I had a post about the Mrs. Piggle-Wiggle books all set to publish this morning (with an aside about why are movies rarely as good as the book version?), when I happened upon the first sneak peek trailer of The Voyage of the Dawn Treader, the third of the Chronicles of Narnia brought to life.
I discovered the trailer at Melissa Wiley’s excellent blog, often a source for great family-friendly fiction. (She herself is author of the Martha and Charlotte books in the Little House series. )
Are you excited to see the newest Narnian adventure? Do you think it will be as good as the book?
I’m not hoping for that–nothing could really match any of the Narnia Chronicles–but I do hope it is better than Prince Caspian movie version, which strayed so far from the book as to be almost unrecognizable. We still enjoyed Prince Caspian at our house, and I consider it a “Narnian” movie, but was frustrated by how much is changed. I hope that don’t do that for Voyage of the Dawn Treader. There’s so much good story there the filmmakers don’t need to change a thing. I admire greatly Michael Apted, director of Voyage of the Dawn Treader, for his excellent Amazing Grace and the moving and groundbreaking “Up” series“Up” following the lives of a group of English people every seven years. So I have to confess I have pretty high hopes for this one.
