Film Plot

The film's plot is similar to that of its source material. It begins in 1940 when London is being plagued by air raids and the Pevensie children, Peter, Susan, Edmund, and Lucy are sent by their parents to the country home of Professor Kirke. Mrs. Macready, a servant, of Kirke, gives the children a few rules regarding their behavior of the house. One day while they are playing hide and seek, Lucy discovers a wardrobe and enters it. She immediately realizes that she has entered another world. Although at first her siblings don't initially believe her, ultimately they too travel into Narnia and must help Aslan, the lion messiah of Narnia, and the other inhabitants of this paralell world from freeing it from the rule of the evil Jadis the White Witch.


"This must be a simply enormous wardrobe" - Lucy
