Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle mistake picture

Visible crew/equipment: The scene where Spencer throws the boomerang for the first time and misses the bikers they take off running. While they are running from the bikers, there is a shot right before the boomerang hits the bikers where you can see a camera man sitting in the bushes on the left side. You don't have to pause it, but can to see it better. (00:36:30)

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.

Trivia: When the first production photos were released some months before the film came out, there was a great deal of backlash against the outfit worn by Karen Gillan "Ruby Roundhouse." Many people complained that her outfit (including short-shorts and a tight-fit crop-top) was impractical and only there to show off her body. Somewhat amusingly and ironically, that ended up being the whole point when the film was released - she's a video-game character, and her outfit is meant to be a joke on how female characters in games often wear overly revealing clothing even when it's completely nonsensical for them to do so. Gillan has defended the choice, stating "I think that when you look at that picture out of context, it is ridiculous, and that is sort of the point we were making with it."

Trivia: While Dwayne Johnson is at the bazaar he grabs a bad guy and makes the "Rock Bottom" move from his WWE days.

Question: Is the villain Russel Van Pelt the son or nephew of the hunter Van Pelt from the first movie?

Answer: The Van Pelt seen in the sequel is a 're-imagined' version of Van Pelt due to the fact that Jumanji has evolved to become a video game, rather than a board game.

Question: Are there any other Alan Parrish references in this movie other than the treehouse Alex had been living in?

Answer: Adult Alex named his son Alan.

Actually, the son's name is Andy.

Answer: The elephant figurine is Alan Parrish's playing piece from the original game.

Question: Why would the five lead characters need to be avatars if Alan Parrish was just himself when he was in the game for 26 years?

Answer: Because in original Jumanji it was a board game and Alan's piece was an elephant. The game sucked Alan in until Sarah or other players rolled a 5 or 8 - at this point he would return and continue playing with the elephant piece. In new Jumanji it's a video game, tricking the players in by choosing avatars, then sealing their fate of having to play Jumanji. Alan wasn't supposed to be in the game for so long - it was an incentive for Sarah to keep playing. The game just wants to be played.
