The tale begins as we see the Pevensie children evacuate from London during the Blitz, escaping to the safety of Professor Kirk’s stately home. Whilst exploring, the children stumble across a wardrobe, which is where they discover a gateway to another world, quickly finding themselves caught up in a deadly struggle between good and evil.
With the White Witch claiming the land as hers, Narnia has been plagued by cruelty and a never ending winter. Can the children with the help of legendary lion, Aslan, restore Narnia to the beautiful place it once was? Will they melt the snow and the witches evil plans or will it remain always winter, never summer? Enter the wardrobe and all will be answered.
