Narnia is a magical world, a land of dwarves, nymphs and giants, a bewitched land where fauns carry umbrellas and brew tea, where animals talk and horses fly. It is the land of Aslan, the great lion who can warm the coldest heart. It is also the land of the Lion's arch enemy, the White Witch who ensures that in Narnia it is always winter but never Christmas. It is a quiet day in the countryside when Peter, Susan, Edmund and Lucy stumble through the back of an old wardrobe into the enchanted land of Narnia. When the White Witch learns of their presence, their lives are in danger, but there is talk that Aslan is on the move...Spring is in the air - but the White Witch tightens her grip and plans the destruction of the children and Aslan. Her triumph looks certain but the magnificent Aslan risks everything and calls on the Deeper Magic from Before the Dawn of Time.
