In celebration of this Event, here are two hilarious new gag reels from the Film!
When four high-school kids discover an old video game console with a game they’ve never heard of–Jumanji–they are immediately drawn into the game’s jungle setting, literally becoming the avatars they chose: gamer Spencer becomes a brawny adventurer (Dwayne Johnson); football jock Fridge loses (in his words) “the top two feet of his body” and becomes an Einstein (Kevin Hart); popular girl Bethany becomes a middle-aged male professor (Jack Black); and wallflower Martha becomes a badass warrior (Karen Gillan). What they discover is that you don’t just play Jumanji–you must survive it. To beat the game and return to the real world, they’ll have to go on the most dangerous adventure of their lives, discover what Alan Parrish left 20 years ago, and change the way they think about themselves–or they’ll be stuck in the game forever …

Four teenagers — Spencer (Alex Wolff), Bethany (Madison Iseman), Martha (Morgan Turner) and Anthony a.k.a. “Fridge” (Ser’Darius Blain) — are given detention and told to clean out the school’s basement. Fridge discovers an old video game console with a game called Jumanji, and the kids set it up, pick characters and begin to play.
They’re immediately sucked into the game’s jungle setting — and into the bodies of their avatars. Spencer becomes Dr. Smolder Bravestone (Dwayne Johnson), Fridge turns into Moose Finbar (Kevin Hart), Martha is Ruby Roundhouse (Karen Gillan) and gorgeous Bethany is horrified to find she’s an overweight middle-aged man named Professor Shelly Oberon (Jack Black). They discover what their special skills are in order to survive the game.
