    Yes, the book has a lot of religious symbolism, but I didn't even realize that until I was an adult, and I reread the book a thousand times as a kid. It's subtle in the book, and it's not preachy.

    Can anyone explain to me why they don't start by recording the first Narnia book, The Magician's Nephew? I mean how are they going to make a movie out of the last book if they haven't done the first?

    That's the chronological order of the story, but it's not the order in which Lewis told it, Astro. "The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe" is the first in the series, and probably far and away more popular.

    Yeah, I think they wanted to start with LWW because it tends to be the favorite - personally I think its a smart move. In terms of the religious stuff... I read these books a ton before I realized there was supposed to be any symbolism. I think that like a lot of books, there are different levels. I don't think they are playing up any of the religious stuff for the movie.

    Have any of the rest of you Narnia-philes run across the dramatizations of all the books done by Focus on the Family's Radio Theatre? This isn't just someone reading the book, but an actual dramatization. I've heard the first three or four and they are excellent.

    My daughter gradually bought all seven of them as they were put out, but I think all seven are available in one package now, and at a much more economical price. They'll keep you going until the movie comes out.

    eta: Toby, that link didn't work for me.

    whoops, sorry, must have added an extra "/" at the end. Here's the link again:

    Let me know if that doesn't work for you!

    I saw the preview during Revenge of the Sith as well although not the midnight showing and I must say that the preview was better than the whole Star Wars movie. I can't wait to see it. Does anyone remember a Wonderworks production of this story? It was from the late 70's or early 80's?

    I own a copy of the 1988 British version. I love watching it and can't wait to see the new one. There is also a cartoon version that was released in the late 70s.
