Read the books during my primary school years, fantastic books. , wonder if they will live up to the books. Those who have watched this movie or read the book and Lord of the Rings will note some similarities. If i remember correctly, the two authors were buddies and members of some kinda writers club some thing like our CS.
definitely more than 3 books. The magician's nephew is the 2nd book written, it was written after "The Lion, The Witch & The Wardrobe", however it is meant to be the 1st in the series. There are all together 7 books in the Chronicles. The last being "The Last Battle" The ending is quite anti climatic............
Readers of the Bible will see the parallel to Chronicles of Narnia. From the creation of Narnia(Genesis), Aslan (God and Christ) to the Last Battle (Revelations). CS Lewis is after a great writer of Christian literature and essay writer after he accepted Christ as his saviour. He is also a conteporary, colleague, good friend of J.R.R Tolkien, an eminent Catholic.
Watch it last weekend at JB's City Sq. Couldn't wait for the premier in Spore, has been my must-watch since young after LOTR. Wondering why Spore is showing it after Dec 22. It has been on the big screen in JB since Dec 8.
The CGIs for the show is really fantastic, talking animals, fauns and centaurs. It's less darker than LOTR, but still dont think it's for children below 12. (For CS's parents, pls dont bring young children for such movies)
No this movie is featured only the story from "The Lion, The Witch & The Wardrobe", the children were crowned kings and queens at the end, and stayed in Narnia for years before tumbling on the lampost again before finding themselves back in the wardrobe. Then the chronicles will continue with them going back to Narnia again and again.
