I liked it a lot, too... but it doesn't really fit into their timeline. >_> I mean, I get doing the movies in published order... I prefer that... but its really weird to go back to the time when the first 4 were ruling Narnia after moving multiple stories beyond that...

Well, depending on the money to be made they will. :P It really wouldn't surprise me- TMN especially would be a really good fantasy aside from it being Narnia. HAHB is pretty good, too. Breeheehinnybrinnyhooheehaw is definitely a classic character. ;)

I just hope they don't ruin it. :shame: They've done well with the other ones though... even if I didn't care for Prince Caspian (the movie)

The Silver Chair is my second favorite Narnia book! I'm very glad Walden Media isn't making this film. After the shipwreck called Dawn Treader, I don't trust them with the series.
I love the ToO!

I liked the Dawn Treader movie. :noway: Also, and while this is apparently an unpopular opinion, I really liked Prince Caspian as well.

I did like the Dawn Treader. But I didn't like how they portrayed the magician.

From basically every vantage point, the Narnia movies have gotten progressively worse. :( I wish they wouldn't keep trying.

I personally liked Prince Caspian best. LWW a close second. Dawn Treader (one of my fav books) did disappoint me. But I think it's possible to do them right, if they don't mess with the source material too much.

It's less about messing with the source material and more about just making a good movie. ;) VOTDT was not a good movie, and not because it didn't stay faithful to the book.

That's probably more what I mean. But a movie adaptation will be better if it doesn't necessarily follow the book to the letter, but is true to the soul of the book. The Lord of the Rings were good fantasy adaptations; too bad Narnia couldn't have been quite up to that standard.
In VotDT, I didn't really get why they had to put that green mist plot in. I get why movies have to have something tying them together, not episodic like the book, but they could have done something different. I liked the old BBC version (despite the effects) and they didn't feel the need to tie it together with green mist or whatever.

Well... "soon".

Joe Johnston (Captain America: The First Avenger, The Rocketeer) has been added on as director. \:D/

And since there isn't an active Narnia topic. The Logos Theatre in South Carolina is doing the first ever production of Prince Caspian as a play with Douglas Gresham's blessing. My sister saw it over the weekend and it's supposed to be a really good adaptation. http://theacademyofarts.interticket.com/

Wow, three and a half years since the last post, and now there's a director. :lol: Well, "soon" is a relative word! Thanks for the info, KF. I hadn't heard anything about this project in a long time.

That play sounds great! :D Very cool.
