Trivia

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".

Great movie from my childhood
23 May 2003 | by (Ohio, USA) – See all my reviews

I remember watching it as a child of 8 yrs old and it brought a tear to my eye. What a great movie. The acting was wonderful for that time, and I consider it to still be good. The movie was short, but to an 8 yr old, it was just about right. See it if you have the chance. Let your kids watch it if you will.
