Apparently, Disney is set to film Voyage of the Dawn Treader after having previously indicated the movie was off. In a previous post, I discussed my feelings about this. Essentially, I was unhappy with the embellishments in the movie and believe that the drop in revenue was associated with Lewis fans showing their displeasure. I reviewed Prince Caspian. The title was: A Review of Prince Caspian- One Disappointed Christian.
From my readings in the blogosphere, it looks like we may be in for more with the Voyage of the Dawn Treader. This is unfortunate, as this is one of my favorite of all of them.

I have always thought that it would be difficult to make a full length movie out of all seven books in the Narnia series. I was concerned that if the books were forced to fit into the ‘full length movie’ paradigm that ‘enhancements’ and ’embellishments’ would necessarily have to follow. I find that many Christians much preferred something true to the text. A cinematic version of the movies still would be nice, and I personally wouldn’t mind if they maxed out at 40 minutes. That is better than ‘filler’ stuff that is questionable as to whether or not it aligns with what Lewis would have wanted.

I’ve heard a handful of rave reviews for Prince Caspian the movie but can’t say that I can join them in their enthusiasm. I feel even like I ought to title this review something like “A review of that movie which is titled after Prince Caspian and has characters similarly named and slight plot resemblances.” […]

I was delighted to learn today that the ChristianPost.com ran a column I wrote defending CS Lewis against the charge of Paganism. I mentioned this column a week or so ago, as my friends at LaiglesForum.com also ran it. You may not know that Lewis has been charged with such things, but even a half […]

If you really want to fix it in your heads what that path looks like and what it means to travel on it I want you to think of the books by Tolkein that have recently been made into movies- The Lord of the Rings trilogy. Doesn’t that series resonate within us so deeply because we secretly desire to live in that world? Do you think that is an accident? Some do! I am telling you that you ARE living in that world, if you have eyes to see it. You need only take the path to the right. As you make your way down that narrow path you will have to cut down vines, move boulders, and cross rivers- hard work, true. But you will journey with elves, dwarfs, hobbits, and men.
I am inviting you to join, not the fellowship of the ring, but the fellowship of the King.
