Disney Going To Add What Got PWNed

Disney Adds Exclusive Live Action Clips To New Game

This came across my desk and at first I thought of just letting it slide. But then I thought, “Wait there might be people on here that care.” Then I thought further of how I could rant about something and produce some information at the same time. So Here we go.

Just so you don’t have to read the long release below all of this, Disney is placing two Live Action clips in the new Narnia game coming out. Two clips that will not be seen in the Feature Film the game is going to be based around. No my rant will not be about Games based on Films based on Books. Back on topic here. There are something like 18 clips in the game total, including these two. So if you’d rather play through the game instead of watching the movie, I’m sure you’ll get the gist of the film without having to deal with the crying kids. There are also a bunch of other things in the game as well, but I’m going to focus on these “limited” edition clips they are boasting about for the game.

So, why do this? It is my thought that it is an attempt to get a better sell out of a game that is most likely going to be crap. Like the many many other Games based on Movies. By saying that you will get exclusive clips that will only be in the game, they have to be looking for people who think it will be something spectacular. It is the same thing that was tried with the Lord of the Rings Movie Games. Made a big deal about these cool exclusive clips from the film or that you could see certain parts of the film before it was released in theaters. To me this just means that they know it isn’t going to sell and this will drive people to buy it. Just like re-releasing “Closed In The Vault” movies every two to three years. I’ve seen Lady and the Tramp Closed in the vault forever about 6 times to my memory. So either they think us consumers are retarded or they have very lacking security on that vault of their’s.

In the end, I’d highly recommend checking this game out before you rush to get the exclusive clips version of the game. I mean they will be on YouTube or the DVD/BluRay extras soon afterwards. No point in wasting $30 to $50 bucks for like 2 minutes of film just cause they say it is exclusive. The release is below here.

Disney Interactive Studios Introduces Original Scenes Exclusive to Disney/Walden Media’s the Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian Video Game Ben Barnes Reprises Role as Prince Caspian in Two Live Action Filmed Segments

BURBANK, Calif.—(BUSINESS WIRE)—Fans of The Chronicles of Narnia will get to experience two unique film scenes only one way – on their home consoles or Windows-based PC. Disney Interactive Studios announced today that two original scenes for Disney/Walden Media’s The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian video game were filmed exclusively for the product and appear separately from the film. The unique scenes link The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe and Prince Caspian stories with Dr. Cornelius (Vincent Grass) telling Prince Caspian (Ben Barnes) the story of how Narnia fell to the Telmarines hundreds of years ago.

The scenes were shot on the film set in Prague, Czech Republic, during principal shooting and feature dialogue revealing plot based on the events of the book, game and film. The creation of the live action content was directed by Andrew Adamson, the film’s director. The two original scenes are part of 18 live action moments in the game, which include 16 excerpts from the feature film.

“The special filmed content that is exclusive to the video game provides insight into Narnia and the events around the ‘Prince Caspian’ story like nothing else,” said Andrew Adamson. “With movie fans’ enthusiasm for unique experiences in video games as well, these scenes are ideal to complement the ‘Prince Caspian’ game’s action.”

The England-based game production and development teams worked in cooperation with the London-based film crew and Andrew Adamson to assure the game’s overall accuracy to the film. Capturing two original scenes was only possible through the collaborative partnership between Disney Interactive Studios; and Walt Disney Pictures and Walden Media.

“The close partnerships we maintain with our film division and Walden Media allowed us to utilize the cast, crew and set to create two unique scenes exclusively for the video game,” said Ed Bainbridge, vice president of European production, Disney Interactive Studios. “These entertaining and memorable scenes enable us to portray a part of the Narnia history that is drawn from the fiction and played out in the game.”

Developed by Traveller’s Tales, The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian for home consoles and Windows-based PC takes players throughout Narnia and includes a gameplay level, which is unique from both the novel and the film. The level, which is set between the events of “The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe” and “Prince Caspian,” takes place at the castle of Cair Paravel and tells the story of how Narnia fell to the Telmarine hordes. In “Prince Caspian,” Cair Paravel is seen only as abandoned ruins the Pevensies discover hundreds of years later.

The action/adventure game offers gameplay for one or two players on the same system and drop-in/drop-out features, allowing either player to join the game and leave. With combat, exploration and puzzle solving that extends beyond the film, The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian is the ideal complement to the movie-going experience.
