Four children from the same family have to leave their town because of the bombings of WWII. A woman and a professor take the children to their house. While playing a game of hide-and-seek, the youngest member of the family, Lucy, finds a wardrobe to hide in. She travels back and back into the wardrobe and finds a place named Narnia. After going in twice, the four children go in together for the last time. They battle wolves, meet talking animals, encounter an evil white witch and meet a magnificent lion named Aslan. Will this be the end of their journey to Narnia or will they stay?Written by
The original plans to set the new adaptation in the contemporary U.S. met with a hostile reception from the C.S. Lewis estate. The success of the UK-based Harry Potter franchise led the producers to rethink that stance. See more »

The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe
Four children, Peter, Susan, Edmund, and Lucy are evacuated from London during World War Ⅱ. So, they have to live in an old country house in countryside. One rainy day, Lucy found the big wardrobe in this house. Lucy steal in wardrobe, then surprisingly snow covered forest stretched away endlessly before her eyes. The snowy land is called Narnia and this land under a rule of white witch's law. Therefore Christmas never come. Four children decide to save the Narnia with lion, the true ruler of Narnia.
It's based on novel written by C.S Lewis. I watched movie, then I read the book. This movie reproduced novel in detail, but little be different. Because it not perfect, you may be discouraged. If you love Lewis's novel, you have own image of Narnia... However, story and cinematography are wonderful!! It's not only time travel story and sci-fi. If we watch this movie, we can mature to another level. This is very popular with children. But it isn't childish movie. This movie be loved not only child but adult.
