I caught this little poster out in public for the first time today. It looks as though Walden Media, and the folks over at Disney, are taking movie audiences back to C.S. Lewis' mythical land of Narnia again this coming summer. Cinematical, a movie news site, had the following to say:
Directed once again by Andrew Adamson, Prince Caspian is a follow-up to the highly-successful The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe -- and seeing as you folks shelled out more than $730 million to watch that flick, I'd say you're probably pretty stoked about the sequel.
I for one include myself in the category of "folks" who are "stoked about the sequel." As a young(er) boy, the tale of Prince Caspian became my most-loved book out of the Chronicles of Narnia. I spent many warm summer afternoons with my grandma and siblings adventuring about the woods and creek of my grandparents' home.
I hope the movie captures the themes of manhood, leadership, courage, faith, and loyalty that Lewis so masterfully worked into his book. Though the book, and most surely the coming movie, does not present the gospel which alone saves, its colorful allegory may prove to be a helpful illustration and stimulation unto "love and good deeds" for those princes and princesses who, by way of adoption, serve in the court of the King of Kings already.
