Purchased this for my 7 year old daughter to try to encourage her to explore these films in book form. She has only watched the first one so far but absolutely spell bound. Checks her wardrobe every night before she goes to bed, just in case...

I'm sure anyone buying this has already seen the films so I won't review them again but they are great fantasy films and if you like that kind of thing, this is a must have.
I was so pleased when I pre-ordered this as I didn't think we would get a complete set with the first two films being owned by Disney and the third by 20th century fox.
I received it on release date and am now even more pleased as it's a great set.
All three films have a great collection of special features, the first two films have a whole disc of them and If you love these films as I do, you won't be disappointed.

I watched all 3 movies on blu-ray now twice (more so on dvd's :D). And they keep amazing/entertaining me. Picture quality is amazing. There's scenes in all movies that really do blu-ray justice (like the shores of their kingdom, with all the rocks, trees, shores and water. A joy to watch. The story also never bores me. Plenty of characters to bind with (or hate :D). The first movie is perhaps the best, but that doesn't make the 2nd/3rd bad movies. They are just a tiny bit behind (still amazing). Between the 2nd and third, i have a hard time choosing. The third is more fast paced, and if you are short on time perhaps the better choice for the evening. If you have plenty of time, then Caspian is a good watch. As far as I can see these disks hold all the bonus material one can have. Both the first movies are 'two disc'-versions. Disc 1 holding the movies, (and few extra's), 2nd discs contain a lot of extra's. The third movie is on one disc. But the movie is a lot shorter (33 and 43 minutes shorter then other movies), so that gives more space for extra's, wich there are a lot too.

A nice surprise is the third movie is in full screen format. 16:9 and not 21:9 (cinema ratio). In the movie I never have the feeling that they dropped some information on the side of the screen loose. So i don't know how they pulled this off. Sharpness is amazing too, wich doesn't suggest cropping/downsizing, to fit the screen. For home use, i really love 16:9, makes it even more 'cinematic' feel cause it uses full screen. So yeah a nice little surprise i say.

I reviewed this box mainly because it's underrated so far here. Especially with the recent price drop, you shouldn't hestitate. All extra's seem to be there. The paper box that holds the 3 movies with the narnian symbol shield on it, seen in the pictures), is nothing special, but feels pretty sturdy, and has nice summaries of all movies, and listings of the extra's. The 3 movies come in a standard blu-ray case, that most of the movies come into.

There seem to be some discussion if these are extended movies or not. I suspect they are extended, but don't have proof. I'll list the run times below.

Lion Witch and Wardrobe: 140 minutes
Prince Caspian: 150 minutes
Voyage of the Dawn Treader: 107 minutes.

And extra's, to many to list to be honest. Both informative, interactive, delete scenes, commentaries (director, and actors).

main feature languages:

Lion Witch and Wardrobe: English, Spanish, Portuguese, Dutch, Flemish
Prince Caspian: English, Portuguese, Belgian, Spanish, Dutch
Voyage of the Dawn Treader: English, Russian, Spanish, Portuguese, Norwegian, Ukrainian, Lithuanian

Subtitles:

Lion Witch and Wardrobe: English, Spanish, Portuguese, Dutch
Prince Caspian: English, Spanish, Portuguese, Dutch
Voyage of the Dawn Treader: English (I guess this is the main issue people have with this box? - no other subtitles on third movies)

A very good Version, but I`m not quite sure that I don`t like the old TV - Version better?
It was shown on Danish TV every Christmas for many years( 1970`ties?) and these films corresponded more closely to the books,
I think. But the Aslan in this film is very beautiful and so are the children.

Although it says that it's region free, the 2 disks of Prince Caspian are not. I'm region 1 and Prince Caspian won't play on my player.

As a child I read the books over and over. I have done the same with children of my own. While I accept the book and the imagination will usually be superior to the film, I was just a little disappointed. The production is good, the child actors were okay, improving in the third film. However the film deviated from the books, and not in a good way, particularly in the last film. In my opinion this robbed the story of a little magic. On balance a good video to have for youngsters on a rainy Sunday afternoon but read the books first.

I bought these as a gift and the recipient was very happy with them. Of course everyone knows the story - so they are more like a keep safe gift.

Read all of the books that these films were based on as a child & loved them. The films are very good too.

In my view, probably the best of the incarnations of Narnia. Films rarely do great credit to the book, but this triology makes a great attempt. Good cast, fine acting and great music really contribute.
