Disney Hosts A ‘Weekend In Narnia’

Posted May 3, 2008 8:26 pm by starkat

This weekend, the Disney Channel Movie Surfers hosted a “Weekend In Narnia” with sneak peeks from Prince Caspian. Simultaneously, Disney affiliate, ABC, presented the broadcast premier of The Lion, The Witch, and The Wardrobe also with sneak peeks. The Weekend in Narnia will continue Sunday night.

Part 1 of the Weekend in Narnia included many new shots, and a clip of Caspian meeting the Pevensies (YouTube link):

During commercial breaks of the LWW network premiere, the cast introduced a new behind-the-scenes video, and a clip of Caspian meeting Reepicheep (YouTube link):

UPDATE: The missing behind-the-scenes video introduced by Georgie and Skandar is now online:

It’s also interesting to note that for TV, they edited the film so that the final scene with Lucy and Professor Kirke came right after he said “try me.” View it here.

*****
One of the Disney Channel clips was the scene where Caspian and Peter meet for the first time. The clip is one minute long. The ABC clip introduced Reepicheep to Prince Caspian who was running from a group of Telmarines with Trufflehunter and Nikabrik.

~DaughterofEve~ posted this rundown of the Disney Channel spot:

It begins with Lucy walking and she hears a grunt growl and thinks it is Aslan. Peter comes up from behind her and covers her mouth and they both duck behind a bush only to fins it was a minatour. Peter gets his sword out and begins to apporch the minatour when out of nowhere Caspian comes and they swing swords getting Peter’s stuck in a tree, then Caspian kicks Peter down, Caspian gets his sword, Peter gets a rock and before they blow Lucy comes running in. They stop and stare while Narnians from everywhere come. Then Susan is like “Peter!” and enter Susan, Edmund, and Trumpkin. Then they stop oh this is when the Narnians come. Then Peter is like “Prince Caspian?” And there is abit more dialouge before he is like “Your not what I expected” and he looks at Susan then Edmund is like “Neither are you”. Then Reepicheep comes in and has some dialouge. Lucy leans into Susan and is like “He’s so cute!” Then Reepicheep is offended and starts saying more noble descriptions. then Peter and Caspian talk and they seem to dislike eachother right off. Caspian was like “I thought you woudl be older” and Peter is like “then we will come back ina few years”. Caspian figures out its Peter by of course Peter’s sword, which he is holding then he gives it back (then Peter gives him his sword at the end as confirmed by that picture) Of course there is wonderful HGW score and Trufflehunter speaks!!!
