C.S. Lewis wrote some books way back when. In these series of books, we get to visit the land of Narnia, a fictional place led and protected by a Lion named Aslan.

In 2005, a British fantasy film was made based on the happenings in The Chronicles of Narnia. The first of the three-part movie was The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe. All three films are based on only three books of the books in C.S. Lewis Chronicles of Narnia series.

The film is excellent, and the depiction of the characters is captivating, it is like seeing your imagination come to life on the screen and for over two hours it seemed like I was the one on the adventure not the Pevensie children of Peter, Susan, Edmund and Lucy.
Set during World War II, the Pevensie four were sent to live with a Professor Digory Kirke's at his country home which he stays with his housekeeper Mrs Macready.

Everything seemed dull in the big house and during a hide-and-seek game Lucy decided to hide in a wardrobe. Crawling into the wardrobe led her to tumble into another world, where the snow was thick. Shock by what she saw the young Lucy encounters a faun named Mr. Tumnus who tells her she is in Narnia.

Tumnus who enjoyed meeting her, felt sad about what he had to do, and he decided not to. He woke Lucy up who had fallen asleep after listening to Tumnus playing his flute and informed her that the White Witch had instructed that any human should be brought to her.
He led Lucy back to the place they met and helped her escape back to her own world. She came out of the wardrobe to realize that the hours she had spent in Narnia had no effect on her world as it seems like she never left.

She shares the story of her time there with her siblings who didn’t believe her one bit. Things changed after a day or two when Edmund followed Lucy into the wardrobe and into Narnia where he met the White Witch. She offers him Turkish Delight and a promise to be king if he can lure his siblings into Narnia and to her. He accepted the offer and our magical tale begins from then on.

The movie is well done and grew into more two more movies, before the movie production right ended. I felt the movie production ended because after the first the remaining two movies were not brining in enough revenue for the production to continue.

This was the best of the three and a worthy film to see again or see if you have not seen it.
