Review about the box set Ultra Deluxe version not the movie,
This review is from: The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe - DVD Ultimate Box Set [Limited Edition - Amazon.co.uk Worldwide Exclusive] (DVD)
This review is about the box set (ultra deluxe) and not about the movie (which is great).
For anyone who likes luxurious DVD-box-sets you can be sure of this fact: This one is a "must-have"! not only for the fans from the movie but also for all whom loved the story about Narnia from C.S. Lewis. It looks lake the wardrobe from the movie inclusive two copper knobs which opens the box. Inside the box you'll find the DVD "The Chronicles of Narnia, The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe S.E" along with a small blue rectangular shaped box which holds the key-ring. Behind (or below to be specific) there is thick book fully illustrated with all the behind the scenes and lots more.
This is the Special Edition version of the movie. One movie disc with extra feature: commentary. The second disc is the bonus disc with lots and lots of extra's. Faintly reminds me at the Extended Edition from "The Lords Of the Rings". The sound is for English is a 5.1 Dolby Surround from high quality.
A must-have especially created for Amazon.co.uk. This high-quality item gives you a touch of magic. Made from glass and stainless steel holds a light which can be turned on simply by pressing a side-switch that has a form of a small knob. The light shines pure white which is visible in broad daylight too.
The movie companion book:
A massive thick book beautifully illustrated with photo's from the cast, crew, surroundings, creatures and concept art. Text: Story of how it turned from book to scrypt to making the movie The Chronicles of Narnia, The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe. Interviews taken from the cast, director and producer. This book is how a movie companion book has to be, giving a lot of information about the movie without hardly any spoilers.
This set gives you real value for money especially when you realize there are limited to 2000 copy's. Even for the none-fans who likes fantasy movies this set is realy worth giving attention to!
About the reviewer:
A Belgium Narnia fan brought up with four languages, Flemish (sort of Dutch), English, French and German. I did read the Chronicles of Narnia (Dutch translation: "De Kronieken van Narnia: de Leeuw, de Heks en de Kleerkast.") a long time ago when I was twelve years old at a library of my school and in a way never letting it go from my mind. A few years later I bought the original English version, bought from Amazon.co.uk which was for me a kind of a revelation. Although it was a few years ago when I read the story for the first time, I felt that the original translation had more to offer which was and still is not a surprise to me at all.
