In 2006, another adaptation was made, this time live-action. This one was Certified Fresh by Rotten Tomatoes, thanks in part to remaining largely faithful to the source material and also, in part, due to a moving score by Music/DannyElfman. A video game based on this film was released for computer, Game Boy Advance and Nintendo DS and was reasonably well-reviewed, avoiding TheProblemWithLicensedGames.

* InkSuitActor: Charlotte's facial features seem to vaguely resemble those of Debbie Reynolds, who provides her voice. The same can be said for Templeton and his voice actor Paul Lynde.

* BrutalHonesty: A major theme of both the book and its adaptations, with Charlotte, who says she sees no point in withholding unpleasant information from a friend, representing an especially noble variety of it, and Templeton, who is rather overt about his selfish motives for what he does, representing a rather less-than-noble variety. In the animated adaptation, the sheep represents a sort of middle ground, telling Wilbur about what farms do to pigs, while the live action version gives that role to Templeton, bringing his brutal honesty even further.

* NWordPrivileges: At least in the 2006 film, only Templeton can call himself "the rat".

* UselessProtagonist: Wilbur, who pretty much does nothing the whole book. It could be argued he's more of a DecoyProtagonist (along with Fern), if you prefer to think of Charlotte as the ''actual'' main character, or that the point of his character arc is his maturing from passive piglet who needs to be rescued to proactive, mature pig who ensures the safety of Charlotte's egg sac and watches over her children after her death. As far as the adaptations go, Wilbur proves to be much more useful even ''way before'' he takes Charlotte's egg sack home with him - for example, in the animated version, he saves Charlotte from Avery by tripping the latter and making him fall and break the smelly rotten egg, whereas in the book Avery just happens to fall by accident.
