| a must see for all ages
I was fortunate enough to attend an advanced screening and was magnificently surprised. The film was beautifully made. The acting/voices were all wonderful, including the young talent. I think all ages will be entertained. The story contains important lessons for children, but also relevant reminders for adults. I also think attempts to compare the film to Lord of the Rings and/or Harry Potter would be unfortunate for all parties. They are each uniquely wonderful. Make sure you see this!

By the way, make sure you stay through the end credits to hear a beautiful song Alanis Morisette wrote especially for the film.

Trivia

The makers asked for permission to bring in twelve reindeer to New Zealand, to pull the Ice Queen's sled. The Ministry of Agriculture and Forestry denied them, citing the potentially deadly Q Fever, from which the North American reindeer population suffers, as the reason. However, ten wolves were allowed in, for filming in Auckland.


Quotes

Mrs. Pevensie: Edmund! Get away from there! Peter!
Mrs. Pevensie: What do you think you're doing? Peter! Quickly, the shelter! Now!


Goofs

The coaches of the train on which the Pevensie children travel have Great Western Railway colors and lettering. The engine, No. 7802 Bradley Manor, is painted and lettered for British Railways, which did not form until 1948, after the war ended.


Crazy Credits

In the opening credits the Title "The Lion, the Witch, and Wardrobe" comes down as snow after we see "The Chronicles of Narnia"
