In spite of the events in the film and where it was set and filmed, New Hampshire is one of the few U.S. states to not have a zoo. See more »
When the mosquito is on the windshield, Alan refers to it as "he". Only female mosquitoes bite, not males. However arguably, many people do not know this and considering Allan never even finished the sixth grade, it could be presumed that he didn't know either (or the other two children for that matter).

"At night they fly, you better run / These winged things are not much fun."

What was that?

I - I don't know.

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.
