Narnia Movie FAQ
Since 2003, NarniaWeb has been proud to provide the most accurate, up-to-date news and information about the Narnia films. Here are a few of the most common questions we’ve received about the films. If you don’t see the information that you are looking for, take a look around the rest of the site, search our news archives, browse the forum, or ask us a question.
We have recently learned that the seven year moratorium applies from film release to film release. ‘The Voyage of the Dawn Treader’ came out in December 2010, so the earliest we could possibly see ‘The Silver Chair’ is December 2017. We're not saying that's when it will release, but rather, we won't see it before then.
No, Walden Media will not be involved in any future Narnia films.
We don’t know. Obviously there are certain people from the previous movies we’d love to see return, like Liam Neeson as Aslan, but that will be up to The Mark Gordon Company and then the production crew to hire people back.
We’re quite a ways away from any casting news, but for those who are truly serious about auditioning for the movie, you have some time to start preparing. Here is a webpage from About.com with some excellent tips on how to pursue an acting career.
For ‘The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe,’ casting directors went to schools in the U.K. and held auditions for the roles of the Pevensies. We don’t know if the new production team will do the same thing for characters like Jill Pole, but it’s a good idea to get an agent to help you look into when and where auditions are being held.
Finally, we here at NarniaWeb do not have any involvement in the casting process. While we love hearing from our fans, we can't help you if you write to us asking how to get a part in the movie. If we do find out any news we can publicly share, we will post it on our front page news.
'The Lion Awakes' was going to be a film about the first half of C. S. Lewis's life. As it is now dissolved, keep a weather eye on upcoming announcements for another venture, Inklings-based as well, entitled 'The Oxford Inklings.'
