Despite their squabbling, the brothers manage 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.

Movie Quote(s):
  • Danny: I'm hungry. Can you make me some macaroni-and-cheese? Walter: Don't know how. Danny: but, I'm hungry; what *do* you know how to make? Walter: Water.
  • Danny: Zorgons are the lizardmen. They eat meat and we are MEAT!
  • Walter: [to robot] Get me a juice box, BIATCH!
  • Walter: ...and then the card comes out... Danny: Oh, the card. The card. The card. The... Danny: THE CARD! Danny, Walter: THE CARD!
  • Danny: [after seeing what the Zorgons did to the living room] My gerbil was in there.
Movie Trivia:
  • Originally conceived as a direct sequel to Jumanji (1995). The visual effects supervisor on that film, Ken Ralston, was lined up to direct before Columbia abandoned the project in favor of adapting Zathura.
  • While the film was being made, Jonah Bobo (Danny) lost four teeth, so the filmmakers made 'flippers' or fake teeth that he wore, since the movie takes place in only a day.
  • In every Chris Van Allsburg book, there is a bull terrier named Fritz. Jon Favreau put Fritz in the movie - look for a Beanie Baby bull terrier behind Walter near the end of the movie.
  • SPOILER: The numbers Spun by Danny and Walter (respectively) are as follows: (5, 9+Move ahead 2 spaces), (4,8), (7,6+Move ahead 4 spaces), (6,8), (6,8), (8 - Move back 2 spaces, 9), (9 - Move back 1 space, 3 - Move back 3 spaces), (1 + Move ahead 9 spaces - Danny wins the game).
