True to the book - The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe review by Karrie

Spoiler Alert
07/01/2010

The CS Lewis story is well known, one of a collection of children's fantasy fairy tales with adult moral messages - but I'm not getting into that here!

This is the version I watched as a young adult - shown on a Sunday afternoon on the Beeb. Not as sexy as the Hollywood version, but slower paced and honest.

It is an honest reproduction of the book shown with puppetry, costume and overlaid animation, not full blown CGI, which is less frightening for young kids (5 yrs) who are already worried about the dark mysterious wardrobe, talking animals, soldiers and the wicked witch on the other side. We loved it!
