The Lion, the Witch, and New Zealand

Nzoom.com, the homepage for New Zealanders, reports:

Hard on the heels of the success of the Lord of the Rings trilogy, it has been confirmed that another epic fantasy will be filmed in New Zealand.

New Zealand director Andrew Adamson, the man behind Shrek, will bring to life the C.S Lewis classic The Lion, the Witch and The Wardrobe with a budget of more than $150 million.

My thoughts:

  • Huzzah! The Chronicles of Narnia on the big screen! (Yes, I know there have been movies, and yes, they delighted me in my youth, but please. They were made for television.)
  • The man behind… “Shrek”? Well, we’ll see.
  • Funny how New Zealand is basically the Shared Vision of Our Heroic Past now. From “Hercules: The Legendary Journeys” to “The Return of the King,” if it’s not New Zealand, it must not be epic!
  • A mountaineer friend remarked, after seeing the stunning mountain vistas in ROTK: “I don’t know… some of them looked awfully Himalayan.”
  • I take it back. There’s nothing inherently heroic about New Zealand. It’s just the landscape that’s easiest to digitally augment with mountains, towers, samurai, talking lions, etc.
  • Actually, no. I was right the first time. There is something inherently heroic about New Zealand.
  • And it’s not just the mountains. New Zealand subsidizes film like crazy.

Dear Mr. Adamson,

I am hoping that somehow, you will receive this message....first...I have just seen the premier trailor for Narnia. I am so moved...the Tree of Life on the wardrobe door (or is doors?), the perfect embodiment of little Lucy...and Aslan...I can only begin to imagine when the movie is released in full to the public.

I am 40 years old and you have brought back a wonderful memory of childhood dreams and escaping every day life to a place that STILL feels real in my heart...with just the trailor having that effect on me it is most deffinite that I will be bringing a box of tissues!

Second, I have a wish...that you would be inspired to turn Terry Brooks' "Magic Kingdom For Sale, Sold!" into a movie as well.

Thank you,

R.F. Ghilespi

I just saw the teaser trailer for Narnia today. All i could think about while I was sitting through star wars was that trailer. If Mr. Adamson reads this, i wanted to tell him. I live in Indiana, and have been riding horses for 8 years. If he ever needs and extra for one of his movies that rides, please let me kno. I need no payment, just the wonderful experiance of traveling to another world in a fantasy film. Thank you,

For the record, we have no special access to Andrew Adamson here... but I love getting these comments from Narnia hopefuls, so keep 'em coming if you've got 'em.

Who's up for Reepicheep??

Andrew- I love the Chronicles of Narnia! I'd like to be so called "email buddies". Email me and tell me if you want to be email buddies.

Mr. Adamson. If this is you PLEASE ANSWER. I think I'm asking a dumb question but if you have any spots open for king Caspian in the Voyage of the Dawn Treader? I'm 6'3" and very strong. You don't even have to pay me anything,I do my own stunts ( I'll do anything for nothing and I mean anything ) I know the book by heart so I don't need a script. I have to close

Dear Mr. Adamson,
I think making a new movie of Prince Chaspian and I was wondering if you needed a part for Prince Chaspian. I would love to play as him. I'm 5" 7" and have enough talents with a sword. I have watch "The lion, the witch, and the wardrobe" over and over reviewing what kind of thing I can expect out of it. I'm really familiar of the book and I love it too. I have practiced with a sword for many years and I don't want it to go to waste. If you can see this e-mail, try contacting me at kennyleearmstrong@hotmail.com.

Dear Andrew Adamson with team if you actually read this.

My name is Christina, im only 16 years old, im not English. Narnia is my bible. I Love Narnia. I find myself looking for hidden dimensions, hidden wardrobes to walk trough. Oh how i wish i could play a part in Narnia. I just wanted you to know, i got no experience, as we don't learn that her in Norway, we learn that Norwegian kids have no hope to became famous actors. I realy love to play, i can to. Just haven't got the change. But if you ever would be needy for a actor for Narnia, I want the chance.
Love from a Narnian knights heart

Posted by: Christina on May 22, 2007 at 02:11 PM

Dear Mr.Adamson,
Thank you for making the movie of Prince Caspian. I was waiting for that since my entire life! This was my favorite book out of all the other Narnia books. Do you have the same cast as the Lion,the Witch and the Wardrobe which are the four children: Peter, Susan, Edmund, and Lucy? They are really good actors/actresses and the movie would not be good without them. PLEASE EMAIL ME after reading this comment. Tell your super cool members cast about my message. They would like to hear it. Thank you.

Your True Narnian,
Peter Cheung
