“Chronicles of Narnia” hosts a World Premiere fit for the Queen

By Sean O’Connell Actual snow – and lots of it – fell on the red carpet in London’s Leicester Square last night as 20th Century Fox hosted its world premiere for Michael Apted’s “The Chronicles of Narnia: The Voyage of the Dawn Treader.”

The third installment in the fantasy film franchise based on the novels of C.S. Lewis finds Edmund (Skandar Keynes) and Lucy Pevensie (Georgie Henley) traveling back to Narnia with cousin Eustace (Will Poulter) in tow for another adventure alongside King Caspian (Ben Barnes), rodent warrior Reepicheep, and the lion Aslan (Liam Neeson).

The entire cast was in attendance for the premiere, as was a very special guest. Queen Elizabeth II, accompanied by the Duke of Edinburgh, attended the Royal Premiere, as it benefitted the Cinema and Television Benevolent Fund. The Queen, who stayed for the film, even wore her 3D glasses to experience “Narnia” in another dimension. It was a sight to see!

I have photos from the red carpet, as was in attendance. We’ll have more on “Narnia” as the film approaches, including interviews with cast member Neeson, Henley, Keynes and Poulter. “The Chronicles of Narnia” opens everywhere on Dec. 10.
