The other night my wife and I went to see Narnia: The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe. I remember when I read this book when I was a kid and was all excited to hear that it was going to hit the big screen. I'd have to re-read the book again to remember how much resemblance there is to the original but as a movie it really was excellent.

The casting was superb and only after watching the movie I found out that the voice of Aslan was Liam Neeson (an actor who I've liked since Star Wars).

A couple of things that non-Turkish speaking viewers might not know, Aslan in Turkish means lion. The second point is that in one scene Aslan says to Peter that he would be hakeem of Narnia (or something thereabouts, but the word he used was hakeem), hakeem means one who will rule by seperation of right and wrong, and would be just in his/her rulings.
