Narnia Producer Perry Moore Found Dead

Posted February 18, 2011 10:03 am by Tirian

It is with great sadness that we report the news today that Narnia producer Perry Moore has died. He was found unconscious on Thursday morning from an apparent overdose and was pronounced dead shortly thereafter by paramedics.

Perry Moore was a producer on the Narnia films and especially involved with the production of the The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe. He was the author of the official movie companion. Since working on the Narnia films, he wrote and directed Lake City and authored a book ‘Hero’.

On a personal note, I’ve met Perry Moore several times and knew him as a fantastic human being: incredibly kind and thoughtful. He will be missed. Please join NarniaWeb as we offer our condolences to his family.

More from the New York Daily News.

    That is so sad to hear. The LWW companion book was so cool, and I distinctly remember opening it up for the first time and anxiously reading it. My prayers go out to his family in this difficult time.

    I pray that the Moore family finds peace within this time span. I also pray that Mr. Moore is in the care of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Heavenly Father, please allow those who will take on Mr. Moore’s job focus on pleasing you, and not themselves. Help them all Lord, in your son Jesus name we pray. Amen.

    I met Perry a few years ago in New York City when he was promoting his novel Hero. We got to talking about the adaptation sequence (the Harper Collins "chronological" order which placed The Magician’s Nephew first vs the publication order which placed The Magician’s Nephew sixth). He said there was never any discussion about which order to adapt the movies, and snubbed Harper Collins’ chronological order. Most hard core fans want the books in the order in which they were published, placing The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe first. But it’s interesting that he chose to go after The Magician’s Nephew fourth, as The Silver Chair is the next in line by publication. Not that it matters as far as the stories are concerned, as The Magician’s Nephew is technically a prequel and could be inserted just about anywhere, but I wonder why he chose it next.

    Just for record not everyone it take medications such is oxycontin is an addict. You have to really abuse type of medications to die from it. And if you do abuse it you will die from it.
