Actually, I think you make a better point than I do.... You saw my earlier post. *bleh*
I understand where you're coming from, and I don't at all disagree with you. In fact, if something makes you feel that way, then God is probably telling you that it's wrong. I got that feeling from Fantasy Forest, which is why I'm not there any more. I felt so anxious and creeped out that I couldn't sit still. I prayed about it, and then I got on the internet, made my good-bye post, and the feeling was immediately gone. I also got it from a book called "The Pool of Radiance." I still read the book, and I discovered that the farther into it that I got, the less the feeling came. So, I figure that once the feeling hits, I'd better put the book down next time. Funny how these things work.
The reason that I read HP is simply this - I never had that feeling. I even prayed about it, a lot, and the feeling never came. Maybe it's different for some people, maybe it's just God's way of keeping us safe. So, you see where I'm coming from? Or was that as confusing as what I wrote last time...
Woohoo! Back on topic. Orlando as the guy in the Chair (that's what I've always called him)? I think Liv would be good as the Snake-lady. *snicker*
That's all, folks. Have a nice day.

You konw, Dun, I never had that feeling from FF... but then, my main character was also on the Light Side. I see why it bothered you, reading Necro's posts, and all-- he was a bit scary-- but FF still didn't bother me in the same manner as HP did. I've read some books that parts bother me... LotR... the movie version of RotK... a lot of that REALLY bothered me, though one would think it shouldn't. That's just one example.
I suppose we had best carry this off into Trinity's thread now, as she did make it... snrk.
Going to post there now...

As much as I dislike Keira Knightley, I think she'd be cool as either Susan or Lucy in 'The Horse and his boy'. Also, the voice of Mr Beaver HAS to be John Rhys-Davies.
Hmmm... it'd be seriously tricky casting the kids. I hope they use unknowns rather than established child stars, like Rory Culkin and Daniel (shudder) Radcliffe. Although Emma Watson could be good as Susan, they both bug the hell out of me.
Cate Blanchett would rock as Jadis... or how about the woman who played Andromache in Troy? She was really good.
Aslan... argh, tricky.
Keys to the Kingdom (yes, that series again, LOVE IT) is quite a bit Christian based as well. It's always talking about the Architect of the universe (Matrix flashbacks...), but, very nicely, the Architect is a SHE! WOOOO! And also, each one of the Days (people in control of the House, which is basically an alternate universe in itself) is an embodiment of one of the seven deadly sins. Monday was sloth, Tuesday was greed, so Wednesday's gonna be lust... should be interesting...
Hurray for Narnia coming out next Christmas! Something to look forward to in the place of LOTR!!!!

Though of something else. Wouldn't Ian McKellen be cool as Digory's uncle? (name evades me at the moment) Also, Miranda Otto (Eowyn) would be cool as the serpent-green-dress-lady (waves Eowyn flag)
Also, Johnny Depp should play something. Don't care what. He just has to be in it. Oooh! How about Mr Tumnus? He could so do that.
Also, Hayden Christainsen must be fitted in. Edmund in 'The Horse and his Boy', maybe. Or Tirian, or Rilian in 'The Last Battle'. Again, don't care what, he just has to be in it somewhere.
Maybe Miranda Otto could be the star's daughter, actually? In 'Voyage of the Dawn Treader'? That's my favourite book. Oooh, can't wait to see the Dufflepuds. They rock so much. Anyone else want to join the Dufflepud fanclub?
Post by Aravis Tarkheena on Oct 22, 2004 20:57:03 GMT -5
May I join to? Dufflepuds are ssoooooo cool!!!!!!!!
The talking mice are cool to. And the talking horses. And the Centaurs and Wood nymphs and fawns,and everything else I like!!!!!!!! (Aahh!! I like all of them!!) Maybe there could be a talking animals and cool people of Narnia fan club??
I'm not sure if Ian McKellen would be good as Digory's Uncle(his name is Andrew); but he might do a good job as Digory when he's older. Or he could be the evil Miraz in 'Prince Caspian".......................no ....he's usually a good guy ......but he did do a great job as "Magneto" in X-Men.
Hhmm.....Johnny Dep could play as the first mate on King Caspian's ship in "The Voyage of the Dawn Treader".
I wonder who could play "Governor Gumpus" in the" Dawn Treader"? Any Ideas??

Hey Everybody! I'm new to the boards, but I thought I would drop by and say a few words about my favorite series next to LOTR.
I agree with Trinity! I'm more worried about who's going to be playing Caspian and the kids. Caspian is my favorite character in the books, besides Peter. I think it would be interesting if Olando played Caspian, however, I am a huge fan of the previous movies and I think he would be a little too old... we could get whatisname from Peter Pan to play him, :chuckles at the thought: Or maybe Michael Mahonen? I liked him a lot in Road to Avonlea... but he's probably to old now... I don't know, I just hope they pick someone as good as the previous Caspian (Samuel West and Jean Marc Perret).
PS- just a side note, my Golden Retriever is named Prince Caspian. hehe! good huh?

sorry, three posts in a row, but I thought you guys might be interested in this...
Trivia for Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch & the Wardrobe, The (2005) Walden has optioned the entire seven-part "Chronicles of Narnia" fantasy book series for film development.
The movie had two fake working titles: "The Hundred Year Winter" and "Paravel".
The Director, Andrew Adamson, who himself is from West Auckland, along with some of his production crew, were given a traditional Maori welcome onto a Maori meeting house near the West Auckland studios. This was done as a sign of respect to the local tribe of West Auckland whose lands will be used for filming locations.
When placing ads in "The New Zealand Herald" for extras, the call was put out for people under 4ft and over 7ft. Extras calls were made in the NZ main cities of Auckland, Wellington and Christchurch over a period of two weeks.
The makers asked for permission to bring in 12 reindeer to New Zealand to pull the Ice Queen's sled. The Ministry of Agriculture and Forestry denied, citing the potentially deadly "Q fever" reindeer population in the US suffers as the reason. However, 8 wolves were allowed in for filming in Auckland.
Nicole Kidman was considered for the role of The White Witch.
"The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe" is the first book in the series. It was the first of the seven to be written; in fact, Lewis never intended at the time to write a single sequel, let alone six. However, many younger readers mistakenly think that "The Magician's Nephew" (actually Book 6) is the first book in the series because if the books are read in Narnia's chronological order (i.e., Y happened before X, even though X was written first), "The Magician's Nephew" is read first because it is the story of Narnia's creation. New publications of the books are numbered in this order instead of the order Lewis wrote them in; however, some readers argue that this spoils the mystery and effect of the story's various revelations, especially as regards "The Magician's Nephew".
Cast (in credits order) Georgie Henley .... Lucy Pevensie William Moseley .... Peter Pevensie Skandar Keynes .... Edmund Pevensie Anna Popplewell .... Susan Pevensie Tilda Swinton .... Jadas, the White Witch Rupert Everett .... Fox (voice) Dawn French .... Mrs. Beaver (voice) James McAvoy .... Mr. Tumnus the Thorn Shane Rangi .... General Otman Patrick Kake ....

Don't worry about posting three times in a row, SwordMaiden!!! I don't think any of us mind...
Wow, you got a lot of info on the movies!!! I was at the theater on Saturday and saw a wardrobe stand advertising for "The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe" and was SO excited!!! I actually considered trying to walk into it, although the results would have probably been a bit embarrassing... Nicole Kidman would have actually made a pretty good White Witch...
