Aslan is coming....

As we went to see the Star Wars "Episode III: Revenge of the Sith" this weekend, we were fortunate enough to see the trailer* for the upcoming film "The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe," from C.S. Lewis' 7-book series "The Chronicles of Narnia," coming out December 9th. Walden Media is producing, who also put out such family-friendly movies as "Holes," "Because of Winn-Dixie," "I Am David," and the upcoming "Charlotte's Web" with Julia Roberts as the voice of Charlotte. I must say I was awed by just the trailer, and can't wait to see the completed product this Christmastime. The Chronicles will be the 7-year replacements for "The Lord of the Rings" Trilogy, IMHO.

*To find the trailer, you must enter the Wardrobe, click "The Movie" under the Lion's head on the gate, and then select "The Production Room." You must then navigate through the menu to find it under "video" (the TV).

Update: It has been announced that there will be 4 different soundtracks released for this movie--a film score soundtrack, a Christian artists album, a rock and pop album, and a children's album--in order to appeal to a larger audience.

I wonder is Disney is teaming up with them to redeem itself post-Eisner?? I’m still worried that although he has finally been dethroned that he would have left a crew of like-minded clones behind to carry on his destruction of traditional Disney values. Can Disney rise from the ashes and be a true family company again?

(One can only hope...)
