I just read that in Dutch cinema's 2 versions of the Narnia film will be 
showed. This is not uncommon with foreign childeren films. One version 
will be in it original language and subtitled (as is common over here) 
and a dubbed version, usually for the younger audiance. But generally 
there is no conscience effort made to change the dubbed version in any 
other way than the translation.
For Narnia they have done the latter. The script is rewritten in such a 
way that with the same images the film can be judged suitable for a 
younger age group. The English&subtitled version is aproved for  12+ and 
the Dutch-dubbed version is for 6+. I find this weird!!!!!
