From novel by: C. S. Lewis

Keywords: Fantasy

Film adaptation of the C. S. Lewis novel of the same name details the adventures of four small children in a magical land accessible through a wardrobe.

World War II comes to the United Kingdom's shores, forcing the Pevensie family to evacuate to the countryside as ceaseless Nazi bombing raids lay waste to Britannia's biggest cities. Lucy, the youngest of the four Pevensie children, discovers a wardrobe in the course of a hide-and-seek game at their new place of residence containing a portal to a land known as Narnia, soon bringing her three siblings along on a grand quest to liberate the whimsical realm from iron-fisted rule at the hands of wicked witch Jadis, teaming up with erudite lion Aslan on their way to accomplishing their objective.
