Alternate Versions

The original theatrical version of this film was released by Walt Disney Pictures, but all television, video, and theatrical re-issue versions of the film are distributed by 20th Century Fox. As a result, the current version in circulation opens with a 20th Century Fox logo. This happened as a result of Disney deciding against its distribution deal when it expired in 2010; Walden Media sold its share of the rights to 20th Century Fox that year. See more »

More LOTR than CSL but still great fun
28 June 2008 | by yoel_marsonSee all my reviews

Taking kids to the cinema can sometimes be painful but this trip was as much for me as them; i have read the book countless times and have just finished it with my eldest daughter.

The film was more LOTR than CS Lewis and don't know what he would have made of this interpretation. There was just enough in common with the book as to transfer the empathy that i have built with the characters over the last 25 years. There were some changes and original scenes that were totally unnecessary and the tone of the movie was much darker and action oriented than the book.

The upside is that aside from that it was a very well made film, almost up there with LOTR in terms of great fantasy and infinitely more appealing to anyone over 12 years old than Harry Potter.

After fictitiously originating the pevensies from finchley in the 1st movie, he has now made the telmarines Spanish and that sort of worked OK. The pevensies and caspian were close to what i would have imagined and the supporting cast of dwarfs and mice were excellent.

Another 2 years to wait till Voyage of the Dawntreader; would have liked to have seen Horse and his boy next. Mind you, in theory that could be done in 10 years time with the same actors.

All in all, a great improvement on the lion, the witch and the wardrobe.
