Trivia: When the first production photos were released some months before the film came out, there was a great deal of backlash against the outfit worn by Karen Gillan "Ruby Roundhouse." Many people complained that her outfit (including short-shorts and a tight-fit crop-top) was impractical and only there to show off her body. Somewhat amusingly and ironically, that ended up being the whole point when the film was released - she's a video-game character, and her outfit is meant to be a joke on how female characters in games often wear overly revealing clothing even when it's completely nonsensical for them to do so. Gillan has defended the choice, stating "I think that when you look at that picture out of context, it is ridiculous, and that is sort of the point we were making with it."

Trivia: In addition to the more obvious nods to the original (including the name "Alan Parish" being scratched into the hut), all of the statues in the world of Jumanji are modeled after the game-pieces and box from the original film.

Trivia: The subtitle "Welcome to the Jungle" was coincidentally the original title for the film "The Rundown", which also starred Dwayne Johnson.

Trivia: When the players return the Jaguar's Eye to its statue, the camera pans out to show the route the characters have taken in the movie, which mirrors the layout of movement spaces in the board game version of Jumanji.

Trivia: The exterior of the school was shot at Westlake High School in Atlanta, Georgia. This was the same school that was used for exteriors in the 2015 film "Goosebumps." Jack Black starred in both films.

Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle mistake picture

Visible crew/equipment: The scene where Spencer throws the boomerang for the first time and misses the bikers they take off running. While they are running from the bikers, there is a shot right before the boomerang hits the bikers where you can see a camera man sitting in the bushes on the left side. You don't have to pause it, but can to see it better. (00:36:30)

Professor Shelly Oberon: Aren't you being judgmental about others, because you'd rather burn people than get burned yourself? I'm just saying, you're a babe, go with it.
