He may be “The Rock” but he’s a big softy on the inside and always has time for a moment of collective reflection.

The production crew for Jumanji took a second to pause and be thankful before they started for the Hawaii production.

Dwayne Johnson documented and shared a clip on Instagram of the group prayer.

Himself, Kevin Hart, Karen Gillan, director Jake Kasdan, the film’s crew and a Hawaiian Kahu (priest) took a moment to bless “our film with powerful aloha spirit of laughter, enjoyment and love”.

Before we embark our #JUMANJI journey here in Hawaii, we gathered our entire cast (here with me are Jack Black, Kevin Hart, our director Jake Kasdan and Karen Gillian) and crew together as our Hawaiian Kahu (priest) Cordell Keka blesses our film with powerful aloha spirit of laughter, enjoyment and love. I often talk about mana (spirit) with you guys and the mana in this room/in this moment was extremely powerful – it can take your breath away and give you goosebumps like crazy. (I was low key ready to run thru a wall in this moment;). Our Kahu eloquently spoke and reminded us that even though our faces are the ones on screen, it takes an AMAZING CREW OF EVERYONE to make this movie work. And when we get tired from long work hours to always remember the joy, laughter and fun our movie will bring to families around the world. So simple, but such a great reminder to keep that perspective of bringing joy and fun to families. Very cool. Thank you Kahu Cordell Keka for this powerful blessing, thank you Hawaii – proud to be back home and THANK YOU in advance to our hard working crew. #JUMANJI #OurHawaiianBlessing #Mana #LetsShoot
