Julia Roberts, Dakota Fanning and Oprah

5 of 13
 
Charlotte's Web is back on the big screen, complete with real animals and an all-star cast. Julia plays Charlotte, the big-hearted spider who strikes up an unlikely friendship with a runty pig named Wilbur, voiced by Dominic Scott Kay. When Wilbur learns he's destined for the smokehouse, Charlotte weaves a daring plan to save him by spinning four miraculous webs.

Dakota Fanning shines as Fern, the little girl who first saves Wilbur. Country star Reba McEntire and Academy Award® winner Kathy Bates play Betsy and Bitsy, two barnyard cows.

Actor Steve Buscemi turns in a stellar performance as Templeton, the greedy rat; and even screen legend Robert Redford lends his voice as Ike, the panicky horse.

Cedric the Entertainer whoops it up as Golly the gander, and Oprah plays Golly's wife, Gussy, a goose with a stuttering problem.
