The White Witch


The first of the new Narnia movies starts filming June 28 with a scheduled US release for December 2005. Banners from a New York licensing show are a first glimpse into this new interpretation of Lewis' world.

The level of detail shown in these banners is promising. It's looking more and more like the level of care taken with The Lord of the Rings Trilogy. This is great news for Narnia fans all around the world. We've been waiting for a long time to see great films of the books we know and love, and this production is shaping up to be a dream come true.

This is the first I have learned Tilda Swinton is cast as the White Witch. If you have seen The Beach or The Last of England you know how creepy she can be. Perfect.

It's been what? 24 years or so since I read those books (in third grade ... they were actually assigned). It was my first introduction into the world of Fantasy literature. Time for a re-read. And brace yourself for the inevitable religious controversy.
