We’re headed back to Narnia! It’s been more than 15 years since the Chronicles of Narnia film series first premiered in November 2005, and the cast is all grown up.
The fantasy movies — based on the book series of the same name by C.S. Lewis — followed the four Pevensie children and their various journeys throughout the magical world of Narnia, which included talking animals, and a seriously epic passageway through the back of a wardrobe. The fan-favorite films starred Georgie Henley, William Moseley, Anna Popplewell, Skandar Keynes, Will Poulter, Ben Barnes, James McAvoy and Tilda Swinton, among others. Thankfully, the movies live on Disney+ so we can continue to go on major fantasy adventures.
When the final flick premiered in December 2010, Skandar opened up about the major differences throughout making all three movies.
“The second film was also a big change,” he told CinemaBlend at the time. “Each time, what effects our experience making these films are where we were and who we were with and in that respect, each film was drastically different. A lot of the crew were actually similar throughout the three films and even though you’ve got the different director and different cast, there were the crew that worked on all three films and appreciated them.”
Following his film career, the actor didn’t continue making movies. “I’m actually going to university now,” he told the website. “I’m studying Arabic and Islamic history.”
When discussing his path of study, the former star explained, “It’s what I’m really interested in and I’m really enjoying it and I really want to get my degree. I’m feeling happy right now and I’ll see what happens.”
