Trivia

There are three versions of Peter's sword: steel, aluminum, and rubber. William Moseley preferred working with the aluminum swords for the fighting scenes because they were a lot lighter and "they didn't bounce like the rubber swords." See more »

Goofs

When Lucy closes the spare room door, the sound is of a modern tube latch striking a faceplate. But the door shown has an old-fashioned cupboard latch, which would sound different when closing. See more »

Narnia!
9 December 2005 | by joelseph2008See all my reviews

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!
