    Hmm. When I first started seeing posters for this movies I had very mixed feelings about it. On one hand I’m incredibly excited to see updated film versions of the series. The BBC ones were wonderfully true to the stories but the filmmaking would be laughable today.

    On the other hand, this new series has been incredibly adept at “de-Christianizing” the themes, and as this story is one of the more spiritually oriented (with notably very little in the way of action) I’m awaiting this film with no small amount of dread. Hopefully the new director will not share Adamson’s compulsion for epic battle sequences.

    From the trailer it looks like the plot is probably mostly intact. I just hope they don’t leave out any of the important character development bits for Lucy, Eustace and others.

    So, you’re writing the Bible-study guides for the movie?

    “Think of the lost souls…”

    If the filmmakers maintain that theme throughout the movie, it could be a winner!!!
