From Ain't It Cool News (now that they're on my RSS feed, I wish they'd cool it with the multiple exclamation points!!!), this Charlotte's Web update from Friday:

I've just been tipped off that the teaser trailer for the upcoming CHARLOTTE'S WEB live action/CGI feature film will air tomorrow night during Nickelodeon's Kid's Choice Awards (beginning 5pm Pacific, 8pm Eastern).

The teaser has been described as "amazing"; I can't vouch for this as I haven't seen it.

The anthropomorphic barnyard creatures in the movie will be voiced by the likes of Julia Roberts, Dakota Fanning, Steve Buscemi, Ophrah Winfrey, Kathy Bates, John Cleese, Robert Redford, Thomas Hayden Church and Jennifer Garner – among others. The film’s score is composed by Danny Elfman, and I believe much of its FX work will be handled by the super-cool Tippett Studios.

I wrote about the movie, the casting, E.B. White, and other things cinarachnid back in February, so if you're a newer emdashes reader, you can time-travel.


I can’t wait for this one, the book was one of my favorites as a child, will be great to watch my own kids as they watch the book I read. If you follow! Thanks for the news, I had no clue this was going to be released!
