Charlotte's Web photo premiere

Hey movie fans, here's one for the young and the young at heart. Moviefone has landed the exclusive look at the first photo of kindly arachnid Charlotte (voiced by Julia Roberts) from the upcoming live-action 'Charlotte's Web.' Anyone who grew up or had a kid in the '70s and '80s is probably familiar with E.B. White's beloved novel -- and the 1973 animated film based upon it -- about a spider named Charlotte who aids a pig named Wilbur in his attempts to avoid the undesirable fate of ending up as some sort of pre-packaged breakfast meat.

Featuring the voice talents of Steve Buscemi, Oprah Winfrey, John Cleese and Robert Redford (among others) and starring acting wunderkind Dakota Fanning (in the flesh) as the pure-hearted Fern, the film hits theaters December 20.
