Skip to comments.Latest Narnia News - Exciting Pictures and interviews (Potentially spoiler images)
Posted on 08/31/2005 6:29:35 AM PDT by DaveLoneRanger
Today, those of us looking forward eagerly to the release of Disney/Walden Media's The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe have only a mere one hundred days left to anticipate.
I have been neglectful of posting news items about the movie, but anyone who cared to would have gone to the website already anyway. Nevertheless, here's a brief rundown. ***WARNING*** Potentially spoiling images below.
Those of you who have been visiting movie theaters might have noticed, promotional standees have been popping up in several theaters. If you have one near you, snap a picture and send it to Narniaweb.com, you might get it published.
We had a good report from the set of the Stone Table filed by Tehanu, where he (she?) talks all about visiting the set, and seeing Aslan on the Stone Table. Click here to read.
Although we have not yet arrived at September yet, Narniawebbers got the exclusive on the UK's Total Film September issue, which features Tilda Swinton's haunting image of the White Witch. The article also includes quotes from the script.
The Sci-fi channel also interviewed Tilda Swinton. Click here to read.
Bob Siemon Designs announced plans to release a new collection of inspirational jewelry based on The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe.
Then Cinima Confidential interviewed Anna Popplewell (Susan) and soon after, William Moseley (Peter).
IGN chimed in with their own interviews with the two, then ComingSoon.net posted their interview with William Moseley.
A German website Die Chroniken Von Narnia (any German speakers here??) has been featuring many exciting new images, some of which I post below.
The Faun Tumnus, returns Lucy's handkerchief.
Production shot. Fans speculate that Peter uses his sword to cut off a chunk of ice to escape pursuing wolves.
Narniaweb will not host images, but click to see an exciting picture of Edmund facing Aslan.
Lucy steps into Narnia
Lucy and Tumnus's first meeting
Edmund follows his sister into Narnia one evening (note the pajamas) and meets the unearthly "Queen"...
And meets back up with Lucy under the gentle glow of the Lamppost. (Note, both in pajamas)
Later, fate seems to chase all four brothers and sisters...
Into the Wardrobe...
And into Narnia...
Where they soon meet the greatest of all Lions, Aslan Himself.
By the way folks, thanks so some inside connections, I have seen a few things that I'm unfortunately not able to share with you, but it makes me anticipate the film all the more! I really think it's going to be awesome!
Is the film going to be PG or PG-13? I hope the former.
Red x's here.
From the post it appears to be red x-rated.
LWW was unquestionably written first. MN unquestionably comes first in Narnia time. Sort of like Revenge of the Sith and Star Wars.
I am ashamed to admit that I have not (yet) read the books. However, being a HUGE fan of Lord of the Rings, and having read the LOTR books several times before the movies were made, I can understand how much you are anticipating seeing the Chronicles of Narnia on the big screen. Not kooky at all, as far as I'm concerned! My husband and I are going to see it. (Very rare for us to go to a movie these days!) I'll be interested to hear, from Narnia fans, how the movie compares to the book.
I have read somewhere, IIRC it was some correspondence from Lewis, that his intent was for MN, although written later, to be read first....
magicians nephew is chronologicly the first book (tells the story of the beginning of both narnia and where the professor gets the wardrobe) but it was the sixth published.
the chronicles time line:
magicians nephew (6)
lion witch wardrobe (1)
horse and his boy (5) (occurs in the same time as LWW)
price caspian (2)
voyage of the dawn treader (3)
silver chair (4)
last battle (5)
My advice: read them in publication order, not "chronological" order.
Your pictures are are not showing up , just red X's
Hey, folks.....don't forget! There's a new WALLACE AND GROMIT feature coming out in October. Cracking good news, eh Chuck?
Have you seen the BBC production?
You can rent it at Blockbuster. I dunno if Beeb did the whole series, but I saw 2 or 3 different titles. Rented LWW and thought it was kinda cheesy. But only because of the limitations of the budget- it seemed faithful to the story.
Can't remember what it's called - something about 'attack of the were-rabbit'? I saw "Chicken Run" Hilarious! Looking forward to this one too. (I guess I'll be making TWO rare trips to the movie theater!)
I always pictured Lucy being a few years older.
I think it's about a mystery vegetable thief at the local fair.
Those images aren't showing. Could you possibly post the links? I'd like to see them.
