Why bother adapting a book if you're just going to rewrite the plot???

Summary: I was SO looking forward to the Voyage of the Dawn Treader, and was sorely disappointed. The film felt like they took the original story, chopped it up, then threw it in a blender with seven magical swords and some ridiculous green mist! While the film stayed true to main themes of the story, much of the character development and purpose to each of the minor island stories was lost. Unfortunately this meant that most of the magic of the story was lost as well.
Summary: It's been an overdose of fantasy for me in the last few days I guess. First, in anticipation of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part I, I watched all the previous ones at a stretch. For this, I had to do a similar thing. Else how would it make any sense ??? The Narnia series, it seems, is shaping up to be the replacement of the Harry Potter series. We all know that Harry Potter is gonna be done with by the next year.
Conclusion: It seems after the disappointment at the box-office of Prince Caspian Disney dropped the ownership of the series, only for 20th Century Fox to pick up the rights, apart from that nonthing has changed to this great fantasy series. As a kid I loved the Dawn Treader book and thought it was the best of the series, but unfortunatly although faithful the magic of the book does not come fully intact to the big screen.
