Upon moving into the run-down Spiderwick Estate with their mother, twin brothers Jared and Simon Grace, along with their sister Mallory, find themselves pulled into an alternate world full of faeries and other creatures.
A teenage girl discovers her father has an amazing talent to bring characters out of their books and must try to stop a freed villain from destroying them all, with the help of her father, her aunt, and a storybook's hero.
Jesse Aarons trained all summer to become the fastest runner in school, so he's very upset when newcomer Leslie Burke outruns him and everyone else. Despite this and other differences, including that she's rich, he's poor, and she's a city girl, he's a country boy, the two become fast friends. Together, they create Terabithia, a land of monsters, trolls, ogres, and giants and rule as king and queen. This friendship helps Jess deal with the tragedy that makes him realize what Leslie taught him.Written by
Towards the end of the film when Jess is squirting the paints that Leslie gave him into the creek, it is actually mayonnaise and food coloring and not real acrylic or oil paints. This was done to keep from polluting the creek and make the paints biodegradable. See more »
The painting scene at Leslie's house: The paint on the wall changes considerably between shots, appearing, then disappearing. See more »

You have to believe it, and you hate it. I don't have to believe it, and I think it's beautiful.

Typo at the ending credits (from 90:38 to 95:11 on the DVD). At 94:13 (where it is mentioned in the actors' commentary), a drawing in the background of a Squogre is labeled "Squorge". See more »
I think the previews were misleading yes .But i was very glad that there was a story instead of a bunch of bad digital junk .Most of the people in the theater were crying. Sad yes but meaningful. Well written and very likable cast .Very brave .My girlfriend and i were the only two adults without kids and i thought this really is a kids movie but by the end i would have to say it was a little much for kids under 6 or 7 it is a very sad movie .The location was very pleasing .The two main girls were very well cast very engaging and you will see the boy in upcoming films as he is a very sellable kid .I would have to say well worth the price of a ticket
