Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle

Synopsis: In a brand new Jumanji adventure, four high school kids discover an old video game console and are drawn into the game's jungle setting, literally becoming the adult avatars they chose. 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, to be played by others without break.

"...Benjamin Franklin,

"and it was this sense

of national exceptionalism

that fueled the spreading

wildfire of westward expansion."

Spencer? Honey?

Aah! Mom, what did we say

about the knocking?

I'm late for work. You going

to your father's after school?

- Yeah, probably.

- Don't forget your EpiPen.

Please, remember,

the world is terrifying.

Be careful of everything.

I love you

more than life itself. Bye.

- See you Sunday night.

- Okay.

[]

- Later, Mama.

- FRIDGE'S MOM:
Eat something.

I can't.

I gotta go meet Spencer.

- Spencer Gilpin?

- Yeah, Spencer Gilpin.

He's, uh...

He's been tutoring me.

- He's helping get my grades up.

- I love to hear that.

- Little Spencer Gilpin.

- Yeah.

- Your grades gonna be okay?

- That's why I'm getting help.

I'd hate for you

to get dropped from the team...

I'm not gonna get dropped

from the team.

It's... It's gonna

be fine. Okay?

Mm.

[CAMERA CLICKS]

Okay.

That's cute, right?

Yeah.

[]

- Yo.

- Hey, Fridge.

Why you wearing a raincoat?

- What do you mean?

- I mean, it's not raining.

Oh, well, it might.

I mean, you never know

what's gonna happen.

- [SQUIRREL SQUEAKS]

- [SPENCER SCREAMS]

- Oy vey.

- What the hell, man?

Do you mind?

Can we speed this up?

Freak House makes me

very uncomfortable.

Here you go.

- You proofread everything?

- Yeah, I proofed it.

And I gave it a beginning...

and an ending

and s-some in the middle.

I would've done it myself,

if I had the time or whatever,

- but...

- Yeah, it's no big deal.

Hey, man, I was thinking, so...

I mean, it's been really fun,

doing your papers

and your homework and stuff,

but I don't know

what you're doing this weekend.

- I was thinking maybe we could...

- This weekend. Yeah, ah...

- Hey, Fridge.

- Hey.

You need a ride?

- I'm going with her.

- You know what?

That's actually better for me,

scheduling-wise, too, so...

See you later, Refrigerator.

Sorry. Sorry.

What up, girl?

Whatever.

It's not like

I was your best friend

for your entire childhood.

- That's fine.

- MAN:
What'd you say?

[GASPS]

Uh, nothing, sir.

Oh, that guy is super weird.

That poor man.

So awful what happened

to those people.

I was talking about the kid.

What are you doing out here?

I was just talking

to my friend.

You should be more careful

where you loiter,

you hear me?

Yes, Mr. Vreeke. I hear you.

This world swallows up

kids like you.

It's been over two

hours since I've posted,

and he hasn't commented.

He hasn't even liked it.

- You saw it.

- LUCINDA [ON PHONE]: Yeah, gorge.

I don't know

what his problem is.

Thank you. It's not like

I post all the time,

just enough

to stay relevant.

But it's cute enough

for Noah to...

Hey, there's

some rando behind you.

- Hi.

- Hi.

Bethany, did you just make

Yeah. But I finished

my quiz already.

Oh, okay. Well, have you noticed
