      Two words: Eustace. Dragon. That's enough for me.

          The first was certainly a magical movie - although the second had a far too whiny tone for my taste. Still, it is a nice, gentle high-fantasy and I am glad they are making another one. It would be a pity to begin something as epic as the Chronicles of Narnia, only to have it fade away after only two attempts.

          All they need to do is stop trying so hard to make it like Middle Earth or Harry Potter - it is Narnia, allow it to be itself.

            Awesome. The first two were great movies, I'm looking forward to this one. Also, I agree with Shelley and ComradeHenson... Glad it's still going to happen.

                  I agree with Comrade, glad it is still happening. I thought it had already been written, but I guess I was wrong.

                      Kind of nice to hear that this is still happening. Disney gave up on it when it showed it couldn't defeat Harry Potter.
