12 New Photos: Reepicheep On Set

Reep's stand-insTwelve more pictures are up at MundoNarnia.com, including a shot of Reepicheep’s stand-ins. My guess is that the more realistic stand-in is used for lighting reference, and the green one is what the actors interact with during the scenes. In post-production, the green stand-in will be erased, and then replaced with a computer-generated character (voiced by Eddie Izzard). Green and blue are often used for this because these colors are considered to be the “furthest away” from human skin tones, and so are easier for the computer to isolate and erase.

This first sighting of Reepicheep on set should excite fans, since his role in “The Voyage of the Dawn Treader” is what made him the fan-favorite of the series.

Most of the photos show Ben Barnes talking to the crowd through the gate, and if you look at the bottom/right corner of one of them, you’ll see Douglas Gresham (co-producer, C.S. Lewis’ stepson).

    and besides "reep" is easier to type! lol

  2. Kris says:

    Yeah same here! But I can see it being the type of scene they would cut out. I don't know why lol. There were alot of scenes in PC that I said I would freak out over if they weren't in the movie, and they weren't! (and yes I was true to my word and freaked out!) I could see them replacing it with something made up like they did alot in PC. BUT this is a different director so who knows!

  4. Aslan=Jesus says:

    Amen! I love your respect and awe for God, but he truly is our father. I think he loves to hear us say his name.

  5. Aslan=Jesus says:

    Does anyone know how much power Douglas Gresham has? I mean, can he say whether or not they can change things? It would seem he wouldn't have allowed alot of changes in the first 2 movies if he had any say in it.

    ha! Wow Ben Barnes has a narrow waist. Dude needs to eat more. 😉

  9. glumPuddle says:

    Yeah… It is such a memorable moment for those characters…

    But, yeah, I can understand why it might be cut out. It's one thing to write it… It's another to visualize it. Might come across as weird on film.

  10. glumPuddle says:

    I'll tell you what Reep wouldn't appreciate: Being made into a plush toy. 😉

  11. glumPuddle says:

    I mean it.

  12. glumPuddle says:

    Yeah, Reep was one of many cringe-worthy things in the BBC versions.

    I still think it's funny that Warwick Davis played Reep in BBC, and Nik in Walden's version.

    Jill; It's okay to write His name. Yes, He is someone we are to respect, but it is okay to write His name. Like Aslan's Meadow said; Jesus came and walked in our shoes, had the same temptations as we do, He was severely beaten, hated, and was put to death. He took the 'wages of sin' upon himself so that we can be children of God. And like Aslan=Jesus said; God is our Daddy. 🙂 Big D of course. So, don't be afraid that by writing His name that you are being disrespectful. 🙂 He loves you and wants to be acknowledged as God. 🙂 "Big G" God. 🙂

    Jill Pole, just one correction….. Aslan actally represents Jesus. Aslan had to fulfill the "deep magic" which required death. Same with Jesus; He also came to fulfill the 10 commandments' wages for sin, which also required death. C.S.Lewis used Edmund as an example of who we were before Aslan took His place. We were like Edmund…a traitor to God. We rejected His hope. But like Edmund, when we accept His (Jesus') sacrifice, we are fogiven. 🙂 I just thought I would clarify that….But I'm sure you already have make that connection. 🙂
