We had my younger son's 9th birthday at a 'dinner theater' showing Terabithia, and the kids (15 between 7 and 10) were all fine. My 9 year old is very sensitive and came and sat on my lap when he knew that certain scene was impending, but I think it bothered me more than him
Important thing - the trailer makes it look like a 'Narnia clone'. It isn't. Reading the book will take an adult a couple of hours, and took each of my kids about the same time. It is worth reading, regardless. We made sure we communicated to all of the parents what would be happening in the movie so they could prepare the kids if necessary.
I don't think they are too young, but it is more about their perception and acceptance of emotional scenes in movies, when sad things happen.
