Alas, its attempts to overcome the story's episodic nature are clumsy, its effects only intermittently special, and its dufflepuds not nearly funny enough.
The dufflepuds-one-legged, dunderheaded dwarfs looked after by an exiled magician-are Lewis' comic riff on Caliban.
I always assumed "small" dufflepuds would be fully-CGI, but if the characters were larger, they'd be half-and-half human/CGI, like Tumnus.
