Nora Shepherd, is one of the supporting characters in the original Jumanji film and animated series. She is portrayed by Bebe Neuwirth in the movie and voiced by Melanie Chartoff in the TV show.


Nora is a very beautiful woman, and "particular", but she is also a strong woman, but at the same time scary. Her determination to convert the Parrish Mansion was foiled by Peter's trauma causing him to have problems at his new school from his silent demanor and Judy's lies often led to fallings out with her. Nora's hidden timidness was put to the test when the presence of Bats in her new house scared her more than she would admit, but her encounters with a stampede, a Monkey, a Pod, Crocodiles, a Lion and a transformed Peter proved to be far too much for her to bear.
