We have revamped the NarniaWeb podcast, now officially titled “Talking Beasts.” From now on, we will be posting every two weeks! Watch for our next episode on Monday April 17 (here and on YouTube).
In this episode: William Moseley is “100%” up for playing Peter again. How excited are you about that? He also seemingly announced that The Chronicles of Narnia: The Silver Chair will release in late 2018. Producer Douglas Gresham later told NarniaWeb he hopes for this, but it is not official. Glumpuddle, Mel, and Dot sort though the news and speculate about the three Narnia films that will hopefully follow The Silver Chair.

The Chronicles of Narnia: The Silver Chair is feeling more and more real as pre-production nears and the inclusion of a famous scene is confirmed. Rilian and Glumpuddle broadcast their reactions on Facebook Live last night. Listen to the recording and like us on Facebook if you’d like to be notified of future live events:
UPDATE: Here is the MP3 version:
A stage production of “The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe” by the Stratford Festival is currently running in Ontario, Canada, and a group of NarniaWeb forum moderators caught a performance. Listen to a few of them (Pattertwigs Pal, Meltintalle, and Ryadian) share their thoughts with an envious Glumpuddle.
The production debuted in May and will continue until November. View the official trailer:

For NarniaWebbers’ convenience, here is a downloadable version of our audio commentary for Disney/Walden’s The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe. Rilian, GymFan, and Glumpuddle (bios) discuss the film scene by scene and reminisce about the months leading up to its theatrical release.
To follow along, simply synchronize the timecode of your DVD*, Blu-ray, or digital file:
You can also listen on YouTube.

The word “reboot” is floating around the web in the wake of new comments from The Silver Chair Producer Mark Gordon. It should be noted that it was Collider.com, not Gordon himself, that used that word. What do people mean by “reboot”? Will the next film form another Narnia canon? We doubt it. Is it really confirmed that there will be completely a new cast? Listen to Rilian, GymFan, and Glumpuddle discuss the matter.
Gordon’s exact words were: “It’s all going to be a brand new franchise. All original. All original characters, different directors, and an entire new team that this is coming from.”
As part of the Narnia Watch Party event this Saturday, NarniaWeb podcasters Isaac McPheeters (Rilian) and Brian Carnell (Glumpuddle) will be live streaming a commentary on the film as they interact with the chat room. You are invited to log-in and post your thoughts on the film along with them.
The event begins this Saturday November 14 at 1:00pm EST. Have your DVD, Blu-ray or digital file ready and log-in to the NarniaWeb chat room! To access the chat room, go to the forum, log-in, and click “Member Chat” in the upper-left corner. Simple instructions for synchronizing your movie will be given.
The Mark Gordon Company announced they were developing The Silver Chair two years ago (October 1, 2013). Rilian and Glumpuddle reflect, and ponder other ways of adapting the fourth Chronicle of Narnia for the screen, such as a Netflix series or animation. What would you think about Narnia being on Netflix? Discuss!
Note: This episode was recorded before the latest update from Douglas Gresham.
We do not expect to see The Chronicles of Narnia: The Silver Chair hit theaters until at least 2017, but it is never too early to hope and dream. Rilian and Glumpuddle each share 3 things they would like to see in the film, and then read some desires other NarniaWebbers have sent in.
