Trivia

Robin Williams admitted that he did not need to act startled for the scene where Van Pelt is shooting at him, as the blank gunfire was extremely loud on-set. See more »

Goofs

After Sarah gets rejected from the ATM, Van Pelt steals the game from Peter. In the rush, Peter steals it back and runs away. The driver of the second car (that almost hits him) appears to get out. However, after a cut scene of the stampeding animals, we see Peter run towards the open driver's door. As the camera turns, we see a foot under the door, which quickly retracts back into the car. The person is not seen inside the car, as Peter hides in the driver's seat as the animals crush the car. See more »

Not for those who have spent more time watching Star Wars than at the library.
31 March 1999 | by See all my reviews

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.
