Storyline

In World War, the four Pevenses children: Peter Susan, Edmund and Lucy are evacuated from London to the country house of an eccentric old professor. There, bored and restless, first Lucy and Edmund, and then all four of the kids make their way through an attic wardrobe in Narnia, a magical land of mythical creatures and talking animals. But Narnia is not perfect: it's always winter and never Christmas since the White Witch began her rule. And there are evil creatures as well as good, and a traitor in their midst. Only the return of Aslan can bring victory in the coming battle to win spring and freedom back to Narnia. 3x54min episodes. Written by Kathy Li

Trivia

Aslan's mane was made from real yak hair. The eyes were made softer than a real lion's, while the face had animatronic functions. Two people were inside the lion, somewhat like a pantomime horse. See more »

Goofs

When Peter is mad at Edmund for lying about being in Narnia before, his hair is moving free in the wind. In the next scene, that is at the same time period, his hair is gelled down and styled. See more »

User Reviews

Classic, wonderful, beautiful adaptation.
19 October 2001 | by See all my reviews

This series showed how a small and resourceful budget can produce the maximum feeling and atmosphere in this truly classic version. It remains, like the other dramatisations, faithful to the text, and although the special effects are cheap, remember they were state of the art in 1988 and the amazing acting from the children and Barbara Kellermann's stunningly sharp and real portrayal of the witch more than makes up for it. And by the way, unlike other reviews state, this was a series, not a movie, so isn't too long when you think about it. See it if you can, though! Truly classic version.
