Plot

A 12-year-old boy named Jesse "Jess" Aarons (Josh Hutcherson) is an aspiring artist and elementary school boy living in a financially-struggling family and 12-year-old Leslie Burke (AnnaSophia Robb) is the new girl full of joy and wonder with a vast imagination, at Jess' school, just moving to Lark Creek (Jess's small town). She enters a running event which she wins with ease, despite her classmates calling it a "boys only" race. Jess is, at first, quite sour about this and wants nothing to do with Leslie, but Leslie's persistence in meeting him soon pays off, and soon the two become very close friends. Their friendship starts when Leslie offers Jess a piece of Juicy Fruit gum on the bus, and he accepts. Jess shares his secret love of drawing with Leslie. Together they venture into the woods, where they swing across a creek on a rope and find an abandoned tree house on the other side. Here, the two friends invent a new world they call Terabithia, and it comes to life through their eyes as they explore together. Back in the "real" world, they both plot against bullies at their school. Leslie gives Jess an unexpected birthday present, an art kit, and he gives Leslie a dog (Prince Terrien) in return, much to both of the children's happiness. Leslie thanks Jess by hugging him. On the next trip to Terabithia later that day, it is noted that the river beneath the rope has begun to swell, there is increasing tension as Leslie and then Jess swing across the creek, their feet brushing across the water. Joshua Ryan Hutcherson (born October 12, 1992) is an American film and television actor. ... AnnaSophia Robb (born December 8, 1993) is an American film and television actress, as well as an occasional singer. ...


At the end of a particular visit to Terabithia, Jess watches Leslie run back to her house, (the same way he would watch his music teacher) suddenly realizing he loves her. Early the next morning, Jess' music teacher, Ms. Edmunds (Zooey Deschanel), who has noticed Jess' artistic interests, calls to invite him on a field trip to an art museum. He makes an effort to ask his mother's permission; she is half-asleep and doesn't actually say anything, but he is so eager to go that he assumes she agreed. He has an unspoken crush on the beautiful and personable teacher and does not want to share the trip with Leslie; he merely looks at her home as they drive by. Zooey Claire Deschanel (born January 17, 1980) is an American actress, musician and singer. ...


When he returns, his father (Robert Patrick) and mother are worried sick, not knowing where he has been all day. He hears the horrifying news that Leslie died trying to swing across the rain-swollen creek. The rope broke and she fell in, drowning after hitting her head on something, possibly a rock, which knocked her unconscious. Jess suffers much grief, and he and his parents visit the Burke family home to "pay their respects". Robert Patrick (born November 5, 1958) is a Saturn Award-winning American film and television actor. ...


Jess feels overwhelming guilt for Leslie's death, but his father consoles him to keep their intense friendship alive for her sake. So, Jess re-imagines Terabithia and builds a bridge across the river to welcome a new ruler. He invites his sister, May Belle Aarons (Bailee Madison) to be that new ruler, who is delighted after being previously denied any opportunity to enter the land. She and Jess bring back Terabithia in even greater splendor; Jess the king and his sister the princess, and they rule together .[1][2] Bailee Madison (born October 15, 1999) is an American actress. ...

Background and production

The filmmakers have disavowed the advertisement campaign for the film saying that the advertising is deliberately misleading; making the film seem to be about or occurring in a fantasy world like that of Spiderwick, Harry Potter, The Chronicles of Narnia, or His Dark Materials[3]. David L. Paterson in the SCI FI Wire article was surprised by the trailer, but understood the marketing reasoning behind it saying: This article is about the novel. ... This article is about the Harry Potter series of novels. ... Narnia redirects here. ... The trilogy (U.K versions), in order of succession from left to right. ... This article is about the screenwriter David L. Paterson. ...

Although there is a generation that is very familiar with the book, if you are over 40, then you probably haven't, and we need to reach them. [...] Everyone who read the book and sees the trailer says, 'What is this? This is nothing like the book. What are you doing, Dave?' And I say, 'You know what you're seeing is 15 seconds of a 90-minute film. Give me a little leeway and respect. Go see it, and then tell me what you think.[3]

David Lord Paterson is one of the producers and screenwriters[4] for Bridge to Terabithia. His name appears on the dedication page in his mother's novel Bridge to Terabithia. The story was based on his real life friend, Lisa Hill, who was struck by lightning and killed when they were eight years old.[5][6] Paterson, an alumnus of the The Catholic University of America,[7] held a special advance screening of the film for members of the CUA community at the AFI Silver Theatre in Silver Spring, Maryland on February 1, 2007.

Differences between film and book

The book has several noticeable differences from the theatrical film; commonly noticed ones are Leslie's appearance and the switch of roles at certain parts of the story.

  • Jess waves to Janice when he gets off the bus, in the film it's Leslie.
  • Jess's parents are wary about him hanging around with a girl, in the film his mother is pleased.
  • Leslie introduces herself to Jess at the fence between their homes before school starts. In the film, they first meet when she is placed in his class.
  • Jess goes to the grove of pines (not present in the film) with a wreath, instead of making a boat like in the film.
  • Leslie's hair is brown and Jesse's is blonde in the book, but in the movie it's swapped.

Leslie Burke's character has gone through a big change from book to film, examples include:

  • In the book Jess has trouble figuring out her gender on their first meeting, in the film she is clearly a girl.
  • In the book her character is an agnostic where as in the film she just lacks Jess's Christian beliefs.
  • In the film she is a slightly different character and thus handles situations differently. She runs away when Jess confronts her after she tells the class she has no television, while in the film she withdraws it all. In the book there are different instances where she raises her voice or pulled stern looks, in the film there is none.
  • Leslie refers to her parents by their first names, rather than as "Mother" and "Father" (as part of their new-age upbringing). Also, the parents come across as hippies. In the movie, this plot element is lost.
