Editorial Reviews

The first installment in C.S. Lewis’ best-selling series The Chronicles of Narnia, The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe follows four children in their adventure through the enchanted kingdom of Narnia. While playing hide and go seek, the four siblings climb into a wardrobe that leads them into a world filled with mythical creatures and fantastic magic. The kingdom of Narnia is not all fun for the children, though. An evil witch has cast a spell on Narnia keeping it in eternal winter. To defeat the witch and restore springtime, the four children must team up with the creatures of Narnia as well as Aslan, a noble lion and the King of the Woods. Will the children be able to stop the witch or will it remain winter forever in Narnia?

2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointed! Badly cropped for false "Widescreen Effect" September 6, 2011
Verified Purchase
BUYER BEWARE: This movie is a must-own classic, but be warned that this version has been cut -very poorly, by the way- (foreheads, chins cut off, etc. It's enough to annoy long-time fans) to seem like a widescreen edition, for which one doesn't actually exist. The original made-for-tv movie was meant to be viewed in full screen format. I'm going to try to return this copy for a better version.

3.0 out of 5 stars It would have been a five... September 12, 2011
This little animated version of "The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe" was my introduction to the story and to Narnia itself. I remember seeing it on VHS, and then we got our own copy. Years later, a DVD released by Alpha & Omega Publishing was the first Narnia DVD I ever bought, but it was bare bones to say the least! Later, it was re-released by the Sterling Company twice. I bought their second version with many new bonus features. However, that had a "digitally remastered" print that had been cropped to widescreen.

I found this edition in a store and picked it up, despite seeing that it had been cropped to widescreen, because it had the British English audio as a separate track. (They had a different voice cast for the UK airing, except for Aslan.) It is also the first one to have subtitles. Most (but not all) of the bonus features from the Sterling Special Edition are carried over as well.

Though the animation is far from the animation quality that Narnia deserves, it manages to help tell the story very well, and clocking in at about 95 minutes, it is also the shortest visual adaptation of C.S. Lewis' first Narnia story, sticking very closely to the book. Most of the dialogue is even derived from Lewis' text. The only real difference is that Father Christmas does not appear and Aslan gives Peter, Susan, and Lucy their gifts.

The reason why I can't give this a five is because the picture is widescreen. If this had been how it was originally presented, I would have no problem, but this production was made in the late 1970s for television. It is NOT the complete picture, as even a new viewer should realize at seeing the tops of character's faces cut off.

5.0 out of 5 stars Just like I remembered it! April 6, 2014
Verified Purchase
This movie is, like my title, is just how I remembered it. It was a delight to watch it again, especially with my children. My youngest, who is 4, was mesmerized by the animation and story. She watched it numerous times (sometimes right after it ended)!

5.0 out of 5 stars One of my favorite versons. February 18, 2014
Verified Purchase
On of my favorite cartoons of all time. Some may say the graphics are a bit cheesy but remember when this was made. Back then it was pretty good for it's day. The voices and characters on here are so unique and strong it's hard to watch the newer versions without comparing them to this. I especially like the white queen, her expressions and voice reflections in this version are awesome.

4.0 out of 5 stars A classic movie from my childhood February 17, 2014
Verified Purchase
I remember watching this movie every time it came on TV as a kid. Now I get to share it with my quadruplet boys. The animation is pretty low quality in comparison to the CGI stuff today, but it is a great way to introduce kids to the amazing world of Narnia that C.S. Lewis created so long ago.

5.0 out of 5 stars Winter Is No More In Narnia! October 27, 2013
Verified Purchase
For those of you who don't know this, this is the first part of the "Chronicles of Narnia." There are 7 books in all. (1) "The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe," (2) "Prince Caspian," (3) "Voyage of the Dawn Treader," (4) "The Silver Chair," (5) "The Horse and His Boy," (6) "The Magician's Nephew," and (7) "The Last Battle." (Though so far, only the first 4 books have been made into movies.)

To appreciate this story the most, we have to keep in mind that C.S. Lewis was an atheist who eventually converted to Anglicanism. (Anglo Catholicism if you prefer)

The story starts with the 4 Pevensie children. (Peter, Susan, Edmund, and Lucy) The youngest one (Lucy) claims to have gone through the wardrobe, which leads to the land of Narnia, where an evil queen makes certain that it is always winter there and never Christmas. None of the other 3 children believe Lucy, but Edmund is especially rude. However, Lucy holds to her beliefs. Later Edmund finds this to be true, and runs across the evil queen. Perhaps out of feeling picked on, Edmund develops a liking for her.(It's worth noting that she has some political charm, and is even somewhat funny in this first encounter with Edmund.)

Edmund later runs into Lucy there who is now convinced Edmund will back up her story to Peter and Susan. But in an especially vile moment, he flat out denies it.

Eventually, all the children end up in Narnia, and Edmund is caught in his vile lie. The 4 children soon run across Mr. and Mrs. Beaver who explain to the children that there is an evil queen there who keeps Christmas out of Narnia. But there is hope. The noble lion Aslan (who is obviously suppose to represent Jesus is coming). We may wonder if Mr. and Mrs. Beaver represent C.S. Lewis and his wife.

5.0 out of 5 stars Same as when I was a child April 25, 2013
Verified Purchase
My mom video recording this from the tv onto VHS when I was a child. The tape is getting thin now. I bought 3 copies (one for mom, me and sister) and it is the same version as the original and pretty good quality.
