Heartwarming: The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe
  • Aslan's resurrection. If you don't have a lump in your throat either in the book where Aslan joyfully rumbles "Yes! It is more magic" or in the film where he's silhouetted by the sunrise, you're an incurable cynic.
  • Lewis' opening letter to his goddaughter, saying that by the time he's done writing the book she'll probably be too old for it, but eventually she'll be old enough for it again and can read it back to him.
I wrote this story for you, but when I began it I had not realized that girls grow quicker than books. As a result you are already too old for fairy tales, and by the time it is printed and bound you will be older still. But some day you will be old enough to start reading fairy tales again. You can then take it down from some upper shelf, dust it, and tell me what you think of it. I shall probably be too deaf to hear, and too old to understand, a word you say, but I shall still be
your affectionate Godfather, C. S. Lewis
  • "And Oh the cry of the Seagulls! have you heard it? Can you Remember?"
  • Mr. Tumnus and Lucy holding hands at the end of the film.
  • Lucy and Susan being with Aslan to comfort him when he goes to die on the Stone Table.
  • In the Walden Media film, just look at Lucy's face when Aslan calls her "Queen Lucy the Valiant".
  • Peter being a good brother and putting Lucy's coat around her shoulders when she gets drenched. Awww...
  • There's also the scene where Aslan and the girls invade the Witch's castle and restore all the petrified victims of her evil magic. There is a joyous power to see that there is little harm that the Witch can do that Aslan cannot undo.
    • In the movie, the first victim the girls see is Mr. Tumnus. They both naturally start crying, thinking the poor guy's done for. Then, Aslan turns him back. Cue hugs all around.
    • Also when he is turned back from being stone, he falls into Lucy's arms and she is the first person he sees. Lucy then attempts to introduce Susan to him but Susan interrupts her saying "Mr Tumnus, I know" and throws her arms around the faun she's never even met.
  • Anytime the Pevensies hug. Especially Peter in tears after Edmund comes back from the dead hugging his brother.
