When two kids find and play a magical board game, they release a man trapped in it for decades--and a host of dangers that can only be stopped by finishing the game.
When Sarah freaks out over the board game she mentions she had spent hours in therapy. It's likely, although it's not mentioned or confirmed in the movie, Sarah may had been diagnosed with possible Delusional Disorder due to the town of Brantford not believing her about what happened to Alan and thinking she was a lunatic. Delusional Disorder is a disorder where a person has trouble recognizing reality.
You think that mosquitos, monkeys, and lions are bad? That is just the beginning. I've seen things you've only seen in your nightmares. Things you can't even imagine. Things you can't even see. There are things that hunt you in the night. Then ...
After young Alan pulls the chest out of the dirt, he brushes some dirt off the top, then pauses with his hands touching the lid. It then cuts to a close-up of his face in which much of the lid is also visible, and his hands are not there.
There are no opening credits other than the title.
At the end of the film, Alan and Sarah give Judy and Peter a Christmas gift. In the theatrical version, the kids open their gifts up to reveal new sneakers named "Jumanjis"
