Warning: **Unmarked Spoilers**
Wow, how did Georgie Henley get to be so grown up?? Like, she used to be tiny. I still like her, though. :D
Throughout most of the movie, she struggled with vanity and discontent, all culminating in her reading the spell to "beautify" herself, and in so doing debunking the subtle, but popular "looks are everything" Hollywood theme displayed in many movies.
"When you grow up you should be just like you."
Edmund transitions nicely from the rebel in The Lion, the Witch, and The Wardrobe to a caring older brother/friend to Lucy and Eustace. You can see him wrestling with disgust for Eustace, but he's quick to forgive and encourage him after the dragon-transformation.
Intake Officer: "Are you sure you're eighteen?"
Edmund: "Why? Do I look older?"
Eustace is like TLTW-Edmund with a twist. In The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe, Edmund's older siblings(particularly Peter) undermine his maturity while lavishing Lucy with inordinate attention, leading to his jealousy and rebellious tendencies. On the other hand, Eustace is an only child, who's awkward and proud among other children, resenting his cousins' presence. When Lucy and Edmund accidentally drag him into the "make-believe" fairy world, he's both terrified and unimpressed at once. I felt for his bewilderment and fish-out-of-water experiences yet welcomed his dragon-transformation, all the same.
"The only consolation is everyone is finally as miserable as I am. Except for that show-off talking rat. He's one of those annoying 'glass is always half-full' types."
Honestly, not much to say about him. He's probably my least favorite of the major characters. Bit underdeveloped, in my unexperienced opinion.
I did enjoy watching the subtle(or, not) character clashes between Edmund and him.
^^Wrong movie, sorry.

So who are your favorite characters? What are your thoughts on Caspian?
Thank you so much for reading! Next, I'll post a list of my favorite quotes from C. S. Lewis.
