The Silver Chair Screenwriter David Magee Is Writing Script for Hans Christian Andersen Musical

Posted March 1, 2018 2:34 pm by The Rose-Tree Dryad 5 Comments

The Chronicles of Narnia: The Silver Chair screenwriter David Magee has another project in the works. Deadline is reporting that Magee has written the script for an untitled musical fantasy about the author Hans Christian Andersen, with lyricist and composer Stephen Schwartz penning the music.

Last October, we heard from The Silver Chair director Joe Johnston that they were still working on the script for the upcoming Narnia film.

Since The Snow Queen is one of Andersen’s most popular fairy tales and features an icy and dangerous ruler, it’s possible that Narnia fans will find something in the new musical franchise that is reminiscent of The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe. Some readers have speculated that C.S. Lewis may have drawn inspiration for the White Witch from Andersen’s fairy tale, since the beautiful Snow Queen also arrives on a sleigh wearing a white fur coat and kidnaps a young boy:

New Documentary Series: A Hobbit, A Wardrobe, and A Great War

Posted December 16, 2017 1:03 pm by The Rose-Tree Dryad 10 Comments

A new documentary series about C.S. Lewis and J.R.R. Tolkien is in the works. Produced by the non-profit film production company Eastgate Creative and scheduled for release in November of next year, A Hobbit, A Wardrobe, and A Great War explores the friendship of the two authors, their experiences during the First World War, and the impact of the war on their lives, their faith, and their imaginations.

Based on Joseph Loconte’s New York Times bestseller, the film examines how Tolkien’s combat experience during the First World War—at the Battle of the Somme—launched him on his literary quest. The film reveals how the conflict reinforced Lewis’s youthful atheism—he was injured in combat—but also stirred his spiritual longings. The film traces the careers of both men at Oxford University, and their deepening friendship as they discover a mutual love of medieval, romantic literature. Facing the threat of another world war, Tolkien and Lewis reach back into their earlier experience of war as they compose their epic works of fantasy, The Lord of the Rings and The Chronicles of Narnia.

Georgie Henley to Make Professional Stage Debut

Posted December 7, 2017 2:26 pm by daughter of the king 6 Comments

According to, Georgie Henley will be starring in a new play, Angry by Philip Ridley at the Southwark Playhouse next year. The play is a set of monologues that will be performed by Henley and a male actor whose casting has not yet been announced.

The Southwark Playhouse’s website has a fascinating synopsis:

 A spaceship hurtles towards a black hole. A book-loving couple flee a burning city. A bloodshot eye conjures up kisses and wild animals. Angry is a menacing, magical, and darkly comedic collection of stories that vibrate with the lingering unease of our times.

Jack Silver, the Artistic Director of the producing company Tramp, said that he was expecting Henley to be good, but her auditions “absolutely blew us away”.

“She’s a major acting talent and I think audiences are going to be surprised at just how mature and versatile she is.”

Georgie Henley and Will Poulter Not Impressed with Ben Barnes’ Knife Skills

Posted December 4, 2017 9:30 am by Glumpuddle 16 Comments

There has been a lot of fun interaction between Narnia cast members Georgie Henley (Lucy), Skandar Keynes (Edmund), Ben Barnes (Caspian), and Will Poulter (Eustace) on Twitter recently. It started when Ben posted video of himself training with a knife for his role in Netflix’s The Punisher

Will Poulter: It’s just like Narnia except your sword is tiny

Georgie Henley: yeah was that knife given to you by Father Christmas on the instruction of a talking lion in order to save a magical land?? I think the furk NOT

Skandar KeynesThis sounds like a cause worthy of a reunion …?

Georgie Henley: [VIDEO]

Ben Barnes: Semi-reprising* grammar and spelling Willy!

Skandar Keynes: Coming from the man who couldn’t pluralise “barn”…

Georgie Henley: SAVAGERY

Will Poulter: You’ve captured me in my transformative role as a squirrel there. This was a side project I was shooting while working on Narnia. Boy, Squirrel, Dragon… there’s kind of no end to my range

Ben Barnes: I think you made me laugh for a full hour doing this!

Georgie Henley: you know what Ben that’s v unfair because it’s v hard to retaliate with bad pictures of you, you’re horrifically photogenic (HOWEVER I ALSO HAVE PICS OF THIS SQUIRREL MOMENT SORRY WILLY)

Georgie Henley: I STAND CORRECTED I’d forgotten what a good hairdresser I was at 12

We love you too, Georgie!
