The Chronicles of Narnia is a series of seven fantasy novels for children written by Christian author, C.S. Lewis, and is considered a classic of children's literature. Having sold over 100 million copies in 41 languages, it has been adapted several times, complete or in-part, for radio, television, stage, and cinema. The most recent film adaption of The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe, based on the 2nd book of the series, was the third most popular film in the U.S. in 2005.
The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe tells the story of 4 children who, while playing hide and seek, find a wardrobe which leads to the enchanted land of Narnia. Through their journey, they learn that Narnia is trapped in winter and ruled by the evil White Witch whom they must defeat. Defeating evil will fulfil an ancient prophecy, and in turn, return Aslan (the Christ-figure) as the rightful leader of the throne. A classic story of good vs. evil, it affirms the Christian Gospel and the positive values of the Christian ethic, redemption through love.
