FINALLY! It's here, it's here, it's here!!!

Need I say more?

I first started reading this series when I was 4 and have read the whole Narnia series almost every year since then. I have been waiting for this day ever since I heard it was being filmed. This is the pinacle in movies for me. The ONLY reason I'm not watching it at 11:59 tonight, well ok, there are three reasons, is #1 I'm fighting a nasty sinus infection - again...for the third time in 5 weeks (I'm the queen of the sinus infections. SIGH!), #2 it's going to be around 24 by then and I'm not going to wait in the cold while I'm sick (yes, some diehard rabid fans would call me a coward, but I plan to enjoy the movie, not suffer through it with a ragins sinus headache and feeling worse b/c of the weather) and #3 I have to go to work tomorrow.

Emily and I are going to see it at the first showing here in town on Saturday morning, that is if we're both feeling better. She is so excited about it and asks me every night if it is Saturday yet! I can't wait to take her to this movie. I'm already reading the stories to her at night and she just loves them. I can't tell who is more excited to see this version of the LWW, Emily or myself.

How many of you plan on seeing it and is it because you want to or because your kids, siblings, grandkids, etc. are making you go?

Hi Nic: I have Dial Up (sigh) and yur picture startted to open the vanished. I'm sure if yu'rre posting it, it is a good movie and Disney hasa disappointed me in recennt years with sme of the projects they took on. I was also meaning to tell you how awesome your Profile is! Very cool. I read it. There's an old movie house here that sells carmel popcorn! Hey, Warm cider and bed rest. Feel better!

Have a great weekend!

Nic... I've been lax.. it's been far too long since I've stopped by!!

I see you've been very busy, the place looks great!

As always we'll wait for it to hit DVD... But I have to admit it looks to be a good tale.

Taking my granddaughter this week.. Can't wait! I didn't read the books till I was in college, but I loved them!

I'm gonna take my kids to see it, as soon as some of the crowds thin out. I read the series as a child, and it's been a favorite of mine since.

I'm going! Can't wait. Will take the kids too if I can....if not, then DVD purchase it is. I love these books as well. I hope the movie lives up to our expectations!

Can't wait. I only hope they don't water down the obvious Christian imagery and make Aslan into some kind of Disney Lion King.

Hope you like it, Nic. It has had good reviews.

I love the Chronicles of Narnia! Like you, I have read these almost every year since I was a little girl. They are the most beautiful stories and I learned so much from them.
