Perry Moore was the producer of The Chronicles of Narnia. He was 39 years old when he died Feb. 22, 2011.
Perry Moore produced all three Narnia films and also wrote an illustrated book to accompany the series opener, The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe.
The distributors planned to market the films to schools with pre-packaged classroom lessons. I wonder if they thought the famous Christian allegory in the story made it an acceptable education package.
