C.S.Lewis’ classic children’s tale is brought to life by leading animator Bill Melendez, famous for his Charlie Brown and Snoopy specials, in this magical animated film version of The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe which will be available to own on DVD from November 7th ahead of the big screen live action adaptation that will be in cinemas this Christmas. Four young children, Peter, Susan, Edmund and Lucy are evacuated to the country house of an old Professor. Whilst there, they are magically transported through an old wardrobe to the land of Narnia where an evil witch rules over the fawns, beavers and mystical creatures of the kingdom, with a magical spell that ensures it is always winter but never Christmas. Fearful that the children are the ones spoken about in an ancient prophecy that declares them the chosen rulers of Narnia, the Witch tricks Edmund into betraying his siblings and only Aslan the Lion can help them restore Springtime to Nania. Made in 1979, the Emmy Award-winning The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe perfectly captured the spirit and charm of Lewis’ famed book with a unique, visual style all its own.
