    I'm curious how they'll handle the religion thing because the Christianity of Narnia is very different from modern imperialist Christianity. But I liked the books too much to see the movie. I know how every character looks because each is what I imagined when reading the books. Movies always get it wrong. That's why I haven't seen any LOTR movies.

    I am as atheist as they come, and I *still* love Narnia!

    Regardless of source of inspiration, it is a great story.

    Tolkien supposedly told CS Lewis that all the religious allegory ruined the Narnia stories. But Tolkien supposedly hated allegory, which makes it funny how some people grasp for deep meaning in LOTR. I like Narnia, religion and all. Especially Voyage of the Dawn Treader.
