Official Movie Companion To Be Released
HarperSanFrancisco will publish The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe: The Official Illustrated Movie Companion (HarperSanFrancisco; Trade Paperback; $19.95; 192 pages), written by Perry Moore, the film’s Executive Producer.
On October 25, 2005, you will be able to read the only official behind-the-scenes book on the making of this holiday’s blockbuster adventure. This sumptuous and heavily illustrated book is the ultimate companion and charts the very personal story of how this project came to life.
Perry Moore has written an intimate book, revealing candid and personal stories about why he pursued this project, what intrigued him about the Narnia books, what challenges the filmmakers faced, how the movie was cast, and how it was filmed.
Going beyond the usual sound-bytes which constitute traditional “Making Of” books, this insider’s account allows for the real personality of the project and its people to shine through the pages.
Every spread is packed with major visual elements including movie stills, storyboard art and behind-the-scenes photos. These are accompanied by information about the back story, CGI breakthroughs, director’s comments, cinematography notes, interviews with cast, crew and more.
