Aslan Could Not Be Reached For Comment

Here's the latest trailer for The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian:

Looks to me as if the producers have thoroughly imbibed the LOTR Kool-aid.

This morning the eldest Llama-ette mentioned that she might go see TCONPC with her class from St. Marie of the Blessed Educational Method. She said she intended to take along a couple of notecards.

"Why is that?" I asked.

"So I can write down all the mistakes they make in the movie, of course!" was her reply.

Ah, that's me girl!

UPDATE: From an undisclosed location, Steve-O (yes, he's still alive, folks!) shoots me the link to Planet Narnia, a site set up by a Dr. Michael Ward to promote his new book by the same name which argues that Lewis secretly based the Chronicles of Narnia on medieval cosmology.

Of course, being almost completely defenseless against this kind of temptation, I immediately jumped over to the devil's website and ordered up a copy of the book myself. I'll let you know what I think.

I'd be interested to hear what BOTH Lewis and Tolkien would have to say about this interpretation. Especially since they used to read each other's works before publication and offer their own ideas.
