Plot summary

What is Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle movie plot?

Here is a short review of "Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle" movie plot summary.

In 1996, Brantford, New Hampshire, teenager Alex Vreeke (Nick Jonas) receives Jumanji, which was previously disposed of by Alan Parrish and Sarah Whittle in 1969, from his father who discovered it at the coast while jogging. Uninterested, Alex sets it aside, only to find it transformed into a video game cartridge later that night. Opting to play the game, he is suddenly sucked inside upon choosing a character. His disappearance results in his father becoming despondent and their home falling into disrepair.
Twenty years later, in 2016, four Brantford High School students - rebellious Martha Kaply (Karen Gillan), shallow Bethany Walker (Jack Black), awkward Spencer Gilpin (Dwayne Johnson), and athlete Anthony "Fridge" Johnson (Kevin Hart) - are sent by Principal Bentley (Marc Evan Jackson) to clean the school's basement for detention - Bethany for talking on her phone during a quiz, Martha for saying the life of a gym teacher is not important in life, and Spencer and Fridge for the former writing the latter's essay assignment for him as it was considered cheating. Fridge discovers Alex's discarded video game system, which he and Spencer decide to play and encourage the girls to join them. Upon starting the game, they are sucked into Jumanji, landing in a jungle as their chosen characters - Spencer as muscular explorer and archaeologist Dr. Xander "Smolder" Bravestone; Fridge as diminutive zoologist Franklin "Mouse" Finbar; Martha as martial arts expert Ruby Roundhouse; and Bethany as male cartographer and paleontologist Professor Sheldon "Shelly" Oberon.
While coming to terms with their situation, the group find three marks on their arms denoting lives. Spencer theorizes that if they lose all three, they will die in real life. The group encounter the game's non-player character guide Nigel Billingsly, who provides them with the game's narrative and their characters' backstories. The group learn that their goal is to end a curse on Jumanji, brought about by corrupt archaeologist Professor Russell Van Pelt (Bobby Cannavale) after he stole a magical jewel called the "Jaguar's Eye" from its shrine and gained control of all the jungle's animals, casting a terrible curse upon Jumanji. Nigel hands Spencer the jewel, having stolen it from Van Pelt, and before driving off he instructs the group to return it to a statue at the shrine and call out "Jumanji" to lift the curse and leave the game.
