Wilbur the pig is scared of the end of the season, because he knows that come that time, he will end up on the dinner table. He hatches a plan with Charlotte, a spider that lives in his pen, to ensure that this will never happen.
Nanny McPhee arrives to help a harried young mother who is trying to run the family farm while her husband is away at war, though she uses her magic to teach the woman's children and their two spoiled cousins five new lessons.
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.
Based on the beloved children's novel by E.B. White, a young girl named Fern rescues a runty piglet, raises it as her own and names him Wilbur. However, after Wilbur grows into a pig, she is compelled to sell him to her Uncle Homer Zuckerman down the street. At Zuckerman's barn, Wilbur meets a host of animals and later learns from them that come winter, he will be slaughtered for food. Fearing for his life, Charlotte, a gentle and wise spider whom befriended the lonely Wilbur, vows to save his life.Written by
There were 47 Wilburs on set because the piglets grew up so fast. Also, each one was taught only one "trick", like to stare up or to walk a certain distance. See more »
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 »
When I was a kid I loved this story. I read it in school and watched the cartoon version. Now that I'm an adult I still love this story...the movie was great, my kids loved it as well! They did an awesome job on this one! They couldn't have picked a better person to play the part of Fern. Aside for the red hair, she's perfect for the part. Well done on all accounts! Another reason this movie was terrific for me is because I absolutely love pigs! The pigs they used for the movie were adorable too! And I really liked the detail they put into Charlotte spinning her webs, it was pretty neat to watch how it's done, my kids really liked that part too.
