Plot Summary: When Wilbur the pig is born, his life is immediately in danger. As is the custom in many farms, his inadequate size at birth prompts Mr. Arable to throw him under the axe, thinking that by doing so he will put the little runt out of his misery. Thanks to the intervention by Mr. Arable’s sensitive daughter Fern (Dakota Fanning), Wilbur is spared, adopted, and allowed to grow up as the little girl’s pet and friend. With time, he bulks up and moves out into the barn, where he meets a whole host of new and friendly animal buddies, like Gussy the mother goose (Oprah Winfrey), Golly the father goose (Cedric the Entertainer), Samuel the sheep (John Cleese), and Templeton the rat (Steve Buscemi). An unlikely, but very authentic bond develops between Wilbur and the resident spider named Charlotte (Julia Roberts) that inspires all the animals to come together as a family. When word comes out that Wilbur is destined to become supper after all, the animals, and especially Charlotte, rally to try to save him. His one hope is to be entered in the state fair and avoid death by winning the competition against other pigs.
