It's funny because since this movie came out, this is the first Tilda Swinton role I always think of. But now and throughout the ages, we have projected our neighbor as the enemy, instead of our own lack of love. As a child reading the story—or having it read to you—you are taken from an ordinary world into an extraordinary one.
The children are lucky the Queen was more of a fart-stealing Old Nick than a Miltonian Satan, otherwise they never would have stood a chance. He does not say whether Eustace will return to Narnia. After being resurrected the next morning, Aslan rises and defeats the White Witch once and for all.
As for Christians, there is not one passage in the Bible which condemns the reading of the occult — simply the practice.
He then growls at the Black Dwarfs, and makes food magically appear in their hands. Did you ever watch the original cartoon. I would've liked more time seeing their characters developed. Some readers suggest that Aslan lets the queen take over to teach the kids a lesson, but is it really worthwhile to let all the inhabitants of a kingdom suffer a century of misery just to teach a few kids about the true meaning of friendship.
Now again, this is a fairy tale so Peter ending up as King of Narnia is more something you'd have to suspend disbelief for.
Lewis does not follow traditional religious depictions of the characters he uses in his allegories, as Jesus is not generally conceived of as a lion either.

She explains to Lucy her reasons: The owls explain that Rilian disappeared while searching for the green serpent that killed his mother; they believe that he is now under the spell of an enchantress he had seen in the forest while searching for the serpent.
The movie falters in those moments where it robs the story of its purity and truth. The Witch is hated and feared throughout the land, but no one except Aslan has the power to stop her. A Narnian prophecy holds that four human children "sons of Adam and daughters of Eve" will arrive to end the White Witch's reign, and already the heroic lion Aslan is actively raising an army against the witch.
I like Lewis as much as the next guy, yet I think it's sad that so many Christians can't see the spiritual reflections in any stories but these, when so many stories, intentionally or not, are packed with symbols of spiritual sacrifice, resurrection, and redemption, and often of a much subtler and higher order than this; e.
