In 2006, a live-action adaptation was released. 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.

** In the live action film there's this moment where Charlotte is trying to get Ike the horse involved in a meeting involving Wilbur:
--->'''Charlotte''': Ike, this meeting involves every one of us.\\
'''Ike''': I just have...trouble looking at you. That's all.\\
'''Charlotte''': Well, this isn't about me, this is about Wilbur. And for the record, my view of you isn't exactly a treat, either.

Wilbur. Ike tells Charlotte that he has difficulty looking at you. That's all.\\
'''Charlotte''': Well, this isn't about me, this is about Wilbur. And for
her straight in the eyes. Charlotte retorts "For the record, my view of you isn't exactly a treat, treat either."

* WhatsInItForMe: It's a continued theme in at least the animated movie that Templeton repeatedly asks this question, and is repeatedly answered with ''very'' strong incentives. One has to wonder why Templeton hasn't learned to expect it. Only once is Templeton ''not'' threatened - and that's the final time with promises of miles of food at the fair.

* DyingAlone: Charlotte in the original novel, left behind at the fair as she is too weak even to climb down to Wilbur's crate.

** It's less out-of-nowhere in the book, where the {{Omniscient Narrator}} tells us early on that "the rat had no morals, no decency, no milk of rodent kindness, no compunctions, no higher feeling, no friendliness, no anything." But in the adaptations, without that passage, it's slightly jarring.

* SpidersAreScary: Averted. Charlotte is the nicest spider ever. As far as Ike the horse is concerned though, it's played straight, but PlayedForLaughs...[[spoiler:he mostly grows out of it at the end when Charlotte's babies hatch]].

* {{Chickification}}: Fern comes down with a ''very''' abrupt case of this in the novel. She's a nature lover who likes to sit for hours on end, quietly watching and listening to the animals in the barn cellar, and remains so right up until Wilbur's moment of triumph at the fair. At that very ''instant,'' she loses interest in the proceedings, begins begging her mother for money so that she can go on a second Ferris wheel ride with Henry Fussy, finally gets it, darts off, and never considers Wilbur again.

* AdaptedOut:The book has a scene where Nancy Arable (Fern's mom) visits psychiatrist Dr. Dorian, having been concerned about her daughter frequently visiting Homer's barn (and her seemingly telling how animals can think/talk in some way). The scene with Dr. Dorian is nowhere to be found in the animated film, but he does appear in the Live Action version, having been adapted back in.
