Although there may well be no more Narnia films after Dawn Treader is released in 2010, there certainly seems to be enough being filmed when it comes to the upcoming Prince Caspian, with ans of The Chronicles of Narnia will get to experience two unique film scenes only one way – on their home consoles or Windows-based PC.
Disney Interactive Studios has announced that two original scenes for Disney/Walden Media’s The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian video game were filmed exclusively for the product and appear separately from the film. The unique scenes link The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe and Prince Caspian stories, with Doctor Cornelius (played by Vincent Grass) telling Prince Caspian (Ben Barnes) the story of how Narnia fell to the Telmarines hundreds of years ago. It’s invasion is a sequence not featured in the books.
The scenes, directed by Andrew Adamson, the film’s director, were shot on the film set in Prague, Czech Republic, during principal shooting and feature dialogue revealing plot based on the events of the book, game and film and are part of 18 live action moments in the game, which include 16 excerpts from the feature film.
“The special filmed content that is exclusive to the video game provides insight into Narnia and the events around the ‘Prince Caspian’ story like nothing else,” said Andrew Adamson. “With movie fans’ enthusiasm for unique experiences in video games as well, these scenes are ideal to complement the ‘Prince Caspian’ game’s action.”
Traveller’s Tales, the British-based game production and development teams, worked in cooperation with the London-based film crew and Andrew Adamson to assure the game’s overall accuracy to the film, with the new linking scene taking place at the castle of Cair Paravel, seen only as abandoned ruins the Pevensies discover hundreds of years later in the Prince Caspian film.
