Lucy’s Reaction to MLG Going Overboard

Posted September 24, 2009 10:34 am by Glumpuddle

A few days ago, Tamara posted a video showing the Mysterious Little Girl (Gael) and RhinceΒ  jumping off the ship. It started all kinds of speculation and discussion about who the girl was, and why she was jumping off the ship.

Now, this video might give us some another clue. It shows Lucy and Edmund’s reaction:

Before the calling action, Jeff Okabayashi seems to say “They just jumped in the water, and they’re swimming out to their mom.” It’s hard to read Lucy’s expression, but Edmund puts his arm around her. Any theories on why? Post them here.

    and Lucy… Lucy is good too πŸ™‚

    Awww how sweet. πŸ™‚

  • Aarvis(narniafan#1) says:

    Adorable! But this might explain some of the pics of Skandar and Georgie in the other link. At least this isn’t any other changes. If it were…

  • twinimage says:

    My guess is, with them wearing armor, this is after the "big pitched battle" at Narrowhaven I suspect will happen. The MLG is freed and gets to go see mommy. Though I could be wrong. Isn’t the MLG part of the dragon attack scene? Can’t remember

  • Anonymous Narnian says:

    Love the "Nawww, he put his arm around her." bit at the end. Yay for big brothers (wish I had one of those)and yay for Edmund (REALLY wish I had one of those)!

  • Gandalfs Beard says:

    I bet the Mysterious Little Girl is one of the Sea People they find near the End of the World. I suspect she’s the one Lucy immediately knew she liked when she saw her. That might have been difficult to convey, so the director probably altered the story slightly to have Lucy and the Sea Girl actually meet.

    • NarniaLuver4Ever says:

      I think that this is best idea I’ve read yet about the MLG. I guess we’ll all just have to wait until Dec. 10th. to find out for sure!

      • narniafan4ever says:

        yeah, it could be. But I thought that the sea-people looked kind of like mermaids. (??) Idk. Like you said…..we’ll see what it really is on Dec. 10th…but that seems sooooo far away!!!!!!!!!! :))

      • Roguewolf says:

        Hmm, I never thought of that before. I wonder why Rhince jumped after her then?

      • Narniamiss says:

        Ha, I actually said this a long time ago, but was voted down. We shall soon see…

      • Princess Arya says:

        I have thought of the mermaid idea…hey, doesn’t the book say something about Drinian not wanting the crew to see the people under the water, because otherwise they might jump overboard? May that explain Rhince?
        If that is totally absurd, never mind…

      • narniafan4ever says:

        Well, the only person who jumped over in the book was Reep….Plus, they both saw the same person and they both must know her cause they both called to her. (sorry if that was confusing…..it’s kind of a run-on sentence) anyways, if you remember in the first movie at the pev.’s coronation, there was a fast little scene that had mermaid-looking things come out of the water by Cair Paravel. Well, Lucy mentions that in the book when she sees the sea-people and says that "they were dancing at our coronation…" Or something along those lines… πŸ™‚

      • narniafan4ever says:

        oh…and when I said "they" I meant, MLG and Rhince. πŸ™‚

    • WillMoseleyandSkandarcrush! says:

      It’s a thought… but I expected a mermaid looking thing. Maybe this was after they got out of slavery and they secretly took this girl who Pug kidnapped and are helping to look for her mother. And when they try to comfort her, Rhince sees her off distance and MLF jumps to swim to her mom while Rhince knows she can’t swim very well and thinks she will probably drown in the waves. And the reason Rhince knows the mother’s name is MLF told him when they asked, "What is your mother’s name?" And the Edmund hugs Lucy thing is probably because Lucy doesn’t want to say goodbye to her in this way. Or she’s nervous about something. Either way, that was cute! And I’m jealous. I would do ANYTHING to be Georgie so Skandar could hug me. And William Moseley and Georgie kiss each other on the cheek and forehead. Lucky Georgie and Anna!:(… But when I first learned Susan’s named was Anna Popplewell, I jumped for joy! Anna is my name too. Anna Popplewell is the most GORGEOUS woman on earth! And William Msoely and Skandar Keynes are the most GORGEOUS men on earth!!!

    • Starlily says:

      The Sea Person theory sounds good, but I really can’t believe it. Why would an exotic sea-girl be wearing a plain Narnian dress? She just looks like a normal girl. Or maybe they completely redo her in CGI… But I thought she was in the same scene as Eustace/dragon? Nahh…I can’t figure it out. We’ll just have to wait and see. *sigh*

    • Zoe says:

      The mer-girl is WAY after the dragon sequence….so I think it’s practically impossible for MLG to be her.

    • Gandalfs Beard says:

      I don’t know why the sea Girl would be part of the Dragon sequence either. Was she actually seen in the Dragon scene? Films are usually shot out of sequence, maybe part of the Sea People scene was being shot the same day as part of the Dragon scene. As to being in a Narnian dress, maybe the Sea People scene was drastically altered. In the book, it is mentioned that a party of warriors (or was it hunters?) were angry at the Dawn Treaders trespass. Perhaps in the film, the sea Girl comes on board for a while and gets dressed up in human clothing. And this might be used to explain the other Sea People’s anger. As to the lack of fins, the Sea People aren’t the same as Mer-people if I recall correctly. Didn’t they ride on Sea-horses, and I think Pauline Baynes illustrations show them with legs. And I think Princess Arya’s speculation is a likely explanation for Rhince jumping overboard.

    • Magestic Peter Knight says:

      I bet that she is the mermaid that lucy "became friends with" just by looking at her. But very, very mysterious.

  • King Skandar the Just says:

    awe! that’s so nice! I love Edmund! he is so cool! He’s definitely a good big brother!

  • ernesto torres chΓ‘vez says:

    wow esta chido el video sisisisisisi y ps que bien todo bye

  • hiphel says:

    Perhaps it was just a scene where they are contimplating whether to go or not, and perhaps lucy and edmund realise how much they miss they’re mum … ?? (i don’t know it’s a hunch) πŸ˜€

  • InLoveWithAslan says:

    That was sooooo cute what Edmund did!!!!!! He’s a good big brother.

  • narnialover101 says:

    Can’t say there is anything really new here (we already knew Edmund put his arm around Lucy to comfort her from the spy pictures) but still nice to see. πŸ™‚

  • I_LiVe_iN_NarNia:P says:

    I think that maybe they did this as if they were happy that the girl got to see her Mum. They both seem calm enough. Just a guess though πŸ™‚

  • pselpevensie says:

    cool video. if lucy is that worried about her (that edmund has to come over and comfort her) then she must be pretty important to the story.

  • daughter of the King says:

    Lucy is probably emotional about MLG being reunited with her mother. Edmund, being the really great big brother, senses this and comforts her.

  • Mirima Rosetrader says:

    I wonder who her mom is? I got this crazy theory, but since she jumped in the water… what if her mom was a mermaid? That is why. I’m not sure how it would work but it’s an idea. But that was sweet when Ed put his arm around Lucy, I bet she was said the girl went, but happy at the same time. At least that’s what I think. Sail on VDT!

  • Trufflehunter says:

    But the guy on the microphone says they’re jumping in after their mother. Doesn’t this mean tht if the is Rhince, the MLG is his little sister?!?!?

    • Fire Fairy says:

      My thoughts exactly…"their mother"? Does this imply that Rhince is MLG’s big brother? Or did Okabayashi simply simplify it so he wouldn’t have to say "her mother and his wife"?? That’s definitely something to think about…

      • Aliea says:

        Wow, i think you might be right! they look like they might be brother and sister… *Crazy Thery alert* what if they just rescued their mom from Pug!

      • narniafan4ever says:

        Are you sure they didn’t say "the mum" as just a title that they gave her? hmmm….. interesting things to think about… :/

      • Trufflehunter says:

        Yeah this is exactly my point/ what I think. Rhince must have a little sister (or now boy), Gael, the MLG and they are saving THEIR mother they’re siblings so it’s got to be there mother. Or at least this is what it looks like to me.

  • Eden says:

    How sweet!! *sighs dreamily* lol, I can’t wait to see this scene in the movie.

  • Lutra's Pearl says:

    I am not even going to try to guess. I will just wait till the movie comes out…in over a year. Keep the story of Aslan alive.

    • narnia365 says:

      I agree. It’s fun to imagine what might have been happening, but honestly, we won’t know much of anything until the movie comes out. And even then, it could get deleted in the final edits.

  • Mark Friedrich says:

    I wonder if the little girl is the future Jill in Silver Chair?

    • Princess Arya says:

      How could that be?

      • BenBarnesGal says:

        I agree with you why would jill be in the VDT. Its madness

      • Mark Friedrich says:

        You can never know. Stranger things have happend. Remember When I said about the beard? I said that It’s posable Ben Barns was showing a yonger beard as a glimps of what the older beard would probably look like. It may be a similer thing with the little girl being prapared for SC

      • Silver the Wanderer says:

        But Mark Friedrich, Jill goes to Eustace’s school back in England. She couldn’t be in VDT.

      • Mark Friedrich says:

        I’m not saying it’s really jill, for all I know it may not be, but I’m saying is that, that actor, who ever she is has a great feauter in her hands and you never know she could be in SC sometime.

      • Narniamiss says:

        That would be posotively absolutely gottabe rediculous! I hope by the Lion’s Mane something that drastic would never happen.

      • narniafan4ever says:

        Agreed, Narniamiss!

      • Mark Friedrich says:

        Well, think about it. Remember how long VOD got even before the actual start of the filming because of the uncertendy of the movie it self. If Silver Cair is like VOD, meaning Fox being droped and a new production company taking up the spot, I could see that little girl in SC.

    • Magestic Peter Knight says:

      She wouldn’t be Jill. If she is, how would they open The Silver Chair?

  • Please Type Here says:

    OH that is just too cute!

    Maybe what happened was that Lucy was upset about the MLG leaving. I hope that the character that this girl is playing doesn’t drown and Edmudn is comforting Lucy on her death or soemthing like that.

  • Prince Norin says:

    It looks like Lucy is smiling… my guess is that it is a happy moment for them – perhaps seeing families separated by slavery reunited? But "they’re swimming out to meet THEIR mom?" Could that mean that MLG (Gael) is Rhince’s little sister? I’m excited to see this little subplot.

  • yeswelovenarnia says:

    i guess we shall see. as long as it is something that is not added (liek an extra part) if it is part of the narrowhaven sequence or the merpeoples sequence then it would be nice. i guess. Edmund is soooooooooooooooooo cool!!!!!!!!!

  • 7chronicles says:

    Edmund and Lucy totally look like brother and sister! It’s great! I wonder how this will play out on screen, guess I’ll have to wait for more!

  • ASLAN'S CHILD says:

    oh my god that was the sweatest thing i have ever seen.i wish i had a big brother.i love skandar.he’s the best!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Lucy Grace says:

    /I/ think that MLG (Gail) sees a halucination of her mother (maybe her mother is dead or missing?) and swims after her even though she doesn’t know how to swim well, Rhince jumps in and saves her, and Lucy gets worried so Ed puts his arm around her. I have no idea who the girl is, though, maybe she was a slave girl and Lucy just kind of took a liking to her (like a sister/sister relationship because Lucy’s never had a younger sister to comfort or hang out with). But I don’t think it’s the fisherdess. At least I hope not. I would think they’d look more, like, green and sea-like. But maybe they’ll add that in w/ CG? I dunno.Anyway, that’s what I think.
    ~Lu~

    • Fire Fairy says:

      But in the other video, didn’t Rhince shout "Elaine" or "Lily" or something like that BEFORE MLG shouts "mommy!" and jumps overboard? Two people don’t usually see the same hallucination…unless they’re both seeing different hallucinations, but that’s merely a wild guess, especially since one of the casting calls was for "Gael’s mum". I don’t know. It’s something to consider, I guess, but doesn’t seem very likely.

  • Starlily says:

    This is cute, but very strange. I really don’t know what to think. It’s nice to have all these theories, but we really won’t know until we have a lot more information. I hope this subplot isn’t too weird or unfaithful to the book. :/

  • Loyal Narnian says:

    I don’t think Rhince and MLG are brother and sister. MLG yells mommy after Rhince yells someones name. I don’t think he’d be calling his mom after her first name.

    • narniafan4ever says:

      Yeah, i agree. Plus, the director yells, "she’s jumped in after the mum…" So, they probably just call MLG’s mom "the mum"…. just a thought.

  • Mark Friedrich says:

    What does MLG stand for?

  • ExtremeFan says:

    THATS AWESOME!!!skandar being nice to georgie! i cant wait to se an interview with the two of them in it. u know there hasn’t been any interviews with just the two of them… or has there? inform me if u know plz. two of my FAVORITE actors. Rock on skandar and georgie! and course VDT!!!

    • Narniabigfan says:

      OMG!!!I just think the same like you think!there hasn’t been any interviews with the two of them…And i’m really wan’t to see Skandar and Georgie being interview too.That would be so nice!!

  • Aslan's my homeboy says:

    awwww so cute! I wish I was Georgie at that moment lol πŸ™‚

    • aslan'schild says:

      uh, i dont think so. that would definatly be me πŸ™‚ i love my skandy candy… idk wat that means really… πŸ™‚

  • Digory 83 says:

    This is just a thought, But what if Pug had actually Kidnapped Rhince’s (wife maybe, that would explain why He called her a different name the the MLG),and the MLG’s mother sometime before, and taken her as a slave to the Lone Islands. Then they go to King Caspian and ask for his help to find their mother. When Caspian hears this He Wants to Help so he takes them with the Dawn Treader and it’s crew. This way he is forewarned about the slavery on the lone Islands, and King Caspian could have brought extra armor and soldiers for a fight.(that could also explain the Minotaur, Why he is on the boat.) And that is why Rhince and the MLG are on the ship, to find their mother. They finally find the MLG’s Mother, And that would definitely help move the plot along. What do you think?

    • Ariel_of_Narnia says:

      Hmm… sounds okay…. Except for the "forewarning" part. I don’t like that idea (I always loved the part where they get captured).

    • The Batman says:

      Yeah, that would make sense! I can’t wait to see this part in the movie!

    • celtic13β™₯ says:

      that sounds pretty good except for them being warned about the slavery. That’s one of my fav parts! then again, I can’t really think of a part I don’t like πŸ˜‰

  • NarniaNerd135 says:

    Has everyone forgotten the island where dreams come true? Gael could be "seeing" her mother, when really she’s remembering a dream about her! That might explain the damaged ship too. Sail on DT!

    • Ariel_of_Narnia says:

      Ooh. Good one! It MAY be a possibility…. (since they can digitally make day look like night (or, in this case, plain dark))

    • Fire Fairy says:

      That’s definitely something to think about! But I thought the island made nightmares (real dreams) come true, not daydreams.

      • narnian resident says:

        perhaps it was a nightmare. perhaps she lost her mother and she had a nightmare about it. but the way lucy and edmund react dont look like she jumped into the water in the dark island. they would be freaking out. they’re reaction is too solemn and simple for anything like that.

  • Ariel_of_Narnia says:

    This MLG is really killing me! I wanna know who in the blue blazes she is!!

  • loverforBen says:

    Cool more information!

  • narnian resident says:

    isnt that the sweetest thing! i love that! it shows that brother-sister love. that is just precious! i wonder if that means the little girl has left and lucy wont see her again. hmm…

  • Aslans_jewel says:

    is that a sword? Lucy doesn’t seem like a sword person, she’s the healer, not the killer…

  • narniafan4ever says:

    That is so sweet! Aw! Brotherly love is awesome! :))

  • Taigan says:

    I have a theory. Do you guys remember that scene in the book (it’s been a while, so I forget it exactly) when the Dawn Treader sailed into this darkness, and inside was everyone’s worst fears. Well maybe the writers took that out (for PG rating’s sake) and instead added an area where everyone sees their greatest desires (sort of like the Sirens…) so this girl saw her mother and jumped off the ship, but then Rhince went overboard to save her. This is just a theory…

  • Hannah says:

    Aww, this is really sweet! It reminds me of my big brother and I. As to why Edmund put his arm around Lucy…I’m not sure…it seems like he’s trying to comfort her. So, did something bad happen? Or maybe something bad was about to happen and nothing bad happened so Edmund was putting his arm around her to show relief. There are so many ways a scene like this could go!

  • Caspian says:

    *Edmund slings his arm around Lucy’s shoulder*
    "Don’t worry, Lu. Caspian’ll have to shave sometime." ;D

    The MLG is going to be the death of us. I’m sure of it. Never knew a Caspian to die of curiousity, so I’ll probably be the first.

    • celtic13β™₯ says:

      hahaha! LOL! πŸ˜€ Caspian NEEDS to shave! Oh no, don’t die! Then you won’t be able to find out who the MLG and what is she doing in the movie! πŸ˜‰

  • Ariana says:

    I HAVE IMPORTANT INFORMATION FOR THE MYSTERIOUS LITTLE GIRL:
    It IS Gael! I watched the first video of Lu reacting her jumping overboard, and she yelled "Gael!" So yes, it IS Gael.

  • twinimage says:

    Interesting and yet confusing… What meaneth this?

  • Mark Friedrich says:

    Arn’t there any more pictures of Skandar, Georgie and WIll together. And by the way does anyone know what Anna Popplewell and William Moseley are doing these days, since thay have left the Narnian scien. I’m sure they’re watching what’s going with VOD closely

  • Mark Friedrich says:

    Oh, By the way, this is public, so watch your language.

  • Narniamiss says:

    Hmm, it would be really interesting if both Rhince and Gael were having a nightmare (via Dark Island) and both jumped off the boat, upon seeing something horrible happen to their mother/wife? Kind of an interesting theory, but also kind of far out. I certainly hope they don’t do anything that drastic!

  • Azon the Narnian says:

    I think it is Sea people.

    • NarniaRox says:

      I’m sure this isn’t the sea people because in the book it said that Lucy recognized them as the sea people coming to their coronation. We’ve already seen them in LWW right before the camera zooms up and towards the hall after the battle…
      Seeing this, i am convinced that she is not a sea person.

      There is a possibility that Director Apted might want to change the style a bit. But if this is true, then i have to say, i prefer Andrew Adamsons mermaids…just my thoughts…

      • Mark Friedrich says:

        Sea People? Do they have actors playing the sea people, Because I don’t see them.

      • narniafan4ever says:

        Well, Sea people don’t come in until the end of the book, so she can’t be a sea-person.
        But, I do hope they put that scene in there with the sea-people cause the description in the book is so neat! But, I don’t think they will need actors for that part….they could probably use CG for that. πŸ™‚

  • Narnian girl says:

    How sweet! Geogie/Lucy looks so different to me.

  • I says:

    I think Gael is the guy honestly.
    =/

  • Mark Friedrich says:

    I can’t believe Georgie has grown so much

  • EdmundPevensie says:

    Maybe the little girl is a fellow captured slave that Edmund and Lucy had befriended. Then when they were freed she came with them and then jumped off the boat when she saw her mom on shore. Just an idea.

  • Jewel the Unicorn says:

    Gael is the little girl you’re talking about.

  • Narnian Jesus Freakβ™₯(used to be celtic13) says:

    Who IS the MLG aka Gael?!?!? I don’t remember her in the book.

    • narniafan4ever says:

      That is why we are all concerned about her being in the movie….she isn’t mentioned in the book. πŸ™

  • Elizabeth says:

    There was not a little girl going overboard in the book! There were mermen and mermaids swimming in the clear water in or near Aslan’s country. why add the girl??

    • narniafan4ever says:

      That is precisely the question. Why is Gael in the movie?!? But we shall see. She is definitely NOT a sea-person. That is for certain. πŸ™‚

  • Em says:

    AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! WHY WON’T MY STUPID COMPUTER LET ME WATCH IT?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!
