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 Rilian. Together with Puddleglum the Marshwiggle, they must travel north across the mountains, dodge giants, and journey down into the earth itself to rescue Rilian from the mysterious evil that holds him bound there.

Rilian wears a mask over his face in this film, a device which does not appear in the novel. This was added to the story to keep the audience from immediately recognizing him, as Richard Henders also plays the part in a flashback earlier in the film. See more »
Mty son (7 years old) lovs this one and all of the series. I like this one in particular, largely because of Tom Baker's brilliance.
I just have a question for anyone who has watched it.
Did anyove notice that Puddleglum says the magic word (ie f*ck)?
In the scene where he gets drunk and he is picked up by the fat lady giant, Puddleglum makes some incomprehensible protests. Among this, pretty clearly, he says the magic word. My 7 year old first noticed this and told me. I told him he must be wrong. But I watched/lisstened to the offending bit and I had to tell my son that he was right. It was one of the funniest things i've ever seen / heard.
Anyway, Tom Baker is brilliant as always and he can do no wrong in my eyes.
