Behind Narnia

FX house releases a behind-the-scenes feature.

WETA, the New Zealand based effects house famous for its work on The Lord of the Rings trilogy, has posted a feature that takes us behind-the-scenes on its new project The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe.

The film, the first in Walden Media/Disney's planned adaptations of CS Lewis's Chronicles of Narnia, will be released in December 2005. The majority of the novels were previously adapted for television in the 80s and screened by the BBC.

The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe, has just wrapped in New Zealand and features the talents of Rupert Everett, Dawn French, Tilda Swinton and Brian Cox as the voice of Aslan.

Click on the link to watch the feature, which includes the 'interesting' tones of the Head of WETA and 'the movie trailer man with the booming voice' saying 'Nanny-a' all the time.
