CNN has a short article about CS Lewis sharing his thoughts on the possability of Narnia film before he died. He approved of a radio series and perhaps a cartoon, but not a live-action film. Lewis wrote: “Anthropomorphic animals, when taken out of narrative into actual visibility, always turn into buffoonery or nightmare — at least with photography. Cartoons would be another matter. A human, pantomime, Aslan would be, to me, blasphemy.” If only Lewis could have seen what can be done with CGI today! Read the full story here. Thanks to Rilian, Alynne, and Esther for the heads up!
