The Witch's coachman is unnamed in the book. The filmmakers named him Ginaarbrik, deciding that he is an ancestor of Nikabrik from The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian (2008). The two dwarves wear the same family ring in the films. See more »
When Edmund follows Lucy into the wardrobe, Lucy closes the door to the wardrobe, then as Edmund walks into the room the door is shown slightly open, then it is closed again when he goes to open it. See more »
Centaurs, Fauns, and Gryphons all come to life in this great body of work.
C.S. Lewis' classic is reborn in 'The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe', when four children from war-torn England find themselves transported to a land of myth and fantasy. It has been foretold that they will bring peace to Narnia. But can they survive the evil treachery of the mysterious White Witch who claims to be Queen?
In this rendition, C.S. Lewis' imagination is brought to life with amazing special effects. Centaurs, Fauns, and Gryphons all come to life in this great body of work. The whole family will enjoy this film. Liam Neeson is wonderful as Aslan the Lion.
I can not say that was all that impressed with Tilda Swinton as the White Witch. She looked the part, but did not seem as treacherous as I had hoped.
Overall this is a really good film. If you are familiar with the story, then there are no real surprises, but makes up for it with incredible CGI animation.
