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.

Young Casey points out the stars on March 9, 2003m and the sky is very dark. She mentions several stars, including Sirius and Vega. Sirius is a winter star and Vega is a summer star. These stars are on opposite sides of the sky. They can only be seen together in early February, just after sunset. Vega would be setting and Sirius would be rising. Procyon, Capella, and Betelgeuse can all be seen near Sirius. Canopus is near Sirius too, but it's a southern star that can only be seen close to the horizon in North America. Arcturus is closer to Vega and is best seen in in the northern hemisphere in late spring to summer. See more »

The film's IMAX release presented the film open-matte, at an aspect ratio of 1.90:1, meaning there was more picture information visible in the top and bottom of the frame than in normal theaters and on home video. See more »
The only reason I didn't give it a higher review was that as an avid sci-fi reader, I can't help but notice plot holes and improbabilities in the time travel scenario as depicted. Aside from that, the movie was tautly written and dealt with some pretty heavy themes regarding environmental destruction and war. It was pretty incredible seeing the antagonist deliver some scathing denunciations of our current society, this in a Disney flick. Tautly written, family friendly, kick ass female robot and protagonist, plus George Clooney. Great entertainment with thought provoking, continually evolving plot twists. It is not a dark, depressing movie and doesn't cavil about promoting a positive future available to us as a result of our current choices.
