Of all the CS Lewis Books that delve into the mystical land of Narnia this one was the first and arguably the best. It had everything that individuals look for in a good story, the classic between good and evil. Captivating characters, epic battles and sentimental moments. So, when it became a full length motion picture put out by Disney Studios and Walden Media back in December of 2005 it was no surpsise that it becaume such a huge hit.
The movie remains true to the original book it was based on. There is the treacherous and evil White Witch who was determined to rule Narnia and and cures it with an eternal winter. There is the heroic and mystical, Aslan The Lion, who represented good. Than there were the kids who were thrust into Narnia and by prophecy were destined to become the kings and queens of the land. Perhaps, out of all the children, it was young Lucy with her innocence and her trouble making brother Edmund who seem to stand out the most. Along with them for the journey were their older siblings Peter and Susan. Edmund, unknown to the others, betrays them by getting in league with the White Witch. Eventually Edmund learns the error of his ways and atones for what he has done to Aslan. As in the books written by CS Lewis there are religious overtones in the film. The four Prevensie children are referred to as Son's of Adam and Daughter's of Eve. Also, Aslan is obviously a representation of Christ even resurrecting from the dead to do battle with evil. However, one doesn't need to necessarily be religious to appreciate the adventure and visual effects that comes about in this story.
In all there were seven stories done in Narnia Saga by CS Lewis and so far only three of them have been adapted on to the big screen. Disney and Walden Media also put out Prince Caspian as well, only to have it under perform from the first movie. Fox Pictures then put out the third installment The Voyage of the Dawn Treader, again not as huge a hit. Now as things stand the third one could be the last one adapted for the big screen.
The film adaptation of The Lion the Witch and the Wardrobe was a story that the whole family could enjoy. Just keep in mind that some of the scenes such as Aslan being sacrifaced on the stone table maybe a bit disturbing to younger children.
