Good version for young children  Mar 7, 2008
I too am excited to find this. I remember it fondly from childhood. And it is a version that younger children will not find nearly as scary as the very enjoyable but very realistic, recently released verison in 2005.
The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe in Winter  Nov 2, 2007
I've always known Narnia, every rock, tree and stream of it, and this animated version of LWW from 1979 is spot on. Despite the rudimentary animation, the changing of the time-frame from WWII to 1979 and the American voices, it still holds the exact spirit of the novel. I would advise finding the British-voiced version, which I was finally able to get a few years ago. Aslan is a bit like Moonrazer from Rudolph, but the score is wonderful. The central core of Lewis' fantasy, that these four children are thrown into Narnia and have to grow and make decisions that will prepare them for adulthood when they return to England, is all here, something the gorgeous but overblown 2005 production lacks.

The sacrifice of Aslan is far more powerful and moving in this adaptation because we don't actually see Aslan die on camera, something I found oddly disturbing in the 2005 film which professes to be a family film. Not that I'm a prude, it's just a matter of what isn't seen being more powerful than what is seen. Nobody seems to know how to stimulate an audience's imagination now days. It's no wonder most of our children are 20% stupider than they were 25 years ago.

Get the British dub of this great film by Bill Melendez and show it to your kids. It won't make them Christians or devil-worshippers, it will make them young-at-heart for the rest of their lives.
FYI: there are two versions of this animated treatment of the beloved C.S. Lewis classic, and since they're pretty cheaply priced, I'd advise any true fan to purchase both.

The reason for this, is that the newer, Special Edition version, has been trimmed on the top and bottom of the frame, to make it widescreen (even though this site has it erroneously labelled as, Full Screen, it's widescreen).

Full screen is the way that this animated special was produced and shown, back in 1979, as it was made for TV, and was never intended to be shown in a theatre.

But why not just pick up the original, Non-special Edition version (as it is the full screen version) and not bother with this version; well, there are some very good reasons to get this version as well as the original, and that is because the, Special Edition version has some very nice extras, including an audio commentary with the director and producers, a deleted scene, as well as a nice little bit of character design sheets (including an early designs of the, White Witch) and drawings.

Also, the picture has been remastered to some extent, making the colours more vibrant and less washed out, then the previous edition.

But where the, Special Edition loses points, is it's unnecessary cropping of the top and bottom of the image, to make it widescreen.

It's actually kind of hard to watch in this widescreen version, as legs and the tops of heads are constantly being cut off to accommodate the widescreen format, which makes little sense, as the average person doesn't own a widescreen TV anyway, and even if they did, an animorphic transfer would have been more then adequate for widescreen TV viewing.

Widescreening of movies is done, in theory, to see more picture on the TV screen, and not to end up losing it, which is the problem in this case.

So, die hard fans should definitely get both versions, but for the average viewer, I'd opt for the regular edition over this one.
This is the Emmy Award winning version from childhood!!  Dec 4, 2006
At long last I found this! This is the award winning version from childhood that I remember so fondly. The book and this film hold so many dear memories to me, it's definitely a trip down nostalgia lane. I love the graphics and general direction of this movie. My nieces absolutely fell in love with it upon first viewing, and I found myself equally engaged again and feeling like a kid discovering something very magical for the very first time. I love it!!
