How fun is this?!
From local DC blog DCist:
Time to get jealous, people: Georgie Henley and Skandar Keynes, who I’m informed are actors in “The Chronicles of Narnia” series of films, not only got to hang out with the National Zoo’s lion cubs — but they also got to name one of them. One of the 10-week old cubs will now be dubbed Aslan, after the eponymous lion in C.S. Lewis’ Narnia series.
Aslan is coming … Christmas is coming!
This reminds me, the Chronicles of Narnia, particularly The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe, makes for a great present!
Update: Stephen Greydanus has posted his review of the latest movie in this series, The Voyage of the Dawn Treader, which hits theaters this weekend. The book is a quick read if you want to fit it in before attending a showing.
Update 2: This is too funny: “Richard Wolffe makes fun of Sarah Palin for reading C.S. Lewis for ‘divine inspiration.'”
