I wonder if Liam Neeson will still be the voice of Aslan.

If Neeson remains available, I have no doubt they'll want to bring him back for continuity. Though I would like to hear Laurence "Morpheus" Fishburne voicing the role of Aslan.

There is exactly _zero_ justification for saying that the Green Witch _was_ the White Witch. That would be a _forced_ continuity. Besides, if Jadis could come back to life after Aslan executed her, this would contradict His omnipotence as Almighty God.

I'm pretty sure Lewis wrote (in a character's voice obviously) that the Green Witch was of the same kind as Jadis, not the same person. My book is packed away otherwise I'd go look up a reference.

He most certainly DID speak of Green Kirtle Witch as being a TYPE, not as actually BEING JADIS. But this is one of those areas in which dilettantes often imagine they're cleverer than the original author. Such dilettantes would not bother to consider the point I've made, that Aslan would not be omnipotent if, having killed an evildoer, He could not make that evildoer STAY DEAD.

It's been a long time since Douglas Gresham lent me a Russian-language set of the Narnian books for me to quality-check for him; but I seem to recall that the mostly-good Russian fellow who translated them WAS one of those who wanted to MAKE the Green Witch BE Jadis.

The same translator, in "Magician's Nephew," arbitrarily made the horse/pegasus Fledge be a mare, instead of the stallion Lewis had clearly specified.

Despite reboots and new actors/actresses I'm glad at least they are still doing the series in movie form even if it is taking many years. I like seeing Narnia and anything related to it get noticed nowadays.

Weird. Fledge doesn't sound like a name for a female horse to me, though maybe the word has different connotations in Russian?
