The twelve chapters of the book cover Narnia's contemporary film journey through several perspectives including directing, writing, producing, marketing and financing. In the middle of the book is a thorough analysis of C.S. Lewis's theology, why evangelicals appreciate his work, and the role his theology plays in the Narnian tales.
Surprisingly, there are no interviews in the book, only quotes from published sources. Given the timed release with The Voyage of the Dawn Treader, I expected more coverage on Prince Caspian and The Dawn Treader, the breakup between Disney and Walden Media, and Fox's involvement with the series. However, the last two films only comprise the last 20 pages of the book.
Fans that have enjoyed seeing the series come to life on the silver screen will enjoy the comprehensive account offered by Mark Joseph in The Lion, The Professor, and the Movies. Those not thoroughly familiar with how films are made will be especially fascinated by the book, in addition to the dramatic narrative the Narnian journey to film has formed.
