"If you are familiar with the book, this is the best adaptation."
5 stars"

If you prefer substance over special effects, and know the book well, then this is definitely far more enjoyable than the recent film. This adaptation was not dumbed down in any way and faithfully follows the book, and doesn't add anything out of place. The acting couldn't be better. The incidental music by Geoffrey Burgon is a perfect fit. Everything you would expect from a BBC production, except that given it's age the special effects might seem a little dated – although they are imaginative and have used the technology available at the time to good effect.


The Chronicles Of Narnia – The Lion, The Witch And The Wardrobe (BBC)

This breathtaking production of C.S.Lewis's po­werful fantasy adventure for all ages uses live-action, animation, and stunning special effects to recreate the most exciting and enchanting story of all. Narnia is a magical world, a land of dwarves, nymphs, and giants, a bewitched land where fauns carry umbrellas and brew tea, where animals talk and horses fly. It is the land of Aslan, the great lion who can warm the coldest heart. It is also the land of Lion's arch-enemy, the White Witch who ensures that in Narnia it is always winter but never Christmas.

It is a quiet day in the countryside when Peter, Susan, Edmund and Lucy stumble through the back of an old wardrobe into the enchanted land of Narnia. When the White Witch learns of their presence, their lives are in danger, but there is talk that Aslan is on the move…Spring is in the air – but the White Witch tightens her grip and plans the destruction of the children and Aslan. Her triumph looks certain but the magnificent Aslan risks everything and calls on the Deeper Magic from Before the Dawn of Time.

  • " A fun and literate package. " – Ed Gonzalez
  • " It's easy to see why Disney chose to start with The Witch and the Wardrobe. " – Sandra Hall
