Trivia: This poster, published by Harper Collins to celebrate the 50th Anniversary printings of the Chronicles, was given only to bookstores as a promotional item but can sometimes be found on e-Bay. Wish I could give this to someone as a pre-wedding gift...
For those who've been living under a rock all this time, the write-up below says it all:
"The Chronicles of Narnia:The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe, is a spectacular live-action/CGI motion picture adaptation of C.S. Lewis' beloved literary classic. Lewis' timeless adventure follows the exploits of the four Pevensie siblings – Lucy, Edmund, Susan and Peter – in World War II England who enter the world of Narnia through a magical wardrobe while playing a game of ‘hide-and-seek' in the rural country home of an elderly professor. Once there, the children discover a charming, peaceful land inhabited by talking beasts, dwarfs, fauns, centaurs and giants that has become a world cursed to eternal winter by the evil White Witch, Jadis. Under the guidance of a noble and mystical ruler, the lion Aslan, the children fight to overcome the White Witch's powerful hold over Narnia in a spectacular, climactic battle that will free Narnia from Jadis' icy spell forever."
