In 1969, twelve-year old Alan Parrish finds a board game called Jumanji, and he and Sarah Whittle play it that night. When the game board reads "In the jungle you must wait until the dice read five or eight," Alan is suddenly pulled into the game. Twenty-six years later, the Shepherd kids find this game. One of them rolls a 5 and Alan Parrish comes back, but he is soon forced to find Sarah and finish the game.
Well, I didn't know! It's just the roll of the dice!
Run! It's a stampede!
"In the jungle you must wait till the dice read five or eight."
What happened to you? You shave with a piece of glass?
What happened to you? The Clampetts had a yard sale?
Alan, you wrestled an alligator for me.
It was a crocodile. Alligators don't have that little fringe on their hind legs.
Sam Parrish/Van Pelt
