NarniaFans.com was created in 2003, with the intent to not only share the Gospel, but also to bring fans together, and report all the latest news on the worlds of C.S. Lewis. With such features as NarniaFansCast: our weekly Podcast discussing Narnia topics in-depth; and a Mailbag that answers questions from around the world. The Dancing Lawn is our discussion forum with thousands of friendly members, and a family-friendly atmosphere. Our outstanding moderators are there to help, and make up much of the incredible creative team that helps NarniaFans stand out as a leader in the Narnia World.
We welcome you through the Wardrobe to enter Narnia with us!
-Paul Martin, Founder and Webmaster
The Goal of Narnia Fans is to deliver the latest news about the films “The Lion, The Witch, and The Wardrobe,” “Prince Caspian” and “The Voyage of the Dawn Treader” to any who wish to know, in a manner that is both spoiler free for those that wish to remain so, and easy to read and understand.
Narnia Fans is a Christian site, run by Christians. Paul Martin (aka Specter) is Roman Catholic, but many of the members are various Christian denominations.
The site was started on December 1, 2003, and opened fully on January 1, 2004. I had not found any Narnia fansites like this, and figured I’d give it a shot, and the rest is history. It’s been changing and growing since then, and will continue to grow indefinitely.

and many many many more individuals that have been a big part of the success of this website. Without all of your support, Narnia Fans would be an empty place, and I’m grateful to every one of you for breathing that much more life into this corner of the web.
Narnia Fans Questions and Answers
WHAT IS THE SPOILER POLICY?
In short: if someone from Walden Media, Disney or Twentieth Century Fox says it, we’ll talk about it freely.
While you may or may not agree with this determination, it should also serve as a warning to folks that are leery of reading anything about LWW, PC or VDT. The Official Site opens the door to free posting on that issue. Here’s a quick rundown on how things break down:
Any and all Narnia.Com announcements – non-spoiler
cast names – non-spoiler
character names – non-spoiler
official photos – non-spoiler
spy photos – spoiler
character descriptions – spoiler
dialogue – spoiler
plot points – spoiler
We will also do our very best to make sure that headlines will not contain what we believe to be spoilers of any kind. We want to honor and respect fans on both sides of the fence, and want to assure you that NarniaFans is a welcome place for both groups.
WHAT ARE SOME OF THOSE ABBREVIATIONS YOU USE?
Here’s a few of the abbreviations you may see on this page:
CON = Chronicles of Narnia
AA = Andrew Adamson
LWW = The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe
PC = Prince Caspian
VDT = The Voyage of the Dawn Treader
SC = The Silver Chair
HHB = The Horse and His Boy
MN = The Magician’s Nephew
LB = The Last Battle
(any initials) = If I get lazy and write actors/crew names as initials, I usually write the whole name at the beginning of the paragraph.
WHAT SOFTWARE DO YOU USE TO PUT THIS WEBSITE TOGETHER?
A variety. I use WordPress, Narniapedia, Adobe Photoshop, Adobe Dreamweaver, and FileZilla.
WILL YOU HOST MY SITE?
If you think that you’ve got a site that would enhance NarniaFans, e-mail us and we’ll take a look!
WILL YOU MAKE ME SOME COOL GRAPHICS?
We really don’t have time for that. If you offered some $$$, some of us might make some time though. 🙂
AREN’T YOU AFRAID (ANDREW ADAMSON, MICHAEL APTED, ETC) WILL USE HIS DARK POWERS AND TRACK YOU DOWN?
Not really, we tend to stay out of their way so they don’t really bother with us. Personally I would hope he likes our site and checks it daily!
CAN I RIP OFF STUFF FROM YOUR PAGE?
We can’t very well keep you from hitting that right mouse button, now, can we? However, if you “Xerox©” our site, we can almost guarantee you won’t get as many hits as you would if you were simply putting up something original.
