Thanks to C. S. Lewis scholar Devin Brown, professor of English at Asbury College, for bringing this interview to my attention. As you probably know, Walden Media has produced the Narnia movies (including the forthcoming Voyage of the Dawn Treader) as well as great films like Amazing Grace and Charlotte’s Web.
Last spring Micheal Flaherty, President of Walden Media, visited Asbury College as part of its Engaging Culture weekend. As those who have met him know, he is a truly great man–full of wisdom, enthusiasm, real joy, and deep compassion.
While he was on campus, Devin Brown had the opportunity to ask him about Walden’s mission, where its name came from, and even what his favorite scene [in the first Narnia film] is. His responses to these and other questions can be viewed here.
