It will be interesting to see how Disney will treat Lewis's Christian themes which tend to permeate his writings.

From the article: "The tales also are infused with Christian allegory, and the heroic Aslan is meant as a Christ figure, a redeemer who resurrects in triumph. The challenge: to attract the spiritual-minded moviegoer without turning off the secular crowd."

And a quote from the studio's vice president of publicity, Dennis Rice: "We are not going to reach out to one group over the expense of another, but embrace and acknowledge the fans of a very important piece of literature."

I'm curious who they think the fans are of C.S. Lewis's work. This book is virtually a staple of every childs library who is raised in a christian home. So if the studio is true to the story when it comes to the allegorical themes pervasive within the book then am I to conclude by Mr. Rice's comments that they would be being unfair to the Muslims, Jews, Budhists, and oh let us not forget the Witches (who seem to be fairly well represented in this story).

Did anyone in Disney learn a lesson from Mel Gibson in the past couple of years?
