Into the wardrobe we go...

For those excited about the new Narnia movie, you might enjoy this article from the Telegraph:

'I was sure that children would not want to be told that this old lady was Lucy'

It's the first ever interview with the girl (now "this old lady," Jill Freud) who was the inspiration for Lucy, the first of the fictional Pevensie children to enter the magical wardrobe in Lewis' now famous fantasy series, The Chronicles of Narnia. In the interview, she tells some interesting stories of the time she spent in C.S. Lewis' home as a refugee from London during WWII, as well as how she ended up marrying a grandson of Sigmund Freud!

Personally, it's gotten me all the more excited for the new movie, The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe. Unfortunately, I probably won't be seeing it until Thursday, December 15th. Too much schoolwork to do before then.

But after I watch LWW, I also plan to see King Kong ASAP this upcoming weekend in Perrysburg, for anyone that's in town and interested.

Plus, I'm somewhat interested in Munich as well. What a movie season this is turning out to be!

p.s. Discussion #2 of the Gatto book is coming later on this week, for those that are still interested. Additionally, Meggers posted on the book at her blog a week or so ago, if anyone wants to check it out.
