I keep seeing the trailers for "Bridge to Terabithia," and aside from the character's names there ain't nuthin' that *I* remember from that quiet, thoughtful and rather sad book.

It's like if they made Charlotte's Web and instead had wacky adventures with Wilbur and Charlotte and Fern in the alternate universe behind the barn. Also, Templeton could maybe fly.

My thoughts, too. I think they jumped on the whole magical kingdom angle for the previews. I hope the movie doesn't totally abandon their real life situations.

See...they either have really mangled the book...or they are massively mismarketing this movie. I mean...can you imagine families taking their kids to see this thinking they're in for another Narnia...and suddenly they're dealing with Leslie dying?

These are my thoughts as well. You have taken my thoughts. "The children choose WHAT? The main character DIES?" Please may I have more fairies and trolls, Mommy?

I agree. The previews appear that the movie and the book have little to do with each other. I hope that isn't the case and it's just marketing.

I've heard tell that the previews are just really, really badly edited and the movie's not as traumatisingly rewritten as it seems.

I'm holding out hope.
