Timeless tale of sheer imagination comes to life

The beloved masterpiece "The Chronicles of Narnia" by C.S. Lewis at last reaches the screen

” align=”left” hspace=”10″>The film’s stellar cast features Tilda Swinton as Jadis, the powerful White
Witch who plunges Narnia into a frozen winter of war and discord. A quartet
of rising young talents take on the roles of the Pevensie siblings who
journey through the wardrobe: newcomer Georgie Henley is Lucy, the youngest
and first to enter enchanted Narnia; Skandar Keynes is Edmund, who falls
under the seductive spell of the White Witch; teenaged Anna Popplewell is
Susan, the practical sister who remains skeptical about Narnia; and William
Moseley plays Peter, the eldest sibling, who becomes a true leader as their
adventures mount.

Co-starring in the film are Scottish actor James McAvoy as Mr. Tumnus, the
kindhearted faun who risks his own fate to ensure Lucy’s safety; and
Oscar®-winner Jim Broadbent as Prof. Kirke, whose eccentric country home
houses the magical wardrobe. To lend rich emotions to the magical
computer-generated creatures, Adamson recruited a host of acclaimed
performers as vocal talents, including Academy Award®-nominated Liam Neeson
as Narnia’s noble ruler, Aslan the Lion; Rupert Everett as The Fox, another
ally of the children; and veteran British performers Ray Winstone and
comedienne Dawn French as the kindly, bickering Mr. and Mrs. Beaver.

Opening across the Philippines, “The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, The
Witch and The Wardrobe” is distributed by Buena Vista International through
Columbia Pictures.
