I love those books!
I am the weirdo who sits next to you on the bus!
One of my favorites from childhood!
They're really going into epic fantasy in the movies, eh?
Wonder what will be next? The Bellgariad? Or more children's stuff like The Dark is Rising?

They seem to have discovered with Harry Potter and LotR that popular fantasy books, faithfully adapted, make for very profitable movies.Originally Posted by [b
I still haven't figured out if they'll do all seven Narnia books, or if they'll combine some into one movie, or if they'll skip some altogether.
LOTR? Faithfully adapted? They destroyed the main character, the Ents, Faramir.... need I go on?Originally Posted by [b
I've got mixed feelings about the Chronicles of Narnia movie. The series is one of my all-time favorites. There is potential for it to be done well & faithfully adhere to the book, but, likewise, there is also the possibility that one of my favorite stories will be utterly ruined. I'll most likely see it when it comes out, and pronounce my judgment then. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_n_32.gif[/img]

Yay! Now I'll finally get to know what the heck "Turkish Delight" is! I never really got into the books that much. They were a bit too british for me, and now that I'm older, the whole christianity reference thing puts me off.
Speaking of old cheesy movies, I saw a cartoon Lord of the Rings over my friends's house a while back. They filmed real people running, and then traced and colored over them, frame by frame. It looked really sweet!
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.

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