Jumanji Details

FULL SYNOPSIS

Jumanji is a visually elaborate fantasy about an enchanted board game that opens a magical portal to a jungle universe. Two young children, Judy ([[Performer~P20669~Kirsten Dunst~kirstendunst]]) and Peter ([[Performer~P232867~Bradley Pierce~bradleypierce]]), discover the game in an abandoned home and suddenly are greeted by Alan ([[Performer~P116900~Robin Williams~robinwilliams]]), an adult who has spent his life trapped inside the game since playing it at age 12. Alan's only hope for freedom involves finishing the game, but this proves rather dangerous, as Judy, Peter, and Alan find themselves running for their lives from huge rhinoceroses, evil monkeys, vicious lions, and other terrifying jungle beasts. Director [[Performer~P96246~Joe Johnston~joejohnston]], whose special-effects background previously came to good use in [[Feature~V22985~Honey, I Shrunk the Kids~honeyishrunkthekids]], used groundbreaking computer imagery to simulate the thrills. ~ Judd Blaise, Rovi
