Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe Synopsis
THE CHRONICLES OF NARNIA: THE LION, THE WITCH AND THE WARDROBE is the spectacular liveaction/ CGI motion picture adaptation of C.S. Lewis's beloved literary classic. In World War II England the four Pevensie siblings -- Lucy, Edmund, Susan and Peter -- enter the world of Narnia through a magical wardrobe while playing a game of ‘hide-and-seek’ in the rural country home of an elderly professor. Once there, the children discover a charming, peaceful land inhabited by talking beasts, dwarfs, fauns, centaurs and giants that has become a world cursed to eternal winter by the evil White Witch, Jadis. Aided by the wise and magnificent ruler, the lion Aslan, the children fight to overcome the White Witch’s powerful hold over Narnia in a spectacular, climactic battle that will free Narnia from Jadis’ glacial powers forever.
This epic film stars Tilda Swinton (“Constantine,” “Vanilla Sky”) as the White Witch, Rupert Everett (“Shrek 2,” “Inspector Gadget”) as the voice of Mr. Fox, Jim Broadbent (Academy Award® winner Best Supporting Actor “Iris” 2001) as Professor Kirke, James McAvoy as Mr. Tumnus, and Ray Winstone (“King Arthur”) as the voice of Mr. Beaver. The children are Georgie Henley as Lucy, Skandar Keynes as Edmund, William Moseley as Peter and Anna Popplewell as Susan.
The film marks the first live-action directorial effort for New Zealander Andrew Adamson (“Shrek,” “Shrek 2”), who also co-wrote the screenplay adaptation with Emmy Award-winner Ann Peacock (HBO’s “A Lesson Before Dying”) and scribes Christopher Markus & Stephen McFeely. Based on the book by C.S. Lewis. Produced by Academy Award®-winning filmmaker Mark Johnson (Best Picture “Rain Man” 1988) and Philip Steuer.
