The New Narnia Movie: Prince Caspian

It is wonderful. Go see it, if you haven't already.

We have seen it twice. We enjoy supporting good, wholesome movies, and this one is beautifully done. It made me want to go home and re-read the books. It is a good thing they changed it for the screen. The book was has too many twists and turns, and too many more confusing characters, like Bacchus. Yikes. That would never do for a kids movie. Hope they are working on the Dawn Treader next. What fun that will be to see it on the screen.

I am glad a re-read if after seeing the movie. And it has been fun to re-read the whole set. They are such quick reads.

The Chronicles of Narnia are my favorites! You are right, they are quick reads, but they are GOOD reads too.

We went to see the movie last weekend (to the tune of 27.00) and it was so good. My son was disappointed that Susan and Peter would not return to Narnia and asked a LOT of questions about that. Doesn't Dawn Treader have the puddle....something, the one footed characters? I would love to see what Disney does with that part of the story!

Hey!
My name is Amber, I'm an official ambassador for the upcoming movie City of Ember (10/10/08), I'm coming to you first because I have some exclsuive first-look pictures that you might enjoy and share with your blog readers.
Email me if you want them, I'd love to share them with you.
Bill Murray looks great as the villainous Mayor Cole. Have you heard anything about the book by Jeanne Duprau?
Again, really think you'd like City of Ember because of your clear enthusiasm towards Narnia.
Would love to be in touch!

Best,
