‘Narnia’ Kids Talk ‘Prince Caspian’

ON

I posted my review of The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe Special Edition DVD only a few days ago and I insist that if you found any enjoyment in the film that you pick it up. Also, as many of you likely know plans for a sequel are already planned as Prince Caspian, but according to the kiddies who play the young Pevensie children (Georgie Henley, Skandar Keynes, Anna Popplewell, William Moseley) there are no dates set for production.

USA Today caught up with the kids, here is a clip:

“I found out the sequel (Prince Caspian) was happening through a teacher,” says Skandar Keynes, 14, who portrays Edmund, one of the four Pevensie siblings in the film, which is new on DVD this week. He jokes, “She had the inside knowledge.”

Adds Georgie Henley, 10, who plays Lucy: “My teacher did the same thing to me because she saw it in the newspaper that I said yes (I was going to be in the sequel). I haven’t said no, but I haven’t said yes.”

As for their status on appearing in the second Narnia film, “to be honest, it’s really a verbal contract,” says William Moseley, 18, who plays Peter. “We have been told the sequel is happening, but we have no idea when, we don’t know where and we have no idea how. We just have to sort of sit back and let the big guys work it out.”

The article goes on to say that director Andrew Adamson and screenwriters Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely are working on a Prince Caspian screenplay, and he expects all four young stars to return. The film is scheduled for release in Christmas 2007.
