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.
Four children from the same family have to leave their town because of the bombings of WWII. A women 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
Having read the book as a child I thought the whole film was a brilliant interpretation of what I read, although I imagined it set in a Victorian house, not that, that matters. The special effects with the animals are very believable as the talking and voice-overs are superb. The plot from beginning to end has been exceptionally well executed. Only with today's special effects could this film hit the nail on the spot so well, it is so real. The children play their parts spot on and Tilda Swinton/The White Witch with her black eyes and beautiful but chilling figure cuts a fetching but scary witch. I will take my children to see it, in the cinema and buy the DVD when it is out, this will be a classic movie and if the future anticipated films have the same superb ingredients the series will likewise be classics.
