Plot similarities between the J.R.R. Tolkien Lord of the Rings trilogy and C.S. Lewis Narnia stories was no coincidence. Both men were members of a literary discussion group known as the Inklings. Living trees that move and fight but also provide a safe zone, languages created for the legendary cultures within the mythology, rescues from towers by flying creatures are a few examples.

I grew up with this movie, and it still means a lot to me. The books are wonderful, and this miniseries followed them all very closely. Prince Caspian and Voyage of the Dawn Treader were never my favorite books in the series, but these are certainly worth watching. The entire production is very loyal, and the actors are all wonderful.
Although, I cannot help smiling when I watch a ridiculously young Samuel West walk around in tights as King Caspian - that guy was Leonard in Howards End??? Well, he's a great actor, I guess! I love these movies, and whether you have read the books or not, it is a wonderful story that the kids will love.
