Can't stop the Narnia

05.03.2005

I'll admit to being pretty out of it when it comes to the fantasy genre but even I won't be able to avoid the debut of the first trailer for THE CHRONICLES OF NARNIA: THE LION, THE WITCH AND THE WARDROBE. Disney is hoping this film will be their answer to the LORD OF THE RINGS trilogy and is pulling out all the stops to bring this trailer to the world. Yes, I said the world This trailer isn't going to just be attached to REVENGE OF THE SITH (which it will be), or just on TV during showings of THE CHAMBER OF SECRETS on ABC (which it will be), or just online (which it will be, exclusively at Moviefone). No this sucker will be EVERYWHERE. In addition to airing during Saturday, May 7th's airing of CHAMBER OF SECRETS on ABC, the trailer will also be simulcast on The Disney Channel and four of the Starz brand cable channels. It will also be available online at Moviefone and on AOL's service. Heck, it'll even be available for download on your Verizon cell phone! You've got no excuse! This type of trailer debut is so intense even the studio is referring to it as a "roadblock" cause you simply can't get around it. As the press release says, this is "the largest potential worldwide audience ever for a theatrical trailer debut, [with] an estimated 200 million+ viewers in 32 countries, 13 languages, across five continents and spanning over 12 time zones." So in other words, more people will see this trailer than saw CURSED. And ELEKTRA. And SON OF THE MASK. Combined. If you're in need of a refresher course in NARNIA lore before the trailer insanity begins, you can check out all our collected coverage here including some exclusive art and our visit to the New Zealand set. Oh and enjoy some art from the film below...
