Behind-the-Scenes Video: The Picture in the Bedroom

Posted December 21, 2010 8:45 pm by Glumpuddle

A new 10-minute behind-the-scenes video reveals how the filmmakers achieved the scene where Edmund, Lucy, and Eustace are drawn into Narnia through the picture in the bedroom.

It turns out they did not fill the room with water. Instead, they locked the camera down and sunk the entire set into the water… creating the illusion that the water was flooding out of the picture. Safety was a major concern of course; the actors all had to receive scuba lessons in order to film the scene.

Thanks to ‘Liberty Hoffman.’

    Unfortunately the video cannot be viewed outside of the US πŸ™

      I know, right? Talk about annoying. That sounded really interesting. They did that transition scene so well, it would have been great to see exactly how they did it. I know the basics of it, though. I reckon it’s really clever!

    • Embrace says:

      Think outside the box! πŸ˜‰

    • Griffle says:

      I’ve never really understood why Narniaweb keep on posting stuff not available for everyone to enjoy. I find that to be really unfair and annoying. I guess the mods just love to tease members living outside of the US.

    • yeswelovenarnia says:

      I live in the US and I was able to view it.

    • Gabby says:

      I live in the US and I cant see it. Its not just for people in the US.

    • HM Swanwhite says:

      I agree! I was really looking forward to watching this! The US gets everything! Ahh! Maybe it will become a special feature or someone will post it to YouTube…. πŸ™‚

      • NextJillPole says:

        No, America definitely does NOT get everything. So what, we get one little clip of how they made a scene that everyone’s already seen in the movie anyway. All the British people actually get the parts, and they filmed in Australia. America definetely does not get everything.

        P.S.: If you’re not British or Australian, then sorry about this rant. It’s just from an American who wants a role in the Narnia movies, and I’d soon as sprout wings as to get the role of Jill because I’m not British.

      • Warrior 4 Jesus says:

        Grrr… I’m not happy about the restrictions either. Especially since VDT was filmed here in Australia! Hopefully it comes to YouTube very soon.

        Jill Pole HAS to be played by a British actress. No two ways about it.

      • Hannah says:

        Hi I’m American but I can speak in a British accent so why can’t American girls be Jill Pole ?

    • Blackdog says:

      Thats realy anoying that seen is so interesting.

  • Not Of This World says:

    Very interesting! (Watching the clip reminded me of how great of an actor Will is)

    • Edmund's Queen says:

      Yes, he’s wonderful, but Skandar is Skandarific! Skantastic! He’s my Skandie eye-candy! (Please pardon my fan nutiness; I just know Queen Elizabeth is going to reply saying "You need to take it down a notch" LOL)

      • Queen Elizabeth says:

        HAHA! I love you Edmund’s Queenb lol πŸ™‚ Here’s a word for you Skanderlous! lol (that was not as good as Skandarific)

      • Edmund's Queen says:

        I absolutely love Skandarlous. There is actually a video of him on you tube called Skandarlous. I read in a recent comment you posted that you are a teenage Narnian fan? So am I! I’m sixteen and have been in love with Narnia ever since my mom read me the books when I was eight years old. I think we should start a fan club called NTC (Narnian Teens Club). I love you too, Queen Elizabeth, ’cause remember when I was so sad about not seeing Skandar and Georgie when they were here in America? You spoke words of comfort. THey really did help me. πŸ™‚

      • Queen Elizabeth says:

        haha yea I’m pretty sure I’ve seen the Skandarlous video too lol. I spent a whole day looking up videos of him and interviews on YouTube. (I hope I don’t sound like a stalker cause I’m really not) Way back when, I wanted to make Team Edmund t-shirts. But people thought I was odd lol πŸ™‚

      • Yerdif says:

        Oh wow! So I’m not the only teen here, then? That’s soo cool! I’m 18, so can I join? I’ve been a Narnia fan since I read the books back when I was 12, I think.

      • Queen Elizabeth says:

        Of course you can Yerdif! (I think Edmund’s Queen is the President and I am the vice President) (idk something like that πŸ™‚

        Members thus far:

        Edmund’s Queen – 16
        Queen Elizabeth – 15
        Yerdif – 18

      • Princess Jennifer says:

        Darn it !!! I"m 12 !!!! One more year and I would be a teen !!!! Ah Well, Enjoy the club !!

      • Narnian_Dreamer says:

        I want to join!!! Im 14 (well actually still 13 for another one and a half months)!! Great idea really! Can I be treasurer?? LOL

      • Dancinginrain says:

        I’m 13! I looove Skandar! Can I be a member?

      • Princess Jennifer says:

        Darn it !!!! I"m the youngest here !!! Probably the youngest on NarniaWeb !!! Well, I can join in Sept. Sigh………………

      • Queen Elizabeth says:

        I hate to leave out the 12 and under group (Don’t worry you’ll get there πŸ™‚

        The only requirements is that you love Narnia and are a teen πŸ™‚
        And love Skandar, but maybe not as much as Edmund’s Queen and me lol πŸ™‚

      • Michael says:

        I’m 13 soon to be 14 in twelve days. So I guess I can join. May I? Those who are not yet 13 should make a tween group. Just a suggestion.

      • Queen Elizabeth says:

        Haha I guess anyone who is a teen cain join you don’t really have to ask πŸ™‚ Thanks Edmund’s Queen! This was all your idea. πŸ™‚

      • EdmundPevensie says:

        Haha I’d love to join! Skandar is definitely my favoritestest! And I’m 16 too πŸ™‚

      • Edmund's Queen says:

        Oh my gosh, I really started something here, haven’t I? I just joined narniaweb this month too! Cool! I love all you fellow Skandar lovers! Oh, BTW, I thought of some more names in the car tpday: Skandsome, Skandelicious, Skandreamy, Skandamazing. Maybe it’s overkill, but I can’t help it. I just love Skandar! You know how there’s t shirts that say "Team Jacob" and "Team Edward"? We need "Team Edmund" t’s!

      • Princess Jennifer says:

        You should start a blog on here about the club !!!! Maybe you would get more people !!!

      • Princess Jennifer says:

        Double Darn it !!! I AM the youngest here !!!!!!!!!!!!!!

      • Queen Elizabeth says:

        To Edmind’s Queen: You are so cool! lol πŸ™‚ Finally a fellow Skandar lover with as much passion as me (ok that sounded odd but you know) I came up with the t-shirt idea long ago πŸ™‚ I want mine to be black with medium blue lettering.

      • Edmund's Queen says:

        I need to learn how to create a blog, ’cause there is so much I want to say to all my dear fellow teen fans. πŸ™‚ It would be neat if one of us could make the shirts and find some way to distribute them! We’d probably have to make "Team Peter" and "Team Caspian" t’s as well because, you know, they’re gorgeous too and some girls out there just might like them better. But as you all know quite well, I’m an Ed girl.

      • Queen Elizabeth says:

        I think there should just be Team Edmund and Team Caspian. Becuase they do fight a lot it VDT lol

      • Edmund's Queen says:

        don’t forget Peter though! Remember, he and Caspian fight in PC. You know, Peter and Edmund are like trying to kill Caspian and then Susan goes and kisses him! LOL

      • Princess Jennifer says:

        I know how to make shirts with pictures on them. Well, There is this shirt making kit you can get at Wal-Mart.

    • Michael says:

      I can easily make t-shirts, but i’m not sure if my parents would let me go along with distributing them out to a bunch of people i don’t really know that well.

  • glumPuddle says:

    This scene didn’t lift me out of my seat like the transition to Narnia in PC, but it was a decent scene.

    • Edmund's Queen says:

      LOL, it takes a lot to please you, glumpuddle, no offense. Are you the one who did those trailer analyses on You Tube? ‘Cause you seem like a seious movie critic. πŸ™‚ Do you like Lord of the Rings?

      • Embrace says:

        He is and he does! Seriously entertaining, intelligent and interesting analysis and discussions that are always fun and great to look forward to! πŸ™‚

      • Edmund the Just says:

        I love the Lord of the Rings!

      • Edmund's Queen says:

        ME TOO! They are some of the best books and movies of all time! Who’s your favorite? I like Legolas and Eowyn and Frodo.

    • ~DaughterOfEve~ says:

      Really? I enjoyed this transition more than the PC transition. The train station transition was brilliant but I always felt that the painting filling the room with water was much more exciting and I believe it was. Either way, both transition scenes in both films were amazing.

    • Noogah says:

      Yeah? I’m sure you would’ve liked the scene more if it had more to do with Reepicheep and the longing for one’s true home.

    • Mangolite says:

      The entrance in to Narnia in LWW was subtle and magical. In PC, it’s in your face, but the return was a head scratcher, like, how did they get their clothes back and walking among all of those train commuter without anyone realizing that these four kids just materialize out of thin air. Well at least, in LWW, they were turned back to kids and had returned in a wardrobe. It must be wonderful that Aslan did not return the kids naked, how terrifying that would be for everyone-ha! Anyway back to the subject. In VDT, they tried that magical entrance with a meet-me-in-the-middle effect, and I thought they did do a great job. It’s so pronounce as in PC but enough to grab our attention and smart enough to allowed for our imagination to run that they have somehow entered Narnia through the painting. Again, of course, their return was that they came with their contemporary clothes and dry. I want me some fast drying clothes like those.

  • Fire Fairy says:

    Awesome clip. I had already figured out how they did the bedroom scene by lowering it into the tank after watching the b-rolls, but it was still cool to watch. I really liked being able to see how they got all the water coming out of the picture and all that, and seeing the stuff in the big tank. It’s really cool that they did it with the real actors and not stunt doubles. It seems like all of the Narnia films are like that, which gives them a much more real feel. Way to go to Georgie, Skandar and Will for being such troopers!

  • vdt what says:

    well I saw vdt and it was great i also read the book a couple of weeks before i saw it and its good. oh great scene by the way.though I felt it was rushed and Eustace earnd to be a boy but everything else was perfect

  • the other Pevensie girl says:

    I’ve seen the film three times (just saw it for the 3rd this evening! :D), and each time this scene takes my breath away (: way to go for Georgie, Will, and Skandar! that must have been a lot of work!

  • Edmund's Queen says:

    Wow. I never really thought of how much went into that scene. Great work on Will, Georgie, and Skandar’s part. Skandar is hot underwater too! I wish I was Georgie; imagine getting to be around Skandie so much! It be like a dream!

  • Lady_Liln says:

    Love the fact that we’re seeing bits of Eustace’s lines, left on the cutting room floor. . . πŸ™ *sigh*

    Interesting video, as a whole though. πŸ™‚

    • stateofgreen says:

      What Eustace lines on the cutting room floor? I didn’t see anything that I didn’t see in the movie, except how they did the special effects. This is am extremely cool ‘making of’ scene. It will probably be on the DVD. Plus I hope there are tons of cut scenes that if they put an extended cut together the movie will hopefully have more depth to it than the final product. But I won’t hold my breath.

      I applaud the three actors getting their diving certificates to go through the rigors of filming this to make it a great scene. I like this one better than the Prince Caspian entry into Narnia.

  • Sarah Peller says:

    I can"t get it to play on my computer !!! That sucks !!!

  • Gem says:

    This was one of the scenes that I thought they did perfectly in the film. Very cool, amazing effects.

  • Big B. says:

    I loved the ending,when they Disapeared in the Never ending wave,they swam up in the room,clothes dry and the water Disapears into the painting like water going into a drain

  • Duke says:

    i’m so grateful i’m here in LA right now for my christmas vacation LOL. if im not here then im gonna be stuck in toronto where i can’t view this sickkk video!

  • elton says:

    this is amazing

  • Pepper Darcy says:

    scuba lessons? I would have hated that! But that is *so* cool how they did that! I thought it was brilliant filling the room with water instead of having them sucked into the picture (which would have been hard)… I guess the point was to just ‘get’ the picture to bring them to Narnia πŸ™‚ But, again, it was an amazing scene! πŸ™‚

  • Liberty Hoffman says:

    it’s so epic!
    wow, it’s crazy what they had to go through to get that scene done!

  • _Lilliandil_ says:

    I think they did the entrance into Narnia excellently. I can’t believe they did so well. It was different than the book but i don’t mind, i think it was one of the best scenes of the movie. Very memorable and well done.

  • Michael says:

    The scene was done very well but unfortunately I can’t view the video. I’m not in the US.

  • greenbird37 says:

    This was so cool…always wondered how they did that! Awesome!

  • Queen Elizabeth says:

    I love this scene!! The only thing is though with the acting, they should have been more frantic and surprised. It’s not like they knew the water was ever going to stop rising lol Will P. did great though once he got out of the water.

    • Princess Jennifer says:

      Yeah !! Will P. sounds like my younger brother !!! That probably is what he would say.

      • Edmund's Queen says:

        I absolutley love it when Will is screaming "Mother! MOther!" I was laughing so hard! He is very funny. I have a little tiny bit of experience in acting and let me tell you, doing it in water while trying to keep from hitting furniture and keeping above water would be very hard. Way to go you wonderful three musketeers!

      • Queen Elizabeth says:

        Will is so darn funny! I a laugh every time he says one of his funny remarks. The scene was less than a minute long on screen, it’s so cool seeing them off screen. And Skandars little comment in the video was funny too πŸ™‚ I love watching behind the scenes footage.

      • Princess Jennifer says:

        To Edmond"s Queen : What do you mean when you are talking about Musketeers ? Sorry, I missed it . Could you pass that by me one more time, sorry.

        To Queen Elizabeth : I Love watching footage behind the scenes too !!! It kind of tells me what the character is like. I have something real sad. I am near tears, I am actually only 12 years old. Everything else about me is true though. Sorry. I would still like to be your friend. I just said I was older so you would like me. Sorry.

      • Queen Elizabeth says:

        Yes I will still be friends with you Princess Jennifer lol
        My sister is only twelve and I am really good friends with a couple of her best friends, and they are only 12 and 13. Just be yourself, being young is nothing to be ashamed of lol πŸ™‚

      • Michael says:

        Princess Jennifer, it’s very good to just be yourself. It’s like Lucy, she wanted to be like Susan, she didn’t want to accept herself the way she was. It’s an important lesson for us all to learn.

      • Queen Elizabeth says:

        Very nice way to put it Michael πŸ™‚ That is why I love the Chronicles of Narnia, they teach you so many lessons that you can relate to in everyday life.

      • Princess Jennifer says:

        Yeah, I know it was wrong, sorry. I am a new person now. Thanks Queen Elizabeth !!! Thanks Michael !!!

      • Edmund's Queen says:

        Princess Jennifer, I wish I could see you now so I could give you a hug! I also have a sister who’s twelve, and I met a girl in the play I just performed in who is twelve and twelve year olds are great! Don’t feel like you need to be a teen to be accepted by teens. Oh, and the three musketeers thing I said was referring to Skandar, Will, and Georgie; there’s three of them, so i thought "Hey, the three musketeers!"
        To Queen E: I loved Skandar’s remark too. Actually, I love everything he says.

      • Queen Elizabeth says:

        Yea my little sis is 12 too πŸ™‚ She is a Will P. fan. She’s not as into Narnia as me but when she saw him she was like "oooohh he’s cute!" And I’m like not as cute as my Ed. lol (She thinks Skandar is odd, I think she’s nuts)

      • Princess Jennifer says:

        Thanks. You really have encouraged me. I hope you have fun in the club even if you change the subject.

        To Edmond"s Queen : Now I get it about the three musketeers !! That is funny !!! Thank you for trying to include me. I will be happy until Sept. Even though I can"t wait to get to Sept. So I can be a teen for the club.

        To Queen Elizabeth : I thank you too for trying to include me !!! You both are like the big sisters I never had !! I really don"t have big sisters but You are older than me, and you are so sweet !! Thank you !!! I hope you both have a Merry Christmas !!!

      • Edmund's Queen says:

        I have two little sisters and both are Skandar fans like me, only not quite as passionate, as you put it, lol. I’ve noticed you use the word "odd" quite a bit. I say that word all the time and no one else really does, except for you. It’s kinda odd.

      • Princess Jennifer says:

        Lol !! Do you think it"s odd ? Maybe were oddballs, No, I think I"m odd because I"m an oddball. lol !! I never noticed that !!

      • Edmund's Queen says:

        Oddness rocks! Maybe I’ll name my narnian fan blog "Narnian Oddballs". Long Live the Oddballs! πŸ™‚

      • Princess Jennifer says:

        lol !! Yes you could !!! If you don"t do it on Narniaweb ( witch I hope you do !! ) Please tell me what website it"s on so I can see it !!!

      • Queen Elizabeth says:

        Yea I like to use random words sometimes. It’s fun and keeps me going πŸ™‚ I try to live a happy life, not a dull one lol I use odd, anywho, yup, SKANDERLOUS! And other random words throughout the day to keep things interesting lol "Cause I’m cool like that." – Skandar Keynes (set interview)

      • Princess Jennifer says:

        Your life is SO cool !! It is, is, SKANDARLICIOUS !!! I hope I said that right. I enjoy using funny words too like….Dubious-meaning dougtful, and other such words.

  • Swordebrithil12 says:

    Now I can do that in *my* bedroom =D

  • Hwin says:

    I dislike that once again I can’t do something because I’m non-American =P Oh well, I loved this scene in the movie, and I really liked the idea of the room filling up with water, and when they swim up to surface they find themsleves in Narnia!

    I hope that they will have lots of special features when the movie comes out πŸ˜‰

  • NonAmericaaan says:

    I can’t see it!! Just because I’m not an american >:(
    Please someone, put another link which EVERYONE can see. Really America: there is more in the world than just America πŸ˜›

  • Swordebrithil12 says:

    Seriously it was like one of the best scenes they made! Now I feel like learning how to swim. XD

  • Mina says:

    Does anyone else find it weird that Eustace calls Alberta "mother?"

    • Pepper Darcy says:

      but then again, it’d be hard to explain that Alberta is his mother if he’s calling her ‘Alberta’– at least in a movie it’s a little hard to explain tactfully, unlike books which is easier to explain stuff like that. They might have dumped it simply becasue they couldn’t find a graceful way of explaining? πŸ™‚ And people who haven’t read the books might find it odd that Eustace is calling his mum ‘Alberta’ πŸ™‚

      Just a guess though πŸ™‚ I always thought it was *super* weird that Eustace called his mother ‘Alberta’ πŸ™‚

      • Princess Jennifer says:

        Well in the book it says that he was so rude. So that is what he said. Instead of being Respectful and saying mother he said Alberta. He did other bad things too.

      • Warrior 4 Jesus says:

        I figured that he called his mum and dad by their Christian names because his parents wrongly treated him as an equal (adults should be respectful of children but not treat them that way). Also, maybe they were a very formal family and it was representative of their family dynamic being almost business-like, instead of a warm and loving community. Just my two cents.

      • Princess Jennifer says:

        No, I actually DID read the book and that is what it said !!!

      • Warrior 4 Jesus says:

        Princess, not exactly. Obviously Eustace is a little brute but the book doesn’t mention that he called his parents by their Christian names out of disrespect. This is what the book says,
        "There once was a boy called Eustace Clarence Scrubb, and he almost deserved it. His parents called him Eustace Clarence and masters called him Scrubb. I can’t tell you how his friends spoke to him, for he had none. He didn’t call his Father and Mother "Father" and "Mother", but Harold and Alberta (Lewis, C.S 1990, 25th edn. p.7).

      • stateofgreen says:

        It’s what W4Jesus said. Eustace hasn’t been properly disciplined as a kid. Kids and parents aren’t supposed to be on equal footing. Kids are supposed to respect and obey authority (i.e. their parents). He has to get used to be "spanked" by Reep in the swordfight later. Tough love. πŸ™‚

  • Twinimage says:

    The one thing I HATE about these behind the scene footage videos is how everyone has to explain the plot summary and narrate what happens in the scene we’re watching. I KNOW what the movies about. And I KNOW that it’s important to get the scene right and to look real. That’s a no brainer! Total waste of the first 3 minutes.
    Aside from that, cool video. Cool to see how they did that scene. Smart idea of lowering and submerging the room in water, rather than filling it with water.

    • Queen Elizabeth says:

      yea I skipped the first 3 minutes, it was just a mash-up of clips and trailers that we have already seen.

  • yeswelovenarnia says:

    I LOVED this!! When I was watching the movie I wanted to know how they did that scene. It was the one scene I thought they did awesome with following the book! It was great to see how they actually filmed it!

  • Braden Woodburn says:

    Ahhh man you got to love the advancements of technology, green screens, and blue screens. I think it is amazing how they pull this stuff off! I’ve always thought the way they got to Narnia was exciting. Well, in The Lion, The Witch, and the Wardrobe they just practically walked into a wardrobe and they were there. Interesting, not that exciting. In Pricne Caspian, they’re standing in the train station and everything ends up breaking apart going in the direction of the train at a fast pace. Now that was rather awesome. In this one Voyage of the Dawn Treader, seeing a painting that starts to move, pour loads of water out, fill the entire room, sucks the children under, and then to be in Narnia, THATS EPIC! This part gave me chills once Lucy was like β€œEdmund the painting!” cause I was like β€œoooo get ready to be trasported backkkk!” =P

    • Queen Elizabeth says:

      I love watching how they do the greenscreens and placing marks and setting up the scene. If I am not a director I totally want to work with the green screens and CGI. It would be so much fun! I would love coming up with landscapes too. πŸ™‚

  • narnian resident says:

    i could only imagine how much work all of that must have been, for the crew and the actors. and very well done. that scene is one of the highlights, and one of my personal favorite. its extremely impressive how they did it.

    • Queen Elizabeth says:

      I know, it’s crazy how much work went into one 20 second long scene. They used like three sets for all of this. WOW

  • Princess Jennifer says:

    To Queen Elizabeth : How do you do that ?!? You really are like Aslan !!!!! I would believe it if Narnia was real !!!!! I was so wrong !!! I lied to you !!!! You amaze me !!! You show so much compassion !!! Well, I will never lie again, and everything else I said IS true !!!

  • Fireflower says:

    THAT. WAS. AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!!

  • John Freeman says:

    Thanks liberty, that was awesome!!!

  • Princess Jennifer says:

    To Queen Elizabeth: ( I just got the comment about the club..sorry ) Don"t worry about it !!! I would LOVE to join but I guess I will get there. I hope you have alot of fun and get Skandar items to collect !!!! I like all of the cast !!!! I think my favorite Pevensie is ………Peter…Peter or Edmond I love them both !!! But Lucy and Susan are cool too !!! Thanks for trying to include me !!! I hope you enjoy the club !!!!

    • Princess Jennifer says:

      Double Darn it !!!!

    • Edmund's Queen says:

      I want really badly to include you. You know how it can be with exceptions though; you let one in, then they all want in. You know, I think maybe we should lower the age to twelve. But that’s as far as I’m going, I think. We should have special pictures next to our names for club members. Maybe a certain Skandar pic? idk

      • Princess Jennifer says:

        Yeah It"s ok. I"ll get there. You are so compassionete but I know that you probably don"t want to make an exception and it will make more sense to have it only teens. Thanks a bunch though !! I might come anyway !!

  • Skandar-the Great says:

    I want to join the Edmund club! I am 15 and I am sure I like Skandar as much as Queen Elizabeth and Edmunds Queen. Do you guys kiss his picture every morning and night?

    • Queen Elizabeth says:

      Um… I’m super glad you love Skandar too πŸ™‚ But I can honestly said I have never kissed his picture. They do dominate one half of my bulliton board, but I am not that extreme lol I don’t see how kissing his picture will bring us any closer lol

    • Princess Jennifer says:

      Ewww!!!!!!!! Do you kiss his picture ? That is discusting !!!!! I may be a girl that is excited to move on to a teen…..but kissing is something that I do not look forward too !!!!

    • Warrior 4 Jesus says:

      *Snort* Sorry, your post is hilarious and a little sad. Narnia fans are welcome but the fan-girl activites should be kept to a minimum to respect the actors/actresses and so others of us don’t have to put up with sillyness. Thanks

      • Princess Jennifer says:

        I was talking to Skandar the Great. And I didn"t mean anything disrespectful, I was just having fun. I am a Christian and I don"t think it"s nice to tease, but I was just having fun !!

      • Skandar-the Great says:

        Wow! My bad! I’m really not that bad honest!

      • Skandar-the Great says:

        I’m a christian too.And I didn’t say I did that anyway.

      • Princess Jennifer says:

        Yes you did !!! lol !! Just kidding

      • Warrior 4 Jesus says:

        Princess, my comment wasn’t directed at you but Skandar the Great. Being a Christian has nothing to do with it. It has more to do with you girls being hormonal teenagers. πŸ˜›

      • Princess Jennifer says:

        Oops !!! Sorry !!!

      • Edmund's Queen says:

        Sorry, Warrior. It’s kinda hard for us "hormonal teenagers (lol)" to restrain our love for Edmund, but we shall try, out of respect for our elders. πŸ˜€

    • Edmund's Queen says:

      I love how there’s also so many Christians on here! I feel right at home! Skandar-the Great, welcome to the club! I have a picture of Skandar in my diary and I have kissed it before and I open my diary every now and then just to look at him.

      • Queen Elizabeth says:

        THAT IS CRAZY! I have a whole spread in my diary dedicated to pictures of him!!!!!! You are like the twin sister I never had!!!! πŸ™‚ How do you put a pic as your icon on here?

      • Princess Jennifer says:

        Yuck !!!! I agree about how many Christians there are !!! I am a Christian too !!! You kiss his picture ? Yuck !!! Yuck !!! Yuck !!!

      • Princess Jennifer says:

        Maybe if movie people saw our pictures, they would be even more eager to pick one of us as Jill !!!

      • Edmund's Queen says:

        I want to meet you Queen E! I have a friend who likes the same movies and books as me but she’s a Johnny Depp/Ben Barnes person. I know what you mean about the pics; I just can’t figure it out! Maybe we should ask glumPuddle or PeperDarcy.

      • Princess Jennifer says:

        I have a friend that sounds lie Queen Elizabeth too !!! She is in NE and she is 20. I Don"t think she knows about Narnia.

  • Cuppycakesrch says:

    VERY awesome

  • WillowofNarnia says:

    Amazing!!! They’re all so brave! πŸ˜€ πŸ˜›

  • Princess Jennifer says:

    Now I"ve got a question for anyone out there, two actually. Do you think I should start a blog ? I want too but if I did what would I write about ? I go in to start a blog, and leave because I don"t know what to write about !!! Any ideas ? To Queen Elizabeth I am still thinking…….

    • Queen Elizabeth says:

      You could write about fanatsy movies. Or your ideas in your book. Or your life in general, it sounds very interesting. since you are homeschooled and live far away from town πŸ™‚

      • Princess Jennifer says:

        To Queen Elizabeth: Really ? Thanks !!! I didn"t think it it really mattered until now !!! Thanks a bunch !!!

      • Princess Jennifer says:

        You really encourage me all the time !!!! I thank you with me eternal respect.

      • Princess Jennifer says:

        I took your advice and did one on my house and life, but I can"t get it to show up !!!! Any advice ?

  • Princess Jennifer says:

    To Queen Elizabeth: Maybe you could start a blog on your club !!!! It could be were you have your meetings and stuff. If you want, I won"t go in since I"m not a member yet.

  • Michelle says:

    that was so awesome

  • Princess Jennifer says:

    Hey !!! I got an idea !!! If it wouldn"t be disrespectful, I was wondering if I could open a club too. A club to all the Skandar fans that are preteens !! But if I"m the only one, it, wouldn"t help. Hmmmmm

    • Michael says:

      Good thinking! I’m sure there are others on here that are tweens/pre-teens.

      • Princess Jennifer says:

        Thanks !!! Are you a preteen ? I also was wondering if you knew how to start a blog.

      • Michael says:

        No, I’m 13 soon to be 14.

      • Princess Jennifer says:

        Thanks !!! Are you going to join the teen Skandar club ?

      • Michael says:

        Yes, I’m already part of it.

      • Handsome says:

        Wow !!! I"m real happy for you !!! I can"t wait to join, but I am only 12. I think someone should start a headline on here about your club !! That way, more people could join. Have fun at the club !! Do you know how to start a headline on here ?

      • Princess Jennifer says:

        Don"t talk to this morron Michael, He wants to take some girl to a personal chatroom and do something bad. Look on the headline about how to audition for Jill Pole. He is near the end. Don"t talk to him !!!

      • Princess Jennifer says:

        Do you know how to make a headline on here ?

      • Youngest Narnia fan says:

        I am 11 and would like to be in the tween club. That reminds me of the the lord of the rings were for hobbits the age between 21 and 33 you were a tween. I have been a Narnia Fan since before I can remember.

      • Princess Jennifer says:

        To The youngest Narnian fan : I am super happy to meet you !! I think it will be fun, our club, I was wondering…….Since you are the first to join the club I was wondering if you would want to be vice President of the the preteen Skandar cllub. I will give you any position you want in the club. Merry Christmas !!!!

    • Hannah says:

      Hi I’m 13 can I be in the group?

  • Talvi says:

    ugh!! I live in the US but I can’t view the video!!! :'( It won’t load for me and I don’t know why!!! πŸ™

    • Queen Elizabeth says:

      Try going to Hulu.com were the video is actually from. Maybe it will load from you there πŸ™‚

  • Queen Elizabeth says:

    Now next time I go to my family’s cabin on the lake I’m going to run out, jump off the dock into the water, then be in Narnia!! ( haha I wish)
    Except without a bookshelf floating around there are colorful fish and shiny rocks. it’s still beautiful. That is where I love the area where our cabin is…
    I call it my Narnia.

    • Princess Jennifer says:

      Awesome !!!!! You have such a cool life !!! I always wanted to live in a cabin !!! Like I said earlier, I have some woods out back that I pretend is Narnia. And made of all these branches is a tunnel !!! It is so awesome !! I pretend that I transform into Narnia as I go through the tunnel. We also have a pond with tunnels and even…….beavers !!!! I"ve never seen them but trees always fall and there are all of these strange footprints !!! And beaver marks on the trees.

    • Edmund's Queen says:

      I live on a mountain ridge, so there’s lots of trees around and I have pretended (even at age 16) that I’m walking through the Shuddering Wood or the orchard at Cair Paravel. Once when my sisters and I were staying at this empty house in Florida (it had been my great grandfather’s we were there for his funeral) we walked into one o the empty closets and imagined we were going to you know where.

      • Princess Jennifer says:

        Cool !!!! When we moved to our house It was empty, and I pretended it was Narnia. I also have an orchard and in spring, It is like the trees are dancing. They are Beautiful !! I wish I lived in the mountains !!!!!

  • Princess Jennifer says:

    I have a public Question. All Narnians !! How do you get to make a headline like the one were typing about ? The reviews don"t work and I can"t find anything else. Sorry everybody !!

  • Princess Jennifer says:

    Geese !!! I need to go to bed !! I didn"t know it was getting so late !!! Sorry Queen Elizabeth !! There I go !! Being a pest again !! Sorry !! Well, Good night !!!

  • Reepicheep says:

    That sucks, I can’t watch it because I’m not in the United States!!!

    • Princess Jennifer says:

      Were are you at Reepicheep ? I was telling my mom the other day that sometimes it is better to wait…..Sorry.

  • headstrong says:

    finally the movie comes out this tuesday in argentina! πŸ˜€

  • Queen Elizabeth says:

    So my day was just ruined. Apparently Skandar is an atheist, and I am a Christian. That was just a stab to the soul.

    • Princess Jennifer says:

      I am So sorry !!! But Susan is a strong Christian, and Peter is too. Georgie is as well and I looked it up, and it said Edmond is too !! I hope it shines some light on your day. I am so happy though that you are a Christian !!! I am too !!! Now I feel even better. I hope you do too !!!

      • Queen Elizabeth says:

        Actually in a written intwerview Skandar said he was an atheist so… πŸ™
        But I’m really glad the rest of them are Christians too πŸ™‚

      • Princess Jennifer says:

        Oh, I"m REAL sorry, I didn"t mean to give you wrong info. That is sad…… Maybe if one of us go into the movies, we could tell Skandar about the club. So, What will you do with the club ? You could pick a different character to make a club about.

      • Not Of This World says:

        Anna is? I just knew William and Georgie were. That’s awesome! But lets pray for Skandar!

      • Princess Jennifer says:

        When do you and Queen Elizabeth think you will write back ? I will try to be on here tommorrow and Maybe Christmas. I Love you two !!!

      • Princess Jennifer says:

        Also, I wanted to say that I LOVE how you can play so many insterments !! I can play the piano,sort of……..And I am trying to learn how to play the gutiar. I hope you and Queen Elizabeth get alot of cool things for Christmas too !!! Merry Christmas Eve !!!

      • Dancinginrain says:

        Wow you girls are so funny and seem very awesome! I am sooo very much praying for Skandar Keynes cuz I just love him sooo much! I am so happy that yall are praying for him too! I love you guys for that! I am a Christain also! πŸ™‚

      • Edmund's Queen says:

        You seem wonderful too Dancinginrain, and I’m so happy to hear that you’re a Christian as well. The more the merrier! And also, more praying for Skandar. I just love him, and he seems like a nice, smart guy. Hopefully he’ll wise up and accept Christ. Let’s keep our hopes and prayers up!

    • Edmund's Queen says:

      I wouldn’t be so sure about Skandar. You never know what sources you can trust. He is a great, great, great grandson of Charles Darwin though.

      • Edmund's Queen says:

        Oh shoot, snap, and double darn it! I just read on a Disney site that Skandar’s an atheist. I even googled "skandar keynes christian" and everything came up atheist and non christian. I wish I could witness to him somehow. Why must the hot ones always be inbelievers? It’s horrible!

      • Princess Jennifer says:

        I know I should probably know this, but ………Who is Charles Darwin ?

      • Edmund's Queen says:

        oops, I meant to say "unbelievers"

      • Princess Jennifer says:

        Maybe if you would go as Jill Pole you could get to meet Skandar and then Witness to him.

      • Queen Elizabeth says:

        To Edmund’s Queen and Princess Jennifer: I really wish I could meet you guys in real life. But it’s hard cause we don’t want to give out personal info. And my parents don’t want me to be-friend people I haven’t met in person on facebook πŸ™ But at least we can talk on here. Maybe in the future if I am working on a movie and you guys are still on here I can tell you guys where to come audition for it (if I need girls for a role πŸ™‚ You guys are my online sisters. Whenever I am in the woods behind my house and pretend I am in Narnia, I will think of you guys.
        HAVE A VERY HAPPY CHRISTMAS!!!

      • Princess Jennifer says:

        Yeah, It"s ok. My parents don"t like me meeting people if they aren"t in person either. Well, At least we can talk right ? I am very happy that I am able to talk to you two and everytime I go out to my woods I will remember both of you and pretend we are together, with Lucy, and All the other Narnian creatures. Have a Merry Christmas !!! It is Christmas Eve Eve !!! lol !!!

      • Not Of This World says:

        To Princess Jennifer: Darwin is the guy who came up with evolution.

      • Edmund's Queen says:

        To Princess J: Charles Darwin came up with the idea of evolution, you know, man evolving from apes and throwing out the truth that God created man. It’s not a good thing.

        I love you both so much! I’m not allowed to share personal info either. I really should start that blog. Are you guys homeschooled? I am. I know that was random, but I was just curious.

        A very Merry Christmas to you both! I may or may not be able to get on tomorrow; lots of cooking for Christmas, you know how it is. I love you!

      • Princess Jennifer says:

        Oh, I should have known that !! I AM Homeschooled !!! I can"t believe you are too !!! Cool !!! I probably won"t be writing alot tommorrow because I have to cook. Christmas. I LOVE it though !! Well, I guess maybe the day after Christmas or so I will write back. Sorry. I will try to write back ASAP!! Merry Christmas !!!! I hope you get everything you want !!!

      • Princess Jennifer says:

        When do you think you or Queen Elizabeth will write back ? Just curious. I will try hard to write again tommorrow. Merry Christmas too both of you !!! I Love you two !!!

      • Queen Elizabeth says:

        I am not homeschooled, but I go to a very small school, my highschool only has 250 students in all. My little village is out in the middle of no where πŸ™‚

      • Edmund's Queen says:

        OMG, I can hardly believe you’re homeschooled, PJ! (sorry about the nickname, I had to abbreviate) Queen Elizabeth, your school sounds cool, as well as your little village out in the middle of nowhere. I’m in the middle of nowhere too. I might be able to get back to you tomorrow, but if not, probably the day after Christmas. I’ve looked into creating a blog and it looks pretty simple. I’ll notify you when I have it up and runnin’.

      • Michael says:

        I am a Christian, and I’m homeschooled. I hope to play the role of Shasta if they make HAHB. That would be my main opportunity to share the gospel. I’ve always wanted to talk to some of my favorite actors about Jesus, and share the gospel with them.

      • Princess Jennifer says:

        OMG !!! There are a LOT of Christians on here !!

        To Edmond"s Queen: It is so cool that you are homeschooled too !!!! That is so awesome !! I still can"t imagine how much you,me and Queen Elizabeth have in common !!!

        To Queen Elizabeth : Public schools are cool !! And since there aren"t too many , it"s sort of like homeschool !! Sorry, I"m not very bright in words. Merry Christmas !!

        Merry Christmas !!!!

      • Queen Elizabeth says:

        What do you want For Christmas Edmund"s Queen ? What ever it is, I really hope you get it !!!! I hope you get your poster too Queen Elizabeth !!! Merry Christmas !!! Long Live Narnia !!! Happy Christmas eve !! LOL !!!

      • Edmund's Queen says:

        Okay my wonderful sisters, here’s some facts on me:

        I want the extended edition of Lord of the Rings REAlly bad for Christmas.
        Edmund, Aslan, and Glimfeather are a few of my Narnian favs.
        My favorite color is royal purple right now, but it changes a lot, lol.
        I love to write stories snd songs, draw and paint, and act.
        "The Call" is my favorite song.
        I love peanut m and ms.
        I play the guitar, mandolin, and piano.

        Well, there’s a start. Queen Elizabeth, when I went to the treater to see VDT, they gave free movie posters! I have an extra and I wish I could send it to you.

      • Edmund's Queen says:

        Elizabeth and Jennifer, I hope you guys get your Narnia stuff tomorrow and I hope you’ll get snow. We’re supposed to where I live, but it’s looking pretty sunny right now. πŸ™ Oh, and do you think we should adopt Michael and Not of This World as our Narnian brothers? I like them a lot.

      • Princess Jennifer says:

        COOL !!! Royal Purple is so pretty !!! I also LOVE Aslan too !!! Far as letting Michael and Not of this world join hmmmmmm…… I would Like it to stay just girls….But I really don"t care.. The more the Merrier !!! And besides, if a jerk like "handsome" comes back, they can be our body guards !!lol !! Yes, I think they can join !!!Thanks for asking !!!

      • Michael says:

        Thanks girls!! I didn’t even ask for anything.

      • Queen Elizabeth says:

        I already feel like Not of this World and Michael are my Narnia brothers πŸ™‚ They are truely worthy to be kings of Narnia lol Just like we are Queen and Princesses πŸ™‚

      • Queen Elizabeth says:

        To Edmund’s Queen: Thanks for the thought about the poster πŸ™‚ Appriciate it.
        My favorite song is The Call too! I love singing it and playing it on the piano. I can play by ear but can’t read music. I act in my church dramas, and am an artist. I paint all the time and just did a watercolor of Aslan, and it turned out really good. If I don’t become a director my whole family says I should be an artist, maybe do some concept art for movies, like NARNIA!!!
        Merry Christmas!!! πŸ™‚

      • Edmund's Queen says:

        Welcome to the family, Not of this World and Michael! Elizabeth, I wish I could see you Aslan watercolor. I like to draw dragons and griffins and fairies, and I’m learning to draw more (hopefully centaurs too!) It is absolutely insane how much we have in common! I love it. I had a cute idea today: Build-a-Bear Workshop should have a Reepicheep you can make! Wouldn’t that be so cute? Your own personal Reepicheep to cuddle, just like Lucy did. I’m so glad they kept that part in the movie.

      • Queen Elizabeth says:

        My sister wanted the Reepicheep plush for Christmas!:) I got an eisle and tons, *freaking out, TONS of paint and drawing stuff, i’m so happy!!!!! πŸ™‚

      • Edmund's Queen says:

        OMG, Queen Elizabeth, I got art stuff too! I got a dragon painting and drawing kit, and some oil pastels and book on how to use them. And a got a bracelet with a paint pallet charm on it!

      • Edmund's Queen says:

        Oh, BTW, I did get the movies I wanted. πŸ™‚ So happy! And it snowed all day long, and it’s still snowing now! Did your sister get the Reepicheep she wanted?

      • Princess Jennifer says:

        I love to draw and paint and carve narnian pictures too !! ( Not that I"m any good at it. Lol !! ) But I forgot to tell you, but I got a big marble Aslan !!! He now guards our woods !! He is sitting and about 3 feet tall. Actually, he is not marble, he is concrete. Like a birdbath.

      • Queen Elizabeth says:

        No she didn’t get Reep πŸ™ And Princess Jen that lion sounds SWEET! I just got some canvases and some oil paint and acrylics. Suggestions on what to paint? I kind of want to do this one movie still from VDT of Lucy and Aslan in the mirror in the cabin on the ship. Any other suggestions?

      • Edmund's Queen says:

        Okay, the concrete Aslan sounds so delightful (I just feel like using odd words today ;)) Now, about what to paint, I would attempt the Dawn Treader itself. I plan to paint one to put in my future room of my own. Or perhaps Cair Paravel, a centaur, Fledge, or the scene from LWW where Aslan is talking to Edmund. And Princess Jennifer, I’m not much good at drawing either, but I do it anyway because it’s fun and expressive.

      • Queen Elizabeth says:

        I’m about halfway done with the Scrubb house Dawn Treader painting. It actually looks really good πŸ™‚ I can’t wait to put it up. My dad said it looks really real πŸ™‚ I have to paint a picture for this art competition next so I’m probably going to do an angel or a moon fairy.

      • Princess Jennifer says:

        Sorry Queen Elizabeth, I just got this. I bet it does look really cool !! That sounds so neat !!! I am actually worse at painting, then drawing……Sorry. I wish I could see your picture. Better yet, I wish you could go into Narnia through your picture !!! I will draw a picture of the dawn treader too !! Far as ideas hmmmmm I got an idea !!! You could paint Cair Parravael !!! I think that would be cool !!! I have an announcement to make !!! Tommorrow ( probably )nI am going to see the VDT movie !! I can"t wait !!

      • Edmund's Queen says:

        That’s awesome Queen Elizabeth! I did my first oil pastel picture yesterday. It was simple, a bowl of oranges and lemons, but I’m going to improve my skills in order to artfully portray the Dawn Treader, a dragon, and some elves and fairies.
        Princess Jenifer, you will LOVE the movie. It is astounding. And Edmund is so brave, hot, and smart, as usual. I sighed half the time I watched it. I was literally bouncing in my seat when the movie started. OMG, I’m gonna have to go see it again soon!

      • Queen Elizabeth says:

        I’m so happy for you Princess Jennifer πŸ™‚ I thought I was going to get to see it this week but I guess not πŸ™ But I’m having a couple friends over and will finally be able to film and direct the legendary Lucy in Narnia for the first time (scene) in the woods behind my house. I have the music and everything. I posted my Dawn Treader painting on Facebook and got tons of great comments. πŸ™‚
        Edmunds Queen: I love drawing fairies too! πŸ™‚ I actually ot a book on how to paint different fairy types for one of my presents this year πŸ™‚

      • Not Of This World says:

        I’m homeschooled too!

      • Queen Elizabeth says:

        I post all of my art on my facbook page. I wish I could tell you guys my real name so that you can see it and I can see you guys! πŸ™ Then we could actually chat on real time. You guys are my best Narnian friends. If I ever were to talk about this stuff and Edmund with other people they would think I was crazy. You guys are so cool! πŸ™‚

    • Hannah says:

      That sucks !opps am I interrupting anything?

      • Edmund's Queen says:

        Nope. You’re fine. Yeah, it’s too bad about Skandar. But maybe if we all pray…
        Oh wait, were you talking about him being the great grandson of Darwin? If so, that doesn’t bother me too bad. He can’t help who his ancestors are.

  • Youngest Narnia fan says:

    I have been a fan before I can remember! Thew day I was born my brothers and sisters said what the Dryad said to Reepicheep over his cradle. πŸ™‚ i AM II KNOW AND STILL LOVING IT! I think the scubba lessons were cool.

    • Princess Jennifer says:

      I thought I was the youngest Narnia fan here !!!! I am releaved that I am not the youngest. At least, I hope. How old are you ? I am 12. I will be 13 in Sept. I am dying to join the teen club.

      You can’t wathch if your not in the US so I guess you move to the US if you really want to see it.

  • Feather~Light~Heart says:

    I’m in the US and it seems I can’t view it :\ Can this be found anywhere else????

  • Yvy says:

    I wish someone uploads it on youtube. I’m not from the States and I’d love to see this clip!!!!

  • LiquidLight says:

    Whoa! Beyond cool! I’m hoping to be a filmmaker someday, and the sheer ingenuity of this scene is incredible! Yet another reason to love the movie! I do hope they’ll make the rest of the franchise!

  • Amanda says:

    Do you guys all realize that Skandar Keynes says he’s an Athiest??? If u didn’t know that…. well, now you know! But ya, Ed is my favorite character, then its Lucy, Peter, Caspian, and Susan!!! <3
