** Also in the book, when Leslie tells Jess that Janice's father is abusive, Jess at first responds that most kids' fathers beat them; Leslie then has to clarify that ''this'' kind of beating is the kind that gets you sent to prison. The reason why Janice was crying was that she was telling her friends, obviously looking for sympathy, and they tell the school. Jesse thinks of how stupid that was because KidsAreCruel. Understandably, in the movie this is changed to Leslie starting by saying that Janice's father hates her, hits her, and got the cops called on him, hence how everyone at school nows.

* AdaptationDisplacement: Though the book is a popular children's book, the 2007 film is often more well-known. Most fanworks are based on it and lot of fans [[complain that Leslie is too tomboyish in the 80s film]], despite that being book accurate.

* GermansLoveDavidHasselhoff: Leslie in the 2007 movie is popular on several Russian ImageBoards.



* HesJustHiding: [[spoiler:Most Fanfics for Bridge to Terabithia fall into two categories: "What If Leslie didn't die?", and "Leslie didn't die, period". This is actually done In-Universe as well, with Jesse believing that her death is all lies, believing he saw her over at her house when they went to pay their respects, and finally mistaking May-Belle's voice for Leslie's.]]

* NightmareFuel: The Dark Master. We don't get a very good look at him in the film, but a promotional still of him exists and [[http://s15.photobucket.com/user/al_finete/media/Bridge%20To%20Terabithia/Wallpaper004.jpg.html holy Hell what is that thing doing in a kids' movie]]?
** It ups the NightmareFuel when we find out that the Dark Master symbolizes [[spoiler: Jess' father played by Creator/RobertPatrick, while the father himself isn't that bad of a guy, it does stir up some repressed [[Film/Terminator2JudgmentDay T-1000]] memories. ]]

** The director of the 2007 film is the author of the book's son. So that movie is practically a grown-up Jesse remembering his own youth and his best friend back then.

** Jesse starts out as one already, though with AgeAppropriateAngst about having four sisters and having to wear hand-me-downs. [[spoiler:The angst quickly gets less age-appropriate.]]
** Leslie's parents [[spoiler:after their daughter dies in a freak accident, right in their backyard. They act gracious at the memorial service, thank Jesse for being such a good friend to her, and apologize for wanting to keep Prince Terrien as a memento.

* {{Moe}}: Maybelle. Just ... Maybelle. This is even lampshaded by Josh Hutcherson and Creator/AnnaSophiaRobb in their commentary, the former of whom calls her "just the cutest kid ever".

* TaintedByThePreview: Those who read the book knew that the story isn't a fantasy adventure, but rather the bonding experiences of two kids in a realistic setting. Seeing the 2007 film adaptation's [[NeverTrustATrailer trailers]], which centered around the fantasy world imagined by the kids but now fully populated by CGI creatures, caused them to believe that the filmmakers completely missed the point of the book and were instead trying to make a ''[[Film/TheChroniclesOfNarnia Chronicles of Narnia]]'' [[ShoddyKnockOffProduct rip-off]] that the marketing strategy seemed to promote. In some cases, this turned them off from seeing the film altogether, even though the film was actually truer to the book than the trailers would lead one to believe.
