Must See Movie "The Chronicles Of Narnia: The Lion, The Witch, And The Wardrobe"

945 words - 4 pages

Is "The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe" one of the best stories ever told? I say it is. The beloved fantasy adventure was bound to turn into a motion picture. I saw the movie on DVD at home one evening. My favorite part of the movie is the scene in which Lucy meets the Faun and the wonderful journey into the land of Narnia begins. So, come find out about "what is with" Narnia and this must see movie.

"Narnia? What's that?" said Lucy. "This is the land of Narnia," said the Faun, "where we are now; all that lies between the lamp-post and the great castle of Cair Paravel on the Eastern sea...."

Many readers, including myself, do not follow that chronological order. This makes it more fun for readers when they can decide which way to read the series. As for the movie version, I heard the film makers will continue the series using Lewis' publican order.
The movie's setting occurs around the beginning of WWII in London. The four siblings' father is in the war; and, Peter, the leader of the bunch, Susan, the motherly figure, Edmund, the lost middle child, and Lucy, with the sweetest heart, leave their unsafe home and stay with an elderly professor at his mansion-type home. This is where a not so ordinary wardrobe is found and within it the land of Narnia is discovered; a land full of beasts, like the lion Aslan, fauns, like Mr. Tumnus, and other amazing creatures. I cannot forget the horrible White Witch, Jadis, who makes it winter all year round.
The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe is filled with cool-looking creatures, awesome acting, and a phenomenal plot. The plot begins to unfold when heroic Aslan agrees to give himself over to the evil White Witch as a trade for the human boy, Edmund, who is supposed to become one of the kings of Narnia. Aslain, a lion messiah, knows he must do this dreadful task in order to save the boy's life as well as the destiny of Narnia. The witch agrees to take the lion in the boy's place. The four children try to figure out how to free Narnia from the witch on their own.
The meanings alone impel me to read and watch The Lion, the Witch, and the...
