Young Alan Parrish (Adam Hann-Byrd) discovered the ornate Jumanji board in 1969, when he was just twelve. When he sits down to play it for the first time with his reluctant friend Sarah (Laura Bell-Bundy), strange things immediately begin to happen. After Alan rolls a certain number on the dice, he is transported into the jungle realm of Jumanji, disappearing before Sarah's startled eyes. Because Sarah is too frightened to finish the game, Alan remains trapped in the rainforests of Jumanji for 26 years until two new children, Judy (Kirsten Dunst) and Peter (Bradley Pierce), sit down to play the game in the attic of Alan's childhood home.
When the children roll the designated number that will free Alan, he pops back into a 38 year-old survivor (Robin Williams) of the all-too-real and all-too-deadly world of Jumanji. If Alan, Judy and Peter can find the now adult Sarah (Bonnie Hunt), they have a chance to finish the game -- or risk that their house, neighborhood and hometown be taken over by the elephants, crocodiles, spiders and other denizens of the fascinating, seemingly unstoppable force called Jumanji ... forever.

The art of animation goes "to infinity and beyond" as Walt Disney Pictures and Pixar Animation Studios, a Northern California-based pioneer in computer graphics, join creative forces on the infinitely entertaining "Toy Story," the first full-length animated feature to be created entirely by artists using computer tools and technology. Four years in the making, this delightfully irreverent new comedy-adventure combines an imaginative story and great characters with the visual excitement of 3-D computer-generated animation. Conceived and directed by John Lasseter, a former Disney animator whose innovative work with Pixar includes the 1989 Oscar-winning short, "Tin Toy," this film represents a major milestone in animated moviemaking with its groundbreaking graphic style adding to the believability of a world where toys have a life of their own. With a cast of top vocal talent headed by Tom Hanks and Tim Allen plus three entertaining new songs and an inspired score by renowned composer/performer Randy Newman, the fantasy takes flight and provides extraordinary delights for moviegoers of all ages.

"Pocahontas" is set in 1607, just as a new age of exploration has begun. A group of British adventurers led by the greedy governor of the Virginia Company, John Ratcliffe, and including a fearless soldier named John Smith, have set sail for the New World aboard The Susan Constant, seeking gold and other treasures. Meanwhile, in Virginia, a beautiful young Native American woman named Pocahontas, the daughter of Chief Powhatan, ponders her path in life and dreams about what lies "just around the riverbend." Should she marry Kocoum, the stern warrior her father has chosen for her, or does destiny have something else planned for her? She turns to her forest friends -- Meeko, a mischievous raccoon, a feisty hummingbird named Flit and Grandmother Willow, a 400-year-old mystical spirit residing in an ancient tree -- for friendship and advice.
Upon their arrival, the British settlers begin digging up the countryside in a frenzied and naive quest for gold. Charged with protecting the colony, John Smith scouts the area and meets Pocahontas. Despite their initial apprehensions and conflicts, they are attracted to one another and she introduces him to a world unlike any he has ever known. Pocahontas teaches him that every rock, tree and creature has a living spirit and explains how the Indians are able to "paint with all the colors of the wind." As their friendship blossoms, relations between the British and the Indians continue to deteriorate with fear and hatred mounting daily. When Smith is captured by Powhatan and set to be executed, Pocahontas bravely places her own life on the line by declaring that he must kill her first. Smith reciprocates the sacrifice by saving Powhatan's life from a British bullet, but is wounded in the process. In a powerful and moving finale, he and Pocahontas must part, knowing that their spirits will be forever joined on a path that never ends.

All kinds of species live on the Hoggett farm. Each animal has a job to do, tries to do it well and knows his or her place in the world.
