Book Vs Movie
The Lion, The With & The Wardrobe
The fantastical tale is the subject of this fantastical episode
The Margos travel to Narnia and back to bring you the story about fascinating author C.S. Lewis and his classic children’s tales that make up The Chronicles of Narnia. Lewis, an Irishman who attended schools in England, went from being an avowed atheist to a proponent of Christianity and he used his stories based on Pevensie children as the basis of having people understanding the power of Jesus.
It all begins with the 1950 publication of The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe which tells the tale of Lucy, Peter, Edmund, and Susan who are living in England during World War 2. One day they find a mysterious wardrobe and travel to the land of Narnia where they are known as the “sons of Adam” and “daughters of Eve” and animals can talk just like humans.
The White Witch is in charge of Narnia and she keeps everyone in perpetual winter (and never Christmas! Aslan the lion is her nemesis. The Christian allegories write themselves in this very entertaining tale.
The movie directed by Andrew Adamson stars interesting character actors Tilda Swinton, James McAvoy, and Jim Broadbent and has an immense (supposed) $180 million budget and the special effects are next-level great.
