I can’t believe they didn’t catch this!! CRAZY MOVIE MISTAKES! See the mistakes the producers missed when making Jumanji! Jumanji is a 1995 American fantasy adventure film about a supernatural board game that makes wild animals and other jungle hazards materialize upon each player’s move.
It was directed by Joe Johnston and is based on Chris Van Allsburg’s popular 1981 picture book of the same name. The special effects were provided by Industrial Light & Magic in computer graphics, and Amalgamated Dynamics with animatronics.
The film stars Robin Williams as Alan, a man who emerges from the game’s unseen jungle world, along with Kirsten Dunst as a girl named Judy Shepherd who plays the game with her brother, Peter Shepherd (Bradley Pierce), David Alan Grier as a hapless shoemaker-turned-police officer, Adam Hann-Byrd as Alan when he was a boy, Bonnie Hunt as the woman who played the game with Alan when they were children, and Jonathan Hyde in a dual role as both Alan’s father and Van Pelt, a big-game hunter intent on killing Alan–Van Pelt is patterned after Alan’s father. The cast also features Bebe Neuwirth as Judy and Peter’s aunt. It was shot in Keene, New Hampshire, where the story is set, North Berwick, Maine (the Parrish Shoes factory) and Vancouver, British Columbia. In 2005, a spiritual sequel to Jumanji, Zathura, was released.
