15th Anniversary of “The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe” Movie
NarniaWeb is commemorating the 15th anniversary of The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion the Witch and the Wardrobe, which first hit theaters in the United States on December 9, 2005.
This anniversary is particularly notable for Narnia nerds because, according to C.S. Lewis’s timeline, the four Pevensies reigned at Cair Paravel for 15 years.

To reminisce about the movie, we interviewed Anna Popplewell (Susan) for an upcoming episode of Talking Beasts: The Narnia Podcast.
Here is a short clip from the conversation in which Anna recalls the pressure of living up to expectations:
