      Narnia Invaded

      How the New Films Subvert Lewis’s Hierarchical World

      by Steven D. Boyer

      As everyone knows, two Hollywood productions of recent years bear the titles
      of two of C. S. Lewis’s famous stories from The Chronicles of Narnia: The
      Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe and Prince Caspian. The third installment in
      the series, The Voyage of the Dawn Treader, is scheduled for release this
      December, with The Silver Chair slated for 2011.

      Many Christians are very excited about these developments, believing (quite
      rightly) that Lewis’s stories are shot through with deeply Christian
      imaginative themes. What can be wrong with disseminating the stories more
      widely in this way? The answer is: Absolutely nothing—so long as it really is
      Lewis’s stories being disseminated. But there’s the rub. A thoughtful
      investigation suggests that the Narnia films are very far from being a
      faithful representation of Lewis’s own Christian vision of reality.
