JUMANJI: WELCOME TO THE JUNGLE is a US fantasy action adventure comedy in which four high school students are drawn into the jungle setting of a video game.

Violence

Occasional moderate fantasy violence includes heavy punches, kicks, headbutts and a head-twist neck break. Video game characters are killed with explosives, without realistic detail. A character sees a small amount of blood on her chest and realises she's been shot; she then disappears in a splash of red liquid before immediately regenerating.

Sex

There are infrequent moderate sex references including a joke about genitals.

Language

There is infrequent use of moderate bad language and milder terms.

Infrequent crude humour includes a scene in which a female character who has been transformed into a man requires instructions on how to urinate while in her current body. Scenes of mild threat include ones in which characters encounter dangerous animals such as snakes, jaguars and stampeding rhinos, and another in which a character hangs onto the side of a helicopter. A scorpion crawls out of a villain's mouth and attacks another man.
