Lucy and Edmund Pevensie return to Narnia with their cousin Eustace where they meet up with Prince Caspian for a trip across the sea aboard the royal ship The Dawn Treader. Along the way they encounter dragons, dwarves, merfolk, and a band of lost warriors before reaching the edge of the world.
It's Harry's third year at Hogwarts; not only does he have a new "Defense Against the Dark Arts" teacher, but there is also trouble brewing. Convicted murderer Sirius Black has escaped the Wizards' Prison and is coming after Harry.
When the Pevensie family are evacuated out to the country, they are unaware of the adventure they will encounter. During a game of hide and seek, the youngest daughter, Lucy (Henley) discovers a wardrobe which transports her to the land of Narnia. Covered in snow, Narnia is full of weird and wonderful creatures, but is watched over by the evil White Witch, Jadis (Swinton). When all four Pevensie children end up through the wardrobe, they discover that it was meant to be, as two daughters of Eve and two sons of Adam must join with the mighty lion, Aslan (Neeson) to defeat the evil White Witch.

The four kids made up a dance which they sang to whenever Andrew Adamson said "check the gate" after each take. "Check the gate" means check that there are no hairs or other foreign bodies between the film and the gate which holds the film in a flat plane within the camera; such hairs would show up on the film and make the shot useless.

In the beginning, when the German airplanes are bombing London
and Edmund and Peter are in the garden in front of their house, you can see the shadows of the airplanes on the ground. This is not possible because it is night and there is no light above the airplanes that could cause those shadows. On the contrary, searchlights tried to discover those airplanes from below pointing into the sky. If there was a light above the airplanes strong enough to create shadows, they would be moving much faster. See more »
I went to see the new Narnia movie tonight, and I have to say, I was extremely impressed. The story was touching and powerful, the acting was exceptional, and the special effects were amazing! I was never been into fantasy movies until Lord of the Rings came out, which I thought was great. This movie was also very very good. From the beginning of the movie, I felt swept away into the story. I am rarely excited about new movies, but I was about this one, and it totally exceeded my expectations.
I highly recommend this film. It is based on a kid's book, but it appeals to people from every background and age.
I think we are witnessing the beginning of an awesome epic series! 10 Stars!
