Introducing the classic tale of inspiration and friendship to a new generation, Charlotte’s Web springs to life in the acclaimed live-action adaptation arriving on DVD April 3, 2007 from Paramount Home Entertainment. Based on the best-selling children’s paperback book of all-time, this heartwarming film stars Dakota Fanning as Fern and features a stellar voice cast including Academy Award® winner Julia Roberts as Charlotte, Oprah Winfrey as Gussy, Academy Award winner Robert Redford as Ike, Steve Buscemi as Templeton, Academy Award® winner Kathy Bates as Bitsy, André Benjamin as Elwyn, John Cleese as Samuel, Thomas Haden Church as Brooks, Cedric The Entertainer as Golly, Reba McEntire as Betsy and Dominic Scott Kay as Wilbur.
The Charlotte’s Web DVD bonus features spin a web full of fun including “Flacka’s Pig Tales,” a tongue-in-cheek look at the on-set antics of the farm animals hosted by one of the real-life pigs from the film, a storybook creator that allows kids to use actual backgrounds, characters and dialogue from the movie to make their own all-new themed adventures, a gag reel, a music video featuring three-time Grammy® Award winner Sarah McLachlan performing her hit song “Ordinary Miracle,” and much more.
The movie is based upon the acclaimed novel by the same name and was a hit with children everywhere. However, some adults had reservations. “I was a bit disappointed with the addition of some bathroom humor into this film,” says Nashville’s Beth Bradshaw. “This story stands on its own and didn’t need anyone’s ‘help’ for it to be funny. Rather it takes away from the wonderful story that is really there.”
The Charlotte’s Web DVD will be available to own for $19.95 M.A.P. (U.S.)/$36.99 S.R.P. (Canada).
Seems to me, dealing with a sick dog, topped this movie off.
