The Lion, the Witch & the Wardrobe 1979
This emmy award winner for Best Animated Special is based on the first tale of C.S. Lewis' acclaimed children's books, "The Chronicles of Narnia." When four children pass through a special wardrobe closet, they discover the kingdom of Narnia, a land of talking animals and mythical creatures. But an evil witch's spell has cast Narnia into eternal winter. Fearing that an ancient prophecy has come true, and that the children are Narnia's chosen rulers, the witch tricks their youngest brother into betraying his family. Now, only Aslan, noble lion and King of the Woods, can help them defeat the witch, restore springtime to Narnia... and claim their rightful places on the throne.
