Today’s film is based on a musical that I had never heard of before much less heard of the songs before. But apparently, it’s a pretty big deal. Although it didn’t have the fame of musicals such as Les Misérables or The Phantom of the Opera, fans considered it of the same caliber.

I didn’t really know what to expect while watching this other than the fact that there were going to be about a bunch of fairy tale characters in one setting.

I had some familiarity with that already.

So was this film a good way to get me acquainted with the musical? Well, let’s take a look.

I remember that when this movie came out, it was a pretty big thing. One day, my class was going on a field trip and we chartered a bus that played this movie to keep us occupied. I remember myself not really watching it, so I consider this the first time I’m seeing the film.

So, what was I expecting? Well, I remember seeing scenes with Cuba Gooding, Jr. and some white guy trying to be funny. Other than that, I really didn’t know what else to expect. Before watching the film this time, I realized that it’s directed by Brian Levant, so that automatically got me weary.

Critics don't seem to favor Brian Levant much.

Today’s film is a film that I think has become somewhat forgotten nowadays. I think mainly it has to do with the fact that we haven’t seen a movie based on this franchise in 5 years due to problematic rights issues.

But, when it came out, this movie was a pretty big deal. Everybody was excited about it and it was the 3rd highest-grossing film worldwide for 2005. But, is it any good? Well, let’s take a look at The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe.
