Synopsis

Double bill of family adventures based on the novel by C.S. Lewis. In 'The Chronicles of Narnia - The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe' (2005), Peter (William Moseley), Susan (Anna Popplewell), Edmund (Skandar Keynes), and Lucy (Georgie Henley) are deported from London to the house of an eccentric professor during World War II. They find life in the house extremely dull, until Lucy discovers a wardrobe that leads to a magical world called Narnia, where animals can talk and all are ruled over by the wise and benevolent lion Aslan (voice of Liam Neeson). The others don't believe her at first, but soon all of them go through the wardrobe and discover all is not well in Narnia. The land is being kept in a perpetual winter by the evil White Witch, Jadis (Tilda Swinton), who turns anyone who doesn't obey her into stone. The children join Aslan and the animals loyal to him in an attempt to vanquish Jadis. In 'The Chronicles of Narnia - Prince Caspian' (2008), the story continues as exiled heir to the throne, Prince Caspian (Ben Barnes), tries to defeat evil King Miraz (Sergio Castellitto) and regain his rightful place on the throne. Thinking it has only been one year since they last visited the magical kingdom of Narnia, the four child heroes return to discover that 1300 years have actually passed in the kingdom. With Narnia's golden age over, the usurpers, King Miraz and Queen Punaprisma (Alicia Borrachero), have taken the throne. Eager to keep his bloodline on the throne, the evil king plans to kill the rightful heir, Prince Caspian, in order that his son will inherit the kingdom. Now it's up to Peter (Moseley), Susan (Popplewell), Edmund (Keynes) and Lucy (Henley) to find Prince Caspian and, with the aid of those loyal to Narnia, restore the rightful king to the throne.
