Live from London: Gresham on Policing Narnia
Mark Sommer

An article on NarniaWeb.com alerted me to an interview with Douglas Gresham published today on the online version of Christianity Today. "glumPuddle" does a great job of commenting on a couple points Gresham makes about Dragon Eustace in the upcoming Dawn Treader movie and the Capsian/Susan kiss in Prince Caspian.
...Gresham was not denying that DragonEustace fights a sea-serpent. Rather, he was saying that the idea of Eustace earning his redemption was removed from the film.

As much as I DESPISE the kiss and think it totally flies in the face of everything Lewis was trying to do thematically with Prince Caspian&ellips; I think Gresham made the right call to allow it. It seems like he made his opinions on the kiss very clear but Adamson really wanted it. You can't hire a director and then start telling him what he can't do. That's creatively asphyxiating. The key is to hire a director you trust and then let him do what he wants to do.
I am gaining a new appreciation of Mr. Gresham and the difficult position he is in as the (as he puts it in the interview) "Narnia Policeman." To read the Christianity Today article, click here.
