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’ve never quite understood how they wanted to make movies out of the entire series… (The Horse and His Boy… a full movie? Really?) but I’d rather see books combined into a single movie than a book bloated in order to fit the feature length movie mold.
The blogosphere seems to contain ample warnings from purists like myself, so if Disney still abuses the text, they’ll have no one else to blame but themselves…
Unless they have a blockbuster, of course. Then they can smile smugly. I guess the proof is in the pudding.
