A spectacular live-action/CGI motion picture adaptation of C.S. Lewis' beloved literary classic, THE CHRONICLES OF NARNIA: THE LION, THE WITCH AND THE WARDROBE, follows four young adventurers playing hide-and-seek in the country home of an old professor, who stumble upon an enchanted wardrobe that will take them places they never dreamed. Stepping through the wardrobe door, they are whisked out of World War II London into the spectacular parallel universe known as Narnia - a fairy-tale realm of magical proportions where woodland animals talk and mythological creatures roam the hills.
But Narnia has fallen under the icy spell of a mad sorceress, cursed to suffer through a winter that never ends by the White Witch Jadis (Tilda Swinton). Now, aided by Narnia's rightful leader, the wise and mystical lion Aslan (Liam Neeson), the four Pevensie children will discover their own strength and lead Narnia into a spectacular battle to be free of the Witch's glacial enslavement forever. Touching on eternal themes of good and evil, and of the power of family, courage and hope in the darkest moments, THE LION, THE WITCH AND THE WARDROBE is a classic fable for our times.
The film marks the first live-action directorial effort for New Zealander Andrew Adamson (the OscarŽ-winning SHREK, SHREK 2), who also co-wrote the screenplay adaptation with Emmy Award-winner Anne Peacock (HBO's A LESSON BEFORE DYING) and scribes Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely. The film is produced by Academy AwardŽ-winning filmmaker Mark Johnson.
