Cast: Voices of Debbie Reynolds, Henry Gibson
This animated film based on E.B. White's classic is about the travails of Wilbur, a barnyard pig rescued by an artful spider, Charlotte. Thanks to Charlotte's spin -- creating words on webs -- Wilbur is anything but humble and escapes becoming dinner. The movie also features a delightful score by the Sherman Brothers (Mary Poppins).
What Parents Like: As voiced by the silver-tongued Reynolds, Charlotte makes an unusual and inventive surrogate mom. Through her sacrifices, Wilbur understands that he is much more than "some pig." The film also touches upon themes of birth, death, friendship, and joy.
What Kids Like: Every voice can be heard, no matter how small or humble.
