I was very sad when I heard that Disney had dropped its role in producing the Chronicles of Narnia films. I had been waiting for "The Voyage of the Dawn Treader," the one book out of the series filled with wild, fantastic images made for the big screen.
That's not to say that I was overly enthused about the movies that Disney had produced. I think they went about producing and releasing them incorrectly, as does this writer/producer.
I think that there is an audience of Lewis fans who are outspoken Christians who would plop their money down to see a movie done artfully with state-of-the-art casting and production values, like The Passion of the Christ.
I was just happy to see someone - anyone - interpret the films and TRY to stay close to the unique storytelling, the fantastic world, and the truly memorable allegories present throughout the series.
Now the someone is Twentieth Century Fox. I hope they take their time, do it right..even it means reshuffling the deck of who is supplying the creative vision.
