Disney

Why is it Fox instead of Disney that has the rights to the third Narnia movie?

Disney dropped out because 'The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian' did not get enough money at the box-office to pay the studio back. According to the paper, "Prince Caspian" (second film) cost roughly $225 million with nearly $100 million spent on special effects. In addition, the studio spent as much as $175 million on worldwide marketing. So clearly, "Prince Caspian" did not turn out to be a winner for Disney.

How much time has elapsed since Creation?

Opinions from our Contributors
  • There is no way of knowing how long ago the Creation depicted in the Book of Genesis might have occurred. It is a poetic, rather than a scientific account, and in any case it is important to remember that the Bible makes no claim about the age of the Earth. The theoretical figure of some 6,000 years is modern pseudoscience, and was arrived at by counting the number of generations listed in the Bible from Adam to Jesus and assigning an arbitrary average length to them. The theory also assumes, without any proof, that the "day" of Creation was the same length as it is now.
  • If we go by what the Bible says, then the time from creation to today is approximately 6 thousand years. This is calculated by using historical markers from known historical events mentioned in the Bible and then doing calculations based on other known dates mentioned in relation to those markers. It has nothing whatsoever to do with an 'arbitrary generational age', since this would only give an approximate and not exact age. In relation to Bible chronology relating to the age of the earth a number of people have done calculations, including of all people, Sir Isaac Newton. Most come with dates close to the most highly regarded date of Bishop James Usher who arrived at 4004 BC for the date of creation. This is assuming no 'gaps' in the record, which, if they existed would only stretch the record a few thousand years at best. Most would understand that the Bible, while not claiming to be a textbook of science does indeed claim reliability in the history it records. The Bible record of history has also been repeatedly verified by external facts such as archaeology.
  • In relation to the literature of the Bible, some occasionally claim that the Bible creation accounts are poetic. This is not correct as they are written in prose form. The Hebrew poetic form being quite different as in Psalms, Proverbs and Job. These accounts are thus intended to be taken as a historical record and the days, in the context, are intended to be normal 24 hour days. Following on from this it is also clear that the days are normal 24 hour days as we have today as the relevant Hebrew word 'yom' (day) is qualified by the words 'evening and morning' which can mean only one thing.
  • The consensus of professional scientific organizations worldwide is that no scientific evidence contradicts the age of approximately 4.5 billion years.
  • If the question deals with the creation of "everything" we see, the universe as a whole, the answer is about 13.7 billion years. The earth has been around for 4.5 to 4.6 billion years.
  • All of the above answers regarding billions of years pre-supposes that the rate of the elapse of time has remained constant but there is scientific evidence that it hasn't.
  • Some believe Genesis was meant as Hebrew Poetry, not an historical account, and that each "day" of creation was actually thousands, if not millions, of years.
  • The Earth is 6,450 years old. Look in Luke and in the old Testament. There is this thing called the Baptism and Genealogy of Jesus in Luke 3:21. In the old testament is tells when people had their children. The genealogy tells from the creation of Adam to the birth of Jesus do the math, add 2 thousand years and you have 6,450 years. Also there is no record of anything before that time.
  • Jewish Answer - As of January 16, 2010 the world would be 5770 yrs and 4 months old base on the dates and ages given in the Torah (Old Testament).

What is the name of the lion from 'The Chronicles of Narnia' series?

The great lion in "The Chronicles of Narnia" is called Aslan (OZ-lan), and he is a picture of Christ, who is the Lion of the Tribe of Judah.

There are many ways to pronounce his name. One way is AZ-lan. Another is OZ-lan. But, C.S. Lewis, the actual writer of "The Chronicles of Narnia" pronounced the name Ass-lan.
The lion's name is aslan
In Narnia the lions name is Aslan

C.S. Lewis the shadow lands?

Your question is far from clear........But I will make two guesses.

1. You are referring to the movie "Shadowlands" with Anthony Hopkins and Debra Winger. It tells the lovely and tragic story of C S Lewis' marriage to Joy Gresham and it is very good - I recommend that you rent it and watch it, and look for the term shadowlands in it.

2. You are referring to a belief that underlies much of Lewis's writing. This belief comes from Plato, and in summary says that everything we see here is an imperfect "shadow" or copy of a reality in Heaven.

What is the true reading order of The Chronicles of Narnia?

Well, when you say "true reading order" it is uncertain what you mean. The way the books are published now, the books are presented chronologically, so the first part of the story, historically, happens first, and so on. The only other order you could go with as "true" (at least in my mind) is the order that C.S. Lewis actually wrote the books.

In the first scenario, you would read "The Magician's Nephew" first, and in the second, you would read "The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe" first.

C.S. Lewis himself said that it probably didn't matter in which order they were read... however, as a personal observation, I think reading them in the order in which they were written works better. I think you fail to notice story discontinuity that way, because you are going along as the author did. When you read them in the other order, it is easier to find things that don't quite match up... so, if your mind works that way, you might want to read them in the order they were written.

The actual order in which the Chronicles of Narnia were written, and originally published by MacMillan is:

  • 1950: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe
  • 1951: Prince Caspian
  • 1952: The Voyage of the Dawn Treader
  • 1953: The Silver Chair
  • 1954: The Horse and His Boy
  • 1955: The Magician's Nephew
  • 1956: The Last Battle

When Harper-Collins took over publication, Lewis's stepson Douglas Gresham recommended they be published according to Narnian chronology. Thus, the new order became:

1. The Magicians Nephew

2. The Lion the Witch and the Wardrobe

3. The Horse and His Boy

4. Prince Caspian

5. The Voyage of the Dawn Treader

6. The Silver Chair

7. The Last Battle
Four children, Peter, Susan, Edmund and Lucy are evacuated to the country in World War 2. They stay in a large house owned by an old Professor. First Lucy, then Edmund, then all four children find their way through an old wardrobe into Narnia, a magical land with talking animals and mythical creatures such as fauns and dwarves. But Narnia is held under a magical spell by the evil White Witch to ensure it's always winter but never Christmas. The children have to battle evil creatures and deal with betrayal and treachery but make many good friends as well. Finally, with the help of Aslan (The Lion) they defeat the evil witch and spring and freedom come back to Narnia.
