Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle

Spencer and Martha avoid the jaguars and head for the mountain summit, but Martha gets stuck in a nest of snakes (one of her weaknesses in the game is that she is allergic to snake venom). The villain thinks he has her cornered but she sacrifices her last spare life and as she is regenerated and falls down from the sky she manages to pass the jewel to Spencer. He returns the jewel to the mountain top and wins the game. The villain disintegrates.

The gamers are returned to the real world, except for Alex who has vanished. They walk past Alex's dilapidated old house and find it has been restored to a well cared for home decorated for Christmas with his dad looking happy. Alex arrives grown up with his family, as he was returned to 1996 as if he had never been away. Alex's oldest daughter is named after Bethany.

Spencer and Fridge become friends again. Bethany is less vain and more caring, and plans to go backpacking. Martha and Spencer get together. They all stay friends because they survived the game together, and Fridge destroys the Jumanji game to stop anyone playing it again.

Factual error: In the 1996 sequence the kid is playing a PlayStation with DualShock controllers, those controllers weren't released until 1997.

Trivia: In addition to the more obvious nods to the original (including the name "Alan Parish" being scratched into the hut), all of the statues in the world of Jumanji are modeled after the game-pieces and box from the original film.

Question: After finishing the game, did Spencer, Fridge, Bethany, and Martha still have detention or did changing the timeline prevent them from their punishment?

Cody Fairless-Lee

Answer: They still had detention. The only thing that changed was Alex. But since they had become such close friends, detention would hardly be a punishment for them anymore.


It just seemed like they just simply walked out of detention. I mean did they finish their detention or did they had to continue on a Saturday?

The movie doesn't explain. But regardless, it also really doesn't matter.


They probably didn't go back on Saturday. When they go back to school, Spencer acts like he hasn't spoken to Martha since their adventure, while Bethany says she's been texting Martha 'all weekend'.
