Narnia Trailer Subtlety

I just saw a trailer for the new film version of C. S. Lewis's The Lion, The Witch, and The Wardrobe. During the setup of the Professor's house, where the children find the Wardrobe, these words appear alone on the screen:


This is a near-quotation of John 14:2, which is rendered in more than one translation as "In my Father's house there are many rooms" (although "...many mansions" may be more familiar, as it's in the KJV). To the extent that this refers to there being many ways to come to God, it perfectly mirrors Lewis's own intent in creating Aslan the lion as Jesus incarnated for Narnia. A nice touch.
