Christian author C.S. Lewis wrote the Chronicles of Narnia, a series of fantasy Christian books intended for children. The books have remained popular. A series of movies has brought the magic on the screen. Because C.S. Lewis is a noted Christian author, Christian symbolism is found in both the books and the movies. The movies have toned down the Christian symbolism to appeal to a larger audience, but even non-Christian readers have not minded who Aslan most obviously represents.
If we focus on the Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe, we can find two parallels between Aslan and the figure of Christ. The first is that he fulfills the same role in Narnia as the central figure of Christianity does in the real world. The second occurs when he agrees to let the witch sacrifice him. When the sacrifice is over, one of the heroes pours a gift from Santa Claus which will heal any wound. The potion does not work, but a few minutes later, Aslan gets back up. He tells the children who were crying over him that the witch does not know what sacrifice meant. When the time comes for the children to return to their world, he says his farewells. He does not say, as he does in the book, that there they can get to know Him in their own world.
