From the producers of The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe and the 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.~Jason Buchanan

Under the lens of 2018, Bridge to Tarabithia indeed has a few wonky animations that look like they were ripped straight out of a B movie, but the emotion delivered by the film’s main leads is what sticks with the viewer eve after the credits have finished rolling.
The kids love this movie and watch it over and over. While not a big fan of buying movies to own, this one has been well worth the money spent. I would buy it again and I would recommend it to anyone with kids.
This movie is an adventurous and great movie for anyone to watch. This movie is sad and funny at times and tells a great story about friendship. This movie has things that happen in real life and it is a movie that people can relate to about life.
