Maybe so, however I stand by saying this book to movie translation was
more true to the book than most along this line.

How can you not take that from the story itself? Aslan was the
"creator" of Narnia. He sacrificed himself as a blameless sacrifice
to save the "tratoir"

Because many in the world will get thinking over the idea. No Aslan
is not Christ.
However the idea that there will be non'belivers seeing it and with
all the hype about it being a Christian story, the will hear the good
news. These same people would not be likely to pick up a Bible
without some prompting.......
