The more levels the avatar progresses through, the faster the speed will become and hazards will be harder to avoid. Collecting powerups will enable the avatar to ride an Elephant for brief periods and render them invincible.

Sequel

Main Article: Jumanji 3 (working title)

Trivia

  • Out of respect to the late Robin Williams his character Alan Parrish from the original movie is referenced, showing a shelter he built and lived in during his 26-year imprisonment in Jumanji. Also, one of the game's clues is an elephant idol that resembles Jumanji's old game board elephant token which Alan used in the 1995 film.
    • When Jumanji is taken to the Vreeke House, the film's score includes a snippet of the 1995 Jumanji film's "menacing child's play" score. This can be seen as a respectful tribute to the late James Horner who composed the original film's score.
  • Just like it's 1995 predecessor, as the film credits draw to a close, Jumanji's drumbeats can be heard, indicating that Jumanji will return to be played again.
  • Originally Tom Holland was cast as Seaplane McDonough, but had to drop out due to scheduling conflicts with Spider-Man: Homecoming (2017). So Nick Jonas was cast in his place.
  • The film's composer, Henry Jackman composed the soundtrack for the game Uncharted 4: A Thief's End. A poster for the game can be seen in Spencer's room.
  • Despite playing teens in the movie, three of the actors are actually all grown up.
    • Alex Wolff and Madison Iseman each became a full-fledged adult, months before the film was released.
    • Ser'Darius Blain (born on March 10, 1987) was 30 when the film premiered in theatres and was 31 when it was released on home video.
    • Morgan Turner is the only natural teenager who worked on the film.
