Lucy and Tumnus: AAAUUUGGGGHHHHH!!!
Tumnus (slowly walking out as Lucy picks up packages): Uh, CH… gk, ch
Lucy: Were you hiding from me?
Tumnus: Huh, um, n..n.. no, I..I… I didn’t want to scare you,
Lucy: if you don’t mind my asking…what are you?
Tumnus: Why, I’m a faun! And you must be some beardless dwarf?
Lucy: I’m not a dwarf, I’m a girl! And actually I’m tallest in my
Tumnus: But you’re saying, you’re a daughter of Eve?
Lucy: Well, my mum’s name is Helen…
Tumnus: Yes, but you are, in fact, human.
Lucy: Of course.
Tumnus: What are you doing here?
Lucy: Well, I came in through the wardrobe in the spare room, and-
Tumnus: Spare Oom, is that in Narnia?
Lucy: Narnia? What’s that?
Tumnus: My dear girl, you’re in it! Everything from the lamp post, all
the way to castle Cair Paravel on the Eastern Sea, every stick and
stone, every icicle, is Narnia,
Lucy: This is an awfully big wardrobe
Tumnus: I’m sorry, please allow me to introduce myself, my name is
Lucy: Glad to meet you, Mr. Tumnus! *extends hand* I’m Lucy Pevensie.
Oh, you shake it!
Lucy: I-I don’t know! People do it when they meet each other.
Tumnus: Lucy Pevensie, from the shining city of War Drobe in the far
land of Spare Oom, how would it be if you came and had tea with me?
Lucy: Oh! Well, thank you very much! But I probably should be getting
Tumnus: Oh, come on! It’s not every day I get to make a new friend! And
there’s a… roaring fire! And toast and cakes! And maybe… we’ll even
break into the sardines.
Lucy: Well, maybe for just a little while… if you have… sardines.
Tumnus: By the bucket load,
Tumnus: Come Along.
Scene: In Tumnus’ house:
Lucy: Can I help you with that?
Tumnus: Why thank you!
(Lucy looks at picture)
Tumnus: Oh… That is my father.
Lucy: He had a nice face. You look just like him.
Tumnus: No, were not alike at all really.
Lucy: My father is fighting in the war.
Tumnus: My father went away to war too… but that was a very long time
ago… before this dreadful winter.
Lucy: Winter isn’t all bad. There’s ice skating and snow ball fights.
Oh! And Christmas!
Tumnus: We haven’t had Christmas in a hundred years here.
Lucy: (shocked) No presents for a hundred years?
Tumnus: But, oh, you would have loved Narnia in spring! The Dryads and
the Fauns would dance all night… but we never got tired. And oh, the
music! Such music. Would you… like to hear some now?
Lucy: yes please
Tumnus: (gets flute out) Now, are you familiar with the Narnia
Lucy: (shakes her head): No, I’m afraid I’m not
Tumnus: Good, because this probably won’t sound anything like one.
Lucy: Oh I must go
Tumnus: It’s too late for that now I’m such a bad faun
Lucy: No. You’re the nicest faun I’ve ever met.
Tumnus: Then I’m afraid you’ve had a very poor sampling.
Lucy: I’m sure you’re very sorry, and you’ll never do it again.
Tumnus: It’s not something I have done, Lucy Pevensie. It’s something
Lucy: What are you doing?
Tumnus: I’m kidnapping you. It’s the White Witch, the one that makes it
always winter, and never Christmas. She told me that I If I ever was to
come across a son of Adam or a daughter of Eve, I am supposed to turn
it over to her!
Lucy: But I thought you were my friend
Scene: Tumnus and Lucy outside/return to England
Tumnus: We must move quietly the woods are full of her spies, even some
of the trees are on her side
Lucy: I think so. (Tumnus starts to return her handkerchief, but she
gives it back) Keep it, you need it more than I do.
(Tumnus laughs, and touches Lucy’s nose…)
Mr. Tumnus: Go… Come on, go!
(Lucy runs off, and Mr. Tumnus returns to his home)
(Lucy heads for the wardrobe)
Scene: Back in England
Peter (background): 98, 99, 100… Ready or not here I come.
Lucy: I’m back, I’m back, it’s alright,
Edmund: Shhh, he’s coming.
Peter: You know, I’m not sure if you two have quite gotten the idea of
Lucy: but weren’t you wondering where I was?
Edmund: That’s the point! That’s why he was seeking you!
Susan: Does this mean I win?
Peter: I don’t think Lucy wants to play anymore.
(Susan looks in the wardrobe..)
Susan: The only wood in here is the back of the wardrobe.
Peter: One game at a time Lu, we don’t all have your imagination.
Lucy: But I wasn’t imagining!
Susan: that’s enough
Edmund: Well I believe you.
Lucy: You do?
Edmund: Yah, didn’t I tell you about the football field I found in the
Peter: Why don’t you just stop it, you always have to make everything
worse. Grow up!
Edmund (gets angry): Shut up! You think you’re dad, but you’re not!
Susan: well, that was nicely handled! (walks away too..)
Lucy: It was really there
Peter: Susan’s right. That’s enough..
Scene: that evening/Edmund enters Narnia and meets WW
(Lucy closes the wardrobe and she dissolves to night)
(Pan down on candle burning out, Lucy gets out boots and not slippers
and takes candle.)
(Flushing toilet as Edmund comes out and sees Lucy)
(Follows her to wardrobe Candle blows out when she opens it and walks
in as Edmund does)
Edmund: Lucy, Lucy. I hope you’re not afraid of the dark (shuts door)
(Edmund is soon in Narnia, he walks around… and is amazed by it all)
Edmund: Lucy? Lucy! I think I believe you now!
Dwarf: Yah! (whipping sound)
(Edmund dives out of the way into the snow and then the dwarf jumps out
and throws a whip around Edmunds legs)
(Dwarf puts knife to Edmund’s throat)
White Witch: What is it Ginarrbrik?
Edmund: He won’t let go!
Dwarf: Is that how you address the Queen of Narnia?
Edmund: I didn’t know?
Dwarf: Well, you shall know her better afterwards.
White Witch: Wait! What is your name Son-of-Adam?
Edmund: Edmund, your majesty.
White Witch: And how was it, Edmund, that you came to enter my
Edmund: I walked through a wardrobe following my sister.
White Witch: Your sister? How many are you?
White Witch: Edmund you look so cold! Come and sit with me here on my
sledge. (Edmund joins her) Now, would like something warm to drink.
Edmund: Yes…your majesty.(Take vial and drops a green drop on snow
that become a hot drink that the dwarf gives Edmund) How did you do
White Witch: I can make anything you like.
Edmund: Could you make me taller?
White Witch: I can make anything you like to eat
Edmund: Turkish Delight
(Drop once again comes down and makes the box of Turkish Delight and
the Dwarf gives it to Edmund)
White Witch: I’d love to see your family
Edmund: They’re nothing special
White Witch: I have no children of my own and you are such a good
little boy (I never could hear those words right) where I could see,
one day, you becoming prince of Narnia – maybe even king.
Edmund: (mouth full) Really?
White Witch: (nods) Of course you’d have to bring your family.
Edmund: They’re nothing special
Edmund: Oh, Peter will be king too?
White Witch: No! But a king needs servants.
Edmund: I-I guess I could bring ‘em.
White Witch: Beyond these woods, do you see those two little hills? My
house is right between them. You’d love it there Edmund, it has whole
rooms simply stuffed with Turkish Delight!
Edmund: Couldn’t I have some more now?
White Witch: NO! (smiles) Don’t want to ruin you appetite.
White Witch: I’m going to miss you Edmund. But we are going to see each
Edmund: I hope so.
White Witch: Until then…dear one. (WW drives of and Ed is left alone)
Lucy: Edmund? Oh Edmund!!!! (hugs her brother) I saw Mr. Tumnus again
and he’s fine!!! The White Witch hasn’t found out about him helping me!
Edmund: The White Witch?
Lucy: She calls herself the Queen of Narnia, but she really isn’t.
Edmund? Are you okay? You look awful.
Edmund: Well what do you expect! It’s freezing! How do we get out of
Lucy: Come on…this way.
Scene: back in England
Lucy: (turns on the light and jumps on Peter) Peter, Peter wake up!
It’s there, it’s really there!
Peter: (rolls over still half asleep) Lucy, what are talking about?
Lucy: Narnia! It’s all in the wardrobe, like I told you!
(Susan comes in)
Susan: Oh Lucy, you’ve been dreaming.
Lucy: No I wasn’t, I saw Mr. Tumnus again! Oh, and this time – Edmund
Peter: You saw the faun?
Lucy: Well, he didn’t actually go there with me. What were you doing
Edmund: I-I was just playing along. You know what little children are
like these days, they just don’t know when to stop pretending (sits on
his bed looking smugly at Lucy)
(Lucy starts to cry and runs out of the room. Susan runs after her and
so does Peter – who shoves Edmund over)
(Lucy runs down the hall and smack into the Professor, she looks up a
little frightened and then starts her crying all over again, hugging
Mrs. Macready: You children are one shenanigan shy of sleeping’ in the
stable- oh, Professor! I told them you were not to be disturbed.
Professor: Oh, it’s alright Mrs. Macready – I’m sure there’s a logical
explanation. But I think this one needs some hot chocolate.
Mrs. Macready: Yes Professor. Come on, dear.
(Mrs. Macready takes Lucy down the hall. Peter and Susan turn to go)
Professor: *Ahem* (the two turn and follow him into his office and the
Professor sits at his desk and takes some tobacco out of it’s silver
apple case and puts it in his pipe)
Professor: You seem to have upset the internal balance of my
Peter: We are very sorry sir, it won’t happen again.
Susan: It’s our sister sir, Lucy.
Prof: The weeping girl?
Susan: Yes sir, she’s upset.
Professor: Hence the weeping
Peter: We can handle it! (takes Susan’s sleeve)
Professor: Oh, I can see that.
Susan: She thinks she’s found a magical land in the upstairs wardrobe.
Professor: What did you say!?
Peter: The wardrobe upstairs, Lucy thinks she’s found a forest inside.
(Susan and Peter sit on a couch and the Professor sits in a chair
across from them)
Professor: What was it like?
Susan: Like talking to a lunatic!
Professor: No, not her – the forest!
Peter: You’re-you’re not saying you believe her?
Professor: No, not her – the forest!
Peter: You….you actually believe her?
Professor: Well don’t you?
Susan: Well, logically it couldn’t possibly be there!
Professor: What do they teach at these schools?
Peter: Edmund said they were only pretending
Professor: And he’s the more truthful one is he?
Peter: No, this would be the first time.
Professor: Well then, id your sister isn’t lying and isn’t mad then
logically we must assume that she is telling the truth. She’s your
sister, isn’t she? You’re a family! It’s high time you start acting
Peter: Peter winds up, goes for the bowl!
(ball hits Edmund in the leg)
Edmund (rubs his leg): Ow!
Peter: Whoops! Wake up, Dolly Daydream!
Edmund: Can’t we play hide and go seek again?
Peter: I thought you said that it was a kid’s game.
Susan: Besides, we can all use the fresh air.
Edmund: Not like there’s air inside
Peter: Are you ready then?
Edmund: Are you? (smacks his bat on the ground and gets ready to hit
(Peter pitches the ball, hard, and Edmund whacks it good and it smashes
through an upstairs window and crashes into a suit of armor)
(The children are looking at the broken window and the suit of armor on
Peter: Well done, Ed!
Edmund: You bowled it!
Susan: Listen, Mrs. Macready is coming
Edmund: (runs to the wardrobe and opens the door) Come on!
Susan: You have got to be joking.
Susan: Get back!
(sounds of kids griping)
(Susan and Peter fall backwards.)
Scene: In Narnia!
Lucy: Don’t worry, it’s probably just your imagination
Peter: I don’t suppose saying we’re sorry would quite cover it?
Lucy: No, it wouldn’t. But this might!
(Lucy nails Peter in the face with a snowball, he throws one back at
her and a snowball fight
begins. Susan hits Ed in the arm with one)
Edmund: Ow! (rubs his arm) Stop it! (They all realize that Ed lied)
Peter: You little liar!
Edmund: You didn’t believe her either!
Peter: Apologize to Lucy. (He just looks at her)
Peter: Say you’re sorry! (Peter steps up to him)
Edmund: Alright! I’m sorry.
Lucy: That’s alright, some little children just don’t know when to stop
pretending. (looks at him smugly)
Edmund: (mutters): Very funny.
Susan: Maybe we should go back
Edmund: Can’t we at lease take a look around?
Peter: I think Lucy must decide!
Lucy: I all want you to meet Mr. Tumnus!
Peter: Well Mr. Tumnus it is (walks into the wardrobe again)
Susan: We can’t just walk around in these clothes!
Peter: (comes out) We can use these coats.
Susan: Peter, they don’t belong to us.
Peter: Well I don’t think the professor will mind. And if you think
about it logically we are not even taking them out of the wardrobe.
(Hands coat to Edmund)
Edmund: But that’s a girl’s coat!
Peter: I know.
Scene: discovering Narnia
(Start walking toward Mr. Tumnus’ cave through snow)
End of line of Lucy: …and tea and… (Sees open door and runs off)
(They all run to Tumnus’ house)
Lucy: Who would do something like this?
(Edmund steps on broken picture of Tumnus’s dad)
Susan: Peter what is that on the wall?
Peter reads: The Former occupant of these premises, the Faun Tumnus, is
under arrest and awaiting his trial on a charge of High Treason against
her imperial Majesty Jadis, Queen of Narnia, Chatelaine of Cair
Paravel, Empress of the Lone Islands, also to comforting her said
Majesty’s enemies, harbouring spies and fraternizing with Humans.
signed Maugrim, captain of the Secret Police, Long live the Queen.
Susan: Now we should really go.
Lucy: But we have to help him!
Peter: It’s out of our hands now Lu.
Lucy: You don’t get it do you? I’m the human!!! He helped ME!
Peter: Maybe we should call the police
Susan: These are the police!
Edmund: Besides, he’s a criminal!
Peter (to Lucy): Don’t worry Lucy, we’ll think of something
Susan: Did that bird just ‘psst’ us?
Scene: outside again
(They step outside, they hear rustles from the bushes. Mr. Beaver
Lucy: It’s a beaver.
(Peter approaches the beaver, clicking his tongue)
Peter: Here, boy *clicks* come here…*clicks*
(Peter let’s out his hand, Mr. Beaver stares at it then sits upright)
Mr.Beaver: Well, I ain’t gonna smell it if that’s what you want!
Edmund: It’s a talking beaver!
Mr.Beaver: Lucy Pevensie?
(Mr. Beaver hands her the handkerchief)
Lucy: This is the handkerchief I gave to Mr-
Mr. Beaver: Tumnus. He gave it to me just before they took him.
Lucy: Is he alright?
Mr. Beaver: Further in.(Mr. Beaver scurries off, Susan grabs Peter by
Susan: Peter, we don’t know what you are doing.
Edmund: She’s right. How do we know we can trust this beaver?
Peter: He say’s he knows the faun.
Susan: He’s a beaver…he shouldn’t be saying anything!
Mr. Beaver: Is everything alright?
Peter: Yes. We were just talking
Mr. Beaver: That’s better left for safer corners.
Lucy: He means the trees.
(Walk to Beaver’s dam through the cliffs under a bridge and then they
see the Dam)
Mr. Beaver: There is home sweet home.
Lucy: Oh, what a beautiful dam Mr. Beaver.
Mr. Beaver: Merely a trifle.
Mrs. Beaver: Is that you Beaver? I find out you’ve been out with Badger
again I’ll…Oh, they’re not Badgers. I never thought I would see this
(to Mr. Beaver) You couldn’t give me ten minutes warning…look at this
Mr. Beaver: I would have given you a week if I thought it would help
Mrs. Beaver: Well you must be cold and hungry. Let’s get you inside for
some food and civilized conversation.
(Lucy, Susan & Peter follow Mrs. Beaver inside, Edmund see’s Jadis’s
castle…right where it’s suppose to be)
Mr. Beaver: Enjoying the scenery, are we?
(Edmund shakes off that comment, & enters the dam. Mr. Beaver follows
Scene: in the beavers house
Mrs. Beaver (to Lucy): Fish and sticks, dear.
Peter: is there nothing we can do about Mr. Tumnus?
Mrs. Beaver: well.. there’s hope!
Mr. Beaver: Yeah, there’s a load full of hope… Aslan is on the move.
Edmund: Who’s Aslan?
(Mr. Beaver laughs.. Mrs. Beaver sees they are serious and lays her
hand on Mr. Beaver)
Mr. Beaver: Aslan….you silly little blighter…..you don’t know do
Peter: Well we haven’t actually been here very long
Mr. Beaver: He’s only the king the whole wood, the true king of
Narnia…. and he’s waiting for you!
Lucy: waiting for us?
Beaver: You got to be joking! Look, Aslan’s return, Tumnus’
arrest…..the secret police! They’re all happening because of you!
Susan: You’re blaming us?
Mrs. Beaver: Not blaming you dear, thanking you.
Beaver: There’s….a prophecy, When Adam’s flesh and Adam’s bone sits
in if Cair Paravel in throne the evil is over and done.
Susan: You know that doesn’t really rhyme.
Mr. Beaver: I know, but you’re missing the point!
Mrs. Beaver: It’s long been told that two sons of Adam and two
daughters of Eve will appear to defeat the White Witch, and restore
peace to Narnia.
Peter: And you think we’re the ones???
Mr. Beaver: Well you’d better be, Aslan’s already fitted out your
Peter: I think you’ve made a mistake; we’re not heroes!
Susan: We’re from Finchley!
Peter: I think it’s time we were going.
Lucy: But what about Mr. Tumnus?
Peter: Sorry Lucy. It’s out of our hands.
Susan: Thank you for your hospitality.
Peter: Ed, time to go- Ed? (looks around the room) I’m going to kill
Mr. Beaver: You may not have to…Has Edmund been to Narnia before?
(Shot of Ed walking to the Witch’s castle without his coat – shot of
the others trying to catch up to him)
Peter: Hurry up!
(They reach the top of the hill and see Ed going through the Witch’s
Lucy: (shouting) Edmund!
Mr. Beaver: Shh! They’ll hear ya!
(Peter starts to run after Edmund but Mr. Beaver grabs him by the
sleeve of his coat)
Peter: Get off me!
Peter: We just can’t let him go!
Beaver: Don’t you get it?! He’s the bait! She wants all of ya in
there!!! To kill ya!
Susan: This is all your fault! None of this would have happened if you
had just listened to me in the first place!
Peter: So you knew this would happen?
Susan: I didn’t know what would happen…
Lucy: Stop, this fighting isn’t going to help Edmund
Beaver: She’s right. Only Aslan can save him now.
Peter: Then take us to him.
Scene: Edmund at the Witch’s house
(Edmund is walking through the courtyard and see’s Giant Rumblebuffin.
He walks further in and see’s a stone lion – he draws glasses and a
moustache on it)
(Edmund continues through the courtyard, he steps over what he thinks
is a log of some sort…only to be lurched on by Maugrim!)
Maugrim: Stand still stranger!
Edmund: I’m a Son of Adam, I met the Queen in the woods!
(Maugrim gets off him)
Maugrim: My apologies, fortunate favourite of the queen – or perhaps
not so fortunate.
(walks into the throne-room)
Maugrim: Wait here (Edmund sees the glorious throne, and sits on it
longingly. Then, the witch comes up behind him and says, scaring him
half to death.)
White Witch: You like it!
Edmund: (he jumps up startled) Ye… yes, your majesty!
White Witch: I thought you might
White Witch: Tell me, you sisters, are they deaf?
White Witch: and your brother, unintelligent?
Edmund: Well I think so, but mom says…
White Witch: Then how dare you come alone! Edmund, I ask so little of
Edmund: They just don’t listen to me!
White Witch: Couldn’t even do that!
Edmund: I…I did bring them half way. There at the dam at the house of
White Witch: Well…I guess your not a total lost then.
(Edmund approaches again)
Edmund: Is there any chance I may have some more Turkish delight now?
White Witch: Ginnabrick, our guest is hungry
Ginnabrick: This way…for your num nums…
White Witch: Maugrim!!!! You know what to do….
(Maugrim let’s out a howl, Edmund realizes the horrible truth as wolves
surround the castle…they charge from the castle)
Scene: back at the beavers house
Maugrim: Take them
Mr.Beaver: Hurry Mum, they are after us!
Mrs. Beaver: right then…
Susan: What is she doing?
Mrs. Beaver: Don’t worry, you’ll thank you me later. it’s a long
journey and a beaver gets cranky when he’s hungry.
Beaver: I’M CRANKY NOW!
Susan: Do you think we should bring jam?
Peter: Only if the Witch has toast.
(Goes inside the tunnel)
Mr. Beaver: This should lead to Aslan’s
Mrs. Beaver: I thought it lead to your mums!
Lucy: They’re in the tunnel!
(run further, comes to dead end)
Mrs. Beaver: You should have brought a map!
Beaver: There was no room next to the jam!
(He jumps out of the hole. Everyone else follow. Once Peter gets out,
Lucy falls on a bunch of stone things).
(Lucy gets up! They all see stone animals!)
Mr. Beaver(looks at a stone animal): He was my best mate! (cries)
Susan: What happened to them?
Fox: This is what happens to the enemies of the White Witch.
Mr. Beaver: Stand still there traitor.
Fox: Relax, I’m one of the good guys
Mr. Beaver: Well you look mighty like one of the bad guys.
Fox: An unfortunate family resemblance, but we can discuss family
breeding later right now we need to move.
Peter: What do you suggest?
(Fox looks up)
(The Fox stays on lower ground, The Beavers & the children are in a
tree…the wolves approach)
(Wolves break through barrier as Fox is out in centre)
Fox: Evening gents, Did we lose something?
Wolf: Don’t patronized me, I know where your allegiance lies. We are
looking for some humans
Fox: Humans in Narnia, now that’s some valuable information
Maugrim: Where are they?!!!
(Lucy cries out, Peter shushes her)
(the fox looks around hopelessly , and then hangs his head in shame)
Fox : They , they , were heading North .
Maugrim : Quickly , smell them out .
(they cast aside the fox , where he lays whimpering on the ground)
(Mrs. Beaver is patching up the Fox, as the children listen to his
Lucy: are you all right?
Fox: Well, I wish I could say their bark was worse than their bite.
(He winces in pain, and continues to talk)
Mrs. Beaver: Stop squirming! You’re worse than beaver on bath day
Mr. Beaver: Worst day of the year
Fox: Well I am afraid that is all the healing I have time for.
Susan: You’re leaving?
Fox: It has been a pleasure my Queen. I have been asked by Aslan
HIMSELF to gather more troops.
Mr. Beaver: You’ve seen Aslan!
Mrs. Beaver: What is He like?
Fox: Like everything we have ever heard. He’ll be a good help fighting
the White Witch
Susan: We are not planning fighting any witch
Fox: Surely King Peter…
Peter: We just want to get our brother back.
Scene: back to the Witches house.. in the dungeon
(Edmund, in chains at the witches palace. He attempts to eat the food
he is given, but coughs and spits it out, because of its taste. He then
attempts to drink a cup, which is frozen. He then throws it on the
Mr. Tumnus: Are you gonna eat that? (from the other prison)
(Edmund gives him the food)
Edmund: Mr… Tumnus.
Mr. Tumnus: Your Lucy Pevensies brother.
Edmund: I’m Edmund!
Mr. Tumnus: You have the same nose.
(Edmund rubs his nose)
Mr. Tumnus: Is your sister alright? (no answer) Is she safe?
Edmund: I… I don’t know!
(White Witch comes in and they go back to their places)
White Witch: My wolves tore that dam apart, your little family was
nowhere to be found. (Lifts Edmund off the ground) Where are they?!
Edmund: I don’t know..
White Witch: Then you are no longer any use to me…Guard
Edmund: Wait they said something about Aslan
White Witch: Aslan! Where?
Mr. Tumnus: Stranger has only been in Narnia a short…(Hit in head)
Edmund: I left before I could hear anymore…I wanted to see you again.
White Witch: Guard!
Guard: Yes, your majesty
White Witch: Release the Faun (Guard hit chains and Tumnus cries out in
pain as they drop him by the Witch) Do you know why you are here?
Mr. Tumnus: Because I believe in a free Narnia
(Witch stares at him coldly)
White Witch: You’re here because he (points at Edmund) turned you
in…for sweeties. (turns to dwarf and guard) Take him (Tumnus)
upstairs and ready my sleigh, Edmund misses his family.
Scene: the rock bridge

Father Christmas: It hasn’t been for a hundred years. But now the
Witch’s power is crumbling. (he goes to his bag and throws it to the
Father Christmas: Lucy, Eve’s Daughter. These are for you. The juice of
the fire flower. If you, or one of your friends are wounded, one drop
of this cordial will restore them. And though I do not expect you to
use it, this.
Lucy: Well, I think I could be brave enough.
Father Christmas: I’m sure you could. But battles are ugly affairs.
Daughter, Susan. Trust in this bow, for it does not easily miss.
Susan: What happened to, ‘battles are ugly affairs?’
Father Christmas: And, though you don’t seem to have trouble making
yourself heard, this. When you put this horn to your lips and blow it,
wherever you are, help will come.
Father Christmas: And, Peter. These are tools, not toys. The time to
use them may be soon at hand.
Father Christmas: Bare them well! I best be off, winter is almost over
and things do pile up when you’ve been gone a thousand years. Long live
Aslan! (he gets in his sleigh and rides off)

Mr. Beaver: Wait, maybe I should go first.
Peter: Maybe you should.

Maugrim : Leave now while you can , and you’re brother leaves with you.
Susan : Stop Peter , maybe we should listen to him !
Maugrim : Smart girl .
Mr. Beaver : Don’t listen to him . Kill him . Kill him now !
Susan: Look, just because some man in a red suit hands you a sword
doesn’t make you a hero! So just drop it!
Beaver: No Peter! Narnia need ya!
Maugrim: What’s it gonna be Son of Adam? We’re not going to wait for
ever. And neither is the river.
Peter: Hold onto me!
(Stabs sword into the ice, and they float away…)
(They get to shore. Peter has Lucy’s coat in hand, but no Lucy.)
Susan: What have you done?!
All call out: Lucy!
Lucy (off-screen): Has anyone seen my coat?
Mr. Beaver: Your brother has you well looked after.
(Everyone laughs and embraces.)
Mrs. Beaver: I don’t think you’ll be needing those coats any more!

Answer me! (About to hit him with wand)
Edmund: Wait! The Beavers said something about the Stone Table and an
White Witch: Thank you Edmund. It is good for this creature to see some
honesty before he dies..
Edmund: NO!(Fox to stone and White Slaps Edmund across face)

theirs? If it is a war Aslan wants (turns butterfly to stone) It’s a
war he shall get.
Scene: at Aslan’s camp
Susan: Why are they all staring at us?
Lucy: Maybe they think you look funny.
Mr. Beaver: Oh stop your fussing Mrs. Beaver. You look lovely.
(Peter pulls out sword)
Peter: (To Oreius) We have come to see Aslan.
(Tent starts to blow in breeze and everyone kneels. Aslan comes from
the tent and the children kneel)
Aslan: Welcome Peter Adam’s son, Welcome Susan and Lucy daughters-of-
Eve. Welcome Beavers. You have my thanks, but where is the fourth.
Peter: That’s why we are here.
Susan: We had a little trouble along the way.
Peter: He’s been captured by the White Witch
Mr. Beaver: He betrayed them your Excellence!
Oreius: Then he has betrayed us all
Aslan: Peace Oreius.
Peter: It is my fault really. I was too hard on him.
Susan: We all were.
Lucy: Sir, he’s our brother.
Aslan: I know dear and that makes the betrayal all the worse. It may be
harder than you think
Scene: Peter and Aslan on hill
Aslan: That is Cair Paravel of the four thrones one of which you must
sit as High King.
Aslan: You doubt the prophecy
Peter: No, that’s just it…you’re not who I think I am

wanted to turn him into a hat.
(light laughes) Peter there is a Deep Magic that rules over Narnia. It
defines right from wrong and helps us fulfill destinies, both yours and
Peter: I don’t think I will be able.
Aslan: You were able to get your family here.
Peter: Not all of them.
Aslan: I will do what I can for Edmund. I too want my family safe.
Scene: Susan and Lucy are going down to the river
Susan: Mother hasn’t had a dress like this since before the war
Lucy: Maybe we had bring back a whole trunk load when we go home.
Susan: If we go home…Sorry I guess I am like that. Remember when we
use to have fun?
Lucy: Yes, before you go boring.
Susan: Oh really (Splashes water and this continues as Susan goes to
get towel and…)
Wolf: Now, We’re very tired. We’d prefer to kill you quickly.
Cut to: Peter and Aslan
(Susan’s horn is blown, Peter runs to her direction, Aslan follows him)
Cut to: Susan and Lucy
(Susan and Lucy are in a tree and wolf trying to get them. Peter come
back through the river)
(Aslan pins the second wolf to the ground and says to his group)
Stay back. This is Peter’s battle.
(The wolf attacks him. And everyone thinks he is dead)
Susan and Lucy: Peter… no!
(They run up to him, and see he is alive and looks disgusted by killing
the wolf. Aslan lets go the other wolf)
Aslan: Follow him! He’ll lead you to Edmund. Peter, clean your sword.

with your brother.
Lucy: Oh, Edmund (Hugs him and Susan does too)
Susan: How are you feeling?
Edmund: I’m feeling kinda tired
Peter: Get some rest…and Edmund try not to wander off again.
Some time later, breakfast
Lucy: Narnia isn’t going to run out of toast Edmund
Peter: then you better pack some for the journey
Susan: So were going home?
Peter: You are, I promised I’d keep you three safe but there’s no
reason I can’t stay and help.
Lucy: but they need us…All four of us
Peter: Lucy it’s too dangerous. You almost drowned, Edmund was almost
Edmund: Which is why we have to stay.
(All look at him)
Edmund: I’ve seen what the White Witch can do and I’ve helped her do
it, and we can’t leave these
people behind to suffer for it.
(Lucy holds Ed’s hand)
Susan: Well I guess that’s it then. *gets up*
Peter: Where are you going?
Susan: (picks up bow and quiver) To get in some practice.
(Susan and Lucy practice shooting at the target. Then it cuts to Peter
and Edmund practicing sword fighting)
Peter: Come on Ed, sword hand up like Oreius showed us.
(The beavers come running up. Edmund’s horse rears)
Edmund: Whoa horsey!
Horse: My name is Philip.
Edmund(shocked): Oh, sorry
Mr. Beaver: you better come quick the White Witch has requested a
meeting with Aslan…
Scene: Witch in Aslans camp
Dwarf: Jadis.. Jadis!!!
(Jadis arrives at the camp, Cyclops carry her bed-thingy…She hops
down, and walks towards Aslan)
Jadis: You have a traitor in your midst, Aslan
Aslan: His offence was not against you.
White Witch : Have you forgotten the Deep Magic ?
Aslan : Do not cite the Deep Magic to me , Witch . I was there when it
was made .
White Witch : Then you will know that the boy belongs to me . ( turns
to crowd ) That boy ( points to Edmund ) will die on the Stone Table .
Peter : Come and take it then .
White Witch : You think that a simple threat will deny me my right ,
little king ? Aslan knows that if I do not have blood as the law
demands, all of Narnia will be overturned, and perish, in fire and
Aslan : Enough , I shall talk with you alone .
(time passes and the Witch exits tent)
Aslan: The Witch has denounced her claim on Edmund
White Witch: How will I know your promise will be kept?
(Aslan roars. the White Witch falls into her seat and the Narnians
laugh. The WW leaves. Aslan sighs and walks into his tent.)
Scene: that night
(Lucy is quietly resting, when she see’s a shadow…she wakes Susan)
Lucy (whispers): Susan!
(Susan see’s the shadow, the two leave their tent. Aslan is leaving the
camp…they follow him. and
follow him…and follow him. Until-)
Aslan: Aren’t you suppose to be in bed?
Lucy: We couldn’t sleep
Susan: Please, Aslan. Couldn’t we come with you?
Aslan: I would be glad of the company tonight.
Aslan: It is time. From now on, I must go on alone. Thank you Susan.
Thank you Lucy. And farewell.
Lucy: (later after lots of jeers towards Aslan as he walks to the Stone
Table) Why doesn’t he fight back?
White Witch: Bind him. Wait. First let him be shaved.
(More jeers and catcalls…)
White Witch: Tonight, the Deep magic will be appeased, but tomorrow, we
will take Narnia, Forever!
White Witch: You know, Aslan, I’m a little disappointed in you. Did you
really think that by giving your life you would save the Human boy? Ha.
You are giving up your life, and saving no one. So much for love.
White Witch: In that knowledge… Despair… and DIE!!!!!!
(She plunges in the knife and Aslan’s growls in pain and his eyes
White Witch: The great cat is DEAD!!
(Her army cheers loudly)
White Witch (To Otmin): General, gather your army and prepare for
battle. However short it may be.
(Otmin lets out a huge roar)
Scene: after the White Witch and creatures are gone
(The girls come up and cry and lean on Aslan. Lucy gets an idea,
unscrews her potion)
Susan: It’s too late. He’s gone. I’m sure he knew what he was doing.
(then) Susan: We have to go.
Lucy: We can’t just leave him here.
Susan: Lucy there’s not time. We have to tell the others.
Lucy: The Trees
Back at Aslan’s camp in the boys’ tent
Dryad: Fear not my princes. I come with tidings of grave news..
(Peter walks out of tent)
Peter: It is true, he’s gone
Edmund: Then you’ll have to lead us. There’s a whole army out there
waiting to follow you.
Peter: I can’t
Edmund: Aslan believed you could. And so do I.
Oreius: what are your orders?
(Peter looks at map you see the battle field)
Gryphon: They come, you highness, in numbers and weapons far greater
then our own.
Oreius: Numbers do not win a battle
Peter: No, but I bet they help
(Arrival of the Witch’s army)
White Witch: I take no interest in prisoners. Kill them all
(Army charges, gryphons attack)
Otman: Look to the sky
(battle truly begins)
Peter: Are you with me?
Orieus: To the death!
Peter: FOR NARNIA, AND FOR ASLAN!!!!
(Peter’s Charge begins)
Back to the girls at the Stone Table
(Lucy and Susan wake up)
Susan: We should go.
Lucy: I’m so cold.
(They start walking away…Stone Table cracks)
Susan: What have they done?
(Aslan appears, sending shivers down EVERYONE’S spine!)
Susan and Lucy: ASLAN!
Susan: We saw the Witch, the knife.
Aslan: If the Witch knew the true meaning of sacrifice, she might have
interpreted the Deep Magic a little differently. For she would know
that if a willing victim who had committed no treachery died in a
traitors stead, the Stone Table would crack and death itself would
begin to unwind.
Susan: We sent the word that you were dead. Peter and Edmund would have
gone to war.
Lucy: (draws knife) We have to help them.
Aslan: We will, but not alone. Now, climb on my back. We have a long
ways to go and little time to get there. And you might want to cover
your ears. ROAR!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Back to the battle
Peter: Fall back! Draw them to the rocks!
Beaver: That’s the signal! Get ready!
Swish! Bang! Grunt! Crash! Clash! Roar! Aaaahhh!!! Ouch!
(Peter falls off his unicorn. Oreius and the rhino charge)
Oreius charges at the Witch: AAAAAUUUUUUGGGGGHHHHHHH!!!!!
(Witch ducks attack, parries blades, spins her wand and turns Oreius
Back to Aslan and the girls.. at the Witches house
(Cuts to stone centaur in the Witch’s castle. Lucy and Susan are
looking for Mr. Tumnus. Lucy finds him and starts to cry, while Susan
hugs her. Aslan walks up and breathes on Mr. Tumnus, and Mr. Tumnus is
restored. He falls forward into Lucy and Susan’s arm)
Lucy: Susan this is…
Susan: MR TUMNUS!!!!
(They hug….then they see Aslan)
Aslan: Come, lets search the castle – others may still be trapped
inside and Peter will need all the help he can get.
Back to the battle
Peter: Ed! There are too many of them! Go! Get out of here! Get the
girls, and get them home!
Beaver: Come on, you heard him!
(Ed starts to leave, then sees the Witch. And starts to go back)
Beaver: Peter said to go!
Edmund: Peter’s not King yet!
(Edmund rushes down the hill and breaks the witch’s sword, then she
stabs him with the remainders of her wand. so the next thing that is
actually said is a grunt issued from Edmund and… )
(Peter and the Witch fight, then they see Aslan)
(Aslan rushes to kill the Witch, everything disappears)
Aslan: It is finished.
(The three Pevensies reunite)
Susan: Where’s Edmund?
(The dwarf hobbles up and is about to finish Edmund)
Susan: Edmund! (shoots arrow, kills the dwarf)
(Edmund coughs and gasps. Lucy pulls out her cordial and places one
drop on Edmund’s lips. He stops moving momentarily before gasping and
Peter: When are you ever going to do are you’re told?
(Laughing and hugging) (Group Hug) (Lucy gets the idea to heal
everyone and she walks over too someone else who is hurt. Then you see
Cair Paravel, and horns blowing. The coronation of the Pevensies began.
They walk up the aisle happily, and stand next to their cool chairs.)
Aslan: Bring forth the crowns!
(Tumnus and Mr. Beaver bring out the crowns.)
Aslan: (As they put on her crown) To the glistening eastern sea, I give
you Queen Lucy the Valiant. To the great western woods, (puts his crown
on) King Edmund the Just. To the radiant southern sun, (puts crown on)
Queen Susan the Gentle. (crown put on) And to the clear northern skies,
King Peter the Magnificent. Once a king or Queen of Narnia, always a
king or queen.
Everyone: Long live King Peter! Long live Queen Susan! Long live King
Edmund! And long live Queen Lucy!
Aslan walking on the beach in the sunset
(Lucy runs out to the balcony and see him walking away)
Tumnus: We’ll see him again.
Tumnus: In time…you mustn’t press him, He isn’t a tame lion…
Lucy: No, but he’s good…
Tumnus: Here (pulling a hankie from his person) I think you need this
more than I do.
(she takes it and sees that Aslan has disappeared and begins to cry
softly, her and Tumnus hold hands as she looks into the sunset.)
Scene: Years later, out on horses chasing the White Stag. (Edmund slows
Edmund: You alright there Philip?
Philip: Not as young as I used to be?
Susan: Come on Ed.
Edmund: Just catching my breath
Lucy: What did he say, Susan?
Susan: You girls stay at the castle, I’ll go get the stag myself.
Peter: What is this? (they get off their horse)
Susan: It seems like a dream…
Lucy: Or a dream of a dream…Spare Oom
Peter: Not again
Lucy: Come on
Edmund: She always running off
Peter: These aren’t branches…
Susan: There coats (Voices start to change)
All: Stop pushing…ah…. (Wardrobe door flies open and all four fall
on floor, the door to the room opens and the professor walks in with
Professor: There you are. Now what were children doing the wardrobe?
Peter: You wouldn’t believe us if we told you (Professor throws ball to
Peter and with a twinkle in his eye…)
Professor: Try me
(Wardrobe at night)
(Lucy tries to get into the wardrobe and then…)
Professor: I don’t think you’ll get back in that way…you see I’ve
Lucy: Will we ever go back?
Professor: I expect so, probably when you least expect it. What’s to
say Keep your eyes open (They walk out the room and the wardrobe door
opens a crack and a light and smoke come out and we hear a roar)
