NarniaCast Ep 7 – The Silver Chair Movie Chat #1 (Various Guests)

NarniaCast SC MOVIEAs you may know, on October 1st Douglas Gresham announced  The Sliver Chair will be the next movie. While this news was not totally unexpected, it was unclear as to when we would hear news of a Narnia 4. Therefore, the planned release of the 7th book discussion on The Last Battle has been delayed. On October 14th William O’Flaherty gathered together some of the previous guests on NarniaCast to talk about the movie announcement.
