Puddleglee, I wholeheartedly agree. I was thinking about the books v.s the movies the other day. I like both separate of each other, I will be buying PC when it comes out. I am just hoping that some of my favorite scenes will be in the movie. (VDT)

It has to be so much harder with VODT because of how many scenes are in the book. It almost seems like trying to put Homer into a two hour flick. It has to be an incredibly difficult task! I also have many scenes I want in the movie as well but I wonder how we temper those desires to accept the excitement of finally having a legit VODT film that will be well done and most likely have a great story!

Given the focus on the supposed love story in PC I do wonder how much that will be magnified in this story. Also has anyone else heard about Trumpkin being put on the ship? How are they going to have Aslan stripping the dragon as well. Little violent and gross reading it---cannot imagine viewing it! I hope it is there but man I will close my eyes. Which I did when reading it but obviously it did not work to well, huh! :snow-laugh:

It's obvious -- Caspian will transfer his affections to Lucy, which will not go down well with Susan after Lucy and Edmund get back, and the resulting jealousy will be instrumental in Susan's eventual dismissal of all things Narnian in LB.

…on a night of rain Frodo smelled a sweet fragrance on the air and heard the sound of singing that came over the water. And then it seemed to him that as in his dream in the house of Bombadil, the grey rain-curtain turned all to silver glass and was rolled back, and he beheld white shores and beyond them a fair green country under a swift sunrise.

You know, at first I saw the humor in your prediction...then I realized that it may not be that far off from reality. :snow-shocked:

I had the exact same reaction John. Nooooooooooooooo!

"Well," said Pooh, "what I like best -- " and then he had to stop and think. Because although Eating Honey was a very good thing to do, there was a moment just before you began to eat it which was better than when you were, but he didn't know what it was called.

Well, it's not any longer. If they have to leave a scene out for length, then I hope they choose well. But if they replace as scene with something not even in the book like they did in PC I will be thouroughly teed off. There's so much great imagery and adventure in the book, there's no need for it. But then I would have though the same of the town-entry scene in PC.

Man the thought of Lucy being a love interest of Caspian is just as bad as Janet Jackson playing the white witch. I cannot imagine disney or Michael Apted being that dumb! Interesting thought though...awfully horrendous but still interesting:snow-wink:

Do you think there going to magnify Caspian's romance with Ramandu's daughter (will she have a name?) and insert her like Arwen was for Aragorn in LOTR? It made Aragorn even more heroic having her kind of telepathically speaking to him. (at least implied)

Also-if they do not have Aslan appear as the lamb at the end I will be greatly disappointed!

I watched the little clip of him in Son of Ranbow and I think he will be a good Eustace. It's funny because I was thinking not 4 hours before I read that Eustace has been found, "I hope they do a good job casting Eustace." He really has to be the perfect blend of obnoxious and sweet. I think this kid has the right look too, very real, normal looking boy.

I think an actor in the role Eustace was chosen very well.
I am sure that this boy is perfect to play its role!

Sorry if I came across a bit sharp! I'm sure there will be lots of great scenes from the book - as someone else pointed out, VDT is a great adventure story with so many different things happening. At the very least, they'll have to show the fates of the 7 lords, since finding them is the point of the voyage. This might mean the Monopods not making a showing, which would be a shame because the Spell for the Refreshment of the Soul is a favourite part of mine. Still, I think we're agreed it will be a great film in its own right :snow-toothy:

I suppose they might reduce the number of Lords in order to save time. I remember when the movie Three Days of the Condor came out and being upset because I'd read the book which was Six Days of the Condor.

OMG! how could they not have the monopods? They're hilarious. Don't even suggest a thing. :snow-sealed:

Somehow if they did not have Aslan dancing with the children in PC I do not know if they will have the monopods. Although, if you think about it, I cannot see that entire scene not being in the movie. Neither will the deathwater or Eustace/dragon be cut out. Maybe it won't be cut but just severely edited? I don't know...which is worse?

Nomad you made me laugh :lol:


I have put VDT on the back burner for a bit, just so I don't wake up disappointed every day.....bah! Why MUST it take so long though? I know, I know....I want them to get it right, but seriously, they really should have had things lined up for the entire series. They need to put me on the job and I will get things moving along quickly! :wink: I don't want to be 45 years old before I get to see all the movies. There is nothing wrong with that age, but I am impatient and would like to have them finished before I have grandchildren thank you kindly! :brood:

I am however grateful of the care that is being taken to get this stuff right.....I read then watched Twilight...wow, they hacked that movie up badly. We had a little party to watch it when it came out on video, and three of the 6 girls/women hadn't read the book and were so lost because of the terrible edit job that was done...and the author was there for so much of it's creation. oy.
So, to whom it may concern.....PLEASE take care with VDT and the rest of the books, I believe it was Keats who asks us to tread lightly because we tread on his dreams.....please, do tread lightly.

I also want all the movies filmed soon.
But now the economic crisis, it is possible that at the shooting did not have enough money.

Actually, they're probably going to be starting filming soon, and it would appear to be most likely on the Gold Coast, Queensland, here in Australia. So don't let the economic situation make you think the movies aren't continuing. :wink:
