The Silver Chair…and Reboot?

A few days ago it was revealed that The Silver Chair will be made…but it will be a complete reboot of the series. Brand new.

I read at least one article that said it was ridiculous to call this a reboot considering the series is picking up exactly where it left off. And in The Silver Chair the only character who would be continuing on is Eustace, so there would have to be a whole new cast anyway. Which, this is a pity because the actor who played Eustace in Voyage of the Dawn Treader absolutely nailed the character. I would be pleasantly surprised if they could find a kid who would do as good of a job, but it has been over five years, and that actor probably would be too old now.

I am not holding my breath that this movie will come to be. But here is where my concern is. From the articles I’ve read, it gives the appearance that the reason they are pushing for calling this a reboot is to distance themselves from the original three movies. ‘Look! We’re new! And exciting! We’re totally different.’ Any series has it’s flaws, but the feel of those movies, especially The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe was so *right* that I would be sad if they purposely tried to go a different direction. Or a ‘darker and edgier’ direction just to be different.

The Silver Chair has some dark scenes. (No pun intended) And you could make a movie that would scare little kids if you just followed the book even without giving it a Hobbit treatment. But it also has one of the best scenes in the whole series with Puddleglum declaring how the world is better than anything the Lady of Green Kirtle could come up with. In the feel of the previous three movies? I think they’d do that scene justice. I just hope that in an effort to be ‘new’ they don’t skip the magic.

Book Release: Dragon and Priest

DAP digi coverwordpress

 

Amazon Kindle $2.99

My first book since 2007 is now available.

Before I get all nostalgic, look at the pretty cover that Annie J Designs made for me! Both Worlds Collide: A Fairy Tale and Lost and Found: A Fairy Tale will be re-released this year with new designed covers by Annie. There is also one more book in my Fairy Tale series that will definitely be released this year, hopefully two books. The plan is for two. But definitely one, because that one is already done and written.

But back to Dragon and Priest. Ahh. If you were around me around February 2014, I probably apologized to you for being a bad friend because this story demanded most of my attention. I was in the middle of working on the last Fairy Tale book and this little story came out of nowhere and insisted on being first. And it is a little story, it wouldn’t even win me NaNoWriMo.

We can never sin so bad, mess up so bad, be so bad to mess up God’s plan. Or to make us unforgivable. That just is mindblowing, and equally mindblowing is that God does not force us to accept His forgiveness. We have the chance to accept the gift of forgiveness. And not everyone does.

Thank you to those of you who have already read my little story and for your support. And thank you to any new readers.
