Extracts from this document...

Introduction

Narnia Review Is The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe one of the best stories ever told? I say it is. The beloved fantasy adventure was bound to turn into a motion picture. I saw the movie on DVD at home one evening. My favorite part of the movie is the scene in which Lucy meets the Faun and the wonderful journey into the land of Narnia begins. So, come find out about "what is with" Narnia and this must see movie. "Narnia? What's that?" said Lucy. "This is the land of Narnia," said the Faun, "where we are now; all that lies between the lamp-post and the great castle of Cair Paravel on the Eastern sea...." -The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe. This is my favorite line from C. S. Lewis' novel not only because it marks the beginning of the great adventure, but because it is also the part I remember the most. Now, how can anyone forget one of the best series around, The Chronicles of Narnia? ...read more.

Middle

Many readers, including myself, do not follow that chronological order. This makes it more fun for readers when they can decide which way to read the series. As for the movie version, I heard the film makers will continue the series using Lewis' publican order. The movie's setting occurs around the beginning of WWII in London. The four siblings' father is in the war; and, Peter, the leader of the bunch, Susan, the motherly figure, Edmund, the lost middle child, and Lucy, with the sweetest heart, leave their unsafe home and stay with an elderly professor at his mansion-type home. This is where a not so ordinary wardrobe is found and within it the land of Narnia is discovered; a land full of beasts, like the lion Aslan, fauns, like Mr. Tumnus, and other amazing creatures. I cannot forget the horrible White Witch, Jadis, who makes it winter all year round. The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe is filled with cool-looking creatures, awesome acting, and a phenomenal plot. ...read more.

Conclusion

I enjoy the movie just as much. And, if you are wondering which one really is better... some say that the book -or the original- is better than the movie. I recommend that you discover The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe. This movie is for all audiences; however beware: There are battle scenes. If you like any of these stories, such as, Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings, Shrek, The Giving Tree, and The High king, you will like The Chronicles of Narnia too. Are you ready to see the movie? It should be available at any store or movie rental place. Then, you can decide whether the book is better than the movie, which line you like the most, which creature looks the coolest, as well as figure out the meanings of Lewis' book. I will not tell you any more because I know you want to see this must see movie and will enjoy figuring the story out for your self because The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe is enchantingly delightful. ...read more.
