No Narnia at Comic-Con?

The 2010 Comic-Con program schedule has been fully released today and there is an absence of anything Narnia related. Well, not completely. Barry Robison who is the Production Designer for The Voyage of the Dawn Treader will be part of a panel discussing production design in TV and movies.

1:00-2:00 Motion Picture and Television Production Designers— Motion picture and television production designers might take us to a 1930s prison break, a ’50s drag race, a ’70s disco, or even today’s Comic-Con. Or, like this year’s panel, they’ll take you to unknown worlds that beggar the imagination—fully realized worlds with alternate architecture, interior design, cars, weapons, and more. In collaboration with a multi-person, highly skilled art department, they will conceive, hire, supervise, and even try to stay on budget as they create whole new worlds of the imagination. Panelists include moderator John Muto (Terminator 2: 3D), Mimi Gramatky (10,000 Days), Barry Robison (The Chronicles of Narnia: The Voyage of the Dawn Treader), Kirk Petruccelli (Blade), and Oliver Scholl (The Time Machine).

The other place where there might be something for The Voyage of the Dawn Treader is at the Fox Home Entertainment booth, where in the past, Disney/Walden booths have handed out bookmarks and tote bags and things like that for The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe and Prince Caspian. So it may very well have some Narnia paraphernalia available there.

But it looks like we’re out of luck hoping for any new footage or interviews with the actors and crew members.

Anything and everything Comic-Con related can be found the official website here.

UPDATE: icarus also pointed out on the forum that HarperCollins will have a booth at Comic-Con as well. Another place to keep an eye open for something Narnia related.

UPDATE: It looks like Isis Mussenden and Oksana Nedavniava will be appearing (thanks to icarus, once again):

    Not a lot of Narnia at ComicCon. I met the production designer, the concept artist, and Richard Taylor today. All lovely and helpful. One in particular told me a tale of how they wanted to show their work in a panel so we could see the art and Fox told them no. Fox lied to them and said they had another panel to promote it. They didn't. When we were at the Fox both asking about VDT, one of the workers said, "Is that coming out this year?" Yeah. I'm not impressed.

    I'm still worried, but let's see how it goes. If the movie does REALLY well (which I hope it well), then here's hoping that they'll have a Narnia panel at CC next year.

    Thats disappointing to hear. You would of thought they could at least have put a poster or two up. Wouldn't of cost them anything, and could of been an invaluable marketing opportunity.

    Did you attend the Production Designers panel then? Any interesting information come out of that? Please say yes 🙂 Hahaha.

    Oh dear. That was a bit….out there.

  5. When I went on Sunday, they didn't have anything. One of the workers at the HarperCollins booth barely knew the name of it was [I had to remind him at least twice], and then remembered that they ran out of flyers on Thursday. One of the girls at Fox told me ask Warner Brothers or something, because she didn't know who was involved with the movie. Well, she was busy with the huge line of Glee people, but she obviously didn't know about Dawn Treader.
    Really, the only thing that made me in a relatively good mood was all of the Star Wars stuff….ha ha. 🙂

    Well, maybe it'll have a little bit of a presence at Dragon*Con in September? I know that's not nearly as big as Comic Con, but it's still a pretty big deal for exposure to fans of fantasy, etc.
