Soooooo. Chloe enlightened me to the fact that they are making a new Narnia movie!!!!!! Ok, now let me go scream and freak out in a corner for a bit. Alright I'm done. (for now) I am so excited, because we Narnians are long overdue for another movie, and because I now get to see it in the theater when it comes out, and because I want to cosplay for it, and and and. Anywho, I decided to do a dream cast post for this movie, because there are a few actors I think would work very well for these characters.
Will Poulter as Eustace
Sophie Nelisse as Jill Poll:
It took me awhile to find an actress who I thought would look like Jill, and I actually just remembered Sophie this afternoon. I saw Sophie in The Book Theif, and she was great. Besides, she looks like Jill, and together with Will, they would look great.
Douglas Booth as Prince Rillian:
Ok. So Prince Rillian may *cough cough* be my biggest fictional crush ever. Go ahead and laugh!! I don't care. :) Naturally I was really picky as to who I wanted to play Rillian, and I couldn't think of anyone who I thought would pull Rillian off well. Then I remebered the guy who played in Romeo and Juliet, and thought that he might work! I have never seen Douglas Booth in anything, but I know he plays Romeo in Romeo and Juliet, and he just seems like a Rillian. I mean look at him as Romeo.
Ben Barnes as Caspian X:
Obviously, again. He was the perfect Caspian before, and will be again. However, they will have to CGI him or something, because he has to be like eighty or so, and goodness knows Ben doesn't look eighty. None the less, he will be perfect.
Peter Dinklage as Trumpkin:
Because he was great as Trumpkin before. Although they will have to do a lot to make him look old enough to play Trumpkin in The Silver Chair.
Tom Hiddleston as Puddleglum:
I have seen Tom Hiddleston in Thor as Loki, and he was brilliant. I think that he has the ability to pull of the quirkiness of Puddleglum, with out making him downright mad, or anything else that Puddleglum is not. Runners up for Puddlglum were Geoffry Rush, and Jonny Depp.
And last but not least....
Emily Blunt as The Lady of the Green Kirtle:
In my opinion, the Green Lady should be young, beautiful, and seductive. I mean, Rillian called her the most beautiful thing ever, and she must have been, because he disappeared with her for ten years.. (I know you think it was because Rillian is naive Alicia, but I stand resoloute... ;) Thus my choice of Emily Blunt. Emily is an extremely talented actress, and would be able to pull of the enchanting side of the lady, while still keeping her evil to the core. My runners up for the Green Lady are Cate Blanchett, an Natalie Portman.
So ends my list! Who would you choose for your dream SC cast? Do let me know please! Now I'm going to get a paper bag, 'cause I'm starting to hyperventilate because of excitement. :)
For Narnia, and for Aslan!!
