Anna Popplewell Cast in Interactive Movie “The Gallery”

Anna Popplewell, who portrayed Susan Pevensie in Walden Media’s Chronicles of Narnia films, has been cast as lead actress in the upcoming interactive film The Gallery, according to a report by Deadline.

The hostage-thriller film offers two narratives, one through the eyes of a female protagonist in 1981 and another through the eyes of a male protagonist 30 years later. It’s reported that the movie will be released both as a linear version for film festivals and an interactive version for online streaming platforms.

Last December, Talking Beasts: The Narnia Podcast interviewed Anna Popplewell about her experience playing Susan Pevensie in the Chronicles of Narnia films. Listen here.

As interactive films continue to grow in popularity, do you think Netflix should consider this storytelling device for Narnia? Share your thoughts on the discussion forum or in the comments below.

    It took me way too long to realize that the woman in the screencap was Anna! THAT WIG.

      It took me a few seconds as well! It doesn’t help that the wig is causing a shadow across the top of her face in this photo that makes her harder to recognize.

    I would be more interested in an open-world Narnia video game. I want to take a hike through the shuddering wood, past the dancing lawn, up to vist Anvard and Stormness head. I might even stop to for quick bite with Duffle and Bricklethumb. That’s the interaction I want.

      I have been dreaming of a Narnia virtual reality experience for a long time!

      Something like that would give Breath of the Wild a run for it’s money imo

        YES!!! We need a good Narnia open world game, we got a game way back when (I think it was for PS2 and Wii U) but I haven’t heard anything about it… I guess that tells me how good it was. Anyway, a well built Narnia Open World game (like Breath of the Wild, Minecraft etc.) now I would play that, are there any rumors on one?
