It's been officially announced to retailers that The Lion, the Witch & the Wardrobe will be released on April 4.

It'll be the usual - widescreen and fullscreen versions, and then for a few extra bucks, you can get a widescreen "Collector's Edition" - that probably means a bonus disc while the regular edition goes bonus-less and almost feature-less. The Coll.Ed. will run you about $5.00 more.

I'm expecting Kong to be announced very soon - it's supposed to street a week or two before Narnia.

Cheers.

Definitely the CE for me. Best movie I saw last year (with Fantastic Four running a close second). I can't wait for Prince Caspian!

The Collector's Edition should come with some cupcakes... Posted Image

Three truths about movies, as noted by Roger Ebert:

 

* It's not what a movie is about, it's how it is about it.

* No good movie is too long, and no bad movie is short enough.

* No good movie is depressing, all bad movies are depressing.

Um - maybe I'm forgetting something, but why cupcakes?
Now, Turkish Delight would make sense, but I can't remember any cupcakes in the story...

Craig is talking about the Chronicles of Narnia short that SNL did a few weeks ago. Very funny stuff.

Oh, OK. Thanks.
Any chance of a quick explanation of the joke? Or is it one that just loses the humour in the translation?

"And now the reprimand, from an American critic. He reproaches me for using film as a sacred & lasting medium, like a painting or a book. He does not believe that filmmaking is an inferior art, but he believes, and quite rightly, that a reel goes quickly, that the public are looking above all for relaxation, that film is fragile and that it is pretentious to express the power of one's soul by such ephemeral and delicate means, that Charlie Chaplin's or Buster Keaton's first films can only be seen on very rare and badly spoiled prints. I add that the cinema is making daily progress and that eventually films that we consider marvelous today will soon be forgotten because of new dimensions & colour. This is true. But for 4 weeks this film [The Blood of a Poet] has been shown to audiences that have been so attentive, so eager & so warm, that I wonder after all there is not an anonymous public who are looking for more than relaxation in the cinema." - Jean Cocteau, 1932

The DVD should include the SNL skit as a bonus or hidden feature. Narnia wanted to the next LOTR, and those discs had great, irreverant comedy bits on them. Unfortunately, I don't have faith that Disney will be hip enough to include it.

This is one setup I'll be happy to own. If Disney's smart they'll include the Chronic-WHAT-cles of Narnia on there.

I heard their will be a scene where Frodo gets bitch-slapped by the talking Beaver. Posted Image
Bring back John Doe! Or at least resolve the cliff-hanger with a 2hr movie or as an extra on a dvd release.

I highly doubt it.

"And now the reprimand, from an American critic. He reproaches me for using film as a sacred & lasting medium, like a painting or a book.

I would love it if Narnia got similar releases to what LOTR got.

I'll definitely wait for a High Def version of this. I just hope it doesn't take too long, I really liked this movie.

The two-disc art is fantastic.
