« George Best - Coming Home to Belfast | Main | Female Action Couple in London »

November 28, 2005



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.


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.


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


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!


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


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


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.


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!

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.


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