From the producers of The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe and mind of author Katherine Paterson comes a rousing fantasy adventure about family, friendship, and the wondrous power of imagination. A perpetual outsider both at home and at school, Jess Aarons (Josh Hutcherson) just never seems to fit in no matter how hard he tries. When his goal to become the fastest runner in middle school is unexpectedly thwarted by newly arrived classmate Leslie Burke (AnnaSophia Robb), who enters in an "all boys" race and leaves her competitors in the dust, Jess soon strikes up a friendship with the imaginative outsider. Their bond is soon cemented thanks to Leslie's love for storytelling and Jess' skill as an artist, and the two lonely kids create a secret kingdom called Terabithia that is only accessible by swinging over a stream on a nearby rope. Though Jess and Leslie may be considered outcasts by their classmates, their adventures in Terabithia find the pair doing battle against the dreaded Dark Master and his malevolent creatures while plotting revenge against the schoolyard bullies. Now, thanks to his adventures in Terabithia and his friendship with Leslie, Jess finally finds the confidence needed to stand tall and be himself.see more...

It's a pretty good adaptation of the children's book. Plus it has Alexis Bledel before she became famous for Rory Gilmore. The movie has a great story and lessons to go with it. Definitely worth the watch.
My 10 year old loved this book so much he recommended I read it as well. Really great book!Nice story about growing up with all the difficulties and emotions that comes with it.awesome book
This is one of the books that helped me fall in love with reading! I did not like the movie at all as it did not match the pictures my imagination conjured up while reading it. It is a fantastic book to stir up a kid's imagination!
Not the best acting, but it jump started both of the young stars careers. I do like that they followed the book extremely well and it is a perfect companion to the book for the 5-6th graders who have to read it for class. It's definitely a sad story but such a great movie. Honestly, I wasn't expecting much watching this movie as a kid, because it's being main actors were young kids, with minimum acting experience at that time.
LOVE LOVE LOVE THIS MOVIE WITH ALL OF MY HEART LIKE OMG LOVE IT LOVE IT LOVE IT. IF U HAVE NOT WATCHED THIS MOVIE U NEED TO WATCH IT. YOU ARE GOING TO LOVE IT AND CRY YOU WILL END UP LOVING THIS MOVIE
This movie was just so sad it's definitely not for younger children or people who like happy endings because this movie made my kids and me cry I prefer happier endings
The story is well done. I have not read the book. I have only seen the movie. It is a very imaginative movie.. The kids of all ages should love it..but it also has a very sad part too.. I do not want to blow the story though..
Good movie but very emotional. Never read the book so wasn't prepared for the end and how to explain the loss to small children. If I had been prepared I may have enjoyed the positive parts a little more.
This book is wonderful for children. There is so much to learn about friendship and overcoming hardship in this book. It's an excellent teaching resource!
This is a sad movie but the truth is the book is 100x better. I cried reading the book but the movie kind of lost that passion the book had so while the film was sad it didn't produce tears from me.
