confusion sets in

God bless "The Chronicles of Narnia". If you didn't like "The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe", you're obviously so gay.

But there's a problem: it seems that the movies are being made in written-order and not the more intuitive reading-order. You see, C. S. Lewis did not write the series in chronological order (and the order in which he meant them to be read). The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe, for example, is actually the second book. Granted the first book (The Magician's Nephew) would make a pretty boring movie, Walden and Disney did buy the rights to all seven books. For $10 million each. It would be a waste not to capitalize on all of them.

God, Susan is so hott. No joke!

That being said, the second "Narnia" movie, "Price Caspian", is about to begin production. The second book written, but the fourth in the series. Little Christian kids the world over are going to be so confused.

Baker's dozen!

Two Narnia-related posts in two days? We are officially the geekiest blog ever. Maybe there's a niche for that? Maybe we'll be the Narnia commentators on Best Week Ever?

not necessarily!

check out the "reading order" section in the wikipedia article, for example. i think TLTWATW works a lot better as a first book than does TMN.
