Here’s a clip:
NF: What are some of the most significant themes in the movie or book?
Georgie: I think the most significant theme is temptation. I think that’s the main one. Because every character faces its own temptation. […]
Will: And also, subsequent to the battle and temptation, there’s sort of a theme of redemption as well, you know. I think Georgie certainly experiences that and you know Skandar experiences that as well and Eustace does certainly with the transformation of the dragon.
Georgie: I think one of the really cool things about this film, is that it actually takes a lot of things from the book which aren’t played upon a lot… […] for instance, you do find out a little bit about Lucy’s jealousy of her sister, but it’s not really explained a lot, whereas in the film, it’s kind of the whole arc of my character-yeah, and it’s really great to have something grittier to put my teeth into instead of always playing very sweet and very [*smiley facial expression*] roles.
