For this episode we’re remaking the 1995 family classic, Jumanji! Robin Williams stars as Alan Parrish, a young boy sucked into a magical board game, only to be released 26 years later and forced to finish his game with two orphans and his best friend who long thought him dead.
Do we hold to the original film’s vision? Or should we follow the original novel a bit closer? Perhaps we should just go our own way and Remake This Movie RIGHT!
All of those questions and more are answered for this episode of Remake This Movie RIGHT! Listen in as Aaron, Brian, and Scott break down the original and craft their own modern version.

Remake This Movie RIGHT! is a bi-weekly podcast where we take a classic film that is actively being remade by Hollywood studio execs, and craft our own version for a modern retelling. Does the story need updating? Should characters or motives be tweaked? Do we need more muppets? We take all factors into account, concoct our film, and then offer a Final Pitch to you in movie trailer form. By the end of each episode, we will Remake This Movie RIGHT!
Our show is broken down into three distinct parts:
The Original: We discuss the original film’s impact, some quick trivia bits, what worked the best from the film and therefore must remain in our upcoming remake, and what didn’t work or what needs to be changed for today’s audiences.
The Remake: We put together our movie! What story do we want to tell, how close to the original will it be, who will star, and ultimately who should direct our eventual cinematic masterpiece? Our hosts work together to put together one cohesive movie, but there is one caveat – Each host has one ‘CUT!’ throughout the episode to employ which could completely derail the entire film.
The Final Pitch: This is where we summarize our remake by utilizing the voice talents of voiceover artist Wayne Henderson and present our finished remake to you in movie trailer form!
