Product Description

Prepare to enter another world when Walt Disney Pictures and Walden Media present C.S. Lewis' timeless and beloved adventure. With the stunningly realistic special effects, you'll experience the exploits of Lucy, Edmund, Susan, and Peter, four siblings who find the world of Narnia through a magical wardrobe while playing a game of "hide-and-seek" at the country estate of a mysterious professor. Once there, the children discover a charming, once peaceful land inhabited by talking beasts, dwarfs, fauns, centaurs, and giants that has been turned into a world of eternal winter by the evil White Witch, Jadis. Aided by the wise and magnificent lion Aslan, the children lead Narnia into a spectacular climactic battle to be free of the Witch's glacial powers forever!

Additional Features

Two-Disc Special Edition Features

Both the two-disc special edition and the single-disc editions feature a filmmakers' commentary and another one by director Andrew Adamson and the child actors. The exhaustive second disc in this version, however, is the main attraction here. One section, entitled "Creating Narnia," details the journey of Adamson from directing newbie (previous credits include Shrek and Shrek 2, but no live-action films) to helmer of a lavish production based on a beloved classic. How did he do it? By treating Narnia as a world that could actually exist in a parallel universe rather than a fantasyland. The behind-the-scenes documentary is quite engrossing, particularly when the visual-effects crew good-naturedly complains how Adamson's own background in visual effects made him simultaneously more respectable and more difficult to work with. A separate featurette on the child actors reveals how Adamson blindfolded Georgie Henley (who plays Lucy, the littlest Pevensie child) before bringing her onto the snowy Narnia set so that her initial reaction could be captured on film. Henley, who frequently mouthed her co-star's lines with them and sprouted several inches during production, proved to be the precocious handful of the bunch, but the documentary does a good job showing the wide-eyed elation you'd imagine children would have making such a film.

Eight different members of the film team (production design, cinematography, and music) also get their own featurette, and massive amounts of footage are devoted to the construction of the various creatures. There's even a virtual map of Narnia and a timeline to demonstrate the 15 years that pass in Narnia vs. the mere seconds back outside the wardrobe. One complaint: that author C.S. Lewis is hardly mentioned by the filmmakers. His own little featurette mentions once that he is a "theologian," but glosses over his top-selling books' ties to Christianity. Nevertheless, if you're debating which Narnia to purchase, you're better off investing in the two-disc version--a virtual closetful of goodies for fans of the film. --Ellen A. Kim

If you're going to bring a beloved classic to life, you had better do it right - and director Andrew Adamson did just that, largely because of his own special memories of reading the book as a child. The timing for this film was also right - not only because it follows in the wake of the masterful Lord of the Rings series (and there will always be comparisons between Narnia and LOTR, despite their vast differences) but, more importantly, because this film really could not have been made any earlier. I wasn't a big fan of CGI when the technology emerged; I thought it took away from the purity of the medium and, of course, it was oftentimes obviously not real in those early days. When you watch The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe, though, you see the undeniable magic that CGI has now opened up. This film is heavy with computer animation, and its integration with real actors and sets is virtually seamless. Aslan, by way of example, may well be CGI's highest achievement to date. For one thing, he looks bloody real in every scene, but what is truly amazing is the depth of feeling and emotion that comes through in his face and gestures, particularly during the scene at the Stone Slab.

There's really far more to praise about this film than I have time or room for. I'll just say the cinematography and music are masterful, and the creation of the different creatures (be they computer-generated or wonders of costuming) are incredibly detailed and realistic. I just want to hurry up and talk about the children playing the Pevensie siblings. Do they give awards for best casting? If they don't, they certainly should, and this film would take that prize hands-down.

Young Lucy Pevenise, along with her older brothers Edmund and Peter, and her older sister, Susan, are in London during the initial bombing raids of WW II. And like many families of the time, the parents decide to send them to the country for safer keeping. Peter, the oldest, is told by their mother to "watch over them" and make sure they stay safe. And although this seems like a fairly simple request, Peter's ability to protect his siblings will be put to the ultimate test. But not by WW II, but by an amazing secret discovered by young Lucy.

Soon after being spirited into the company of a hermit-like professor's care (Jim Broadbent), they decide to play hide-and-seek, and it's during this game which Lucy discovers a mysterious wardrobe. She tucks herself inside and backs to the rear of the cabinet ...only to discover herself in an entirely different world. Here she meets up with Mr. Tumnus, a strange half-stag, half-human creature who explains much about the wintry landscape Lucy now finds herself in. The place is called Narnia, and it's been locked in winter for over 100 years by someone known as "The White Witch" (who claims to be the Queen of Narnia).

Lucy, excited beyond words, rushes back to "the real world" to tell her brothers and sister about what she's discovered and, of course, they don't believe her ...until they all get into the wardrobe one day and find out she's been telling the truth.

Soon a prophecy is revealed to the two brothers and two sisters: it is said that when Aslan returns, two daughters of Eve and two sons of Adam will come back and reclaim the four thrones of Narnia.

I just went to see this movie last night and WOW, it is really breathtaking and superbly done. The most important thing that was achieved is that the producers of this film captured the essence of Narnia. You really feel like you've been to Narnia and to me that makes the film tremendously powerful. The death and resurrection of Aslan were really fantastic, and I also especially liked the Lucy/Tumnus meeting and also when the children grew up in Narnia and were looking for the White Stag. How did they get adult actors who looked SO much like the children, I'd like to know?! Well done! Georgie Henley was terrific in this movie and really stole the show. She was the perfect Lucy. The casting for this film was really well done. The only character I did not care for was The White Witch. In other movie versions, perhaps the role is "over-played" and so because of that the role seemed to be "under-played" in this case. I don't know if a happy medium exists to be truthful. The producers did maintain the Christian symbolism, that C.S. Lewis called "a supposal" not an allegory, but this was not overly obvious. The film certainly can be appreciated in different ways.

Some of the minor changes to the storyline and dialogue did irritate me, just because I know the novel SO well. I would have liked more of Lewis' humour to be maintained instead of the humour that was added by the screenwriters. Most noticeably is the absence of the development of Mrs. Beaver with her cute statements about the bread knife & sewing machine. They also removed the scene in which the animals were having a party with food & drink given to them by Father Christmas - you know the part where the witch turns them into stone. Instead they developed the fox character and used him alone in this altered scenerio.

Lewis' Narnia is an allegory of his highly unwelcome love for Virginia...
I think that must be who they, whoever this is, meant in suggesting this missed romance (COUGH!) but where, oh WHERE, is there any idea or indication or reference that CS Lewis had a thing for Virginia Woolf? And if that's true, how is this an allegory for said unrequited love?

Extended Editions: Narnia
Yes the only reason I'm going to get The Lion The Witch and The Wardrobe on Blu-ray is if it's an extended edition..

Well then d'oh! to you! You could have bought a used 2-disc edition for a tiny fraction of the price (around $6-8), if cost was an issue. You obviously don't know how to shop, and that isn't Amazon's fault. Whiner.
