Nicole Pettit Jumanji 1995 TriStar Pictures Plot and Structure: In 1869, the film begins with two young boys burying a board game. hundred years later, in 1969, when Alan (played by Robin Williams) was a young boy, he came across this board game outside of his dads shoe factory. He could faintly hear the noise of beating drums, and followed the noise until he got close to it. He then pulled a chest out of the ground, which contained the Jumanji game in it. He began to play the game with one of his best friends, Sarah (played by Bonnie Hunt). There were instructions located on the game board that read, “Jumanji. A game for those who seek to find a way to leave their world behind. You roll the dice to move your token, doubles get another turn.
