It's unfair to characterize it as Lord of the Rings-Light, but it's difficult to avoid that conclusion after watching this earnest but seriously under-inspired effort.
To a layperson, this explanation is something that would possibly work, but to those who've read both the Narnia series and LOTR and the background on both stories it falls flat.
It's safe to say that while Tolkein did have 'some' overtones of his belief in his story, he wrote a narrative that weaved a full and complex set of stories that worked as a completely different look to his belief, while Lewis chopped and changed several names and places from his belief structure and used it's narrative to make a story.
There is 'nothing' similar between the stories, so please don't use pieces like LOTR to say Narnia is anything like it.
