The Chronicles of Narnia Movie Premier


.One of the most eagerly anticipated and biggest films of the year, “The
Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe” is to have
its World Premiere in London in the presence of TRH The Prince of Wales
and The Duchess of Cornwall on Wednesday December 7th at the Royal
Albert Hall. The film has been honoured as the selection for the
prestigious 2005 Royal Film Performance in aid of the Cinema and
Television Benevolent Fund.

The announcement that the big screen version of C.S.Lewis’ much loved
classic and international best-seller will have its premiere in the UK
was made today by Walt Disney Studios, Walden Media, the CTBF and
Clarence House.

No effort will be spared to turn the Royal Albert Hall into a
spectacular film palace for the evening, with a glamorous white carpet
replacing the traditional premiere red carpet, and a magical winter
wonderland setting for the magnificent party to be held afterwards in a
massive marquee in Kensington Gardens for the thousands of international
guests who will be attending. Celebrity guests from around the world
will be the first to see the epic big-screen version of this
much-cherished story.

The organisers will also be ensuring access to the event for an
unusually large number of members of the public. Although access to
royal film premieres is normally restricted to invited guests and
charity donors, large numbers of affordable seats will be offered for
sale to the public and grandstand seating will be set up for fans to
watch the celebrity arrivals in comfort.

Walt Disney Pictures/Walden Media’s “The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion,
The Witch, and The Wardrobe,” is released in the UK by Buena Vista
International (UK) Ltd and opens in cinemas everywhere on December 8th
2005. Directed by Andrew Adamson (“Shrek,” “Shrek 2”) and produced by
Mark Johnson (“The Rookie,” “Rain Man”), the film stars Tilda Swinton,
James McAvoy, Rupert Everett, Jim Broadbent, Ray Winstone, Dawn French,
Liam Neeson, Georgie Henley, Skandar Keynes, William Mosely and Anna
Popplewell.. ]]>
