Yeah, I just started reading the first bood, "The Magician's Nephew". I never read it as a child, so it should be interesting. I probably won't get a chance to read much, because I've got finals in two weeks.

Jes

Did you know that CS Lewis didn't want Narnia to be put to film? A carton maybe, but not one done by disney. Almost seems like a kick in the nuts to have the series being made into a movie by none other than disney doesn't it.


Also covered by Boing Boing.

Jenny

Yeah, and Tolkien was no fan of movies. But money speaks louder than dead Inklings.

jettloe

yeah - i read that in the guardian today - also i've just found out that Disney did not produce the film - merely put up the cash in exchange for some distribution rights - so the movie has actually been made by this right-wing nut-job company Walden Media - we'll see what they come up with!

Carrie

Walden Media - any relation to Waldenbooks of 1980s mall fame? I suppose I could look it up...

jettloe

i reading info about them now...kinda scary in a lot of ways - will keep ya posted!

Carrie

Yeah, and they are 'developing' a buncha books from my 70s childhood...god that means I'm getting old. Not connected to Waldenbooks though. Didn't know Waldenbooks was bought by Borders. Learn something new.

Eryn

You have a good point about the book not being made into a movie. I am going to see the movie, but I'm sure it cannot compare to the images swirling around in my brain, as a child, when the stories were being read to me.

Let me know what you think of the books!

Jett Loe

tune in for chapter 11 Eryn - you'll hear me discover the magical world of Naria for the first time...

I honestly have never heard of this Narnia before until I read the posts on here. It sounded like someone from Big Brother drafted in to co-host the show to me. I'd be far too busy on my ZX Spectrum back then! Books - meh! If it's a cartoon book like Asterix I'd maybe check it out though.

Kendra

When do you think they will be a second Narnia movie. I can't wait for the second one.
