So I'm still having a lot of Narnia cast feelings. I'm not entirely sure where this came from. I have this theory that because there were about three years between each movie, it's a sort of biological clock thing? Like some part of me recognises that three years have passed and there has not been a Narnia fandom resurgence and so it's like. Psst. Hey. HEY. IT'S NARNIA FANDOM TIME.

Or something. Alternatively, as [livejournal.com profile] starsimpulse put it, "Narnia is like this old flame that you keep going back to for comfort and embarrassing sex."

Anyway I've been getting super nostalgic and missing the days of talking about the Narnia cast on LJ and then I kind of realised that I can still do that?? So this is going to be kind of an update post where I talk about what everybody is up to these days. Maybe? Let's see.

News about Anna, Georgie, Skandar, Will, Ben, and Will P. under the cut. Also pictures and screencaps and stuff. )

Okay I think that's everything? I mean it's probably not everything, but it seems like a reasonable summary.

Somehow I've ended up making gifs of the Prince Caspian DVD commentary on Tumblr, and in order to do that, I basically transcribed all the cute/funny/interesting parts of the commentary. I feel like since I went to the effort I should probably post all of that here, like I did for the LWW one a few years back! I always meant to do it because the only other post I'd made on the PC commentary was when I first listened to it and I don't think I went into much detail. And I'm really determined to try and drag as many people as I can back into this fandom with me.

Oh oh, also! The wonderful [livejournal.com profile] prunesquallormd finally finished his epic Lucy/Susan fic, With A Clouded View, and you should all go read it right away if you're interested in that kind of thing, because it's utterly lovely and he worked really hard on it for a really long time. ♥ Edit: I forgot to mention it's also on AO3, here!

So. I bought the Dawn Treader DVD and I probably should have waited for a two-disc special edition of some sort because IT KIND OF REALLY SUCKS. The special features are basically just deleted scenes and commentary with Michael and Mark, plus music videos that I don't care about. FAIL. >:(

I'll probably end up listening to the commentary anyway because I suppose they might tell some cute stories about the cast but it's nowhere near as good as actually hearing the cast interact themselves and I'M STILL REALLY CROSS/SAD ABOUT THIS OKAY, THE COMMENTARY IS MY FAVOURITE PART. There aren't even any behind the scenes things. Apparently there's more on the Blu-Ray or something? And from what I can tell there's going to be a special edition version at some point in the future, but. Sigh.

Well, I watched the deleted scenes tonight and took a few caps and thought I'd talk about them anyway.

In case you don't have the DVD yet and are avoiding spoiling it for yourself,

other things. )

I SAW DAWN TREADER TONIGHT.

HEARTS. HEARTS IN MY EYES, YOU GUYS.

I am sitting here now with a mug of cocoa all teary-eyed and smiling to myself. I don't know why these movies have such an effect on me, they just do. Something to do with how much the fandom means to me, combined with the fact that I've basically grown up with the movies (moreso than the books even, through my teenage years at least). Idk. They just make me so happy.

When we came out of the cinema, though, my Mum did say "Did it live up to your expectations?" and I realised that it would have been pretty difficult for it not to. Not because my expectations were low, obvs, but because it would have been impressive if they'd managed to disappoint me. I kiiind of love everything they do, so. I'm not the best impartial judge.

I also spent at least half of the movie just mentally drawing hearts around everybody and gazing in wonder at how pretty (and in love) they all are. SO PRETTY. (AND IN LOVE.)

I think with Prince Caspian, I waited til I'd seen it twice before attempting to make a coherent post about it, but...I don't know when I'm going to get to see it again and I'm still on a high.

So here is my attempt at a review-type thing. And it has spoilers. And is kinda longer than I meant for it to be. )

Okay...I'm sure I've forgotten like thirty more things. BUT THIS IS A REALLY LONG POST ALREADY, SO. IDK. IF YOU'VE SEEN THE MOVIE, PLEASE SQUEE WITH ME. THERE IS MUCH SQUEEING TO BE DONE.
