Narnia Comes In With A Roar
The DVD of Disney's The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe hits retailers and "rentailers" today (Tuesday) in two versions. The single-disc DVD includes a running commentary on the film by director Andrew Adamson and the four young stars, Georgie Henley, Skandar Keynes, William Moseley and Anna Popplewell. The disc also includes a blooper reel and "pop ups" about the movie. A special edition two-disc version includes some 10 hours of features. In a press release, Disney's Buena Vista Home Entertainment said, "The Narnia DVD production team worked with the filmmakers from the very start of the film's production, resulting in exclusive, never-before-seen bonus features that deliver unprecedented access into this cinematic blockbuster." The movie will do battle in the video stores with Universal's King Kong, which sold 6.5 million copies last week, representing a gross of $100 million -- a new DVD record for the company. Universal studios Home Entertainment President Craig Kornblau said in a statement on Monday that King Kong had sold more DVDs in its first six days than any other film in the studio's history.
