To escape the horrors of the Blitz, the Pevensie children are packed off to live with eccentric Professor Kirke (Broadbent). While playing in his mansion, they discover a wardrobe that provides a portal to the magical world of Narnia. Cue wicked witches, Turkish Delight, talking wolves and a huge smackdown to decide the fate of a kingdom.
It’s a more dynamic adventure than Potter IV but lacks the majesty and richness of LOTR. Still, it’s an enjoyable adaptation and good enough for us to welcome this new franchise.
