Jess Aarons (Josh Hutcherson) is an outsider at school. Having trained all summer to be the fastest kid in his middle school class, his is denied victory by the new girl in school, Leslie Burke (AnnaSophia Robb) who competes in the 'boys only' race and wins.
Despite this the two outsiders quickly become best friends. Leslie loves to tell stories of fantasy and magic. Jess loves to draw, but until he met Leslie it was something he kept to himself. Leslie opens a new world of imagination for Jess. Together they create the secret kingdom of Terabithia, a magical place only accessible by swinging on an old rope over a stream in the woods near their homes. There, the friends rule the kingdom, fight the Dark Master and his creatures, and plot against the school bullies. Thanks to his friendship with Leslie, Jess is changed for good.
From the producers of THE CHRONICLES OF NARNIA: THE LION, THE WITCH AND THE WARDROBE, BRIDGE TO TERABITHIA is a fantasy adventure story full of creatures, palaces and beautiful forests. The world of Terabithia is bought to life by the amazing Academy Award-winning visual effects wizards at Weta Digital (THE LORD OF THE RINGS, KING KONG).
