Jumanji is a visually elaborate fantasy about an enchanted board game that opens a magical portal to a jungle universe. Two young children, Judy (Kirsten Dunst) and Peter (Bradley Pierce), discover the game in an abandoned home and suddenly are greeted by Alan (Robin Williams), an adult who has spent his life trapped inside the game since playing it at age 12. Alan's only hope for freedom involves finishing the game, but this proves rather dangerous, as Judy, Peter, and Alan find themselves running for their lives from huge rhinoceroses, evil monkeys, vicious lions, and other terrifying jungle beasts. Director Joe Johnston, whose special-effects background previously came to good use in Honey, I Shrunk the Kids, used groundbreaking computer imagery to simulate the thrills.~Judd Blaise

Jumanji motion storybook as read by author Chris Van Allsburg
The movie is a classic and when this Steelbook first came out I didn’t get the chance to pick it up and it sold out in-store. We saw this in store in our recent trip to Best Buy and had to pick it up. It’s a really good looking Steelbook.
I originally owned this on VHS and then DVD and I was honestly more than happy with just that. After walking around in my local Best Buy and seeing this I almost immediately had to add it to my somewhat small, but growing 4K collection. Man was it worth it! Easily one of the coolest steelbooks I own!
If you're a fan of the look and feel of the Jumanji board game from the movie you'll enjoy this. My only gripe would be that I wish they would've made the wood design of the cover a little lighter. More authentic to color of wood grain. This is still good addition to your steel book collection.
The 4K upgrade is quite noticeable and the film itself is a very fun watch. The Steelbook is one of Best Buy's best designs in recent memory. The Steelbook is designed to look exactly like the game board. Even the inside of the Steelbook is exactly like the inside of the Jumanji game board.
