When Judy and Peter finally find the Jumanji board in the attic, another old game - this time from the '60s - reads: 'PASSWORD'. See more »
When Peter is hanging from the branch to get the game out of
the water, you can see that "Jumanji" is face down. But when they go to a shot of Peter's face you can see that it is face up. See more »
Listen, I know you're upset and all, but I kind of feel we should finish the game.
We? Why do you need me?
Well, just in case any scary stuff comes out. Plus, there's a lion in my aunt's bedroom. What am I supposed to do about that?
What do I look like, a Ringling Brother?
But she'll be home soon!

Not for those who have spent more time watching Star Wars than at the library.
The hauntingly beautiful illustrations of the children's book are animated in this unique adventure for the entire family. Artistic at each turn this movie is probably not meant for those who have spent more time watching Star Wars than at the library. At least one reviewer could not understand why the computer images were not as "realistic" as in other computer generated animated films. That would be like asking why Roger Rabbit does not look like a real rabbit. They are not supposed to be real. The characters of Jumanji have literally popped out of the children's illustrations full of life and imagination. Similar to Roger Rabbit it meshes two different worlds together. Have fun. Read the book. Watch the movie. Play the game.
