Robin Williams and Kirsten Dunst star in this blockbuster hit and critical favorite that combines magical special effects with an entrancing mix of fantasy, adventure, and comedy. Young Alan Parrish sits down as a young boy to play a game with his friend, Sarah, and on a roll of the dice is mysteriously transported into the strange jungle realm of Jumanji. There he remains trapped for 26 years, until two newly orphaned children, Judy (Dunst) and Peter (Bradley Pierce), playing in the attic of Alan’s childhood home, free the now-adult Alan (Williams) from the game’s clutches.

Among other effects, ILM was tasked with creating a stampede of rhinos, elephants, and birds, and mischievous monkeys wielding knives, all created with computer graphics, and the Parrish house that is literally torn apart – Created as a large-scale model built in the ILM Model Shop and shot against bluesceen.
