Prince Caspian at Comic Con

Walt Disney Pictures is joining the throng of film producers at this year’s San Diego Comic Con at the end of this month to offer exclusive footage and panel discussions with the filmmakers of The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian and Disney-Pixar’s Wall*E at Comic-Con.

VFX World reported last week that Guests will include Caspian director Andrew Adamson, producer Mark Johnson, Weta Workshop’s Richard Taylor, special make-up and creatures supervisor Howard Berger, visual effects supervisor Dean Wright and costume designer Isis Mussenden, who will answer questions and share their experiences of filming the second Narnia book. Attendees will receive an exclusive Prince Caspian Comic-Con poster, designed by fans on Narnia.com and selected by Adamson.

Storyboards on Prince Caspian have been drawn by Mike Vosburg, artist on comic books such as Tales from the Crypt, and the film’s official blog has several samples of his work for the project.

Prince Caspian opens 16 May, 2008 in the UK and US. Wall*E, a comic robot story, opens 27 June 27 in the US. A UK opening has not been announced.
