Kevin Wright on Prince Caspian, the movie.

Kevin Wright, of Wright off the Bat, has posted a review of the current movie version of Prince Caspian.

He notes the substantive changes from the book, and argues that some of them may actually enhance the movie's message. He also argues that C. S. Lewis, the author of the Narnia books, would have opposed some of the trappings and effects of movie-making, including those from this film, such as creating a franchise, pushing teenage stars, and merchandising.

I'm still thinking about Wright's view of the effect of the changes. He is probably correct. He is correct about the trappings and effects, I'm sure.

Thanks for reading.

I liked Jeffrey Overstreet's review, over at Looking Closer.
