Jumanji is a 1995 American family fantasy adventure film directed by Joe Johnston. It is an adaptation of the 1981 children's book of the same name by Chris Van Allsburg. The film was written by Greg Taylor, Jonathan Hensleigh, and Jim Strain, and stars Robin Williams, Kirsten Dunst, Bradley Pierce, David Alan Grier, Bonnie Hunt, Jonathan Hyde, and Bebe Neuwirth.

The story centers on young Alan Parrish, who becomes trapped in a board game while playing with his best friend Sarah Whittle in 1969. Twenty-six years later in 1995, siblings Judy and Peter Shepherd find the game, begin playing and then unwittingly release the now-adult Alan. After tracking down Sarah, the quartet resolve to finish the game in order to reverse all of the destruction it has caused.

Jumanji has been part of my childhood and I always had a particular affection for this film. It is the reason why I started to collect and create a few things for it. I have entirely made the Cliffside leaflet and work on existing objects to make the Alan Parrish necklace. The knife is a cast of a real prehistoric knife, and I carved the handle out of an antler bone. The Parrish shoe had been customized out of a real Nike shoe. I have remade the needed leather pieces and saw and printed the lettering for it. I have also repainted entirely the sole and the inner parts. The Jumanji board has been created by Markpoon and painted by Jordan Samper.
