The 1995 fantastical family comedy-adventure Jumanji starring Robin Williams (The Fisher King), Kirsten Dunst (All Good Things) and Bonnie Hunt (Cars 2) returns to Blu-ray and makes its debut on 4K Ultra HD on the eve of the new theatrical feature, Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle.

When young Alan Parrish discovers a mysterious board game, he doesn’t realize its unimaginable powers, until he is magically transported before the startled eyes of his friend, Sarah, into the untamed jungles of Jumanji! There he remains for 26 years until he is freed from the game’s spell by two unsuspecting children. Now a grown man, Alan (Williams) reunites with Sarah (Hunt) and together with Judy (Dunst) and Peter (Bradley Pierce) tries to outwit the game’s powerful forces…!

Jumanji on 4K Ultra HD includes Dolby Atmos audio and was fully restored in 4K from the original camera negative for a pristine picture, presented in full 4K resolution with HDR. The 4K restoration also serves as the basis for the 1080p HD presentation on Blu-ray.
