Tilda Swinton, first choice for the role of Jadis the White Witch, hadn't read the book prior to filming. She wore platform shoes under costume to make her taller, and used a brace on her shoulders between takes to give her a break from the weight of her wig and crown. See more »
When entering the camp there are two long shots of the three, in the first shot Susan has knee socks on, in the second of the shots it looks as if she had no knee socks. See more »
I went to see the new Narnia movie tonight, and I have to say, I was extremely impressed. The story was touching and powerful, the acting was exceptional, and the special effects were amazing! I was never been into fantasy movies until Lord of the Rings came out, which I thought was great. This movie was also very very good. From the beginning of the movie, I felt swept away into the story. I am rarely excited about new movies, but I was about this one, and it totally exceeded my expectations.
I highly recommend this film. It is based on a kid's book, but it appeals to people from every background and age.
I think we are witnessing the beginning of an awesome epic series! 10 Stars!
