Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe, The .
|After many years had passed, Lucy, Edmund, Susan and Peter were riding their horses in pursuit of the white stag. What familiar landmark did they happen across, that marked the entrance to the back of the wardrobe?||"The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe" (2005)
the lamppost. It was under this very lamppost that Lucy first met Tumnus. Seeing it again sparked a memory of Spare Oom, which was how Tumnus interpreted her trying to name the room where the wardrobe had been located. They set off to explore, and found themselves returning through the back of the wardrobe into the mansion.
Tumnus. While Aslan introduced the new queens and kings of Narnia as; Lucy the Valiant, Susan the Gentle, Edmund the Just and Peter the Magnificent, Tumnus placed a small crown on each of their heads. This was done at the palace of Cair Paravel, where the new kings and queens sat upon the four thrones, fulfilling the prophecy.
He breathed warmth into them.. After coming back to life on the stone table, Aslan took Susan and Lucy to the Queen's castle, where he breathed life into everyone the Queen had petrified with her wand, including Tumnus. These creatures then headed back to the battle near the stone table where they provided reinforcements for the outnumbered army, being led by Peter.
|When they were at the Beavers' home, Edmund left to find the Queen, expecting to be treated like a prince. He was not given the welcome he expected, but was chained and thrown in her dungeon instead. Who was in the cell next to him?||"The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe" (2005)
Tumnus the faun. Edmund was dismayed when he realized who his cell mate was, after sharing some of his dinner with him. When the Queen came down, she made sure that Tumnus knew that he had been arrested because Edmund had betrayed him, when he'd told her that Tumnus had helped Lucy. Edmund obviously felt guilty about this, even though he hadn't realized what he was doing when he told the Queen that.
|After finding that Tumnus' house had been destroyed, they were befriended by Mr. Beaver and taken to his home. While eating dinner there, they were beset upon by wolves, and escaped through a secret tunnel. They started making their way to the stone table where rumour had Aslan amassing an army. When the Queen learned of this, she set off in fast pursuit. What kind of animals pulled her sleigh, and how many were there?||"The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe" (2005)
six white reindeer. When Edmund first met the Queen, only four white reindeer pulled her sleigh. It was during this scene that she fed him hot chocolate and Turkish Delight and coaxed him to bring his brother and sisters back. When she set off for the stone table, there were six white reindeer pulling her sleigh, presumably because more speed was needed. Edmund was also present in the sled, but he was bound and treated like a prisoner, and not plied with treats.
|Initially no one believed Lucy's story about Narnia, and even after Edmund had also visited there, he pretended to disbelieve. One afternoon all four children hid in the wardrobe, finally finding the entrance to Narnia at the back. Why did they go into the wardrobe to hide?||"The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe" (2005)
They were hiding from the housekeeper.. The four children were playing cricket on the lawn of the mansion, when Edmund hit a ball through one of the old windows. They went inside to see the damage, and heard the housekeeper coming to investigate. Since they were afraid of her temper, they chose to run away from her. She followed them, forcing them to either face her, or enter the wardrobe. This time the wardrobe yielded the entranceway to Narnia, even though it had been closed off the last time that Susan and Peter had checked.
|Tumnus had intended to kidnap Lucy and turn her in to the White Witch, as he was supposed to do with any human. He was obviously feeling very guilty about this when he told Lucy of what he planned to do. What did Lucy say that helped him change his mind and let her go?||"The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe" (2005)
'I thought you were my friend!'. Although Tumnus initially intended to follow the Queen's edict, he obviously did not feel good about what he was supposed to do. Lucy's simple appeal to his good nature had a big influence in giving him the courage to defy the Queen.
|During a game of hide and seek, Lucy was the first to find her way into Narnia through the back of the wardrobe. She met up with the Faun Tumnus, who offered her a cup of tea, and possibly some sardines at his house. Once there, how did Tumnus lull Lucy to sleep?||"The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe" (2005)
by playing a lullaby on his pipes. While Lucy was drinking her tea, Tumnus played a Narnian lullaby on his wonderful pipes. While listening and watching magical figures dance among the flames, Lucy's eyes got heavier and heavier, and soon she was asleep.
They were evacuated because of the bombing.. The opening scenes of the movie show how horrible life was for everyone during the Battle of Britain, in the Second World War. Many children were evacuated to country homes, where they would be at less risk from falling bombs. Families being asked to provide shelter for these children seldom had any choice in the matter.
the Queen's palace. After being sacrificed on the stone table, Aslan was brought back to life by the ancient magic. Taking Susan and Lucy with him upon his back, he ran to the Queen's castle. There he breathed life into all of the creature she had petrified. These creatures then accompanied him back to the battle, where their numbers helped change the outcome of the battle. The fact that Aslan disposed of the Queen was also an important, contributing factor.
a phoenix. Lit by a burning arrow, the phoenix laid down a wall of fire between the two armies, temporarily stopping the advance of the Queen's army. Peter took this opportunity to order his troops, who were not doing so well against the Queen's larger numbers, to fall back.
A phoenix is a mythical bird that can burn and then rise again from the ashes. 'Harry Potter' fans may recognize this as being the type of bird that is Dumbledore's loyal friend.
Susan. After the Queen stabbed Edmund with her broken staff, the dwarf, who was pretty much her constant companion throughout the movie, moved in to finish Edmund off. Susan, arriving in the nick of time, used the bow and arrow given to her by Father Christmas, to kill the dwarf before he could kill her brother.
Edmund. The Queen used her magical staff to turn creatures into stone. Edmund slashed this staff with his sword, to stop her from using it on Peter. The Queen used the shattered end of her staff to stab Edmund, delivering a nasty wound, but not pertrifying him. Edmund was later cured with Lucy's healing potion (that she got from Father Christmas).
a minotaur. The large black minotaur (according to legend, a minotaur is part bull and part human) obviously had a leadership role in the Queen's army. The Queen was heard speaking to him and calling him General.
Aslan's mane. When the Queen demanded Edmund's life, as allowed to her by the ancient magic of Narnia, Aslan offered himself up in sacrifice in exchange. When he went to the stone table to be sacrificed, the Queen had him bound and had his mane shaved to humiliate him, before killing him. She wore this into battle, as a symbol of her triumph over him. She was shocked when he returned to life (mane intact) due to the selflessness of his sacrifice and his purity of soul.
polar bears. The white witch's predilection for eternal winter was obvious in her choice of creatures to pull her various carriages. She used white reindeer to pull her sleigh, and white polar bears to pull her chariot into battle. It was interesting to note which animals fought on which side of the battle. For example, cheetahs fought with Aslan's army, while tigers fought on the side of the queen. A rhinoceros, stereo-typically depicted as being bad tempered and evil, fought on the side of our friends.
silver with a red lion. The lion obviously represented Aslan. However, the 'lion rampant' (standing on its high legs), has historically been a British emblem. It is currently the symbol that is on one of the two Scottish flags (the other being the Cross of St. Andrew). It was incorporated into the British Coat of Arms when Scotland and England first shared a king, James the First, in 1603.
Edmund's shield was red and gold with a lion's head, which is difficult to see in the movie.
a white unicorn. Because Aslan had offered himself in sacrifice, in exchange for Edmund's life, he was not there when the battle began. Due to the prophecy, the centaur assumed that Peter would naturally take Aslan's role at the head of the army, and Peter reluctantly agreed. While watching the witch approach, Peter was mounted on a beautiful white unicorn. The unicorn obviously carried him willingly, as no bridle or saddle was necessary as Peter rode into battle.
A horse named Philip. Edmund rode a horse named Philip before and after the war; they basically ended up growing together. Peter was the one who rode a white unicorn who, unfortunately, died in the battle with the White Witch and when they were older, he rode a black horse (whose name was never mentioned). No one rode a centaur.
In the Narnia books, there were two types of horses in Narnia - those that could speak and those that could not. Those that could speak had the freedom of choice to be ridden or not (usually ridden during wars, otherwise hardly anyone rode them) and it was considered a great honor to be allowed to ride a horse that could speak since they were considered more intelligent than their silent counterparts.
Just an interesting aside, the girl who played the older Lucy was actually Georgie Henley's older sister, Rachel Henley. (Info from imdb.com)
|All the Pevensie kids looked alike, but one of them had an obviously different feature from the others. What was different with him/her?||Into The Wardrobe
Edmund has brown eyes.. They all have dark blue or blue eyes, except for Edmund who has brown eyes. All of them have fair skin color.
I liked Peter's character, he was such a nice older brother, he always protected his siblings and placed their safety and well-being first, before anything else.
|Edmund was saved from the White Witch and had a private conversation with Aslan. What were the first words Peter said to Edmund, when they were all finally reunited?||Into The Wardrobe
"Get some sleep.". The scene:
(Lucy and Susan hugged him.)
Susan: "Are you all right?"
Edmund: "I'm a little tired."
Peter: "Get some sleep."
(Edmund had a slightly disappointed and hurt look on his face but walked toward the tent. When he was a few steps past Peter, Peter turned to him.)
Peter: "And Edmund? (they looked at each other; Peter smiled) Try not to wander off."
Edmund smiled back, signifying, without words, that everything was all right with them again.
Lucy's the one who said, "Narnia's not going to run out of toast, Ed" when the four were eating and Edmund was wolfing down toast.
"Why can't you ever just do as you're told" or its variation, is a line that was said twice by Peter to Edmund. The first time was in the beginning after Edmund defied his mother's orders and ran back to the house to get the picture of their father. Peter yelled at him because Edmund almost got them both killed. The second was after Edmund was revived by Lucy's potion, after being stabbed by the Witch because he disobeyed Peter's orders to leave. Peter said it in a sort of tearful manner because Edmund had almost died trying to save his life, even though Peter had asked him to leave so that Edmund would not be harmed.
|In the war with the White Witch, what was Peter's first line of attack?||Into The Wardrobe
Gryphons dropping stones. I loved that shot, when the camera showed the Gryphons from the air dropping heavy stones to the enemy. It closely resembled the opening shot of the German planes bombing London. I think it was a great move on Peter's part, although I do wonder what happened to the Gryphons afterwards. We don't really see them in the thick of the battle. In fact, we only see a few of them (2, actually) when the battle has relocated to the rocky area at the side of the open field.
|What was the last thing that Lucy said that convinced Mr. Tumnus to return her back to the lamppost?||Into The Wardrobe
"I thought you were my friend.". When Mr. Tumnus was apologizing for kidnapping her, Lucy said in disbelief, "I thought you were my friend." In the next scene, Mr. Tumnus was accompanying Lucy back to the lamppost where he first met her. Although she did say, "You're the nicest Faun I've ever met," it wasn't that which prodded Mr. Tumnus into returning her.
Helen. Lucy mentioned her mother's name when Mr. Tumnus asked her, "Are you a Daughter of Eve?" and she replied, "Well, my mother's name is Helen." Mrs. Pevensie was played by Judy McIntosh. Jadis was the White Witch's real name and it was mentioned only once in the movie, when Peter read Mr. Tumnus' warrant of arrest. In Narnia, female humans were called Daughters of Eve while male humans were called Sons of Adam, so I hope you didn't get confused there.
Coombe Halt. The story was set during World War II, when the Germans were bombing London. It was during this time that they allowed children refugees to travel to the countryside to escape war-ravaged London. The Pevensie kids took the train and, seemingly, were the last to get off, which indicated that they traveled the farthest. They were sent to live with Professor Kirke and Mrs. Macready.
A book. C.S. Lewis wrote the "Narnia" books, seven in all, and of them, "The Lion, The Witch, and the Wardrobe" is the most popular and well-known.
Yes. Mr. Fox appeared for a few seconds, when everyone was cheering for Peter, Susan, Edmund, and Lucy. Mr. Fox was standing next to a statue of a lion. He seemed to be happy to have the children become kings and queens of Narnia. Mr. Fox was always respectful to the children throughout the movie. When he first met them, he addressed Peter as "King Peter", Susan as "my Queen", and Edmund as "your majesty". Thank you for playing my quiz.
She turned him to stone.. Many other animals were also turned to stone by the White Witch. When Mr. Fox first appeared in the movie, the children and beavers were looking at a lot of the animals that had been turned to stone. Mr. Fox told them, "This is what happens to the enemies of the White Witch." Fortunately for Mr. Fox and the other animals who had been turned to stone, Aslan was able to revive them by breathing warmth into them.
Edmund. The White Witch demanded to know where Aslan was. Mr. Fox did not tell her, and the White Witch started to hit him with her wand. Edmund quickly shouted, "Wait! The beavers said something about the Stone Table and an army." The White Witch replied, "Thank you, Edmund. It is good for this creature to see some honesty before he dies." "No!", shouted Edmund, as she turned him to stone. Then the White Witch slapped Edmund and told him to think about whose side he was on.
He told them to go north to protect the children, who were hiding in a tree near him.. Maugrim demanded that the fox tell him where the humans were, but Mr. Fox would not tell him at first. The wolves then attacked, and injured, Mr. Fox. Mr. Fox looked around, and acted like he had no choice, but to tell them where they were. Mr. Fox said, "They were heading north.". Then he fell to the ground. Then the children and beavers came down from the tree, and Mrs. Beaver treated his wounds. Mr. Fox told them, "I wish I could say their bark was worse than their bite."
They said that they would spare his life.. As the wolves approached him, Mr. Fox said, "Greetings, gents. Lost something have we?". Maugrim, the leader of the wolves, said, "Don't patronize me! I know where your allegiance lies. We're looking for some humans.". Mr. Fox replied, "Humans? Here in Narnia? That's a valuable bit of information, don't you think?". Maugrim told him, "Your reward is your life. It's not much, but still...".
