  • Roger says:

    I enjoyed your podcast. You voiced many of the same doubts that I have. It was nice that you made this podcast to help alleviate my fears about the movie. I hope that you podcast more often to help keep me sane. We will see want they did on December 10. I will try to get to Biola.

  • Sir Jack says:

    I just think the beginning with the picture becoming real, and so, that scene could be really fantastic in 3D.. 😀

  • Anna's Sister says:

    I’ll just see it in 2D but I think it will be cool in 3D if they don’t over do it.

  • NarnianPrincess says:

    Good podcast

  • Lucy P. says:

    What a lovely Easter present! I just enjoyed this podcast out on my deck under the gentle sun. I have to say I agree with you guys on most points, especially the seven swords. I really hope they’re not a big deal.

  • NarniaChick says:

    I agree with you on most all of your points. I will for sure be seeing it in 2D first, and then if I have extra money, then in 3D. Having seen Alice in 3D, I know that it can be pulled off quite nicely even if it was not filmed in 3D. I totally agree with the fact about the 7 swords, and I hope that having that aspect will not change too much about the story that I love.

  • kat cal says:

    cool! Prince C in 3D! I can’t wait!

  • HisWarrior says:

    Quick comment on the seven swords. Would rather it not be in at all, but here is another suggestion of what it could be going on. What if it is just as a place of honor for any of the Lords they do not find. You know, like something to remember them by if they do not find the Lords. Long-shot thought, but that is just my suggestion.

  • pselpevensie says:

    awesome podcast! an i totally agree: if i see tilda swinton ion the movie, i will freak out (and not in a good way)! polease no witches!!
    bring on trailers!

  • narnianerd says:

    When I go see the movie I’ll see it in 3D first. To see if they made it as a 3D movie. If they did I’ll flip and not go to see the 2D one. I just hope that it doesn’t effect the 2D version.

  • Silver the Wanderer says:

    Great podcast, as usual 🙂 Concerning the swords, I would much rather it be an "annoyance" than a big deal. But considering they seem to be getting everything else right (the ending, Eustace’s undragoning, etc), here’s hoping the swords are no more than a minor addition to the story.

  • Dramermiss says:

    Great podcast. Concerning Eustace’s Undragoning… doesn’t he earn enough after he helps them rebuild the mast, hunt for food and his being shelter for the DT crew? at least the BBC version put this in Eustace doesn’t need to fight a battle after his character improves enough for him to help everyone. See VDT Chapter "How the adventure ended" pg 83 (1952 printed version)

    what digeron and is pleasant to me of 3D of Digitalis and that very well good that if finally bye.

  • Danbuster says:

    There’s news of the Silver Chair, then?

  • aravis says:

    Oooh, I could just imagine how much I would dislike it if the unfathomable fate means introducing something totally foreign to the book (what 7 swords??!!).

    But regarding the theme being "finding Aslan’s home", that’s just for Reep. For the rest of the Narnians, it’s finding the 7 lords and being on a great adventure and that’s it. And maybe that the journey is AS (not more) important as the destination.

    3D? Meh, who cares.

    • glumPuddle says:

      The theme is not "finding Aslan’s home." The theme is the longing for one’s true home, and ultimately the joy of finding it. Don’t think of "home" in the literal sense. I use the word "home" to mean "whatever is lacking in my life that will make me complete."
