!!The Movie
* {{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 ''{{Zathura}}'' came out, which used cards.
* HeyItsThatGuy: Aside from the three most obvious, Mr. Parrish/Van Pelt is played by [[Film/{{Titanic}} Jonathan]] [[Film/{{Anaconda}} Hyde]], David Allen Grier plays Carl, and Creator/BebeNeuwirth plays Aunt Nora.
** Also, [[Film/LegallyBlonde Laura Bell Bundy]] plays the young Sarah.
** Elder Sarah is [[WesternAnimation/ABugsLife Rosie]] and [[WesternAnimation/ToyStory3 Dolly]].
** Peter is [[Disney/BeautyandtheBeast Chip]] and [[WesternAnimation/AdventuresOfSonicTheHedgehog Tails]].
** [[Film/SpiderMan Mary Jane]] is Judy.
* RealitySubtext: The gun shop owner asking Van Pelt if he's a postal worker. Around the time of the movie, there had been a lot of news stories about postal workers going crazy and shooting up their workplaces, from which we get the expression "GoingPostal."
