“Prince Caspian” fans won’t have to wait for the DVD to get bonus footage.
Disney Interactive Studios’ videogame adaptation of the upcoming tentpole from its sibling studio, “The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian,” will feature two exclusive live-action scenes shot by the film’s cast and crew.
Vidgame will be only the second that has featured new scenes with the talent from a tie-in movie. The first was 2003’s “Enter the Matrix,” which had an original story with two of the film trilogy’s supporting characters.
The “Prince Caspian” game’s two new scenes, which total about 2½ minutes in length, are meant to frame an early level that connects the story of “The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe” with its sequel. The game’s other levels mirror the plot of the film and are bookended by live-action scenes from it.
The scenes were directed by pic helmer Andrew Adamson and feature Ben Barnes as Prince Caspian and Vincent Grass as his tutor, Dr. Cornelius.
“We explained what the level would be, and then the movie’s writers came up with the dialogue and the cast and crew shot it for us during breaks in their schedule,” said game exec producer Samantha Parker.
“Caspian” game, which is being developed by Warner Bros.-owned Traveller’s Tales in England, also features extensive set and character designs and other digital assets from the movie. It comes out along with the pic next month.
