Jonathan R. Scott,
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.
In World War, the four Pevenses children: Peter, Susan, Edmund, and Lucy are evacuated from London to the country house of an eccentric old professor. There, bored and restless, first Lucy and Edmund, and then all four of the kids make their way through an attic wardrobe in Narnia, a magical land of mythical creatures and talking animals. But Narnia is not perfect: it's always winter and never Christmas since the White Witch began her rule. And there are evil creatures as well as good, and a traitor in their midst. Only the return of Aslan can bring victory in the coming battle to win spring and freedom back to Narnia. 3x54min episodes.Written by
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.

[the children and beavers are planning to go on the run to find Aslan and Mrs Beaver is insisting on taking loads of supplies]
I don't suppose the sewing machine is too heavy to take?
Yes it is! Anyway you didn't think you'd be able to use it when we were on the run now did you?
I just can't abide the thought of that witch fiddling with it and breaking it or stealing it most likely as not.

Several VHS releases omit the scene where the children are playing on the beach after they are crowned. It is, however, included on the R1 DVD release. See more »
For those of you who are interested in big budget films and/or today's standard of special effects, you will be very disappointed. Other than the low budget that was spent on this film, this is a wonderful adaption of C.S. Lewis's classic novel. The story takes us through the main plot of the book where Peter, Edmund, Susan, and Lucy are sent to a distant land to escape the danger and havoc of WW2. While living with an old professor they soon discover a wardrobe that takes them to the magical world of Narnia. There they face off against the White Witch with the help of different magical creatures and animal friends(and of course the king- Aslan). However repetitive this statement is, it is completely true, The movie takes you back to your childhood. This movie is full of substance and the great storyline will make you over look any faults in the special effects. Yet if somehow you are disappointed in the cinematography, just remember. This movie was made in the 80's!!!!!!!
