Jumanji is an early successfull post-Aladdin film in Robin Wiliams acting career. Generally speaking Robin Williams was at his peak preformance between Mrs. Doubfire and Good Will Hunting. The films that folowed are in a gentle descline in box office success and IMDB rating maybe the ‘Aladdin’ effect whore thin, still flicks like Bicentennial Man and the 2001 One Hour Photo are strong films with Robin in a serious role.
Anyway I catched a early night airing of Jumanji last Sunday. When Alan, Sarah and the kids are in the libary Alan calls “STAMPEDE” a second later a fake a CG wild animal stampede breach the wall and trash the house.
Fast forward to 1995 Robin returns as Genie in Aladdin and the King of Thieves and goes bezerk with all the cameos and pop culture references. In the scene the elphants trash the wedding paviljon Genie quotes Alan Parish “STAMPEDE”
