Oh. My. Word. That had to be one of the best movies we've seen this year! The kids were all fantastic in their roles... they really seemed like brothers and sisters. Liam Neeson was awesome as the voice of Aslan. When I think of some of Christ's words now, that is the voice I hear speaking. Gentle, yet commanding. Warm, inviting, but with authority. Gives me shivers (in a good way!)
We have the BBC version of this movie, but I know we'll be adding this new one when it is released on DVD. The special effects were so well done, the scenery was amazing, and the acting was superb. Yes, there were a few changes from the book, but on the whole, it was fairly faithful. The kids are already asking for new movies of the next books. And my husband, who has never read any of them, is ready to start now.
If you weren't planning on seeing it, GO. If you were planning, but haven't seen it yet, what are you waiting for???
