Yesterday, during Walt Disney's panel discussion of The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe, at Comic-Con International, the studio confirmed that actor Liam Neeson is now poised to voice the role of 'Aslan the Lion' in the film. Originally, Brian Cox was set to voice the role, but has since been replaced by Neeson.
The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe, a spectacular live-action/CGI motion picture adaptation of C.S. Lewis' beloved literary classic. Lewis' timeless adventure follows the exploits of the four Pevensie siblings - Lucy, Edmund, Susan and Peter - in World War II England who enter the world of Narnia through a magical wardrobe while playing a game of 'hide-and-seek' in the rural country home of an elderly professor. Once there, the children discover a charming, peaceful land inhabited by talking beasts, dwarfs, fauns, centaurs and giants that has become a world cursed to eternal winter by the evil White Witch, Jadis. Under the guidance of a nobel and mystical ruler, the lion Aslan, the children fight to overcome the White Witch's powerful hold over Narnia in a spectacular, climactic battle that will free Narnia from Jadis' icy spell forever.
