Rumor: New Characters in 3D Version

Get out those salt shakers, because Ain’t It Cool News delivers up a whopper of a rumor this morning. According to Harry, “…for the last 8 months, I’ve had a source telling me that the 3D on this film is going to blow people’s minds. I can’t say who, but I will say if they’re excited, I’m excited. I’ve heard rumors of characters you’ll only SEE in the 3D version of the film. And it makes the William Castle in me giggle for days.” You can read the whole article here. Thanks Griffle.

  1. That's…..kinda dissapointing 🙁 I don't know if my theaters are going to have 3d and if not, and this rumor is correct, I'll miss stuff 🙁 I guess we'll see.

      I think it's important to clarify that it's not like they subtracted characters from the 2D version. They're simply adding something to the 3D version.

      • Caspian says:

        This might actually be cool…strange things in the Magician's house, extra mermaids, invisible duffers. Hm. Not bad. 🙂 I'm still going for 2D.

      • Murtaghluv says:

        likely chance is that it will only be sgi characters who will be added. so for me at least i don't have to worry about not seeing Gael.

    • TumnusTheBrave says:

      thats really disappointing. it should be the same thing for both versions for people who like 2D or 3D.

      • Justin says:

        Considering the 3d version is like 5 bucks more, I somehow don't feel too slighted that there is added material in the 3d version. I'll probably see it in both, so it doesn't bother me particularly. This is probably nothing like extra scenes – more likely it's simply eye candy "characters" they're adding. That's assuming that there is anything to it at all.

    Best idea yet to get me to pay another $5-10… lol

  3. NarniaQueen411 says:

    WOw…awesome 3D…well all I can say is I CANT WAIT!!!!!! :D:D:D:D:D

  4. glumPuddle says:

    By "characters," I seriously doubt they mean characters with speaking parts. They mean a few extra dufflepuds to jump towards camera, or a few more soldiers to save their swords at you. That'd be my guess.

    • Eric says:

      I agree. It's probably just some minor, gimmicky shots.

    • Salem says:

      I think this will be the water spirit. On trailer we kinda don't saw the water spirit when it jumps out the water…

    • Silver the Wanderer says:

      Oh boy. I'm hoping that's the case. I really hope they're not talking about cheesy 3D effects…

    • Griffle says:

      I don't know, you're probably right, but when I read that, my first thought was that there will be characters in the film that will be more visible (or only visible) in the 3D version of the film. Anyway, the fact that Aintitcool's source claims that the 3D in VDT will blow our minds is great news. 3D conversion 3D rarely work as well as 3D in films that are shot with 3D cameras. Warner Brothers recently released a statement saying that the 3D conversion of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hollows Part I won't be ready in time for release and that the film therefore will be released in 2D exclusively. We can only hope that FOX will do the same thing should a similar situation occur with the 3D conversion of VDT.

    • Twinimage says:

      My thoughts as well.

    • wolfloversk says:

      You're probably right. BTW this is completely off topic, but can we still add the icons/ gravatars to our posts on the comments page and if so would you happen to know how to do that?

    • Bookwyrm says:

      I would hope that's all it is. I think adding additional content to the movie to get people to pay for 3D is pretty cheap, but considering their deceitful ad campaign, I guess we shouldn't be surprised.

  5. Eric says:

    Are you kidding me with this?

  6. Duffleglum says:

    I think you meant "wave" glumPuddle, haha

    I really feel this is going to be better than the last 2, after seing that int'l trailer!

  7. Millena says:

    Ok, there's no 3D on my city. I'll have to travel to watch it.
    What Narnia makes me to do…

  8. Eric says:

    Wait. This could mean more. Maybe all the information we have about the film thusfar only applies to the 2D version. Maybe the 3D version will actually honor the book.

    • Griffle says:

      Hehe…yeah,…sure. 😉

    • Shastafan says:

      Or maybe it's the 2D version that will honor the book, since new characters might draw it farther away from the book.

      Unless they figure out how to hide Rhince, Gael, or some other characters in the 2D version and put them in the 3D version, I doubt they're talking about this movie. It might just be more dufflepuds or crew, as someone above mentioned, but thank goodness this is a rumor, because there's a strong possibility it's not true. 🙂

    • lucy suan peter and ed says:

      no I don't think so…. I mean they just made up some thing in p.c but they were flary good in the loin the witch and the wardrobe.

  9. Louloudi the Centaur says:

    Interesting. But I probably won't see it in 3-D unless it is the only form available where I live. 3-D is getting to be too much of gimmick.

  10. The Rose-Tree Dryad says:

    Maybe there's still hope Ramandu will be in the film. 😛

  11. narnian resident says:

    ok…i think thats just rediculous

  12. thenarnia24 says:


  13. QueenLucy12 says:

    curious…about that piece of imformation, that could be true or not… ?????

  14. Casue says:

    Dude maybe the 3d will be epic Like Guardians of ga'hoole.
    Chill out people, the xtra charecters in the 3d is just a rumor

  16. narnia fan 7 says:

    Interesting vary vary Interesting.

  17. Bulgy Bear says:

    Presenting Ramandu! In 3D ONLY!!! 😀

    • Narnian Meerkat says:

      Wait, where'd you here that? Or are you just makeing that up? I'M CONFUSED!

    • wolfloversk says:

      OH NO!!! I hope they don't do that cause at this rate I won't be able to see it in 3-D and if they do that and I miss I don't know how I'd be able to live with myself.
      and I just severly messed up my computer uhoh….

  18. I guess I'll see both in 2d and 3d. Two months to go!

  19. Narnian Meerkat says:

    UGH?. . . .What kind of charecters? Dufflepuds? Mermaids? WHAT!?

    • Narnian Meerkat says:

      Waaaaait. . . .Are they saying 'hidden' charecters, or is there going to be like deleted scenes only in 3D?. . .

  20. Reepicheep775 says:

    Wouldn't it be nice if the White Witch was only in the 3D version?

  21. pselpevensie says:

    i'm gonna see the movie in both 2-d and 3-d…so i'm good 🙂

    • Omac the centaur says:

      As am I. lol my friends think im crazy cuz i can look at a clock and tell them to the min. when its coming out… LOL!

  22. Not Of This World says:

    I don't think they would do that. remember, this is a rumor.

  23. TrueNarnianWithWill says:

    If the rumour's true I guess i'll go once to see it in 2-d and then in 3-d 🙂
    Why not, it is Narnia after all 😉

  24. it is Narnia after all…..i can't wait for the movie to be on theaters!i am going to be a warrior not a crew….huh forget it!

  25. Queen Susan the Gentle says:

    This stinks. I have glasses and 3D is hard to watch with them… but I want to see the other characters… but I suppose it's only a rumor…
