As for Lewis' theme, he may have been portraying some things as being absolutely bad or good to teach a moral lesson, especially for younger readers, but I don't think it's a problem that they changed that a bit in the movie. People can change from bad to good, and as I don't consider the minotaurs as animals and as sentient beings, why can they not change?
Well said, Xenithar.

When I used to play Dungeons and Dragons, my main character (named Copperfox--which was the FIRST use I ever made of the name) possessed a Lawful Good sword called Evangel, which had the power to change Evil-aligned intelligent beings into Good-aligned ones. Thus Copperfox only had to fight Evil creatures if they couldn't be changed; and he acquired a number of Gnolls and Kobolds as faithful followers. They were great spies, able to infiltrate Evil strongholds.
