Has your family seen Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle yet? Well…if not you are missing out on the best movie of the year!! My family is so excited to get this movie on DVD so we can watch it over and over again. We are having a family movie night with some Cajun popcorn seasoning on our popcorn…an awesome dinner and a hilarious movie.
Cajun Popcorn Seasoning and Jumanji for Family Movie Night
I like to make family movie night FUN while still keeping it easy for ME so I can have a good time too. It helps to have a movie our whole family enjoys…there won't be any fighting over what we are going to watch now that we have Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle in our DVD collection.
I have to admit…some of my favorite stars are in this movie TOGETHER. The combination of Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, Kevin Hart and Jack Black make this movie side splitting funny.
I also love how the DVD and Blu-Ray include exclusive Snapchat Augmented Reality experience. Even more fun for the family.
Easy Dinner and Snacks
We are going to have an easy dinner and snack so mom doesn't have to spend all night in the kitchen. I grabbed everything I needed for our movie night when I was at Walmart.
Banquet Mega Bowls went right into my basket for our dinner. There are several delicious varieties, but our family favorite is the Banquet Country Fried Chicken Mega Bowl. YUM…it is comfort food in a bowl!
I love that Banquet products are made in the USA and contain wholesome ingredients like real cheese, bacon, cream and even homestyle gravy! These meals are a crowd pleaser for sure.
I also grabbed some Orville Redenbacher's Popcorn to eat during the movie. Did you know that Orville Redenbacher's is the only leading brand of microwave popcorn with no Artificial Preservatives, Flavors, or Dyes in any of its products. YES!!
I like to spice my popcorn up…so some homemade seasoning was a must-have. This seasoning is easy to make and keep on hand in your pantry.
Cajun Popcorn Seasoning Ingredients
- 1 teaspoon chili powder
- 1⁄2 teaspoon onion powder
- 1⁄2 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1⁄4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
- 1⁄4 teaspoon salt
- 1⁄8 teaspoon pepper
How to Make Cajun Popcorn Seasoning
I have to tell you that this seasoning has a little kick to it. Not everyone likes that much heat in their popcorn…but it is easy to remedy the heat if necessary. Just reduce the amount of cayenne pepper and black pepper that you put in your mixture. You can half the amount…or go even lower. 🙂 You can always add more!
Mix all the spices in a bowl and stir to combine.
You can melt some butter to pour on your popcorn before you sprinkle the Cajun seasoning on top. Another good option is to spray some nonstick Olive Oil spray on the popcorn and that will help your seasoning stick without all the extra calories.
Store the extra seasoning mix in a covered container in the pantry.

More Movie Fun with Jumanji Trivia
We love to play games and I thought a little Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle Trivia would be a fun thing to add to our evening. I created some trivia cards and then made up some blank cards so everyone could write their own questions too.
It was fun to see who was really paying close attention to detail during the movie.
You can download these Jumanji trivia cards so your family can play too! Just click HERE to download.
When Is Your Jumanji Movie Night?
When is your Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle movie night planned? I have a feeling that we will be watching this movie a LOT as a family. Staying home and watching a funny movie together is one of my favorite activities.
