The first film of the Chronicles of Narnia Series The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe
will hit theaters Dec 9th of 2005. The web site is up and is pretty cool - a few videos, teaser trailer available already. Should be a fun ride through the magical world of CS Lewis' Narnia. Books will be better, but it should be a great movie nonetheless. While Tolkein is not direct allegory, the Chronicles of Narnia, are very much allegories of Christian faith. The films should afford many great conversations...may the Christian imagination be provoked in our day. May the next Lewis rise among us.
