breaking the spell of the white witch

Just learned that Walden Media does hold the rights to all seven of the books in C.S. Lewis' Chronicles of Narnia, and plans to film them all. The trailer for The Lion, The Witch, and The Wardrobe had me hopping around in my seat at the Potsdamer Platz multiplex; it looks like the girls are the strong characters Lewis wrote them as in this adaptation. And just in time for my birthday! How awesome is that?

Yes, I have re-read the Chronicles recently. Yes, the Christian subtext is even thicker than I remember. But come on, it's Narnia. And they're using a real lion and everything.
