Q: Hey I was just wondering. From what I've been reading it seems that the filming for Prince Caspian will be from like February to spring. That's only a few months! Do you think that will be enough time to get everything right? I seem to recall that LWW took like 6 or 7 months to film. I was just a little worried they might not have time to do everything they want to do and might have to rush some things. What do you think?
A: Well Seth, the Schedule of filming does go from the middle of February until about June, which is nearly five months. They have many people that have been working on it, and they make schedules for the filming. I think they'll have plenty of time to get everything that they want into the film. LWW didn't take much longer to film, plus they were filming in sequence. We have yet to see how they are going to film Prince Caspian, but the story doesn't need to be filmed in sequence due to a few stories that feature different characters.
Q: Hi I love this Website it's nice knowing there are other "Narnia Freaks" besides myself.
Do you think they will have Flashbacks in the movies for example King Caspian the First invading Narnia or (in the Horse and His Boy) King Olvin of Archenland defeating the giant Pire by turning him to stone creating Mount Pire.
thanks a million

A: Thanks! I don't know if they'll have flashbacks, but Prince Caspian could be a great place to start, and it might even be necessary to the story. This is a technique that was done to great success in The Lord of the Rings, and I can definitely see it happening here. Prince Caspian, together with The Voyage of the Dawn Treader and The Silver Chair is a very epic story that flashbacks may serve very well. It would certainly enhance the story, and make things more exciting than shortening parts of the story to a few lines of dialogue.
Q: Hi guys! First of all, I would like to wish you all a very happy Christmas full of peace and love. I've always had a doubt that I hope you can solve. If Lewis name was Clive, why did they call him Jack? Does anybody know? Thank you very much.

A: Here's a pretty interesting question, with an even more interesting answer. According to Wikipedia:
At the age of four, shortly after his dog Jacksie was hit by a car, Lewis announced that his name was now Jacksie. At first he would answer to no other name, but later accepted Jacks which became Jack, the name by which he was known to friends and family for the rest of his life.
Q: Hello again, NarniaFans! Glad to be able to ask another question. :P

My friend just bought me the 4-Disc Extended Edition of LWW, sealed with the plastic and all. I read the back and noticed that it depicted *and* mentioned a guidebook, but when I opened the case and everything, where the little pocket is on the right, there was no guidebook at all. I was really looking forward to this....I couldn't find a way to contact Disney, or whoever deserves to be contacted for this. Is there any way you can help me? Thank you so much.
A: This is a very good question... and one that deserves a solid answer. Please use the Disney DVD Problem Reporting page. You can also find a phone number with extremely helpful customer service on the face of the DVD. Be sure to have your DVD handy, as they'll ask you to verify your DVD.
And that's it for Mailbag #21!
