In the middle of a war, four young children were sent to a country home to stay safe until the conflict is over. What they found there was an adventure so great, its story has been cherished by generations. That story is The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe: The Chronicles of Narnia.
Peter, Edmund, Susan, and Lucy are your typical English children. They like to play games, chase one another around, and go on grand adventures, if only in their imaginations. But one rainy day, during a game of hide-and-seek, Lucy stumbles upon a world so fantastical that, although it is real, seems as though it could only have been imagined. In the back of a wardrobe, she finds a whole world. A world where animals talk, where mystical creatures like Fawns exist, and where time travels at a rate much faster than our own world. A world called Narnia.
This wonderful world is not without its flaws, however. It is ruled over by an evil witch, who has declared herself to be queen of the entire realm. The witch has cast a spell over the whole land to make it so that it is always winter. Always winter, but never Christmas, that is. Despite having many things too wonderful to imagine, Narnia is a bleak and dreary place under the rule of the White Witch.
But there is an ancient prophecy which promises deliverance from this evil. It tells of a time when two sons of Adam and two daughters of Eve will journey forth into Narnia. Aided by a lion named Aslan, it is said that they will break the White Witch's curse and bring a new era of peace and harmony to the world. Could Lucy and her siblings be the ones of whom the prophecy foretold? Will Aslan return? Does he even exist at all? Only time will tell.
