Ben Barnes Loves Narnia Props

Posted January 3, 2011 9:06 am by DiGoRyKiRkE

According to bsckids.com, Ben Barnes loved his props from The Chronicles of Narnia:  The Voyage of the Dawn Treader so much, that he has had his own replicas made.  Barnes recently approached WETA workshops about making the replicas, and they followed through, making Ben a replica of Rhindon.  Barnes also asked WETA workshops make him a replica of the ring that he wears in the latest installment of the Narnia franchise.  You can read the story in it’s entirety, by clicking here.

    How did I know something like this would happen?

    I read this on the computer at my school library and gt stared at for laughing so hard. LOL

  • onedayit'llbeme says:

    Lol – he’s so lucky! I would love to see the reaction of the’intruders’ if he actually had to use it!

  • i.live.in.spare.oom says:

    i wish so bad that i could get some props from the movie.
    i really want mr. tumnus’s scarf and susan’s bow & arrow.

    • georgie henley luver22 says:

      i have a 1/6 scale model of Susans bow,arrows,quiver,and horn

      • Juzuma says:

        I haven’t got something like it,but I’m really happy,because it happened.

      • Juzuma says:

        I want to have Lucy’s red dress from second film. And Susan’s green dress in first film is also good. My sister wants to wear Lucy’s underdress from PC. It’s just like her!

  • LL says:

    I still want Edmund’s uniform scarf and hat from Prince Caspian!! LOL

  • narnian resident says:

    thats what i would do if i were ever in a movie like Narnia 🙂
    At the end of shooting The Return of the King director Peter Jackson gave each actor a prop that they had used as a gift, and not just replicas, but the real thing. Elijah Wood (Frodo) and Andy Serkis (Gollum) got their own One Ring (for the two people that had the ring in the movies 😉 ). this just reminded me of that, and i thought it was pretty cool 🙂

  • Caspian says:

    Hmm, so how does one approach WETA? 🙂 lol, I’m just kidding. Though that would be really neat. Why don’t they figure out that making replicas would bring in a lot of money for the franchise?

    • High Queene Shelly Belly says:

      they already made replica swords with the first movie- you can find them on the internet

  • kasey !! i love narnia says:

    thats cool good for him i hope i will get to meet him and the other cast one day!!!!

    • Xcaliber says:

      I do too. I might freak out if I do.

      That sounds just like Ben to ask for props like that! I must say…

  • C.J Ashling says:

    Caspian: My mum was in New Zealand early last year and they were selling off some of the smaller level props at the WETA store at the end of the tour of the company. Possibly check their website and you might be able to find something.
    Just a thought…

  • Annabeth says:

    is he, like, REALLY going to wear the ring or was he getting a replica made so he can…i dunno, sell it to a museum for way too much money or something?

  • High Queene Shelly Belly says:

    I can’t believe fox wouldn’t just GIVE him the props, geesh….

    • Talvi says:

      It’s Fox. They’re not known for being generous. >.< *doesn’t like fox much*
      … understatement.
      *doesn’t like Fox at ALL*
      … ahem, sorry about that.
      But still, that’s awesome that he wanted replicas, and I’m glad he got them! Go Ben! XD

  • reepicheep's_fangirl says:

    it’s cool that he likes what he’s doing so much. i think he did a better job in PC, though. in VDT his character was kind of shallow

  • Amanda says:

    Ben Barnes/Caspian is soo cool!!! I loved him the best in VDT, the best. He was totally awesome! Wow, that’s cool about this ring. 😉 I LOVE Narnia, specially Georgie and Skandar, Will and Ben. <3

    • Juzuma says:

      Me too! I loved Caspian in previous film… and it’s one from my two favourite films about Narnia. Second is new. Hey,do you know that older Narnian films are on Youtube? All BBC series,and the eldest series-LWW… There are two parts this second,but BBC maked also PC,VDT and SC! My second favourite character is Lu,and last is Ed. I can’t find the eldest series. Oh,there is also a cartoon-LWW too!

    • Juzuma says:

      And which Will? There are two Wills on the plan:Eustace and Peter… Tell me!

  • claireyy says:

    the cast are big fans of narnia too : )

  • Jill_Pole says:

    Amanda, especially Will for me 🙂

  • loverforben says:

    Thats really neat! I am kinda confused though. Once he gets the props where is he going to put them?

  • simplyphilly says:

    I wanna sword like dat! Nuff said.

  • Melly says:

    i think ben, will, and georgie are my favorite actors on the narnia MOVIES. anna does a good job playing susan but susan the character has always bothered me. lol.

  • Blackdog says:

    BENS makeing replicas I can’t make a replica unfiar.

  • Little Lu* says:

    I HAVE a true replica of Peter’s sword!!! My grandma took me yardsale-ing in her neighborhood and I found it!! Actual size and everything! It’s the coolest but it’s very dirty due to the conditions of it’s previous dwelling! It cost me 50 bucks but it looks SO cool hanging in my room!!!

  • Nancy Brown says:

    I would love to have susan"s bow and arrows. I was very good at archery. Also like so many others I would love to have the ring Caspian wore.

  • Peepicheep says:

    My friend has Peter’s sword!! He really likes it but he broke it then fixed it again, I wish I had something Narian.
