What if? One wardrobe could open a new world…

Late this evening (or early this morning – I haven’t gone to bed yet for some reason); I felt the need to look up things related to Narnia. Why, I have no clue, but I don’t mind taking a stroll down memory lane. Besides, I really liked the Chronicle of Narnia series.

On my digital trek down memory lane, I stumbled upon La Shawn Barber’s post featuring the Third installment of Narnia.

Wait, wha….? Ok, what rock have I been hiding under? For goodness sakes, I’ve only seen the first installment! Apparently, The Chronicles of Narnia: The Voyage of the Dawn Treader marks the third installment in the Chronicles of Narnia series.

Talk about excited…
That simple post, instantly transported me to my childhood days when I stumbled upon a book by C.S. Lewis. That book was The Lion, The Witch, and The Wardrobe. I was about seven (or perhaps eight) when I read it. Which happened to be the second installment within the series. I didn’t read the entire series until I was in my 30’s.

I was raised Christian, and in my mind I saw some similarities with the Christian faith. Aslan the Lion sacrifices his life to save Edmund. Christ sacrifices himself to save the world from their sins. That right there, made the Bible a little more interesting.

As I read through the book, I would rush to the Bible to see whether I could find any other similarities. No, it wasn’t as obvious at Pilgrim’s Progress by John Bunyan but they were still there! What am I doing now? Why, I’m rounding up the entire series to see whether my seven-year old daughter is interested in reading them. She was three when I read The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe to her. When she was five, she saw the movie too. She absolutely adored it!

My only question…
Will my daughter like the new installment? Ok, we have some time, it doesn’t hit the theaters until December 10, 2010. All right that gives us plenty of time to watch the second installment and perhaps brush up on the first one too. Hmm, might be a good idea to reintroduce some of the books to her also. If she likes them, I know what we’ll be seeing at the movie theater this December!

    Both my husband and I had the boxed set when we met and then both our boys red them! We love Narnia. We also have enjoyed both movies so far. They have come a long way from the PBS version I saw when I was a young girl…I rented a copy and showed it to my kids one evening just so they could see the difference.

    @Maira Grove – Oh, they have a PBS version? I really need to check that out. I’ve only seen the newer ones. 🙂
