    I can't remember if there's a thread somewhere on this already, but if so, it's sunk to the back pages. Anyway, this looks to be a great movie. The effects are being done by Weta (Now the ILM of fantasy). I also purchased the video game today (EXTREMELY well polished for a movie game), and judging from the stuff shown in the clips, it stays pretty close to the book, which is one of my favorites of all time. I really hope this movie's BIG so they'll make all seven. Oh, and the first person to "point out" that this is the "second" book in the series, ask yourself, "Is 'A New Hope' the fourth movie in the Star Wars series?"

    LOL... My husband had the "second book" question. Had to explain the concept of the prequel to him!

    I cannot wait for this to come out. Big fan of Narnia. We will definitely go see it.

    Yeah, the new publisher for the Narnia books re-ordered them by the fictional timeline (The Magician's Nephew first, The Horse and His Boy third), but it looks like Disney is going to stick to the original order.

    It makes sense once you read the book, and most of the other titles don't seem so wierd. Here they are, in order (the REAL order, the one they were written in).

    The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe
    Prince Capsian
    The Voyage of the Dawn Treader
    The Silver Chair
    The Horse and His Boy (some animals in Narnia are intelligent)
    The Magician's Nephew
    The Last Battle

    I know. It's one of my favorite books of all time and I would have been pretty retaliatory if I thought you were bashing it. I admit that my first reaction when I heard the title was, "What's a wardrobe?"

    This just in: I checked IMDB, and Liam Neeson is doing the voice of Aslan (the lion), and Tilda Swinton (Gabriel, from Constantine) is playing Jadis (the witch). The wardrobe will be playing itself.
