I would argue they strip out Lewis' Christian theme and insert, in its
place, this weird vague "we have to wait for Aslan" concept without
ever following Him in the first place and ultimately sending Lucy to
'fetch' Him...! *sheesh*
I also really object to the idea that children have to have a certain
level of adrenaline-inducing pacing - this is ultimately not healthy.
And it bodes REALLY BADLY for Voyage of the Dawn Treader-- yikes!

structural changes were a considerable improvement, and that the
pacing may be more child-friendly, I can only partially support the
statement that "the film keeps the Christian themes," since large
chunks of the most Christian-themed scenes were removed. In fact, the
wholly-invented storming-the-castle sequence contains a scene that
seems actually antithetical to the mood and morality of Lewis's original.
