Please note this is a region 2 DVD and will require a region 2 (Europe) or region Free DVD Player in order to play. Zathura (Dir. Jon Favreau, 2005): Actor-turned-director Jon Favreau (Elf) delivers another work of intelligent, charming family fare with this space adventure. Older brother Walter (Josh Hutcherson) and the younger Danny (Jonah Bobo) are constantly at war with one another, bickering over the mediating voice of their long-suffering father (Tim Robbins). When he has to go to the office to replace some papers the boys destroyed in their crossfire, he leaves them in the dubious care of older sister Lisa (Kristen Stewart), who is sleeping upstairs. When Danny discovers an old board game called Zathura stored in the basement, his excitement is lost on Walter, who has no time for such old, boring toys. Soon, however, the game becomes impossible to ignore, as the boys are transported into space, and one of them must win in order to make it home again. Each turn brings a new, often dangerous, surprise, and the boys are faced with a murderous robot, an explosive meteor shower, and lizard-like aliens, while poor Lisa is cryogenically frozen early in the game. Jumanji (Dir. Joe Johnston, 1995): When young Alan Parrish and his friend Sarah (Bonnie Hunt) begin to play a mysterious board game, they don't realise its unimaginable powers until Alan is magically transported into the untamed jungles of Jumanji. Twenty-six years later, Judy (Kirsten Dunst) and Peter (Bradley Pierce) discover the dusty board and reawaken the game as they begin to play. Instantly the forces of Jumanji release a fully-grown, bewildered Alan Parrish (Robin Williams) into their world. With each roll of the dice they must face the increasingly terrifying consequences until the game is finished and the victor had uttered the word Jumanji...

Double box set containing two popular family adventures. 'Zathura - A Space Adventure' (2005) stars Jonah Bobo and Josh Hutcherson as two brothers, Danny and Walter. Despite their squabbling, the brothers manage to cooperate enough to play an old mechanical board game named Zathura. However, after their first move, they find that the game has apparently flung them, their sister and their entire house into outer space. Furthermore, the brothers surmise the only way to return home is to finish the game. However with almost every move, new dangers arise as the siblings find themselves learning to cooperate in ways they never expected as they realise what they mean to each other. In 'Jumanji', young Judy (Kirsten Dunst) and Peter (Bradley Pierce) Shepherd discover the board game Jumanji in their new house. But when they begin to play they release wild animals along with Alan Parrish (Robin Williams), a grown man who has been trapped inside the game since he was 12 years old. Together they must seek out Alan's friend Sarah (Bonnie Hunt) and re-enter the game to win. In doing so they have to face elephants, lions, and the big game hunter Van Pelt (Jonathan Hyde).
