Narnia Movie Stars to Appear in ‘Prop Culture’ on Disney+

A new trailer for Prop Culture briefly shows William Moseley (Peter), Anna Popplewell (Susan) and Georgie Henley (Lucy) from The Chronicles of Narnia movies.

“Feels a lot lighter,” Will says as he holds Peter’s shield. In a wider shot, Lucy’s dagger and cordial appear to be lying next to Georgie.

This looks to be the “really exciting” project that Georgie Henley teased last summer. In that same post, Georgie said that Skandar Keynes (Edmund) could not make it.

This trailer also includes Joe Johnston discussing Honey, I Shrunk the Kids (0:41). Johnston signed on to direct The Silver Chair movie in 2017 before it was cancelled.

All episodes of Prop Culture premiere on Disney+ on May 1. The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe and Prince Caspian movies are already streaming.

    On one hand, I’ll be sad if this is the big project she was talking about.

    On the other hand, I think it’s hilarious how much smaller the shield looks in adult William Mosley’s hand XD

    Also, I am surprised (and encouraged) that Disney thought Narnia is big enough to get featured in the show. In a way I am starting to wish Disney+ was going to take over instead of Netflix (partly because I do love the Narnian style of weapons and armor they created, and partly because it would be an almost for sure thing that they bring back the OG cast for HHB)

    I’m looking forward to seeing some of the Narnia props again! And, yes, the shield does look quite small.

  3. Glumpuddle says:

    Look at the clothes they are wearing in Georgie’s tease. Same clothes they are wearing in this trailer.

    “Next, Peter took down his gift—the shield with the great red lion on it, and the royal sword. He blew, and rapped them on the floor, to get off the dust. He fitted the shield on his arm and slung the sword by his side. He was afraid at first that it might be rusty and stick to the sheath. But it was not so. With one swift motion he drew it and held it up, shining in the torchlight.

    ‘It is my sword Rhindon,’ he said; ‘with it I killed the Wolf.'”

    This will be a cool reunion! 😀

    All I can think is right now is “Wow! Disney is actually acknowledging that the Narnia films exist which, until Disney+ happened, they seemed to ignore as soon as they ditched the franchise.”
    Still slightly disappointed if this is the “big project” Georgie was teasing. Really wanted them to refilm the adult scene of Narnia 1.

    I was not expecting to break down in tears after seeing just three seconds of this but it really hit home how long it’s been since the movies and how much I’ve missed the cast.
    Can’t wait to see them again :”)

  7. Cleander says:

    Agreed. This is definitely what Georgie was talking about. A bit disappointing that this isn’t something bigger, like refilming the last scene of LWW. Still, it’s good to see them back together again.
    (And that shield looks more like a buckler now! William has grown a lot!)

  8. Just Queen, not High Queen says:

    Also, I guess this is the closest we’ll get to a “Horse and His Boy” reunion in real time.

    Also, also, I still think they should refilm the adult scene from Narnia 1, but they don’t have to completely mimic it. Just have a stage with a lamppost and that would be enough!

  9. Carley says:

    I know, I felt the same way when I watched this. It makes me want to see them come back to Narnia one more time, like for Horse and His Boy or Last Battle.

  10. Charles Carpenter says:

    I love it, because one this kind of “making of the magic” content is more of what I want from Disney+. Two that they value the work on the Narnia films is awesome. I wish Disney saw the potential of exploring this world more.

  11. EH says:

    If I ever get Disney+, this will be the first thing I go to see. I’m glad that Disney didn’t forget completely about Narnia and I hope that the actors will get to do more Narnia-related things in the future.
    This reminds me of the Narnia Exhibition that they did ten years ago in Kansas City. I actually was able to go see that and see the props they had there. I wonder how many props this new episode will have.

    I don’t think Andrew Adamson will ever re-film the final scene from LWW. He’s not George Lucas. He would consider it disrespectful to the cast & crew who brought the first film to life, inculding the adult Pevensies’ actors. Also, nobody wants to retread George Lucas’s footsteps. Not even Peter Jackson. Not yet anyway. 😉

    If Walden had continued making Narnia films every 2-3 years, we’d be getting the final film this Christmas:

    LWW (2005), PC (2008), VDT (2010),
    SC (2013), HHB (2015), MN (2018), LB (2020)

    Sadly, I think that ship has sailed. 🙁

  15. JFG II says:

    I just realized something: If Walden – with Disney or Fox – had continued making Narnia films every 2-3 years like they were already doing, we would have been gotten Last Battle, the final Narnia film, this Christmas: 🙁

    The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe (2005)
    Prince Caspian: The Return to Narnia (2008)
    The Voyage of the Dawn Treader (2010)
    The Magician’s Nephew (2013)
    The Horse and His Boy (2015)
    The Silver Chair (2018)
    The Last Battle (2020)

    But I think it was for the best. Walden wanted to make MN instead of SC, so they would have to recast Eustace anyway. The later movies may not have been very good either. Also, Last Battle – regardless if it was at Fox or Disney – would have gone starait to Disney+ because of the pandemic – and some lame controversy. 🙂

  16. Frodo Lives says:

    ok 🙂 Also dude, you already wrote this? Peace.

    Personally, I think it wouldn’t be disrespectful if the cast & crew new in 2005 that they would probably come back to refilm that scene if they ever made Horse and His Boy. I’m sure that happened.

  17. Frodo Lives says:

    Well, yeah: Narnia switched from Disney to Fox in 2008. Then Disney bought Fox in 2018. So Narnia – under Fox – is now back at Disney – and at Disney+ – in 2020. That indeed would have been a strange back-and-forth to witness. 😉

    At least Disney would have been forced to put Dawn Treader on there as well, which, at this time, they are not doing – because it’s Fox. And unlike Narnia, they’re not merciful to traitors 🙁

  18. Keeper of Lantern Waste says:

    I don’t think LB would’ve gone to straight to Dinsey+. Black Widow and Mulan were pushed back, also this may sound weird, but I feel like LB would’ve been released in fall from the start? But I guess we can never know what would have happened…

  19. Keeper of Lantern Waste says:

    I don’t think it would be disrespectful, if anything I think the OG adult actors would think it’s really cool, however I am not an actress, so maybe there’s some taboo I’m not aware of?

    What I wish was going on is they re-film the ending with the bait being “Revisit Narnia with us!” and then announce the HHB movie/series with the OG actors. I know it would’ve been a *REALLY* long shot, but a girl can dream lol

  20. Col Klink says:

    I may be in the minority but I’m not disappointed that they aren’t doing a video where they reenact the scene in the LWW movie in which their characters were played by older actors. I mean such a video could be fun and interesting but it’s not something I need to see before I die. And they wouldn’t have had Skandar Keynes anyway. So…whatever.

  21. AslanNarnia says:

    0:41 Joe Johnston the director of The Silver Chair movie that never was!

  22. Just Queen, not High Queen says:

    It’s not replacing the scene. The original version will always exist. If they do it informally, it would be just a cool thing for the fans. And if they did it informally, Andrew Adamson wouldn’t necessarily have to direct it.
