Biography

Jumanji

Alan was first seen in 1969 as a 12-year-old boy riding his bike from a group of bullies. After he discovers a cursed board game called "Jumanji", he and his best friend Sarah began playing the game and Alan is sucked into the board game.

Twenty-six years later in 1995, he is released out of the board game by two orphaned children named Judy and Peter Shepherd and decides to continue to play the game and reunite with Sarah. After several vines appear and the villainous game hunter, Van Pelt appears, a stampede wrecks his house and Peter transforms into a monkey while trying to cheat. Alan shows up just in time after being taken away by a police officer (his old friend from his dad's shoe factory). After a monsoon floods his house along with two large crocodiles and the flood lets out, Alan gets stuck in quicksand and large venomous spiders appear.

After Alan is freed from the floor of the attic while an earthquake rips his house in half, Alan finally wins the game before Van Pelt shoots him and Sarah as Van Pelt and all of the jungle elements are sucked back into the board game. Alan and Sarah have found themselves back in the past as children before they began playing the game. Alan makes amends with his father and also tells him that he caused the accident in the factory after having gone through a painful experience in the alternate timeline. He becomes worried about Judy and Peter before Sarah tells them they do not exist yet, which makes them safe. Alan and Sarah then decided to throw the "Jumanji" game into the river before they begin a romantic relationship and alter the future.

By the end of the film twenty-six years later, Alan and Sarah are now married and expecting their first child together. Alan's parents have retired but are still alive and Alan is now charge of his father's company. His old friend also still works in the factory as the plant supervisor. They meet Judy and Peter and their parents Jim and Martha. Alan and Sarah quickly convince Jim to start work at the shoe factory instead of going on a skiing trip in Canada and Jim agrees, thus preventing his and Martha's death in the previous timeline.
