Episode 70: Discussing the “aptedation” in the podcast we didn’t record

Posted October 27, 2010 4:21 pm by Rilian 46 Comments

43 minutes

The NarniaWeb Council returns to discuss the new quote from Director Michael Apted. Rilian, glumPuddle, Warrior4Jesus and Dr. Elwin Ransom give their thoughts on how they feel about this direction as well as the potential ramifications and getting to the heart of the question: “Does this really reflect CS Lewis’s chronicles?”

For reference, here is the full quote from Michael Apted: “We were able to steal, really, from the book CS Lewis didn’t write, which is the one that would have gone between The Dawn Treader and The Silver Chair. He starts The Silver Chair with the witches building up an army underground to attack the above world, and Caspian, having married The Blue Star of  is an old man with a son, and he married the Blue Star of Ramandu. In other words, a lot of things had happened between the books. So there were elements that we were able to draw out of that non-existent story and inject into this story to give it a bit more sense of purpose. And the CS Lewis estate didn’t seem to mind that, because there is a big hole in the story if you’re going to be literal about it. Whereas Star Wars and Harry Potter are a bit more attentive to that flowing stream of franchise narrative, Mr Lewis wasn’t so keen on it. But it enabled us to find a stronger reason for the journey, since there is no real reason for the journey as it stands.”
