They said it couldn’t be done. Some even begged and pleased that it not be done. Seriously. Some of you yelled, screamed and insisted we never, ever do this again. But one way or another April 1st came around again and as sure as the snow melts in the spring, we at NarniaFans pulled off another April Fools. Most of you actually enjoy this and enjoy the fun we have.
Back in 2003, scientists discovered a skeleton ion the Indonesian island of Flores that was affectionately nicknamed ‘The Hobbit”. The skeleton’s remains were like that of a human, but smaller, but not to the extent of dwarfism, hence the name .While this was no conclusive evidence that Hobbits exists, paleontologists from Europe have discovered what appears to be the remains of a faun, not unlike Mr. Tumnus from Narnia.
We received a spy report from NarniaFan Son of Coul saying that Ictus Studios, an independent Christian film studio is very interested in not only rebooting the Narnia films, but incorporating it into a “shared universe” with The Lord of the Rings, Les Miserables, The Bibleman DVD’s and even the Left Behind series. Other classic books slated to be part of this franchise include This Present Darkness, Ted Dekker’s Showdown Trilogy, and John Bunyan’s Pilgrim’s Progress.
With a new Star Trek movie out this summer, and another Star Wars film in the works, it only marks one thing for film studios: science fiction is making a huge comeback. Perhaps the best evidence we see of this is that 20tH Century Fox has decided to adapt CS Lewis’ Space Trilogy as a TV mini-series. Read the rest of this entry »
In an unfortu-, I mean unforseen series of events, it has been reported to NarniaFans that two of today’s most popular teenage singers/actors have been signed on as actors in The Magician’s Nephew! Justin Bieber, possibly the greatest teenage heartthrob of all time, has been cast as Digory Kirke. As his loyal fans (loyal is an understatement) say: “Beiber is amazing, he is this generations Batch, Bathoven and Moesart!” Justin is reported to be extremely excited about this role; he is already practicing his lines by putting them to music. He will also be recording a single to be played in the credits of the movie; rumors are that the single is titled “Never Eat Apples.” (UPDATE-lyrics can be found at the bottom of this post!)
For a while now we have heard rumblings of a Screwtape Letters movie in the works. We have heard announcements for the director, the producer and the screen writer, but we have yet to learn who is going to play this roll.
Over the past month we’ve been reporting that 20th Century Fox and Walden Media were discussing the possibility of filming the Magician’s Nephew as the next Narnia movie. A trusted source has just sent us word about how “serious” these talks may be. A memo was sent out to the casting director from 20th Century Fox and Walden Media to begin looking at actors who can play a “mad scientist –type” and do it in a way to make sure it isn’t too campy, for “the forth Narnia film.” There is only one “mad scientist-type in Narnia, and that is Andrew Ketterley the uncle of Digory Kirke.
NarniaSpy HannahMontana4Ever(andeverandeverandever) sent us a spy report that Hannah Montana actress, Miley Cyrus is heavily interested in playing the roll of Jadis’s sister in The Magician’s Nephew. The reports says that Miley is greatly considering how to move forward in her post Hannah acting career, but realizes past choices have turned off her fans.
Hey, folks, Jonathon here. Yes, April 1st as come and gone, leaving in it’s wake plenty of jokes for us to talk about for years to come.
First, yes, for those of you who are always on the ball (and I hope you all are) there was a slight alteration to the site’s logo. Namely that it was NarniaWeb, not NarniaFans. A quick trip over to our sister-site would have read NarniaFans instead of NarniaWeb. Paul Martin and David Hollander (the webmaster at NarniaWeb.com) switched logos for the day. This one I had nothing to do with. It is so simple, yet so complex and I tip my hat to them for this one.
Mattel to release “Ken and Barbie Dolls” as “Caspian and Ramandu’s Daughter!” Spy “Sid Phillips” just sent us an exclusive report, informing us that toy giant Mattel has announced that the popular toy couple, Ken and Barbie will be slated to have a tie-in with another popular couple, Caspian and Ramandu’s Daughter!
