In a recent interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Gillan assures fans that her look does serves a purpose in the story in the upcoming Jumanji film
“I’ve experienced something similar when I worked on ‘Doctor Who’ and there was such an uproar about my costume when that was first revealed, so I thought it was happening all over again. But I have to say, I’d never take on a role that was truly gratuitous for no reason. There’s a really valid reason why she’s wearing that. My character is really not happy about it!” she said.
You’ll remember last year Gillan took to twitter to put fans at ease over the revealing look, assuring them that the costume does serve a purpose and that she is not just being used to draw in the crowds.

Jumanji is set to hit the big screens in December of this year, and I for one am looking forward to seeing this all star cast bring back to life a childhood favorite!
