I often wander whether I love trees and animals because of Narnia or whether I loved Narnia because I loved trees and animals. Either way the thought that a place existed through a wardrobe where animals and trees were our friends kept me enthralled for years.
When the new Disney movie came out for the Lion, The Witch, and the Wardrobe .... I immediately went and saw it. And I loved it. I somehow missed Prince Caspian in the theatre. But Arctic Fox mentioned that he watched it and thought it was so-so. So I rented it last night and though I didn't think it was as good a LW&W... Liam Neeson is still the voice of Aslan and the kids were the same. And seeing the talking animals ... whose portrayal is so majectic. Lets say LW&W was 5 stars for me and Caspian was only 4.5 stars.
It's been at least 20 years since I last read any of the Narnia tales. It's high time that I spend a little time with C.S. Lewis and read them as an adult.
Did you read Narnia as a child? As an adult? Have you seen either of the Disney movies?
