Narnia spoof features “wise-but-horny lion”

Narnia spoof features “wise-but-horny lion” December 13, 2006


I just got a plot synopsis for Epic Movie, the looks-so-lame movie parody that comes out January 26. The synopsis alludes to a few films that do not come up in the trailer now playing in theatres:

The twisted minds of two of the six writers of “Scary Movie” tackle the biggest mega-blockbusters of all time in EPIC MOVIE. The story centers on four not-so-young orphans: one raised by a curator at the Louvre (where an albino assassin lurks), another a refugee from Mexican “libre” wrestling, the third a recent victim of snakes on her plane, and the fourth a “normal” resident of a mutant “X”-community. The hapless quartet visits a chocolate factory, where they stumble into an enchanted wardrobe that transports them to the land of Gnarnia (with a “G”). There they meet a flamboyant pirate captain and earnest students of wizardry – and join forces with, among others, a wise-but-horny lion to defeat the evil White Bitch of Gnarnia.

The lion himself is not shown in the trailer or in any other promotional items that I’ve seen, and I am mildly curious to see what sort of reaction he gets, given that many Christians are inclined to regard Aslan not as a fictitious character but as Jesus himself. It could almost be fun to see this film get attacked for “blasphemy” or some such thing — but frankly, I’d be surprised if the film, which looks so so dumb, got any attention at all.
