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
The pest trapped in the greenhouse was meant to be an opossum, but they are not indigenous to New Zealand and the production was not permitted to import them for the shoot, so a Common Brushtail Possum was used instead, which is native to Australia and was introduced in New Zealand by early settlers as a source of meat and furs.

...I check my air. I don't have as much time as I need to see everything, but that is what makes it so special.

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 »
Great movie for all ages I took my five year old and fiancé they loved it.....Josh Hutcherson was great in this and so was Anna Sophia Robb .....People actually cried and clapped after the show it touches your inner child...It will take you through a life experience that not all kids go through in life but you will be absorbed in the film as I was...If you are looking for a great film instead of all the kids movies that rely on jokes that are used over and over ...go to this film and you will be satisfied with drama, light comedy and maybe slight depression of the reality it faces, but your spirit will be lifted as will your child's.
