When I was younger I really enjoyed C.S. Lewis’ Chronicles of Narnia. Well, it turns out they are making a series of movies out of them. Starting with the Lion and the Witch and the Wardrobe. There have been a few attempts at making these movies before, and those which I have seen were not too impressive. Turns out Disney and WETA are behind this one. WETA are the fine folks who did the effects in the Lord of the Rings trilogy.
One thing I really like about WETA is they go the extra mile in props. They put in the details that only the actors will see because they know that the actors will be in character better when they have good props.
