A New Adventure From the World of Jumanji (taglines)


  • [to Danny; furiously] You're such a baby.
  • Times change.
  • [reads instructions] "Zathura: Attention space-adventurers, Zathura awaits. Do you have what it takes to navigate the galaxy? It's not for the faint of heart, for once you embark upon your journey, there's no turning back until Zathura's reached. Pieces reset at the end of each game. Play again and again for different adventures." That's it, we gotta keep playing.
  • [to Danny] Yes it did. "Pieces reset at the end of each game." That means we go home when we're finished.
  • Anything I want. [to the robot] Get me a juice box, BIATCH!
  • What do you mean? Everything was great until you came along.
  • [reads card] "REPROGRAM"? [to Danny] What the heck does that mean?!
  • [to Danny; furiously] How can you move the piece by accident if it's stuck to the game? That's impossible! You cheated!
  • [to Danny; angrily] It's not your fault? How's it not your fault? This is all your fault. Everything's your fault! IT'S YOUR FAULT MOM AND DAD GOT DIVORCED!
  • [to Danny; gently] I'm your brother. And that's what being a brother means. Means I'll never let anything happen to you.
  • [to Lisa] Still think I have gorgeous eyes?


  • [to Walter] You're such a dick!
  • (after knocking Walter's glass of punch on his dad's car picture) I'm sorry I'm sorry I'm sorry I'm sorry I'm sorry I'm sorry I'm sorry I'm sorry!
  • I'M NOT A BABY!!!
  • (picks up the game) YOU SUCK! (throws the game at Walter but misses, runs upstairs)
  • [card reads "FLUNK SPACE ACADEMY Go back 1 space"] I'm not even going to comment on that.
  • One. God! I suck.

Astronaut (25-Year-Old Walter)[edit]

  • [to Lisa] The Astronaut, from the game we're in. [pointing at Danny] Danny spun me.
  • Okay, guys. Here's the thing. I played this game before. Okay? I played it with my own brother 15 years ago. (Walter: You were a player?) Yeah. Just like you guys. We were fighting a lot back then. And when the game started, it got even worse. Every time we spun we got madder and madder at one another, and then I landed on a star space, the same one that Walter just landed on. Well I was so mad at him, that when the star passed, I made my wish. (Walter: You did you wish for?) I wished that my brother had never been born. (Danny: Oh my god.) As soon as I did it I felt horrible. I thought—you know if I could spin again maybe I-- I could—I could land on another star space and—and wish him back, but the game wouldn't let me. Because it wasn't my turn. Walter, there's some games you can't play alone. (Walter: So what do we do now?) We go back downstairs and we finish this thing once in for all. No more cheating. No more arguing. All you guys have to do is spin a few more times. I'll help you fight off whatever it comes out. Deal?
  • Zorgons. They're big gnarly lizards. Cold blooded heat seekers and the tiniest spark of warmth will bring them in like moths. Flying all around in the galaxy. Looking for anything they can find to burn up. (Walter: Why don't they just burn up their own planet?) Oh, they already did. That's not even the worst of it. Their problem is their ravenous appetite. They never stop eating. (Walter: What do they eat?) Meat. (Danny: That's good.) Dude, You're meat.
  • Burning gas! That's probably what brought 'em here in the first place!
  • Nope. I'm doing this is because I've been eating paste out of a tube for 15 years.


Dad: [knocks on Lisa's door] Honey. [enters Lisa's room] Lisa. Honey. Get up. I need to go out. [opens up blinds] I need you to look after your two favorite people in the world. Come on.
Lisa: I can't. I have a date tonight.
Dad: What time?
Lisa: We're hookin' up at, like, 8:00.
Dad: It's 2:00.
Lisa: So?
Dad: So, that's 6 hours from now.
Lisa: What's your point?
Dad: My point is I need you to look after the boys. And by the way, it makes me uncomfortable when you say "hooking up".
Lisa: Why? It's not like it means anything.
Dad: Hope it doesn't.
Lisa: [annoyed] It doesn't. It's just an expression.
Dad: I hope it is.
Lisa: [annoyed] It is. God. We never should've rented Thirteen.

Danny: [after Walter turns off MegaRace 3; to Walter] Hey!
Walter: [to Danny] Dad said no video games.
Danny: He did not. Fine.
[Walter changes the channel to SpongeBob SquarePants episode, "Bubblestand"]
Patrick Star: [on TV, laughing at the bubble elephant] It's a giraffe!
[Danny laughs until Walter changes the channel]
SportsCenter Announcer: This is SportsCenter!
Danny: Hey! I was watching that!
SportsCenter Announcer: It is Oakland. It is Boston. It is Manny Ramirez.
Danny: Can't we watch SpongeBob?
Walter: No.
Danny: You used to like it.
Walter: Times change.
Danny: Tarter sauce. I'm hungry.
Walter: So, what do you want me to do about it?
Danny: Make me macaroni and cheese.
Walter: I don't know how.
Danny: I'm hungry. What do you know how to make?
Walter: Water.
Danny: How about you and me play catch?
Walter: No. [Danny goes to get a baseball. He and Walter throw it back and forth, but Danny purposely hits Walter in the face with the baseball in retaliation for not leaving on SpongeBob and turning off his video game.] YOU'RE DEAD!! [jumps off the chair and angrily chases after Danny]
Danny: I'm sorry, I'm sorry, I'm sorry, I'm sorry, I'm sorry!
Walter: [looking for him] Danny. Where are you? Danny. Where are you, Danny? [Danny hides in the dumbwaiter] Danny. Where are you? [he finds him hiding in there] There you are.
Danny: I said I was sorry. [Walter starts to lower him down to the basement] Don't. No. Don't do that, it's not funny.
Walter: You'll be safe in here until dad gets back.
Danny: You're just jealous, because dad thinks I'm smarter than you! I didn't mean that. [He continues lowering him down to the basement] Walter, no! Pull me up! Don't!
Walter: What's the matter, Danny?
Danny: Pull me up!
Walter: Not still scared of the basement, are you?
Danny: Walter! No, Walter! It's not funny! No! Pull me up! WALTER!
Walter: [not caring] 3-YEAR-OLD'S ARE SCARED OF BASEMENTS!

Walter and Danny: Lisa, no wait, Lisa!
Danny: Oh, man!
Walter: Wait, that one didn't count. Let me go again. [tries to push the GO button, but it's jammed] It's stuck!
Danny: Maybe we have to take turns. [pushes button and number on panel spins] See, it was my turn.

Walter: We'll figure it out later. Go.
Danny: No.
Walter: Go.
Danny: NO!
Walter: GO!
Danny: [misreads card] "Rest on standing AstroTurf."
Walter: What?
Danny: "Rest on standing AstroTurf."
Walter: Let me read it.
Danny: No, I know how to read. I know how to read!
Walter: Let me read it! God. [correctly reads the card] "RESCUE STRANDED ASTRONAUT."
Danny: What stranded astronaut?
Walter: I guess there's gonna be some stranded astronaut or some--

Walter: Hang on a second. Something's wrong.
Astronaut: What?
[Danny’s ship was ahead of Walter's in the next spot]
Walter: [to Danny] I was ahead of you.
[Astronaut looks to Danny]
Danny: Somebody must have kicked the board?
Walter: [angrily] No, nobody kicked the board. You cheated!
Danny: No, I didn't.
Walter: You cheated! I knew you were gonna cheat!
Astronaut: Ch-- "Cheater's" a strong word.
Astronaut: Guys, guys, please. Bring it down. Indoor voices. Now, did you move the piece?
Danny: Maybe... I moved the piece... by an accident.
Astronaut: Okay. It was an accident.
Walter: How can you move the piece by accident if it's stuck to the game?! That's impossible! You cheated!
Astronaut: No, no, no, let's not use that word. No, stop saying cheated.
Walter: You cheated! Cheater!!!
Astronaut: Hey, hey, hey. Come on. Okay? Now, where did you move from?
Danny: [pointing to his rocket ship] I was right here.
Walter: No, you weren't; You were back there.
Danny: [insistently] Nuh-uh.
[Walter moves Danny’s ship back to the same spot where he spun the astronaut]
Astronaut: Okay, care-- careful.
Walter: God.
Astronaut: Okay, it's fixed.
Walter: You're such a baby.
Danny: I'm not a baby.
Astronaut: [overlapping Walter and Danny] Slow down, slow down, slow down.
Walter: Yes, you are a baby!
Danny: I'm not a baby!
Walter: You're a baby! 100%!
Astronaut: [trying to stop Walter and Danny’s argument] Nobody is a baby here!'
Danny: I'm not a baby!
Walter: [dismissively yelling] You're a little baby!
Danny: [angrily shrieking] I'M NOT A BABY!!! AAIIGGH--!!
Astronaut: [covering Danny’s mouth, stopping the argument] JEEZ! It won't stop! Please! Okay, let's play the game.
Walter: [annoyed] Fine. [pushes the "Go" button, but the number on the panel keeps spinning because Danny's ship was moved back to the same spot where he spun the astronaut] Won't stop spinning.
Danny: What's wrong with it?
Walter: You broke it.
Astronaut: [sees yellow card] Oh, look. There's the card. See? It fixed itself.
Walter: [reads card] "CAUGHT CHEATING Automatic ejection"? (What?) Does it mean me?
Danny: [innocently] Well, you did move the piece.
Walter: [points to Danny; denying it] He's the one who cheated. AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH!!! [flies up out through the hole in the house's roof and gets sucked into space while screaming, and one of Walter's Nike sneakers slips off]
Danny: Walter! [astronaut gets his turbo-jet-pack] [runs up the stairs] Hang on, Walter! I'll save you!
Walter: Help!
Danny: Wait a minute! I got an idea! [Walter hangs on by his fingertips and Danny gets the lamp] I'm going to swing this lamp up to you and you grab it and I'll pull you down.
Walter: [about to slip off] I CAN'T HANG ON ANY LONGER!
Danny: [throws the lamp and breaks it] Don't worry! I'll get another lamp!
Astronaut: [comes with a turbo-jet-pack on his back] Stand back. [blasts off to get Walter down]
Danny: [waiting for Walter to come down] Walter! [looking at the hole] Walter! Oh, no. [Astronaut brings Walter down] You okay? Are you okay?
Walter: [annoyed] Get away from me.
Danny: Sorry. [gives the other shoe to Walter]
Walter: [angrily] Don't talk to me 'til we get home. [puts his other shoe on]

Robot: [breaks through the door] EMERGENCY. [The Zorgons all growl] ALIEN LIFE-FORM. MUST DESTROY.
Walter: He still wants to kill me! [robot grabs his neck]
Danny: Use the card, quick!
Walter: [holding the card to the robot] "REPROGRAM"!
Robot: [repair bot appears to fix the robot and shuts it down and turns back on. The robot then lets go of Walter's neck] ALIEN LIFE-FORM. [Zorgons growling] MUST DESTROY. [uses his jet booster to chase them, Danny and Walter follow them, the Zorgons try to escape to their battleship and the robot uses his jet booster again to attack their battleships] ALIEN LIFE-FORM. MUST DESTROY. [Zorgon's second battleship explodes while the robot is still attacking the first one causing it to roll around]
Walter: Guess that's what the "REPROGRAM" card's for.
Danny: I like that card.
Walter: It's a good card.
[Danny and Walter are discussing the "REPROGRAM" card, not noticing a surviving Zorgon coming down the stairs behind them]
Danny: Where's Lisa?
[a piano suddenly crashes down the stairs and flattens the Zorgon. Lisa is revealed to have been the one to push it]
Lisa: Lisa... is upstairs.
Astronaut: What fell? [sees the crushed Zorgon] Little excessive, but I like it. Come on.

[The kids have just returned from the Zathura world, Danny has his finger at the "GO" button on the board.]
Danny: [looking around] Walter?
Walter: [to Danny; concerned] Don't push that button.
[Danny listens to Water as he slowly takes his finger off the "GO" button.]

[last lines]
Lisa: We never speak of this, okay?
Walter: Never happened.
Danny: Never happened.
Walter: Still think I have gorgeous eyes? [Lisa stares at Danny and Walter, who laugh]
Danny: Walter.
Walter: What? [they start playfully tackling each other for a second and run straight to their mom's Volvo SUV, and their bike comes down after being up in space, ending the movie]
