The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe (Four-Disc Extended Edition)

A better reason is the bonus features. The four-disc edition retains the bonus features of the previous two-disc edition (the commentaries are the same; they go silent during the extended scenes, or spill over a little bit into the next scene), and adds a third disc with a 75-minute documentary about C.S. Lewis, which should appease those who complained about the lack of attention the author had received on the earlier DVD. It discusses Lewis's life and inspirations, and is skewed somewhat toward a younger crowd with its simple animation and first-person narration. The fourth disc has a comprehensive 140-minute documentary about production--costumes, sets, music, animating animals--though not unexpectedly some of the material overlaps with the older material. All in all, Narnia fans will want to pick up this edition, but for the extra discs, not the extra footage. --David Horiuchi

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.Read more ›
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.Read more ›
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.Read more ›

|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?

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.
