That Scene Where Caspian Wanted to Kill Drinian | Talking Beasts New

Posted October 16, 2017 5:00 am by Glumpuddle 5 Comments

We’re checking in with The Silver Chair Reading Group in the NarniaWeb Forum again. Twigs and Glumpuddle go over some of the discussion questions and dig through notable posts. Why didn’t Jill simply write the signs down? How will the owls speak in the movie? Why did Lewis include the moment where Caspian decides not to kill his friend?

Today is #NarniaDay New

Posted October 16, 2017 3:30 am by Glumpuddle 9 Comments

Fans around the world are using the hashtag #NarniaDay on social media, 67 years after the publication of The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe (October 16, 1950).

“‘The Lion all began with a picture of a Faun carrying an umbrella and parcels in a snowy wood. This picture had been in my mind since I was about sixteen. Then one day, when I was about forty, I said to myself: ‘Let’s try to make a story about it.’”
– C.S. Lewis

Mark Gordon on “The Next Series” of Narnia Movies

Posted October 6, 2017 1:59 pm by daughter of the king 16 Comments

Red Carpet News TV interviewed producer Mark Gordon at the premiere of Molly’s Game during the Toronto International Film Festival. You can view the brief interview here. 

“We’re starting the new series of Narnia books, The Silver Chair,” Gordon said. “We have a wonderful director, Joe Johnston, very, very talented man. And I think that the last movie’s been about ten years ago, and so I think we have an opportunity to reinvent it with wonderful actors and an interesting setting. The world of visual effects has been much more sophisticated then it’s been in a long time, and we think the next series of movies are going to be great.”

PG-13 Narnia Movies? | Talking Beasts

Posted October 2, 2017 5:00 am by Glumpuddle 33 Comments

“Let there be wicked kings and beheadings, battles and dungeons, giants and dragons, and let villains be soundly killed at the end the book. Nothing will persuade me that this causes an ordinary child any kind or degree of fear beyond what it wants, and needs, to feel.”
– C.S. Lewis, On Three Ways of Writing for Children

So far, the Chronicles of Narnia movies have tried to remain “family-friendly,” though a few scenes have toed the line between PG and PG-13. What will happen in future films? Listen to the discussion and then post a comment!

The Silver Chair is Mark Gordon’s Next Project?

Posted September 12, 2017 11:57 am by The Rose-Tree Dryad 15 Comments

In 2015, it was announced that The Silver Chair producer Mark Gordon and Entertainment One (eOne) had formed a partnership, and a recent article in Variety discusses this partnership’s first film headed to the silver screen: Molly’s Game, an acclaimed, based-on-a-true-story drama centered around an underground poker game. The article also offers some insight into the general vision for the company and its next project, which Narnia fans will likely find encouraging as we wait for further news on The Chronicles of Narnia: The Silver Chair:

The goal is for Gordon’s group to produce anywhere from two to four films a year. The company thinks that “Narnia: The Silver Chair,” a revival of C.S. Lewis’ “Chronicles of Narnia” film series, will be its next project.

While the article suggests that Mark Gordon will be “venturing into big-budget fantasy territory” with The Silver Chair, this quote from Gordon also indicates the diversity of eOne’s projects:

“The great thing about eOne is that because they are so strong in terms of their distribution operations, we are developing and making films that are anywhere from $5 million to $150 million. There are no particular dos and don’ts as far as what movies to make. We just want them to be creatively strong, commercial pictures with an accent on quality.”

Thanks to ‘Bartek’ for the alert.
