    The Saturday schedule was just posted and we're in for even more DVD fun. I hadn't heard this news before but it looks like we're getting a 4-disc Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, The Witch, and The Wardrobe set.

    And if you're into WB Animation, and more particularly the DCAU there is a screening of the new Teen Titans direct to DVD movie.

    On the DCU front, there's a Spotlight on Bruce Timm, who is the producer behind Batman, Superman, Teen Titans and Justice League. He's also working on Superboy and the Legion, and the rumoured New Frontier animated show, based on Darwyn Cooke's series.
