About this deal

A talking beaver and denizen of Narnia who helps three of the four siblings— Lucy, Susan, and Peter—to prepare for battle against the White Witch by sheltering them from danger and leading… This resonance is a central component of the case, promoted chiefly by Oxford University scholar Michael Ward, for the seven Chronicles having been modelled upon the seven classical astrological planets, The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe upon Jupiter. [19] Brothers and sisters, Edmund, Peter, Susan, and Lucy discover the world of Narnia by hiding in a wardrobe. However, all is not well in Narnia which has been gripped by the terror of the Witch. Can the Witch finally be defeated once and for all and at what cost?

The pretender to the throne of Narnia, the White Witch calls herself Queen of the realm but is actually an evil, ancient entity determined to thwart the prophecy which foretells that four Sons of Adam… And it was so funny, because I was very apprehensive going in, because when I was little, I think the religious themes went over my head, but I didn’t know how overbearing they would be reading this story for the first time as an adult. But it honestly wasn’t too much. I mean, some of the characters in Narnia refer to the kids as “Son of Adam” and “Daughter of Eve” and like I get the parallels with Aslan and Jesus now! But I still think it was very thoughtfully done and didn’t pull me out of the story or anything like that.

Step through the wardrobe into the kingdom of Narnia for the most mystical of adventures in a faraway land.

Lewis described the origin of The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe in an essay titled "It All Began with a Picture": [9] The Lion all began with a picture of a Faun carrying an umbrella and parcels in a snowy wood. This picture had been in my mind since I was about 16. Then one day, when I was about 40, I said to myself: 'Let's try to make a story about it.'Kudzai’s film work includes: Angel Of Bravery (Filmakademie Baden- Württemberg and Directed by Dominik Ströhle), Love Language (Irresistible Studios and Maroon Filmz, Directed and Written by Damien Nembhard). After the children enter the world of Narnia through the wardrobe, Edmund finds himself in trouble under the service of the White Witch, as she tempts him with Turkish delight. When Edmund is threatened with death, Aslan offers to sacrifice himself as an atonement for the boy's betrayal. Aslan is shaved of his fur, and stabbed on an altar of stone. This is similar to how Jesus was publicly beaten, humiliated, and crucified. After his sacrifice, Aslan is reborn, and he continues to help the children save Narnia. [52] While this sequence of events is comparable to the death of Jesus, it is not identical to it. A few differences exist, such as the fact that Aslan did not allow himself to be killed to save the entirety of Narnia, but only to save Edmund. Aslan is also only dead for one night, while Jesus returned on the third day. [51] Despite these differences, the image of Aslan and the event of his death and rebirth reflect those of the biblical account of Jesus' death and resurrection, adding to the theme of Christianity throughout the novel.
