Asbury College in Wilmore KY will be hosting Narnia Night 2008 on April 25th which will feature a super-trailer with rare footage, Clayton Ferguson with the Narnia Museum Project, and noted C.S. Lewis scholar, Devin Brown.
Free of cost and open to the general public, Narnia Night is an exciting exploration of Disney’s newest installment to its films based on C.S. Lewis’s The Chronicles of Narnia, Prince Caspian.
Hughes Memorial Auditorium will be transformed into C. S. Lewis’s magical realm of Narnia as the sequence of the evening begins.
In addition to special presentations by Lewis scholar, author, and professor, Dr. Devin Brown, unseen clips from the new film and a super-trailer, including rare footage of the making of Prince Caspian, will be shown. Furthermore, Asbury’s Hughes Auditorium will feature actors in costume, and guests may buy discounted Narnia books and t-shirts.
Clayton Ferguson will also make a special presentation from the Becker Group. The Becker Group, in partnership with Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures and Walden Media will bring C.S. Lewis’s famed literary fantasy world of “Narnia,” to worldwide audiences with “The Chronicles of Narnia: International Museum Exhibition,” a fantastical state-of-the-art educational exhibit. The massive interactive experience will premiere June 2008, to coincide with the opening of the new film, “The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian,” the second installment of the blockbuster film series based on Lewis’s beloved fictional books. Ferguson was formerly with The Anschutz Film Group and worked extensively with Asbury College in the production of the award-winning educational resource DVD for “Amazing Grace: The William Wilberforce Story” motion picture.
A limited number of discounted tickets to the national premier of Disney’s movie at a local theater will also be available. An enchanting reception will follow in the Student Center.
