The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe

We saw Chronicles of Narnia: the Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe last Saturday. Quick review: Good. Go see it. Excellent scenery and CGI graphics. It didn’t depart very much from the book, which we appreciated (although there were a few supporting characters that were entirely new). Good flick.

However, this post concerns accents and possible subtext.

The actors were all English, or at least did a credible english accent, with one glaring exception. The Wolf who was the Queen of Narnia’s secret police enforcer had an American accent.

Coincidence? Possibly. Subliminal subtext? You make the call!
