It’s WWII and the Pevensie children have been sent to away from their family to Professor Kirke for safe keeping. But what are four kids supposed to do in a house without much supervision? During a game of hide and seek Lucy hides in a word-robe, but the wardrobe is not ordinary it is a portal into the world called Narnia. Here she meets a faun named Mr. Tumnus who tries to get her to fall asleep and then hand her over to the evil White Witch, but he can’t go through with it. Lucy returns and attempts to tell her story, but no one believes her. One night she travels back to Narnia this time Edmund follows her except he meets the White Witch who entices him with some Turkish Delights and tells him he can have more and be a prince if he brings his brother and sisters to her. Lucy and Edmund meet up and Lucy is so thrilled she tells the others that Edmund has been to Narnia, he denies it which causes a stir. Eventually they all end up in Narnia where their real story unfolds.
