In 1996, in Brantford, New Hampshire, teenager Alex Vreeke receives the Jumanji board game, found by his father on a beach. When Alex refused it, the game magically transforms into a video game cartridge. When he plays it, he is teleported into the game.
Twenty years later in 2016, four students in Brantford High School are placed in detention together: Spencer Gilpin, who was caught writing essays for his former friend, Anthony “Fridge” Johnson (who is also in detention for the plagiarism), while Bethany Walker and Martha Kaply have both disrespected their respective teachers during class. They were ridiculed for their actions and almost expelled but instead got another punishment. Assigned by the school’s principal to clear out its basement, the four find Jumanji, a multiplayer action-adventure PC game. One of the playable characters (video game avatars) is inaccesable.
