The movie is scheduled to release on 9 December 2005 and is one of the most eagerly awaited films of the holiday season.

In addition to Moviefone.com, features about the film will be promoted across the AOL network including the AOL Welcome Screen, AOL.com, AOL Music, AOL Television, AOL CityGuide and Red for Teens.

The online destination, The World of Narnia -- available at http://www.moviefone.com/Narnia -- launches the world-exclusive debut of the new theatrical trailer today.
