Storyline

Eustace is sent to a horrible school, and finds a friend in Jill Pole, who's also running from the bullies and looking for a place to hide. The two of them are magically transported from the garden shed into the magical world of Narnia, where they are entrusted with a task by Aslan: to rescue the king's stolen son, Prince Rillian. Together with Puddleglum the Marshwiggle, they must travel north across the mountains, dodge dragons and giants, and journey down into the earth itself to rescue Rillian from the Green Lady.

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 »

Quotes

Puddleglum: Suppose... suppose we have only dreamed and made up these things like sun, sky, stars, and moon, and Aslan himself. In that case, it seems to me that the made-up things are a good deal better than the real ones. And if this black pits of a kingdom is the best you can make, then it's a poor world. And we four can make a dream world to lick your real one hollow.
Green Lady: How dare you threaten me!
Puddleglum: As for me, I shall live like a Narnian even if there isn't any Narnia. So thank you very much for supper. ...

This does not age well. Pure and simple. Unlike The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe I could sit down and watch that until the end. This however is much, much worse. The premise could have been okay but it isn't in execution.

For starters the acting is atrocious. In The Lion The Witch and The Wardrobe that can be overlooked to some extent (mainly because it wasn't unbearable) but here it deserves a mention. It's like watching your household pet doing Shakespeare.

If that's not bad then the writing is even worse. I was completely unconnected to the plot. I couldn't care less about what happened to the characters. The dialogue is also awful.

Then you have even worse special effects than the first one (of which me mentioning that anywhere in a review is an achievement - just not in a good way). You have people in owl costumes saying "Tawee tawoo" repeatedly, The only effect that has even the remote chance of holding up to an audience today is Aslan.

I personally couldn't sit through this. But then again this is my opinion. I think the only entertainment value in this is laughing at the "Tawee tawoo" owls. But that loses it's novelty soon.
