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".

"I often talk about mana (spirit) with you guys and the mana in this room/in this moment was extremely powerful," Johnson wrote on Instagram.

"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;)."

Johnson recounted the Kahu telling the group that it takes an entire team to produce a successful movie.

"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," he added.

Hart, Black, Gillan, and Nick Jonas's respective characters are still unknown.
