Jumanji


1h 40m 1995

Brief Synopsis

Because of the magically surreal and potentially lethal aspects of Jumanji, a board game that's intrigued its players for hundreds of years, few people want to play a second time. For you see, unless you complete the game, Jumanji takes over your world. Young Alan Parris discovered the ornate Jumanji board in 1969, when he was just twelve. When he sits down to play it for the first time with his reluctant friend Sarah, he's transported into the jungle realm of Jumanji, disappearing before Sarah's startled eyes. Because Sarah is too frightened to finish the game, Alan remains trapped in the rainforests of Jumanji for 26 years until two new children, Judy and Peter, sit down to play the game in the attic of Alan's childhood home. If Alan, Judy and Peter can find the now adult Sarah, they have a chance to finish the game--or risk their hometown being taken over by the exotic denizens of the seemingly unstoppable force called Jumanji forever.
