C. S. Lewis's The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe has been a fantasy classic for more than fifty years and is now a major motion picture! Peter Pevensie must keep his sisters, Susan and Lucy, and his brother, Edmund, from harm while their father is at war and their mother is back in London. The children are sent to Professor Kirke's house in the county for safety. There they discover an old wardrobe is the portal to the land of Narnia, which has been waiting one hundred years for Peter and his brother and sisters. Once they step through, they are caught in a battle against the evil White Witch. Are they really destined to be kings and queens of Narnia?
