** Alan's parents wanted to send him to boarding school for a different (and better) reason than in the final draft. AFter Alan was beaten up by Billy Jessup and his gang, Alan's parents finally realized that Alan was not fitting in with the other children in Brantford, correctly guessing that it was because they were jealous of Alan's wealth and status as a Parrish. Therefore, they believed he would fit in better with boys at Cliffside (or "Boden" as it was called in the original draft) because they were more "his status." The end result was still the same with Alan though.

* {{Defictionalization}}: A ''Jumanji'' board game was released when the movie came out. It shared many elements with the game in the movie, aside from the supernatural elements (like sucking-in-small-children) ... at least as far as we know. It also used cards, not even attempting to copy the magic-8 ball style interface. It came full-circle again when ''Film/{{Zathura}}'' came out, which used cards.
