|C.S. Lewis’s enchanting tale comes to life in this classic BBC adaptation from 1988. When young Second World War evacuee Lucy Pevensie hides in an old wardrobe during a game of hide and seek, she finds herself transported to the magical land of Narnia, locked in eternal winter by the evil White Witch. Her siblings do not believe her when she tells them of this strange new world, but they are soon in Narnia themselves, fighting alongside the noble lion Aslan to defeat the witch and her mighty army. This set includes the following complete stories from the book series: The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe; Prince Caspian; The Voyage of the Dawn Treader; The Silver Chair.|
Editor's NoteThese touching tales from C.S. Lewis have been brought to the screen on numerous occasions, but these BBC productions from the 1980s are among the most faithful adaptations of the great author's works. THE LION, THE WITCH AND THE WARDROBE follows four siblings--Peter (Richard Dempsey), Susan (Sophie Cook), Edmund (Jonathan R. Scott), and Lucy (Sophie Wilcox)--who discover the enchanted land of Narnia during a game of hide-and-seek. PRINCE CASPIAN & THE VOYAGE OF THE DAWN TREADER finds the young friends journeying back to Narnia a few years after their first trip, where they aid Prince Caspian (Jean Marc Perret) in defeating his uncle Miraz. This installment also sees Edmund, Lucy, and their cousin Eustace (David Thwaites) heading off on an epic voyage aboard Caspian's ship, the Dawn Treader. Finally, THE SILVER CHAIR centers on Eustace, who is sent to Narnia with a friend, and asked to locate the whereabouts of Caspian's son, Rilian (Richard Henders).

|Funny how the tables always seem to turn over time. Look at world of children’s fantasy novel adaptations, for example: nowadays, every single mythical adventure — new and old — gets a chance to either reign at the box office, or rain on it. Why? Mostly, it’s because of that modern computer imagery technology stuff. Gone are the days of lame and limp animal co-stars whose only saving grace is their voiceover talent. Now we can make every variety of critter more interesting than ever before by having them talk, grow opposable thumbs, and even upstage their human stars....read the full review|
