ve held a few. A few have held me. This man lost his mama and she used to compare us. You’re right brother, she’s looking down at us – and she’s proud of you. Also, your son’s a good hearted kid. Kept his composure as he tells me a difficult story. We may or may never cross paths again, but just know that moments like this mean the world to me. #BestPartOfFame  #BestFansInTheWorld”

You can check out the heartfelt video below.

Johnson later posted another one tugging on our hearstrings as he shared his appreciation for Jumanji: The Next Level director Jake Kasdan.

“Such a pleasure collaborating, creating, producing and putting in the work with this guy – who can also clearly double as my twin. Our JUMANJI director and writer, Jake Kasdan.

Very impressed with Jake’s ability to draw out nuance, fun & HEART as a director, but what’s doubly impressive is he manages to do it with multiple actors who are all playing teenagers with very distinct and often pain in the ass 😂🤦🏽‍♂️ personalities. Excited for you guys to see our new JUMANJI and what Jake Kasdan delivers. He’s a good friend, the real deal and will always be bigger than @kevinhart4real. THIS CHRISTMAS.”
