David Paterson, who was the real-life inspiration for the character of Jess Aarons, the son of Katherine Paterson (author of the original book), and producer and screenwriter for the remake Bridge to Terabithia (2007), referred to this version as being "like the crazy cousin that nobody talks about" and went on to say that "no one on our side was either involved with it or happy with the final product".

I'm posting in regards to the memory of viewing "Bridge to Terabithia" (1985) when it was released.
I'm 31 years old now, but I remember reading and viewing the film and felt that it was a great story. I have asked other people if they have ever read or watched the film. None of who I had asked ever even heard of the title. I felt disappointed in that because I think the story had a great connecting bond between the two characters and the kingdom they had was similar what I had as a kid growing up in the mid-west. We (as a child in grade school) had to read and watch the film. At the time the film wasn't all that "bad" in acting from what I remember. Twenty years later I was looking up the film to see if I could find it. To my surprise I see that Hollywood is in development for a remake in 2006 which I feel is a very good thing. Kids of today don't really know good story anymore and I hope that some kids that view the remake will help them appreciate the story in todays time.
I would just like to tell the kids out there that this story impacted me when I was in grade school and hope that it touches them in the same way.
