Added DiffLines:

** Except for Judy (and later Alan and Sarah), Peter hasn't spoken to anyone since his parents died.


Added DiffLines:

* The junior novel only drives the point home of how sad it is for Alan to return basically a lost child, even after all his time in Jumanji:
--> "Alan Parrish stared back, his face lined with confusion. Judy figured him to be about Aunt Nora's age, maybe older, but she could see the [[ManChild the soul of a boy]] behind his confused eyes."

Added DiffLines:

** This excerpt from the junior novel drives home how bitter (and unforgiving) Carl feels towards Alan:
--> "Bentley spun around to get a closer look. A closer look at the man who had grown from the boy who had stolen his life."


Added DiffLines:

* In the junior novel, we get this line from Alan upon seeing his parents' graves:
--> '''Alan:''' I wish this family didn't exist!


Added DiffLines:

** Although the sing-song tone he uses make it a little funny, it's also a look at how embittered he feels towards Sarah for not finishing the game and basically abandoning him to the game's jungle. He's had 26 years to roil in his grudge towards her.
* Judy and Peter being recently orphaned by the loss of their parents is subtle, but still very much sad. The junior novel delves deeper into the details of what it must've been like.
--> "Since their parents' deaths, Judy and Peter couldn't have possibly felt more rotten. Mom and Dad were supposed to have been gone only a week. A skiing trip in the Canadian Rockies. They'd called it their second honeymoon. [[HarsherInHindsight Judy's biggest worry was that Dad might break his leg on the slope]]. But a fatal car wreck? No kid was ever prepared to hear that."

* The final episode has the biggest, yet most subtle tearjerker in the series. Alan is finally free from the game! However he's slow to celebrate as he realises [[spoiler: All he had to do was pull the thorn from the paw of thelion he met in the first minute of playing the game]]. He spent nearly thirty years trapped in Jumanji, fighting for his life as he lost his life, his family and future, and now he realises he could have been free within five minutes of starting ad had all of that.

* The ending, where Alan and Sarah meet Judy and Peter again (for the first time in the new timeline. It's implied shortly before that point that Alan and Sarah would forget a lot of their "old" adult life when they became teenagers again, but they not only remembered exactly what the kids looked like, they also sought them out to bring them and their parents to their town to be a part of their happy lives. Add in the panicked BigNo when their parents mention they're planning a ski trip to the Rockies (presumably the trip they died on in the original timeline), it shows how strong a love they have for the kids, and how great a debt they owe them. Their memories of the kids survived magic amnesia and the memory fade of 26 years.

* The part where Alan Parrish comes back out of the board game after being in an alternate jungle dimension for 26 years, and goes looking for his parents, only to discover they're dead '''''and''''' that his father, who he thought never loved him, gave up everything he had to try to find him. [[{{Lurkerbunny}} I]] can't even bear to watch that part.

** Even the part after she wakes up from her faint and leaves a message for her therapist is this, for while it's slightly PlayedForLaughs, she still has tears in her eyes and her voice breaks a little as she tells the doctor she "needs her dosage checked", that she was sitting in the living room of the boy she saw vanish, drinking lemonade, and that she'd "really like to know what you make of all this." It's enough to make you want to give her a hug.
