Blue-Carpet Premier Broadcast on Web

Posted December 7, 2005 10:11 am by Tirian

Disney provided a live web feed of the Narnia world premier festivities. You were able to watch live feeds online of the guests arriving at the premier at the Royal Albert Hall in London. Unfortunately the feeds started about 40 minutes late and were intermittent – sometimes just showing wide shots of the Royal Albert Hall or playing featurettes.

In a NarniaWeb exclusive, we were able to record the webcast event and have some great video snippets for you. Click below for the five-minute clip from the blue carpet:

If you would like to share in the action and spectacle at the World Premiere and Royal Film Performance of “The Chronicles Of Narnia: The Lion, The Witch And The Wardrobe” at the Royal Albert Hall later today, read on……

Disney have made covered grandstand seating available for a large number of spectators. The grandstands are situated overlooking the “ice-blue” carpet for a great view of the stars, the filmmakers and the Royal arrivals from 5.15 to 6.30pm today. The grandstands open to the public from 4.30pm, but to guarantee a place, you can turn up anytime from 8am to pick up a wristband which will save your place!
