NarniaShrek 2 director Andrew Adamson says that he is determined to stay as true to author C.S. Lewis'sChronicles of Narnia book The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe as possible. He says that he was terrified when producers Walden Media and Disney approached him to direct, as he feared there would be some major studio tinkering going on. "The books were very important to me as child," he notes. "I was worried they'd try to modernize it. When I finally agreed to meet them they said they wanted to be really faithful, too." This is good news, considering that many Narnia fans like myself were fearing Disney might add excessive jokes featuring boogers and farts, giant smart-talking robot villains and a soundtrack by Hilary Duff. The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe opens in theaters in the U.S. on December 9, 2005.
