    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.

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