In the book destined to be the second film in the Narnia series, the four heroes of The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe are returned to Narnia hundreds of years in its future as the fate of the entire world again hangs in the balance and war seems inevitable. On 9 December 2005, Andrew (Shrek) Adamson's live-action film adaptation of The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe will be released by Disney, and it is already being hailed as the biggest film franchise of all time, guaranteed to appeal to adults and children across the globe. The second film is already in development. Sporting breathtaking new photographic covers, these new adult editions of the seven Chronicles of Narnia now give everyone an opportunity to experience the adventures in their original form.

Narnia has been at peace since Peter, Susan, Lucy and Edmund helped rid the kingdom of the evil White Witch. But the Sons of Adam and the Daughters of Eve have returned to their own world and a dark presence now rules this once harmonious land...
Wicked King Miraz has imposed a pernicious new order of persecution and imprisonment, but the King's nephew and rightful heir, young Prince Caspian, realizing the evil of his uncle's regime, vows to revive Narnia's glorious past. Fearing for his life, he is forced to flee and calls on the four children, the magic of the mighty lion Aslan, and an army of fauns, dwarfs and woodland spirits to help him in his seemingly impossible task.
This acclaimed BBC Radio dramatization perfectly captures C.S. Lewis' magical world as Aslan and his human friends take up the challenge to win back the freedom and happiness which is the essence of Narnia.
Narnia . . . The land between the lamp-post and the castle of Cair Paravel, where animals talk, where magical things happen ... and where the adventure begins. Peter, Susan, Edmund, and Lucy are returning to boarding school when they are summoned from the dreary train station (by Susan's magic horn) to return to the land of Narnia -- the land where they had ruled as kings and queens and where their help is desperately needed.
