Jonathan R. Scott,
The Care Bears live in a faraway place up in the clouds called Care-a-Lot. They travel around the world on Missions in Caring, whilst evil villains such as Professor Coldheart and Lord No Heart, try to thwart their plans.
Four children, Peter, Susan, Edmund and Lucy are evacuated to the country in World War 2. They stay in a large house owned by an old Professor. First Lucy, then Edmund, then all four children find their way through an old wardrobe into Narnia, a magical land with talking animals and mythical creatures such as fauns and dwarves. But Narnia is held under a magical spell by the evil White Witch to ensure it's always winter but never Christmas. The children have to battle evil creatures and deal with betrayal and treachery but make many good friends as well. Finally, with the help of Aslan (The Lion) they defeat the evil witch and spring and freedom come back to Narnia.Written by

An adventure to dazzle the eye, delight the senses, gladden the heart! Four unique adventurers enter the magical world of Narnia - a land of talking animals and mystical creatures. And join a noble lion in battle against the evil White Witch.
At around 15 min into the film, when Lucy is at the wardrobe while she and the others are playing hide and seek, the left door on the wardrobe is open. Then in the next shot, both doors are closed just as she opens both doors. See more »
You're not a bad faun at all! You're the nicest faun I've ever met.

SPECIAL EDITION: In 2006, this TV movie was released on a Special Edition DVD with audio commentary, interviews, a deleted scene, and sketches and artwork. However, the film was presented in a wide screen format with the top and bottom of the original picture removed. See more »
If you appreciate the Narnia books, you should find a way to see this movie. Though very stylized, it is a solid adaptation of the classic story.
In fact, this movie is only genuinely unfaithful to the book in one (inexplicable!) place: the "Father Christmas" scene is mostly omitted. Maybe they didn't have a clear idea of the look they should go for with him, who knows? At least they cover it well, later in the movie.
Special note must be given to the sound in this film: the voice work (at least in the English version!) is quite good, with the exception of Lucy's crying, which is really, really terrible. And definitely pay attention to the musical score--it is one of the best I've ever heard in an animated film.
If you can find it, give it a watch you won't be disappointed.
