Relocated to a country house during World War II, the four Pevensie children are left at loose ends most of the day, and it's during a game of hide and seek that the youngest of them, Lucy (Georgie Henley), conceals herself inside a large wardrobe. Backing into the stacks of fur coats, she discovers that the wardrobe has no back, and in fact leads into a wintry forest where a single lamp-post stands. Here, she encounters a man-goat hybrid named Mr. Tumnus (James McAvoy), who informs her she has entered the land of Narnia, where winter has reigned for a century, under the command of the evil White Witch (Tilda Swinton). But a prophecy has said that one day, four humans will bring an end to the tyranny with the aid of Aslan, a giant mystical lion (voiced by Liam Neeson) who's kind of a fantasy version of Jesus. If you're a fan of C.S. Lewis' Narnia books, all you need to know is this: Disney has done right by him.
