‘Narnia Trilogy’ Box Set Coming April 27

Since Disney still owns the first two Narnia films, fans have been wondering if a 3-movie box set would be possible. It appears the legal issues have been sorted out. The ‘Narnia Trilogy’ box set will be available in France on DVD and Blu-ray on April 27.

The word “trilogy” might spook fans who are hoping The Voyage of the Dawn Treader will not be the last Narnia film. It has been in theaters for two months now, and still no word from Fox or Walden about the future of the series. Keep checking back…

Thanks to Narnia France for the alert.

    Well people (including myself) say what they think, but then usually about three or four people reply with comments like "how could you say that about a NARNIA movie!!!!!" It's rather tiresome.

  2. Aslan's Girl says:

    I gotta say, right before I went to Narniaweb my brother and I were discussing; I was like, we aren't actually sure if they're going to make Silver Chair… I went to Narniaweb and my heart dropped to the floor when I saw the title! But I'm feeling better about it, now that glumpuddle said not to let it spook us! πŸ™‚ I agree with a lot of the commentors above; SC should come next, and then HHB. I definitely feel that MN and LB should be right beside each other, because prequel and endquel (yes, I did just make that up on the spot) go hand in hand in this series; so much Christian symbolism in both, and breaking it up would throw off the viewers. Also, the more we can postpone MN, the better-I want the effects to be ASTOUNDING! And, it seems that HHB is a very popular book among fans-probably 2 or 3 overall, after LLW and VDT-ish(don't anybody eat me over that. I confess I could be wrong!!) Anyway, if HHB rings in a lot of moolah, then the effects will be cooler in MN! Because you know there's going to have to be a lot. But I definitely want SC next, before Eustace grows too much! Remember, he's gotta be a school boy in SC!

    Hmmm… what else was I going to say?? I suppose I'll wrap up since either I didn't have anything else important or I forgot (likely the former) To sum up…

    Long Live Narnia! And Long Live Aslan!!

    Totally !! I know that whenever I say stuff like this, I usually get nasty comments saying how " I don't care about Narnia " or something like that. It drives me crazy !! I know that I am bold, and usually don't say the right things, but I think it's good for Walden and Fox to understand, that I think they are ruining the books for others. I do think this is serious.

    April 27th is my birthday!!! Sweet! πŸ˜€

  5. Little Lu* says:

    Listen (or look !!), personally HHB is not my favorite,I have not read it but once when my mom read the series to me when I was little and HHB one was my least favorite then so I haven't read it since. But HHB is not why I'm writing, I'm wirting to say that they should do SC because Aslan promised or at least nearly promised that Eustace would come back to Narnia so why wouldn't they continue and bring Eustace back since VODT got good box office rates!??!?! And yes I agree Will Poulter did an Excellent portrayal of Eustace!

  6. Anhun says:

    I know I've already said this, but it bears repeating: There is absolutely no reason why they need to rush production of SC for Will Poulter's sake.

    1. He's already had his growth spurt. Physiologically speaking, he's an adult. If the fear is that he'll be too old to play Eustace as the little kid he is in the book, well, sorry to say, he's *already* much too old for that. In fact, if you believe in Hooper's timeline, he's 9 years older than Eustace in SC, and he looks it. The best they can do is pass him off as a high schooler.

    2. Because he's already done about as much growing as he's going to do, he's past the phase where people age dramatically in a few years. He's not going to look all that different 4 or 5 years from now. They can easily fit in another movie (HHB! HHB!) between VDT and SC.

    *sighs* aslanscountry.com is reporting that the trilogy won't be available in the U.S…

    @Shelly: LOL, and the Hermit turns out to be none other than Father Christmas!

  9. Anhun says:

    If the last scene doesn't leave tears in your eyes, then there's no hope for you. πŸ˜›

  10. Anhun says:

    I would be shocked beyond words if Disney doesn't get a cut.

  11. Anhun says:

    @Snicket: Did you read the book? Lucy has a cameo, but Edmund and Susan have key supporting roles, Edmund in HHB is similar in importance (and page time) to Tumnus in LWW. Speaking of which (NOT witch!) we also see the return of Tumnus, a popular character played by an increasing popular actor. Also there are a number of Pevensie scenes that are left off-page in the book (the escape of the Splendour Hyaline, the stag at Cair Paravel, etc.) that I think they should show on screen in the movie. It would be more cinematic that way, it wouldn't be unfaithful to the book, and it gives the movie fans more time with their beloved actors.

  12. Queen Helen says:

    Absolutely, and what about star wars? The last/first 3 were known as the star wars β€˜trilogy’ and hey they’ve doubled the amount of movies since then.

  13. Anhun says:

    @Not of this World: actually I don't believe they would. If you believe Hooper's time line, the 3 older Pevensies are in their mid-20s and Lucy is in her early 20s. Anna and Will (if they want a cameo of him riding off to fight the giants) are already in their mid-20s, so that's not an issue.

    For purposes of character fidelity, it is never explicitly stated in the book how old the Pevensies are or how long it's been since they defeated the White Witch, the only material point is that they are all young adults. Skandar is already a young adult, and he looks older than his 19 years. Georgie is in her mid-late teens, and it's the easiest thing in the world to style a girl that age to look like a young woman. They do it in the fashion industry all the time.

  14. Braden Woodburn says:

    Oh this is so awesome! I have the first two already on DVD! Having all three all renewed into a package like this would be even greater! If they do continue with these films, I am sure there will be a whole 7 disc set just like how you can get the books in a complete set! Mannn I do hope The Silver Chair gets announced to be filmed soon! Yay Narnia.

  15. Not Of This World says:

    In movies, they usually have older kids play younger roles. Plus they don't look old enough yet. They need a couple more years to grow and get older.

  16. Not Of This World says:

    Also the way Lewis described them makes them seem older then the actors are right now.

  17. Praying Pevensie says:

    What on earth are you talking about ?

  18. Raeley says:

    Does this mean that the usa will get the Trilogy set on April 27th as well?

  19. Kim says:

    HONESTLY…. which sequels do well without their main characters? Uh none really
    I think you could do a 3 hour movie that completes the series! Usingthe pevensies and caspian ect…you could always have parts of a HHB in there and comPlete the series with the big stories. But the last battle must be done. Get a good writer that can do that and you would have a phenomenal ending and satisfactory to all of us, because honestly there is no way the rest can financially survive! Have one last movie and tie it all in! That would make a huge killing at the box office! Then before that have a narnia day where you watch the first three and end with the The Last Battle! Which would include compilations of the otter books!
    That's my 2 cents!

  20. Anhun says:

    The scene where the kids leave Narnia.

  21. Aww πŸ™ I would really like to hear your imput. Tell me exactly what happens when you try to comment, and maye The Other Pevensie Girl can help me out, I had that problem with her blog for a while. If it still doesn't work and you want to comment to me, just comment on here πŸ™‚

    Too Bad That Americans Are Not Getting The Narnia Trilogy Set?
    What About India ?

    And Official Pruduction Budget Of Narnia VODT Is 140 Million $

  25. Praying Pevensie says:

    That would be great !! Thanks for your help I will comment at least on here if I can. What happens, is I write a comment, then The ask for something of a google account. Then. they won't let me comment unless I make one !!

  26. High Queene Shelly Belly says:

    hey this is off topic- sorry- but im desparate- just heard a christian song that sounded EXACTLY Like dave matthews band- but kept saying "changing neighborhoods" anyone know who or what the song is? thanks.

  27. High Queene Shelly Belly says:

    ne we def. are not- official

  28. puddleglum32 says:

    i have no clue.

  29. Not Of This World says:

    Cha Cha Cha!!!

  30. reepicheep's_fangirl says:

    really?! is there some kind of website(s) that will keep me updated???? i know a lot of ppl hated Percy Jackson 1, but i saw it before i read the books, so i liked it. Even after i read the books, i still liked it, actually, it's just annoying how many important things they left out. πŸ˜›

  31. Hwin says:

    I am quite all right if it is only in France (since I happen to not live there), and also I already have the first two so I do not think buying them all in one set would be necessary. It could be nice and handy in a way, however.

  32. Anhun says:

    I thought Anna in VDT looked old enough to play Susan as she's described in HHB. Really she (the character) could be anywhere in her 20's. As for Lucy, it surprised me to hear that she was supposed to be 22 in HHB, because the book made her sound more like late teens. She is described as a girl, contrasted with Susan the woman. She is seen as being closer to an equal to Aravis, rather than a mentor type. Then again, Lewis wasn't all that big on consistency.

  33. Not Of This World says:

    I just don't think they're old enough yet. In a couple years I think they will.

  34. High Queene Shelly Belly says:

    I wouldn't exactly characterize this as " intentionally misleading"- like a vicious, underhanded ploy-

    there are three films that tie in together, so here they are packaged together. It's just marketing strategy, not like they are "pulling one over on us".

    no need to be so suspicious, in this case. I understand though, you feel burned in other aspects.

  35. High Queene Shelly Belly says:

    I wouldn't project "malicious intent" on it, in other words.

  36. Arvan says:

    Not of This World, it'll be a couple years before we see SC, and by the time they get to HHB (if they do), Georgie Henley will be a young adult. I wouldn't worry about that. As for the others looking too young still, it sounds like you've only seen them as they are in the films. William Moseley and Anna Popplewell are PLENTY old enough right now. They made them look much younger in the last two films with makeup and hairstyling.

  37. Arvan says:

    Well said, Anhun!

  38. narniafreak13 says:

    what exactly do you mean by "kiddy marketing"?

  39. narniafreak13 says:

    Just saying, IMHO I think that it would be almost impossible to combine the rest of the books into one movie. The movie would be terrible!

  40. narniafreak13 says:

    I'm sorry, Snicket, but reading the rest of the comments on this page, how can you think that HHB is the worst book to adapt? It is one of my favorites, and so many other people's.

  41. narniafreak13 says:

    I just got really hopeful! Thank you!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  42. narniafreak13 says:

    I know the end of the movie made me cry. My friend came to see the movie with me, and she hadn't read the book. I started crying for like 5 minutes and she looked at me funny but I didn't mind.(it was for Reepicheep)

  43. narniafreak13 says:

    the other stories are just as good, you can't just say that

  44. Making a google account is really easy, and not a big deal. My whole class had to do it so we could all be able to e-mail each other for assignments. You don't have to give out personal info or anything I don't think.

  45. Anhun says:

    While I agree that prequels are popular, how many of them relate to franchises where everyone dies at the end?

  46. TheValiantLucy says:

    Oh my! Good, because I am in dire need of a new LWW DVD. I just hope I can wait until April!

  47. Praying Pevensie says:

    They ask for your e-mail address, which, as social as I am, I don't want to give out. My dad was justing warning us about a virus. I know, I am probably making a BIG deal into this, and I'm sorry. I just, don't want to get alot of e-mails from Google, or get a big bill on the internet.

  48. Insurrbution says:

    Warner Bros. every time a new HP movie comes out…

  49. High Queene Shelly Belly says:

    somebody said it might be big daddy weave

  50. High Queene Shelly Belly says:

    try listening to the family radio theatre cd's of the chronicles, thay may help you enjoy the others more. almost like a great movie version.

  51. Not Of This World says:

    Well it looks like we are just going to have to agree to disagree.

  52. Sub says:

    LWW and Voyage were the best stories in the seven. HHB has potential for a big screen epic but the others are a bit meh.

  53. Sub says:

    That's a good idea. I'll try that.

  54. High Queene Shelly Belly says:

    sure, at this rate, why not? LOL

  55. High Queene Shelly Belly says:

    but the rule is, ya gotta fit tilda in each movie somewhere-

  56. Narnian Meerkat says:

    Cooooooool. . .it looks so pretty! And rich. Kinda like the Lord of the Rings. But, too bad I can't get it. . .I already have the first two!

  57. Glimfeather says:

    They have to release an Extended Edition,I mean this is the first fox film to achieve 100 million after along time and they cuted like 30 minutes.

  58. Edmond's Queen says:

    trilogy? i dont get it! i know there are only three vidios, but there WILL be more, if there's not not very many people will like me much!!! but, anyway, there will be exactly 7 movies, because thats how many books there are. but if they do like harry potter and split it up to make it MORE like the move instead of cutting stuff out, im ok w/ that.

  59. Edmond's Queen says:

    i ment more like the book, srry…
