Differences from the Book

  • In the book, Ms. Prizzle does not join Aslan and instead runs in fear when Aslan roars. However in this version, Prizzle, whom is teaching multiplication tables in an all boys school at the time hears a noise outside, and is asked by Aslan to join the group. It is only after the students run in fear after hearing Bacchus's cry Prizzle joins the group happily.
    • The students from the school are presumed by the narrator to have been turned into the pigs that ended up in the area after these events.
    • These changes to Ms. Prizzle's character were at the request of Dilys Hamlett, who voiced her in this version.
