Very nice. . .

What Fox's Licensing Department was really trying to get toy manufacturers & t-shirt makers excited about was the fact that they were now working with Walden Media to produce the third film in "The Chronicles of Narnia" series, "The Voyage of the Dawn Treader." Which is expected to sail into theaters just in time for the 2010 holiday season.

Hollywood lines up to film in Australia - for now

Article from AdelaideNow.com.au:

AUSTRALIA is in the middle of the largest influx of big-budget Hollywood film production since the Star Wars prequels but the boom in "runaway production" could come under threat from a strengthening dollar.

Several big-budget films have been announced. They include the $150 million superhero film, The Green Lantern, which will be made in Sydney and the similarly-budgeted The Chronicles of Narnia: Voyage of the Dawn Treader in Queensland.

Caspian with facial hair?

I hope that title got your attention! :P

You want might want to have a look at this interview, in which Ben Barnes talks about The Voyage of the Dawn Treader from roughly 3:22 onwards. He has grown his hair down past his shoulders in readiness for shooting VOTDT, and. . . what's up with the whiskers? It would appear King Caspian will be sporting a beard, as well as the long hair, in the next Narnia film. You might think it's silly to be making all this fuss about it, but remember that in the books Caspian is kind of too young to even have a beard. . . :-/

Here are some recent photos of Ben promoting his latest film:

With co-stars Jessica Biel and Colin Firth. Seriously, that hair worries me. . .

An invitation. . .

Would any of you Narnia fans be interested in joining me as co-authors of this blog? I think it would be great to make this a team effort, rather than just me doing it on my own. It would make things a lot more colourful, and a lot less boring. :-)

If you're interested, let me know!

Aussie seals new Narnia film deal

Article from stuff.co.nz:

Most of the third film in the Narnia series is likely to be shot in Queensland - although it is still possible that some of The Voyage of the Dawn Treader could be shot in New Zealand.

Queensland Premier Anna Bligh has confirmed that the Australian state's Pacific Film and Television Commission was in negotiations with 20th Century Fox and Walden Media to have the A$150-million (NZ$191m) film, co-produced by Kiwi Andrew Adamson, largely shot in Queensland.

Much of the action in the film takes place at sea, and Warner Roadshow Studios has three film water tanks, including the largest purpose-built tank in Australia.

The Voyage of the Dawn Treader was to have been largely shot at Baja Studios in Mexico, which has a water tank used for Titanic. But ongoing drug wars in the region have made it unsafe.

Adamson directed the first two Narnia films, The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe and Prince Caspian, and some shooting for both was done in New Zealand. He is one of the producers on the third instalment.

Prince Caspian producer Mark Johnson told The Dominion Post last year that neither he nor Adamson had ruled out shooting some scenes for The Voyage of the Dawn Treader here.

Film New Zealand, which promotes New Zealand as a location to make movies, could not say whether The Voyage of the Dawn Treader had made any decision about shooting here.

Film New Zealand chairman Julian Grimmond said Queensland's studio facilities - including water tanks - were a reminder that we needed similar facilities to attract film-makers here.


With all the buzz and excitement about the upcoming Narnia movies - in particular, the third movie in the series, The Voyage of the Dawn Treader - I have decided to start a blog where I can post updates and news about the new Narnia film. It will be a place for me to vent my excitement and enthusiasm, and for you to stay updated on all the latest Narnia news! At least, that's the idea.

I've been trying to think of a clever title for this blog, but I can't think of anything. If you can think of something better and more original than "Chronicles of Narnia Movie News", please leave a comment and I will consider using your suggestion as a new title for the blog.

Well, here goes! :-D
