** And what happened to Alan's mother? Presumably she was also still living in the new and improved 1995 much like her husband, but the fact that she isn't seen mentioned at all after Alan sees her gravestone in the original 1995 makes it subjective.

** Van Pelt has a run-in with the then-newly-enacted Brady Bill when shopping for a new gun after his lever-action shotgun runs out of ammo; he's told he has to wait for some time and fill out paperwork before he can acquire the new gun. Yes, even a magic game has to follow the rules of where and when it's being played. Bribing still works, though.

The movie will be a modern take on the original where Jumanji is a video game instead of a board game.

* NoOntologicalInertia: [[spoiler: The entire movie after the first twenty minutes or so ultimately becomes an AlternateUniverse, which is undone precisely because the game's effects all have no such inertia, meaning that the 25-odd years of changes to the town caused by Alan Parrish's disappearance are undone and Alan is returned to the moment he was initially sucked in.]] The lack of ontological inertia is very broad, such as in how the gun and the ammunition used by Van Pelt at the end of the movie also disappear, even though they were not items generated by the game, but a real weapon purchased from a real gun store.
** The weapon wasn't real, neither was the store it came from, technically speaking. They were part of the alternate universe created by Jumanji, a universe which ceased to exist as soon as Alan won the game.

* RareGuns: Van Pelt's shotgun is so rare, ammunition hasn't been made for it since 1903. When he runs dry, he upgrades to a USAS-12 with a suitably large bribe of gold coins.

** Van Pelt has a run-in with the then-newly-enacted Brady Bill when shopping for a new gun after his old one had run out of ammo; he's told he has to wait for some time and fill out paperwork before he can acquire the new gun.

** Despite having a good vantage and plenty of time to set up his shots, Van Pelt is unfamiliar with his new weapon (and hasn't had time to dial in the scope properly) and so misses Alan.

** During the dinner scene, Aunt Nora says "I can't believe I had to see your principal after your first day." Why is left unanswered in the film - the novelization explains that Judy made up a story about what happened to their parents, one of her classmates (who happens to be the son of the realtor who sold them the house, and who was told the true story by their aunt) calls her a liar, resulting in Peter going berserk on him. When the kid manages to run off, the other kids surround Peter and call him an animal until Judy manages to get through them and drag Peter away.

** Things start off fairly tame (no pun intended), with only small things such as a cloud of bats, a scourge of mosquitoes, a troop of monkeys, a single lion. Then they escalate to carnivorous plants, [[ImplacableMan a hunter that won't quit]], an entire stampede that destroys the town, a monsoon that floods the house, and an earthquake that splits the house apart. [[FridgeHorror One can only wonder]] what the game would have released next to [[UpToEleven top itself]] if Alan hadn't won when he did... Maybe a volcano. It's lampshaded in Sarah's final rhyme: "You're almost there with much at stake/But now the ground begins to quake..."

* BigFancyHouse: The Parrish family mansion. Emphasis on "big" [[http://image.toutlecine.com/photos/j/u/m/jumanji-1995-08-g.jpg as this image shows]], the place has 15+ foot ceilings that make even full-grown adults feel like children. This Georgian/Colonial Revival house, with its marble floors, crystal chandeliers, winding grand staircase, massive library, and other lavish appointments, is an appropriate symbol of status for Sam Parrish, the owner of one of the most important businesses in the entire town. This is of course completely subverted in a rather upsetting way by seeing the increasingly more severe amounts of damage dealt to it by the game--by the final turns the place has been overtaken by vines, creepers, and carnivorous plants; flooded; battered by a stampede; and split in half by an earthquake. It's all a very nice bit of symbolism for what happened to the town and to Alan's family thanks to his disappearance (and in fact parallels the depressed, broken-down, decrepit state of Bradford in 1994). [[spoiler:When the ResetButton is pushed, it is of course restored like everything else, reflecting the second chance Alan and Sarah have been given.]]
