In the vast countryside mansion of Professor Kirke, they stumble upon a magical wardrobe that serves as a portal to the land of Narnia, a realm ensnared by the White Witch’s icy curse of eternal winter. Guided by the noble lion Aslan, the children embark on a quest to liberate Narnia from the Witch’s tyrannical grip, discovering bravery, sacrifice, and the power of unity along the way.
