Peculiar things start to happen the moment the Grace family (Jared, his twin brother Simon, sister Mallory and their mom) leave New York and move into the secluded old house owned by their great, great uncle Arthur Spiderwick. Unable to explain the strange disappearances and accidents that seem to be happening on a daily basis, the family blames Jared. When he, Simon and Mallory investigate what’s really going on, they uncover the fantastic truth of the Spiderwick estate and of the creatures that inhabit it.
Based on the delightful books created by Holly Black and Tony DiTerlizzi for children ages 9-12 (and enjoyed by children 12-100), it looks like this film is going to be a happy Valentine!
The Spiderwick Chronicles opens February 15th, 2008 and stars Freddie Highmore and Sarah Bolger. Be sure to visit the official movie website; it’s loaded with fun: things to find, games to play, more trailers, and is just beautifully designed!
Many thx to SDD for the heads up!
