HOLLYWOOD, CALIF. – From the beloved, best-selling series of books comes the extraordinary fantasy adventure, The Spiderwick Chronicles, debuting as a two-disc Special Collector’s Edition DVD and Blu-ray on June 24, 2008. Bringing to life the fantastical, unseen world that exists all around us, The Spiderwick Chronicles is “an action-packed theme park ride” (Los Angeles Times) that is both “scary and wondrous” (Time). From the moment the Grace family moves into a secluded old house, peculiar things start to happen. Unable to explain the accidents and strange disappearances, the Grace children—Jared, Simon and Mallory—start to investigate and find the unbelievable truth of the Spiderwick Estate and the amazing creatures that inhabit it.
