Fancasting British Literature: C. S. Lewis’ The Lion, The Witch And The Wardrobe

The sequel to The Magician’s Nephew and the second in a thread of posts in which I’ll be fancasting C. S. Lewis’ acclaimed The Chronicle’s of Narnia series.

Based on the second in the Narnia series by C. S. Lewis, The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe, this is the story of the four Pevensie children who go to live with an ageing yet eccentric Professor Kirke (Mark Rylance) during The Second World War.
One afternoon whilst playing hide and seek, Lucy (Dafne Keen) finds a wardrobe which leads to the magical land of Narnia.Narnia is ruled by the evil White Witch (Rebecca Ferguson) who has made it always winter and never Christmas.
Peter (Jaeden Lieberher), Susan (Sophie Lillis), Edmund (Levi Miller) and Lucy must defeat the witch in order to sit the four thrones at Cair Paravel, assisted in their endeavour by the great lion Aslan (Liam Neeson).
With the true Narnians supporting them, the four children from Finchley must defeat the conniving witch with all their might and fulfil their destinies by becoming the sovereigns of Narnia.
