A mission of mercy sends two children to a magical world in another dimension in this made-for-TV fantasy adventure for the family. Eustace (David Thwaites) and Jill (Camilla Power) are two misfit schoolchildren who discover that a garden shed on the school's grounds is actually a gateway to the magical land of Narnia. Eustance had visited Narnia years before, and is troubled to discover King Caspian (Geoffrey Russell) has aged considerably. Caspian is troubled by the disappearance of his son, Prince Rilian (Richard Henders), who had been kidnapped years earlier. With the help of the King's helper Puddlegum (Tom Baker) and the enchanted lion Aslan (voice of Alisa Berk), Eustace and Jill set out to find the lost prince and reunite him with his father. Produced by the BBC (where it originally aired as a mini-series), The Silver Chair was based on The Chronicles Of Narnia stories by C.S. Lewis.

By far the best of the video productions for the Chronicles of Narnia series, the Silver Chair is everything you would expect from this classic tale. Tom Baker fans will enjoy seeing Dr. Who play a very different part. The direction is good, the casting is good and special effects (especially in the giant land) was very well thought out. An A++ in the DVD format!
A wonderful presentation of the C.S.Lewis series . It was as if the books came to life. I urge the support for the rest of the series to be produced.
If you are fans of C.S. Lewis Chronicles of Narnia, then this movie is a must see. The director did an excellent job of following the story, and much of the film appeared as I had imagined after reading the books. I only wish Wonderworks would make films out of the rest of the Narnia series, and that it would be released on DVD.
