Trivia

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 »

Goofs

Wilbur, a boar (male pig) is played by sows (female pigs). This is blatantly obvious in some scenes. See more »

Quotes

Mr. Arable: Fern, I'm really sorry, honey, but it's been long enough.
Fern: What?
Mr. Arable: Look, he's not a baby anymore. I can't have you keeping what will soon be a 300-pound pet around the house.
Fern: No. Can't he stay in the barn? Please, dad?
Mr. Arable: No.
Fern: Please?
Mr. Arable: No. Fern, look. You know I've been selling the animals to get the new harvesting equipment. Pretty soon, there's gonna be no place in the barn for a pig.
Fern: I promised I'd take care of him.
Mr. Arable: No. I'm letting you out of your promise.
Fern: I didn't promise you. I promised Wilbur.

loved it!
15 December 2006 | by See all my reviews

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.
