They're good movies and decent books. The new one looks a little too much like LOTR to be a Disney movie. If they were going to put that much action in them, they should have gone with New Line.

I agree, the Disney does take away. On the other hand. look at Pirates. That's Disney, and I thought it was pretty actioney (yes, I just made up my own word Laughing ).

But you misspelled it Laughing I thought the first one had a lot of action in it towards the end so I'm not worried about that. I think the lack of blood is really the only thing that Disney really pushes for; I remember a lot more blood in the books.

Okay, I have a question. I wasn't aware that they could even do a sequel for Narnia. I presumed that it was a novel and that the movie was it. But now it's come to my attention that they are making a sequel, so I assuming their is a book for this one too. My question: how many books are their?

7 books; you should be able to find collections of them. One takes place before the last movie (Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe is the second book, chronologically).

Apparently, a lot of people dismissed the first one as being too childish, so that's probably why the're making this one darker. As for New Line, I liked LOTR but to me, it lacks the emotion Narnia has (and it's too late now anyway).

I thought that LOTR had more emotion than Narnia, but that's just me. I've only cried in one movie in my life, and that was Return of the King, during the last few scenes. When Narnia can make me do that, I'll agree with you on that point. Smile

I agree with you on that one Ben, LOTR was ALOT more emotional. The first Narnia movie was good, but it wasn't among my favorite movies.

Yep, I've read all of them. The books are better than the movie, in my opinion.

Allright! Rock On! As for which being better, both are awesome in their own way. I'd have to say the books win, but it's pretty close.

Yes I have, Reepicheep. Smile Loved 'em with all my being. I gotta reread Prince Caspian before the movie though.

I've read all of them, although it was many moons ago. I loved them all, with The Horse and His Boy being my favorite. However, I get a lot of rap for that. Smile

The only thing that annoyed me was Puzzle and the lion skin. Agh! Hated that part. But anyway...I thought the movie was absolutely awesome and I can't wait for Caspian! My sister is a die-hard fan (much more than me) and keeps me fairly up to date with it all. Even if I do tune her out occasionally. Wink

Ha, ha. I drive my sister crazy with Caspian updates also. But really Mara Jade, you shouldn't tune her out 'cause I know how annoying it is.
