Plucky farm girl Fern (Dakota Fanning) rescues Wilbur the pig – the runt of his litter – from her father’s axe. But as Wilbur grows up and faces his likely fate of becoming Sunday dinner, another friend steps in to save the day – the spider Charlotte (voiced by Julia Roberts), who spins fancy, slogan-filled webs above Wilbur’s pen to convince his guardians that he is indeed a special pig and worth saving. A charming adaptation of E.B. White’s classic children’s story with a star-studded voice cast and the young Fanning in one of her breakout roles.
