Synopsis

Charlotte's Web 2: Wilbur's Great Adventure
Wilbur the Pig and his friends from Zuckerman's Farm return in this direct-to-video sequel to the animated feature Charlotte's Web, which was based on the beloved children's story by E.B. White. After the passing of his pal Charlotte the spider, Wilbur (voice of David Beron) befriends Cardigan (voice of Harrison Chad), a homesick lamb who has just arrived on the farm. Wilbur and Cardigan become the best of friends, but one day Cardigan disappears and Wilbur learns Farmer Zuckerman has sold the lamb. Afraid of the fate which may befall Cardigan, Wilbur teams up with Templeton the Rat (voice of Charlie Adler) and three of Charlotte's daughters, Nellie (voice of Amanda Bynes), Joy (voice of Anndi McAfee), and Aranea (voice of Maria Bamford), to bring him back home. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi

Charlotte's Web
This animated musical, based on E.B. White's children's book classic, is about a courageous spider who helps save the life of an ill-fated pig. Wilbur is a young pig (voice of Henry Gibson) who's owned by New England farmer Homer Zuckerman (voice of Robert Holt). One day he is sold to a neighbor, where he meets a sheep who warns him that his fate lies in the confines of the slaughterhouse. Wilbur is terrified of this news until he meets Charlotte, a charming spider (voice of Debbie Reynolds), who is determined to save Wilbur from this dire destiny. By weaving words into her web, she convinces the farmer that Wilbur is some sort of prodigious animal too important to kill. The music for Charlotte's Web was written by Richard M. Sherman and Robert B. Sherman, who wrote the scores for countless Disney movies, including Mary Poppins and The Jungle Book. ~ Don Kaye, Rovi

Charlotte's Web
E.B. White's classic children's story comes to the screen in this live-action adaptation with an all-star voice cast. Fern Arable (Dakota Fanning) is a young girl growing up on her family's farm. When a sow gives birth to some piglets, Fern's father (Kevin Anderson) intends to do away with the runt of litter, but Fern has become attached to the little pig and persuades her father to let him live. The pig, named Wilbur (voice of Dominic Scott Kay), becomes Fern's pet, but when he grows larger, he's put in the care of Homer Zuckerman (Gary Basaraba), a farmer down the road. Fern is still able to visit Wilbur regularly, and it soon occurs to both of them that pigs tend to have a limited life expectancy on a farm, and that unless something unusual happens, Wilbur will eventually becomes someone's dinner. Charlotte, a friendly spider, hatches a plan to make Wilbur seem special enough to save by weaving messages about the "terrific" pig into her web, and she soon persuades her barnyard friends to join in her plan. Charlotte is voiced by Julia Roberts, while the other actors who provide the voices of the animals on Zuckerman's farm include Robert Redford, John Cleese, Oprah Winfrey, Steve Buscemi, Kathy Bates, Cedric the Entertainer. Thomas Haden Church, and André Benjamin. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi
