Forecast: Narnia Movie Will be Huge

Peter. Lucy. The White Witch. Aslan. All of the delightful characters will be on board for the first movie in the Narnia series, The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe. The movie opens Dec. 9th and, from the looks of the previews, seems to be very well done and an accurate portrayal of the book. This movie, having some very obvious biblical metaphors, will be the second hit christian movie to come out in the last couple years (The Passion of the Christ being the first) that seek to show the power and money available to christian media. Be sure to check this flick out opening weekend in order to boost the box office score. If the movie is half as good as the books, we are all in for an amazing ride.

I am geeked about the Narnia movie too. This is somewhat of a tangent but I would to get some thoughts on Lord of the Rings and Harry Potter. Harry Potter has been viewed in a very negative light by Christians. I am not sure what I think about Harry Potter. I think I am leaning towards the idea that it is a bad thing. Let me explain. I heard from someone that he was in a local Barnes and Noble and he saw a Harry Potter book and immediately to the right was a book on Witchcraft. If that is true, wow! O course, this all from second hand source so it could just urban legendish. This event alone has convinced me most that Harry Potter is a bad thing. I had a very neutral opinion before. The point of all this is that I want ask this question: "If Christians view Harry Potter in such a bad light because of it's associations with magic, why is it that they don't see movies like Lord of the Rings (which has a magic using protagonist: Gandalf) and Chronicles of Narnia (in which Aslan refers to 'a deeper magic' at work when he rises from the dead) as a bad thing?" Your thoughts...
