Wasn’t Jumanji one of those films that made more moolah on home video, like Austin Powers?

Exactly. The film did not do as well as expected in its box office run, even with the late great Robin Williams as the lead. IIRC, at the time people didn’t know what to make of it and thought it was a little too dark/intense for little kids, plus the studio spent a bunch of money on the film, $65m which at the time for a ‘kid’s’ movie was rare, so it wasn’t until it hit the home video market that it really took off and turned a real profit.
