I saw Bridge to Terabithia this past weekend with my nine-year-old daughter, who is also a huge fan of the book on which the film is based. I'll have a full review and an interview with screenwriter David Paterson to come soon, but for now, suffice it to say that any concerns I had about Disney getting away from the heart of the story and focusing too much on effects have been laid to rest. If you, like me, were a fan of the book when you were growing up, you've probably been waiting to see this film for a while, and you're going to really love what they did with the film. If you've never read the book, that's okay, you don't have to have read it to see and appreciate the film -- it's good enough to stand on its own.
To keep you satisfied until the film opens this weekend, we have some goodies for you:

Also, Disney has made available lots of images of really cool concept art from the Terabithia sequences. One of the images is above; you'll find a ton of other Terabithia images, after the jump.
