Hello!

By way of Mr. Christian over at the Barking Moonbat Early Warning System, we discover that the next installment in the Chronicles of Narnia is due out May 16.

The trailer for Prince Caspian. Enjoy!

Thanks LD. That's the first I've heard and seen of it. Looks to be on par with the quality of the first one.

And that looks awesome!
I love the story and the characters always had a bitter sweet element to it though.
Thanks for the heads up LD

Yup. The Bean's seventh birthday, and all she wants is to go see it.

Is it my imagination, or did I just see Chaka from Land of the Lost in that clip?

I'm so very glad that they're doing the movies so well. I learned to read on them (no, really - no Dick, Jane and a ball for me!), and I was horrified when I realized that children weren't reading them... They really are a great series of books.

thank you lawdog, while i'm not a christian "christian imagery" doesn't "offend" me and like "the lion, the witch and the wardrobe" i plan to enjoy this movie when it comes out on dvd. i don't think too many people in the mass market audience realise that the "lord of the rings" trilogy also was based on christian theology, but it was a cracking good story, both the books and peter jackson's film interpretation. thanks again for putting up the trailers.

I think I'm going to have to take another look at LOTR and CoN both.

I did realize their authors wrote them during the Battle of Britain or thereabouts. However, it was only yesterday that I realized where it's documented that Mr. Lewis and Mr. Tolkien were close friends. My source, Wikipedia, says both men taught at Oxford.

I don't know if it's just me having grown up in little churches in the Bible Belt, but I'd never seen hobbits, fairies, and elves as being a Christian thing. Now I'll have to gather more information.

i'd recommend that second look mustanger, your information is correct, they were friends, belonged to a literary club at oxford and critiqued each other's writing in process. both are considered among the great christian writers of the 20th century, masters of their craft.
