The film has a Marvel comics connection: Scarlett Johansson whom auditioned for Judy Shepherd would later go on to play Natasha Romanoff/Black Widow in the MCU. Kirsten Dunst herself would go on to play Mary Jane Watson in Spider-Man (2002) and it's 2 sequels and future Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle (2017) star Karen Gillan whom played Martha/Ruby Roundhouse in the sequel would play Nebula in Guardians of the Galaxy (2014). Guardians of the Galaxy: Vol. 2 (2017) and Avengers: Infinity War (2018). See more »
In scenes where Alan, Sarah, Judy and Peter were playing the game in the house, none of them hear the monkeys and the lion messing around inside. See more »
There is only one way to describe Jumanji: excellent. The plot is very, original, with outstanding concepts packed into each individual scene. After viewing this movie, the wild side of the jungle gets into you, making you want to dare to play the game. Although the computer animation may not look all that real, I still give this movie a 10/10, for an outstanding plot, casting, and spirit, which any great movie has.
