    VFXWorld.com

    London-based Framestore CFC and Moving Picture Co. (MPC) will be the lead vfx houses on THE CHRONICLES OF NARNIA sequel, PRINCE CASPIAN (a summer 2008 release from Disney’s Buena Vista), reports IGNFILMFORCE and confirmed by the production company. Dean Wright resumes overall vfx supervision. Framestore and MPC have worked on several Hollywood franchises, including HARRY POTTER and X-MEN, and are among several London vfx houses that have recently expanded their 3D character animation.

    Rhythm & Hues, Sony Pictures Imageworks and Industrial Light & Magic collaborated on the vfx for THE CHRONICLES OF NARNIA: THE LION, THE WITCH AND THE WARDROBE.

    Thanks to Narniawebber "TheWhiteWolf" and the , we can confirm that Prince Caspian, code-named "Toastie" (we kid you not), will be shot in Auckland, New Zealand during February and March 2007. This will be followed by a heftier four months of production in Prague, Czech Republic. We do not know of any other confirmed locations at this stage. The Prince Caspian production company is named Wimbleweather Ltd after one of the characters in the story, a Giant.

    The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe was filmed in various locations in New Zealand and the Czech Republic.

      Prince Caspian is Cast!

      UK's Times Online has published an interesting article saying that Ben Barnes, who played Dakin in the National Theatre's "The History Boys," has landed the title role in Walt Disney Pictures and Walden Media's The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian. Problem is, it seems the National Theatre is not too happy about it:

      A spokesperson for the National Theatre said yesterday: "Ben Barnes has decided to leave The History Boys early, before his contract is finished. It is something we are taking very seriously. He has accepted an offer to be in a children's Disney film and we have had to fly Jamie King back at extremely short notice this week."

      Jamie King is replacing Barnes in the production. Another source told the newspaper that Barnes has signed a three-picture deal with Disney for the "Narnia" franchise.
