The first official teaser for The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian debuts tonight. Link will be posted at approximately 10:30 PM EST on NarniaWeb.com!
A young man in my work center believed that “The Golden Compass” was the next Narnia movie. I tried to set him straight.

My daughter approves. She is putting the Prince Caspian CD in her player to listen to as she goes to bed.
There’s a Prince Caspian cd already?
Probably just the Radio Theater dramatic audio version.
Thank you for reminding us about the teaser... It looks awesome!

Nikabrik tries to call her up in a secret coucil with Caspian, since blowing Susan's magic horn apparently has not worked.
The council is held in a hill which contains the Stone Table on which Aslan was killed so long ago.
Caspian calls him out on it, identifying his companions as a hag and a werewolf.
A fight to the death begins, and Peter, Edmund, and the DLF (Trumpkin) arrive just then to kill the bad guys...
Please re-read the book. Again and Again!
watch the old BBC version, when nikabrik tries calling her up, she briefly appears.
Amazing that C S Lewis and Philip Pullman are now duking it out cinematically, one episode after another, to capture the religious amagination of the Children of the West. Like Gandalf vs Saruman, somehow. Salvation history is certainly an "epic battle"; and we're in it --- we and our children, right now ---- up to our necks.
I have to admit that I haven't picked up the rest of the books yet (I was hoping they'd be in my stocking last year ... and then I put them on the back burner), but I'm hazarding a guess . . .
Considering that she was great in the first film, I can see the producers looking to find a way to sneak her in to a second one to add a little excitement (and money). The problem is that if they find a way to bring her back, they have to find a way to get rid of her again so that she can't get brought back.
I don't like tampering when you're trying to do "faithful" adaptions.
I’m intimately familiar with the details of the book. She never actually appears...and it’s actually the hag and werewolf that are really pushing the idea.
The part in the movie where an image of her appears and is reaching out to a seemingly-enchanted Caspian is a little weird.
Actually, the same actress played the hag. The witch never appeared, but the werewolf (same actor, same costume as Maugrim in the first BBC film) kind of draws this little blue fire circle in the air.
I would think the expense of hiring Tilda Swinton again, and going through the makeup process again (including making her do whatever horrid things she had to do to her hair for the role in LWW) just for that cameo would not be worth it. I’m guessing whatever they did was digital. She (Tilda) is not currently credited with an appearance in the movie.
Whatever her appearance, it won’t be a problem getting rid of her. The trailer itself virtually answers the question for us. The icy image shatters somehow. They try to make you think Susan lobs an arrow to break it, but the arrow-throwing shot was from the castle raid.
hrm.. now i’m gonna have to watch that again. i thought they put in a quick picture of her.
Woo! Can’t wait!
The Caspian / Golden Compass smackdown is AWN!!!
In the trailer or the BBC film? I know she didn’t show up in the BBC adaptation.
