Whenever I hear a book that I love is being made into a movie, though, I immediately get anxious as to what the end result will be. Will the characters be the same? What if the writers take liberties with the plot? Will the book’s themes remain intact?
Recently the movie trailer for one of my favorite books came out. I stayed up ‘til Midnight with our very own Jill Williamson to watch it (I was giddy and she was nearly drooling on her keyboard).
After watching the trailer I got really excited to see the movie. If left me with a sense of wonder and adventure, which is exactly what the book left me with. The only thing that put a damper on my enthusiasm was the addition of the two older Pevensie children at the end, because they weren’t in the book. I’ll reserve my opinions, though.
We’ll find out if the movie is faithful to the book on December 10th, when The Chronicles of Narnia: The Voyage of the Dawn Treader is released in theaters nationwide in 2-D and 3-D.
What do you think of books being turned into movies? Do you usually like the outcome? Let me know in the comments!
