Liam Neeson: More About Aslan’s Meaning in a Beliefnet Interview

Check out this video of an exclusive Beliefnet interview with Liam Neeson. Very interesting!

Here’s what Neeson has to say about Aslan and his meaning:

Question: What is the takeway message with Aslan from the movies?

Neeson: “I don’t like using the word “message.” But, I mean, he stands for, you know, if one is a Christian, he’s a Christ-like figure. He’s also Muhammad. He’s also Buddha, you know, if we’re talking about the great religions in the world. He’s a great prophet but he’s also a mentor, and he’s kind of a guardian angel for these kids. And he’s the voice of reason. And he gets them, the children, to confront who they are as human beings and to take responsibility for the decision they make. . . . And he’s more, of course.”

  • Ray

    Let’s figure out 29 different ways to appeal to EVERY constituency out there…part and parcel of doing an interview these days, I suppose. However, one thing he said was really good: “…and to take responsibility for the decisions they make.” I liked that.
