I loved loved loved this movie! I was so surprised to see others did not! The music and scenes really expanded upon the book and brought Aslan to vivid life! The vocal characteristics particularly. It made me want to be in that land once again.

It was in viewing this film that I was inspired once again to pick up my copy of 'Rowan of the Wood' (Christine and Ethan Rose). They both contain misty scenes of walking at night in forests and transcending to different lands. What could be better?

The scenes with Lucy accompanying Aslan for support were my favorite part of this movie.

The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe - the second book in the Narnia Chronicles - is a faithful retelling of the C.S. Lewis story centering on four English siblings sent to the country side to escape the devistation of the German bombing campain against London during WWII.
Peter, Susan, Edmund, and Lucy are deposited at an uncles country side manor and find life there strange and dull. One day while playing hide and seek Lucy finds a magical portal inside an old wardrobe that leads to the land of Narnia, a once vibrant land now held in the frozen clutches of an evil witch.
The children eventually join forces with the true ruler of Narnia - Aslan, who must sacrifice himself to save Edmund from his own treachery.
Andrew Adamson, creator of the soon to be Shrek trilogy directed , was executive producer, and scriptwriter for The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe. He is a master at creating fanciful and breathtakingly beatiful lands populated by interesting and compelling characters.
Adamson is also at work on The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian - the fourth book in the series.
A special mention for the wonderful casting. Tilda Swinton is perfectly evil and menacing as the White Witch and all four of the Pevensie children are well presented. The voice overs by Liam Neeson; Rupert Everett ard Michael Madsen are outstanding.
