Trivia

According to the 2007 DVD director's commentary, Templeton's feasting at the fair sequence was expanded after a test audience missed the Sherman Brothers' (Robert B. Sherman and Richard M. Sherman) song, "A Veritable Smorgasbord," they remembered from Charlotte's Web (1973). See more »

Goofs

The hatching goslings are clearly ducks, not geese. Ducks have bright yellow feathers and a flat orange bill, whereas geese are duller gray with yellow underlayment of yellow feathers and a slightly pointed bill. See more »

Quotes

Charlotte A. Cavatica: Oh, Wilbur... don't you know what you've already done? You made me your friend and in doing so, you made a spider beautiful to everyone in that barn.

a very good movie
13 December 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I saw this movie with my two sons and wife and we all enjoyed it. We were very familiar with both the book and original animated movie, which we highly enjoyed. This movie is very well done both in terms of money spent, but also in the time and quality taken. The story moves along nicely, never dragging, and the emotions are never overwhelming. I do have to say that I missed Henry Gibson as the voice of Wilbur but that was a personal bias, the young actor who voiced Wilbur did a good job. My sons found many things to laugh at and the darker moments, (not wanting to spoil anything for anyone who does not know the story)are handled deftly so sensitive children will not get upset. An excellent family movie.
