Official Chronicles Of Narnia DVDFeatures!
Here's the official announcement for the extra features on the upcoming release of Chronicles Of Narnia, The Lion, The Witch & The Wardrobe, from Buena Vista.

A single disc release - available in separate anamorphic widescreen and fullscreen editions - will feature the 140 minute film along with two audio commentaries (with director Andrew and his technical crew, and Adamson with the chuld stars), as well as a "pop-up" trivia track with facts about the books, the film and author C.S. Lewis

The two disc set available in widescreen only, will include the same  plus ten hours of bonus materials on the second disc, including behind the scenes featurettes( "The Chonicles of a Director, The Children's Magic Journey, Cinematic Storytellers, Creating Creatures, Creatures of the World, Anatomy of a Scene: The Melting River, From One Man's Mind), "Explore Narnia" 3D Explorable Map, "Legends in Time" timeline, "Fun Facts of Narnia", concept art galleries, a blooper reel, booklet and special "wardrobe" packaging. Both editions are due on 4th April with the one disc priced at U.S.$19.99 and the two disc $29.99.

See, I knew there was something different about the two disc cover. And you guys think it's just a normal cover. It says right there, special wardrobe packaging!!! Much like the special "Pearl Harbor" DVD packaging! COOL!!!!

It's okay,
the film can get very childish and dull at times though.

Normally I wouldn't bother or try to impose, but this was a lot of fun for me - If anyone's interested, I took in a private viewing of the upcoming special edition disc for Narnia today as well as the Chicken Little one.

A look at the adventure can be found here.

It was a blast. A tonne of fun. Their offices alone was an experience, let alone seeing the  disc.

I'd hold off on buying this for no if you want a better edition!  I just read over at The Digital Bits that Disney is considering releasing an extended version of the movie on DVD later this year.  
So all of you fellow double-dipping haters just hold on to your loot!

Jonny I must say that it certainly was a blast. For those of you interested I've found out for certain that this upcoming release will not feature the infamous SNL skit The Chonic-WHAT-cles of Narnia Sad

Yes I imagined they would do something like that since The Lord Of the Rings trilogy seems to be their marketing template.  I'll probably get the single disk at any rate.

Really enjoyed this film.  Anyone who didn't is a truly joyless individual!
