I still think this was the best version [Sep. 17th, 2010|09:55 pm]

I stumbled on all this while looking for something totally unrelated (doing a book outline, oddly): a montage from the old BBC 'Chronicles of Narnia'. The music is infinitely better than the Disney version. Not sure how it would stand up now, but it had the genuine sense of magic that the new ones sadly lack.




That Geoffrey Burgon could write a tune... (thought I think this not the original). Ah, the days when ITV (well Granada) could do drama --and kick the BBC's ass.

Oooh, this brings back so many memories... I've seen both recently, and the BBC is the better version (though the CGI is sadly not up to par with the Disney version, making some of the scenes a little hard to suspend disbelief for). But it's definitely got that sense of earnestness and magic that was lacking from the Disney version.
