I don't know how I missed this, but I just learned that Disney and Walden Media are making Bridge to Terabithia for 2007! This is one of my favorite books, written by Katherine Paterson and winner of the Newbury Medal. It was for me, my adult introduction to children's literature; and I've taken as many friends as I can Terabithia. I've found the official website and watched a snippet of the trailer. It seems at least adequate. But I'm still anxious -- as LOTR fans worried over those movies, and as I wondered about The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe, now I wonder if my favorite book will be revealed on screen, or mocked with mediocrity. Anyone else know about the movie? Or even familar with the book? [EDIT] I watched the entire trailer. Oh. It's all wrong. This is not good. I'm not sure what story is being told, but it doesn't seem to be the book I read. I hope I'm wrong, but this is not at all how I'd expect the movie to go.
