Principal Bentley is the man who runs Brantford High School. Four students in Brantford High School are placed in detention together by him: Spencer Gilpin, who is writing essays for his former friend, Anthony Johnson who is also in detention for cheating his homework, and Bethany Walker and Martha Kaply have both disrespected their respective teachers during class. Bentley assigns the four to clear out the school's basement, where they find Jumanji, now a five-player action-adventure console game and are sucked into the game.
- His surname is an obvious reference to Carl Bentley, both being figures that represent Brantford authority.
- Bentley detaining Anthony "Fridge" Johnson for cheating is a nod to Jumanji's intolerance for cheaters.
