Gamer.tv has produced a half-hour behind-the-scenes special based on this autumn's eagerly-awaited blockbuster movie The Chronicles Of Narnia: The Lion, The Witch And The Wardrobe and the accompanying video game from Disney offshoot Buena Vista Games.
The documentary, which will air on the UK Bravo Channel on 7 and 9 December , features clips from the film as well as exclusive interviews with its director Andrew Adamson (Shrek I and II) and Douglas Gresham, stepson and heir to Narnia creator CS Lewis. The film opens nationwide in UK cinemas on 8 December.
The documentary takes viewers behind the scenes at developer Travellers' Tales (Lego Star Wars, Crash Bandicoot: The Wrath Of Cortex) and Buena Vista Games, promising a unique insight into the process of creating an interactive experience around the universally acclaimed book and forthcoming film from Walt Disney Pictures.
Says Gresham: "Every child throughout history has longed to go to Narnia - and now they can, without having to use a magical wardrobe."
The documentary, was produced for Buena Vista Games by the Gamer.tv Creative team, and is being distributed in other territories through colleagues at TWI.
"The Chronicles Of Narnia: The Lion, The Witch And The Wardrobe videogame and movie will both be huge this Christmas and Gamer.tv have produced a fascinating insight into how videogames and films are made," said Dave Clarke, Channel Editor, Bravo at BVG.
"The creative team at Gamer.tv has proved time and time again that they know all about creating television for both videogame specific and wider audiences and we're delighted with the results."
Ian Sharpe, Head of Gamer.tv Creative, said: "We're delighted to get this aired on television in the run up to Christmas. Bravo is the perfect place to show a programme that has been captivating millions of young readers for decades, and hopefully, we'll capture the imagination of millions more with a documentary that shows the very best of the film, the book and the game.
"Buena Vista Games originally asked us to chronicle the creation of their biggest game license this year for use in a wide range of marketing activities around the globe and we immediately saw the opportunity to have this aired as a one-off special working in partnership with the broadcasters of our weekly television show, Gamer.tv."
The documentary will air at 5.30 pm on 7 and 9 December on Bravo.
