In this heart-pounding follow-on to Jumanji, two sniping siblings, Danny (Jonah Bobo) and Walter (Josh Hutcherson), find magical and mysterious old game in the basement of their house that turns out to be real. It is when Danny draws a card that says, “Meteor Shower: Take Evasive Action,” and Walter attempts to read the card aloud that things start to get a little out of this world, literally speaking.

Danny, Walter and their sulky teenage sister, Lisa, open the front door of the house to find themselves in outer space. The only way to get back home is to keep playing the game until someone wins, which means drawing one card after another to move around the board.

Along their journey, they rescue a stranded astronaut (played by Dax Shephard), try to reprogram a rocket-propelled robot run amok and survive an intergalactic battle against hostile lizard-like aliens called Zorgons, who like to burn things and eat people, in order to face their greatest peril. For, unless they complete the game and reach the planet Zathura, they are doomed to be trapped in outer space forever.

Through all of this Danny, Walter and their sister, Lisa, must find a way to get over their sibling animosity they have towards each other and try to develop some type of mutual respect for each other in order to work as a team to get through their journey.

Zathura is based on the best-selling novel by acclaimed children’s author Chris Van Allsburg, who also gave us other great novels like “The Polar Express” and” Jumanji”. The screenplay was written by David Koepp and James Kamps.
