Alan Parrish disappeared from his home after discovering a mysterious board game, Jumanji. Twenty six years, later, two orphaned children move to his old home with their aunt, and find the game in the attic. When they begin to play, they unleash chaos as the game conjures jungle animals, killer vines – and an adult Alan (Robin Williams). With the help of Alan’s childhood friend Sarah, they must finish playing the game before the magical creatures it has created destroy their town.

THEY SAY: “The CGI creeping vines, capering monkeys, attacking alligators, fluttering bats, hungry lions and stampeding hordes are genuinely amazing: as hyper-real and odd looking as Van Allsburg’s original illustrations.” (Kim Newman, EmpireOnline)
WE SAY: This film is funny, heart-warming, exciting – and a complete nostalgia trip. It now possesses a sort of ‘alternative classic’ status, and the charming story at its core means it can hold its ground in today’s world of CGI-dominated movies.
