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
The movie had two fake working titles: "The Hundred Year Winter" and "Paravel." Signs in Auckland that directed extras and crew to the sets had "Paravel" written on them. See more »
During Hide & Seek, Lucy tries a door at the end of the hallway, but it's locked. She tries the door to the right about five steps away, and it opens into the spare room with the wardrobe, but the entire left wall has windows; this would not have been possible if there were a room on the other side of the wall. In fact, there is a window to Lucy's immediate left upon entering (with the short cut of the buzzing fly). The only way this would have been possible within the layout of the house is if the locked door in the hallway was to a very shallow closet. See more »
I was fortunate enough to attend an advanced screening and was magnificently surprised. The film was beautifully made. The acting/voices were all wonderful, including the young talent. I think all ages will be entertained. The story contains important lessons for children, but also relevant reminders for adults. I also think attempts to compare the film to Lord of the Rings and/or Harry Potter would be unfortunate for all parties. They are each uniquely wonderful. Make sure you see this!
By the way, make sure you stay through the end credits to hear a beautiful song Alanis Morisette wrote especially for the film.
