The Chronicles of Narnia is a series of films based on the books in The Chronicles of Narnia series- which were written by the famous author C. S. Lewis. As yet (2012), only three out of the seven books have been made into films:

Movies Based On The Chronicles of Narnia

The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe (2005): It is difficult to name only one protagonist for this film. One could argue that Aslan the lion is the main character, as he can be seen as an allegorical representation of Jesus. However, C. S. Lewis dismissed that idea, choosing the term 'suppositional incarnation' instead. Other possible main characters include the four Pevensie children: The brothers and sisters Peter, Susan, Edmund and Lucy. The antagonist in both novel and film is Jadis, the White Witch.

Prince Caspian (2008): Prince Caspian himself is perhaps the main character of this particular Narnia story, although all the four Pevensie children from the previous movie also feature heavily in the film. This time, the antagonist is Prince Caspian's evil uncle, King Miraz.

The Voyage of the Dawn Treader (2010): In this movie, Brother and Sister Edmund and Lucy Pevensie (familiar from the the previous two films) return to Narnia, this time accompanied by their cousin Eustace. Prince Caspian (now King Caspian) also features heavily, with Aslan also making various appearances.

The Magician's Nephew, (which is actually the first book in The Chronicles of Narnia series of novels), is intended to be the next movie in the film series, instead of The Silver Chair as might have been expected were the films to follow the sequence of the books themselves. However, this film is not yet in development, and is not expected until at least 2014.

aslan is the lion (but not in it til the end) - edward is the boy who is tempted to turn against his family - by the white witch . peter is the leader and 'all round good guy' and is the main person in the movie - but at the expense of lucy (who is so in the book)  .

Actually, Aslan is the main character in the book. He is an allegorical representation of Jesus Christ, and the four children merely represent humanity who has to be saved by the sacrifice of Jesus. I would agree that the main character in the move was Peter, though.

If u ask me, i will say Aslan is the main character but Aslan mostly comes in the end. Peter is in the movie from the start to the end. So i think that peter is the main character of the story.

The main character is the lion, Aslan, who is the real ruler of Narnia and turns out to be more poweful than anyone else. Other important characters include the White Witch, Jadis (played by Tilda Swinton) who has condemned Narnia to a permanent winter (but with no Christmas!) She is Aslan's mortal enemy, and in order to destroy her power over Narnia, Aslan needs four human children to fulfil a prophecy, that two boys and two girls would eventually become the kings and queens of the country.

These four children are the Pevensey brothers and sisters - Peter, Susan, Edmund and Lucy - and they are the other major characters. The children get into Narnia through a wardrobe, and the youngest (Lucy) is originally guided by a faun called Tumnus. She then leads the others into Narnia, and the adventure begins. There are a number of other characters too, mostly non-human, but these are the main ones.

That is wrong! The main character in the MOVIE is Peter Pevinse. Aslan is not even the main character in the book! The main character in the BOOK is Lucy Pevinse. I don't know why they maid Peter the main character in the movie, but annon's question was "Who is the main character in the narnia MOVIE." so, wordy was wrong.
