I know that there’s really no way to avoid it, but lots of the imagery found here in the new Chronicles of Narnia one sheet just screams Lord of the Rings. Though, with the brilliant minds at Weta hard at work on this sucker, I suppose it’d be difficult for it not to. Still, that kind of raises the notion as to whether or not Disney will be able to market this to those unfamiliar with C.S. Lewis’ classic books as something that isn’t just a LOTR/Harry Potter knockoff (and unfortunately, there are those who haven’t a clue who Lewis is or that these books even exist). Time will tell, I guess.

For now, feast your eyes on this bad boy (the design of which I do enjoy). The Chronicles of Narnia: The Longest Title Ever Since Dr. Strangelove Or: How I Learned To Stop Worrying And Love The Bomb opens in theaters December 9th.
