“The director of the first film, Andrew Adamson, was very focused on preserving real emotion, on seeing things for the first time, and having, like, a real sense of wonder."
"So he didn’t actually show me the set of Narnia where the lamppost is until we shot it. I was blindfolded and guided into my place, and he told me to just walk around, that the camera would follow me.”
“And so I turned around and I saw it for the first time. It was in a studio but it was ri-dic-ul-ous-ly real. I couldn’t get my head around it. And so what you see is my real reaction to everything. It was incredible.”
The Lion King was mostly created by first-time animators. Many of Disney’s senior animators had zero faith in the project, said “the story wasn’t very good” and “I don’t know who is going to want to watch that one,” and chose to work on Pocahontas instead. Source
We throw around the word never likes its nothing but a small rose petal. The word never is a doubled edged sword. On one side it says ‘I will never leave you’ and on the other it says ‘I will never love you.’
In the first Chronicles of Narnia film,
Georgie Henley’s reactions when she
emerges from the wardrobe into the
snowy world are completely genuine.
She was blindfolded and carried to the
set when they filmed the scene, so both
the actor and the character are seeing
Narnia for the first time. Source
