I recently read a very short blurb in the local paper that five of the seven Chronicles of Narnia books are scheduled to be made into live action movies, starting with "The Lion, The Witch, and The Wardrobe". And I guess they are to be filmed in New Zealand. I was very excited to hear this news as I have read the Chronicles at least three times in my lifetime and always thought they would make for wonderful movies. Has anyone heard any more details, such as when the first movie is due to be released ? Also wondering what people think about the potential for these movies... as big as Harry Potter or perhaps even LOTRs ?
