In today’s Guardian, Justine Picardie is apprehensive. Why? Because Disney are gearing up for this year’s Christmas onslaught on cinema audiences with the release, scheduled for 8th December, of Jack Lewis’s The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe. Check out the excellent official movie website, there’s a trailer and other clips in there if you look closely.. in various formats. Or you could watch the trailer at the Apple site [quicktime only]. Back when the movie was announced the BBC News Online’s Greg McKevitt took a look around Belfast for evidence of inspiration. Lord of the Rings??? Pfft.. although that movie’s influence does seem evident in the trailer..

You will need to know about the comments policy to stay off the fightin’ side of me and there is a bit of background about me here.
