Item Description...
An adventure story of two brothers and two sisters who cross through an enchanted wardrobe into the magical world of Narnia, a land of talking animals and mythical creatures.
Genre: Science Fiction
Rating: UN
Release Date: 28-MAR-2006
Media Type: DVD

In a misty London train station, four siblings await their journey to the country, a place to avoid the bombs of World War II, a place where one boy imagines nothing ever happens. As it turns out, the old professor's spooky country house is ripe for exploration. Lucy, Edmund, Susan, and Peter's adventures begin when the back wall of a fur-coat filled wardrobe opens up into the magical world of Narnia, where, because of the malevolent White Witch's spell, it is "always winter and never Christmas." Before long, the children (the Sons of Adam and Daughters of Eve) are participating in an epic, allegorically Christian battle between good (Aslan the lion) and evil (as represented by the diabolical White Witch, played with wonderfully hideous zeal by Barbara Kellerman).

The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe, first published in 1950 and designed to be the second book chronologically in the Narnia series, was faithfully, painstakingly adapted into a BBC TV series, and then edited into a feature-length film in 1988. The snowy landscapes of Narnia are lovely, but youngsters accustomed to stunning silver-screen special effects may pooh-pooh this rather slow-moving, homespun production, with humans dressed like beavers, a large stuffed-animal-looking lion, and oddly patched-in Disneyesque animated winged creatures. Still, there's an arresting sweetness and simplicity to this fantasy adventure in two episodes (59 minutes and 110 minutes) that suit this old-fashioned, well-loved classic to a T. --Karin Snelson

Reviews - What do our customers think?
wrong item-sent back  Jun 13, 2007
I did not intend to order THIS item (silly me- wrong title). I sent it back. No results.
ugh!  May 11, 2007
even for the biggest narnia fan...this entire series is long, boring, drawn out....drastically different from the book and the special effects are all but non existant. if you get it to have as a part of a narnia collection it and have it and let it sit on a shelf...don't watch it!
WTF was the BBC thinking?  Nov 26, 2006
Hey everyone,

well I bought this movie 3 nights ago and was really excited to watch it. Tonight, I got the chance to watch them and i'm sorry to say: it sucked.

I watched this with my brother and we ended up turning the movie off 51 minutes into it(this is out of 169 minutes btw)!

Some things wrong with it was:
1)bad filming
2)bad casting(except for Peter,Susan,the professor and that's basically it. I read another review where a woman descibed lucy as a "chubby, buck-toothed" child- i'm sorry, but that is pretty acurate. She was really distracting, my brother and I made fun of her for much of the movie, which is why we even made it to 51 minutes!)
3)People in Animal suits- reallly? everyone could tell they're not, truthfully this didn't bother me that much- it's just i'm apart of the generation of today so i like CGI way better.

Now some good things:
1)it sticks to the story
2)the acting is pretty good (i too am an actor, so this might be a lil' too nice: the girl who plays lucy(just not who i pictured from the books) is actually not that bad!
3)the set is pretty good for the time (late 80's)

basically, i wanna return it b/c i didn't like it for the reasons aforementioned. However, if you generallly like BBC stuff and want a Narnia movie (unlike the recent one)that is truthful to the books, then this is the one to get (if unsure, just rent it beforehand)
People in animal suits?  Jul 14, 2006
I love the Chronicles of Narnia and have read them many many times. I thought that a movie would be a great idea, and even though this version is truer to the story than the new Walden Media film, it looks cheap. It was a good idea produced when technology couldn't handle the necessities of the story. People in animal suits? Nice effort, but I was turned off by the bad attempts at acting and the even worse attempts at making it look realistic. Don't waste your money on the BBC. It's not worth it.
Conserning The, BBC "REMASTERED" DVD Version  Apr 25, 2006
I wanted to love the new movie version of The Chronicles of Narnia, The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe, I really and truly did. I even convinced myself to purchase the double disc, special edition of the new film, hopping upon hope to find a new appreciation of the film through another viewing, and/or the behind the scenes extras (as has happened with a few films in the past; The Hitch-Hikers Guide To The Galaxy, for instance, even though I still find the BBC mini series of that, better, I now like the film MUCH more then I did upon first viewing)...

I actually, almost, had myself deluded into thinking that the movie and its unnecessary need to veer away from the book in both words and events, wasn't, so bad...

Then a neat thing happened to me, while researching another movie, I discovered that there was a REMASTERED edition of the original BBC mini series, on DVD coming to Canada on April 25, 2006 from Morningstar Entertainment (and already available in the U.S. through Image) and I happened to luck out and find a place that had the U.S. version in stock, for a relatively decent price (19.99 Canadian funds + tax) here in Canada.

So, I scrapped some money together (payday wasn't till Friday, and it was only Monday) picked it up, played it as soon as I got home, and suddenly, the mind laps that had me thinking that the movie wasn't so bad, was gone, for here was the real story of the wondrous land of Narnia, come to life, in all of it's glorious verse and imagery, and with no pointless need for veering from the original source material, to achieve this.

As for the newly remastered picture, well, there's still a slight bit of the ghosting that had plagued the original DVD, but the picture is much clearer, colours are much more vibrant (although, on occasion, the colour saturation is so strong that it almost looks like it had been colourized, but not enough to ruin the experience, on the contrary, as it tends to give the whole thing a more fairy tale look) and the White Witch, actually has a white, instead of off grey, complexion (which in itself is a great improvement over the older disc).

Okay, granted the F/X's are kind of hooky by today's, "Lord Of The Rings", standards, but what it lacks in flash, it more then makes up for in heart (where as the movie, is the exact opposite, having all the flash that money can buy, but very little of the heart of the original story).

So if flashy F/X are all that you crave, then I guess the new movie is for you, but if you want to feel like a kid again, feel the magic that reading the books for the first time instilled within you, then the BBC mini series is the way to go.

Here's hopping that the rest of the BBC Narnia mini series get the remastered treatment, and soon :)
